Year 10 Basketball Clinic February 2014

February 26, 2014 in Front Page News by AMA

Basketball clinic headerOn 10th February, 13 year 10 students from Aston Manor Academy attended a basketball clinic run by the Birmingham Knights.

Students were enthused by the coaching skills of Dougie Douglas and put to work in a series of skills sessions.

After a morning of defence, dribbling, shooting, conditioning and passing, the students were able to utilise their skills in a competitive tournament.

It was great to see the students working well within their teams and showing good understanding of the game as a whole.

The teams battled it out for first place after participating in the pool competition.

Venetia McFarlane was on the winning team and scored most of the teams baskets which is to be commended. She will now have the fantastic opportunity to attend a special training session in the near further with the Birmingham Knights players.

Well done to all students who participated in this day.

STEM Club Trip to Thinktank

February 24, 2014 in Front Page News by S Dooley

On Tuesday the 11th of February 10 lucky STEM Club members were fortunate enough to visit Think Tank for the day to participate in a variety of activities related to STEM. The activities included making animations using specialist IT software and learning how to program robots. The students also had a great time exploring the Science garden which includes a life sized hamster wheel. To top off the day, the group watched a 3D film based on space junk and how to tackle the issue of mounting satellite debris and other objects that surround the earth’s atmosphere. Overall it was a great day despite the terrible weather!
