  • Year 6 Transition Days

    Published 02/07/18

    Last Thursday, we welcomed 159 Year 6 pupils into Fisher More who will be our Class of 2018.

     The pupils had a taste of lessons from right across the curriculum to help them feel ‘secondary ready’ and give them a taste of what is to come as they move on from primary to secondary.  They had lunch provided on both days which seemed to go down really well – a real appetiser for all that is to come in September.

  • Murder, Mystery and Mayhem at Fisher More!

    Published 25/06/18

    Murder, Mystery and Mayhem at Fisher More!

    Crime and punishment became compulsory for Years 7, 8 and 9 this week at Fisher More. Don’t worry parents: your perfectly behaved sons and daughters were not encouraged to start a crime spree in the East Lancashire area. Instead, every department in the school provided ‘law-breaking’ lessons for all Key Stage 3 pupils.

    Teachers and pupils alike revelled in the mayhem that followed:

    The blood was pumping and the adrenaline racing in PE as pupils attempted their very own ‘Prison Break’. Scouring the school for clues, pupils raced against time to break free or be rehabilitated to return to the ‘gen-pop’!

    Science was transformed into an episode of CSI for the day. Budding forensic scientists learnt to look beyond the obvious, and hard evidence was searched for under the microscope and in the test tube.

    In English, pupils were asked to solve the 2500 year old murder of the Athenian hoplite, Agathon. Sifting through the various clues and evidence with the keen eye of a young Sherlock Holmes, pupils were full of bright ideas and wild speculation. Never let the truth get in the way of a good story!

    In Maths, we discovered a certain ‘Harry Potter’ character should not be let near sharp objects! Could our pupils crack the code? Of course they could!

    Wanted posters were springing up in Art with a few likely characters putting inflated prices on their own heads. If there is a spate of graffiti in the Pendle area, we are certain our pupils are not to blame, despite showing real promise in their Graphics lessons.

    Hopefully not a taste of the future but in Food Technology pupils were asked to construct a dish for a prison menu for just £1! No files were found in cakes but garlic doughballs with cheese seemed to hit the spot.

  • Enrichment Week 20–22 June 2018

    Published 07/06/18

    Enrichment Week: 20 – 22 June 2018

    Our highly anticipated Enrichment Week is fast approaching, a week that has been designed to engage, inspire and motivate our students and enhance our formal curriculum.  The Enrichment sessions will offer extra-curricular opportunities for students to extend their knowledge and understanding of, and improve their skills in, a range curriculum areas including creative, artistic and sporting activities.  Enrichment is an essential part of the school’s teaching and learning programme, allowing extension beyond normal academic pursuits and requirements of the syllabus.  Our Enrichment Week will give our staff the freedom to promote a love of learning in their subject above all else.  Therefore, we will be collapsing the timetable for Enrichment Week so that students are able to experience exciting activities and develop new skills in ways that would take longer than the usual 50 minute lesson.
