My take on what you've shown here is that you've got it a bit backwards.
Apologies if you've tried many things and you settled on this on
purpose, but it looks like you're trying to organize the Org file to
look like the Agenda.

It took me a while to get used to this, too. I think you'll find the Org
tools work better if you forget about what the file itself looks like,
and just look at the Agenda. So your Org file would look like:

* All to Do [1/1]
** finished iron the cat <2015-08-11 Tue>

And the Agenda will show you everything under its proper date heading.

I've got scheduling Org files I hardly ever look at directly: todos go
in with capture, and are examined, resolved and archived via the Agenda.
It can be freeing, once you let the file itself go!
