Year 5/6 2016-17

Welcome to Year 5/6


Clip n’ Climb and the Fun Shack

On Wednesday Year 6 visited Clip n’ Climb and the Fun Shack in Stockton, an amazing day was had by all. The staff at the venue were complimentary about the behaviour and manners of our pupils and said that “Hasting Hill Academy pupils were welcome back anytime to the venue.” The children had 21 walls to climb, with different levels of challenge which they climbed with agility and speed. The staff at Clip n’ Climb were very impressed with those children, who at first were nervous of climbing but by the end of the session were climbing like experts.


Celebrating Easter

Year 6 enjoyed making Easter pinatas, which they displayed outside KS2.


Year 6 Visit to the Baltic, Centre for Contemporary Art

As part of our USA topic work, we visited the Baltic and participated in a Pop Art workshop using paint and print-making to create our own Pop Art. We then looked at the work of other artists in the gallery and discussed our opinions of their work.
