Year 6 visit Mildenhall College Academy!

29th September 2017

On Friday 29th September Year 6, Miss Hunt and Mrs Airey visited Mildenhall College Academy (MCA) for a Music Workshop. The MCA mini buses picked us up from Isleham and we enjoyed the short bus ride. On arrival we were welcomed by the MCA Principal, Ms Byles. Here, Ms Byles told us all about the school and the exciting plans for the MCA new school and the school's plans for the future. Ms Byles was very impressed by our ambitious career aspirations. There was a lot to see on our way to the music department and everyone was friendly and welcoming. Our workshop was led by Mrs Sayer, Mrs Wright and a super student named Tyler. We all had an African djembe drum each and we were taught different call and response rhythms. We were taught three different drumming techniques and were able to combine these with different rhythms. Also, we used improvisation and a few dance movements to represent each drumming technique. A great time was had by all! Thank you Ms Byles, Mrs Sayer, Mrs Wright, Tyler and to everyone at MCA who made our experience so brilliant. Take a look at the videos of us drumming on the Year 6 page of the school website.
