Welcome to the penultimate mini concert of the term, and once again, it has been wonderful to receive so many lovely performances from children across the school, from beginner through to our much more experienced Form 8 musicians. Well done to everyone who took part and we are beginning to hear some familiar Christmas tunes in the Music School this week as we begin to get ready for our Christmas Concerts which will be available online once again. Thank you for watching!

Arithmetic techniques and time saving tricks

Working quickly on paper and being able to carry out calculations in one’s head are useful skills.

The ISEB Mathematics Common Entrance examinations from Autumn 2022 are changing their aural mental arithmetic examination to a quick-fire written exam where pupils are tested on 40 short arithmetic questions in 10 minutes.

Some helpful time saving tricks are listed below. These are types of questions set at CE level but also taught lower down the school with appropriate numbers for the age group.

Double and halving

Example 1)

Twenty-four books are bought at a cost of £3.50 each. What is the total cost?

Working

24 × 3.50

÷ 2 × 2

= 12 × 7

= £84

Example 2)

Sixteen lollies are bought at a cost of £2.25 each. What is the total cost?

Working

16 × 2.25

÷ 2 × 2

= 8 × 4.50

÷ 2 × 2

= 4 × 9

= £36

Further examples

68 × 5 = 34 × 10 = 340 16 × 15 = 8 × 30 = 240 52 × 25 = 26 × 50 = 13 × 100 = 1300


Multiplying by 9, 19, 21, 29 etc.

19 footballs are bought at a cost of £25 each. What is the total cost?

Working

19 × £25 (19 lots of 25)

= 20 × 25 – 1 × 25 (20 lots of 25 subtract 1 lot of 25)

= 500 - 25

= £475


Using Approximations

Example 1)

12 T-shirts are bought at a cost of £7.99 each. What is the total cost?

Working

12 × £7.99

= 12 × £8 – 12 × 1p

= £96 – 12p

= £95.88

Example 2)

A TV sports programme starts at 14 : 35 and last for 2 hours and 55 minutes.

When does it end?

Working

Add 3 hours then jump back 5 mins. 17 : 30


Re-arranging products

Example 1)

2 × 7 × 11 × 5

= 2 × 5 × 7 × 11

= 10 × 77

= 770

Example 2)

25 × 6 × 5 × 4 × 3 × 2

= 25 × 4 × 6 × 3 × 5 × 2

= 100 × 18 × 10 = 18 000

Factorising numbers

Example 1)

437 × 99 + 437

= 437 × (99 + 1)

= 437 × 100

= 43700

Example 2) Extension

34 × 42 + 68 × 29

= 34 × (42 + 2 × 29)

= 34 × (42 + 58)

= 34 × 100

= 3400

For the first time this year P1-3 danced their socks off at their Pre-prep Ceilidh in the school Chapel! Everyone danced and remembered all the steps with their partners and Mr Taylor and other teachers joined in too! Well done everyone and thank you to Mrs Brockbank for leading us!

Welcome to our latest weekly mini concert which we are delighted to share with you! It continues to be a delight to see children's enthusiasm for music making, despite the lack of a live audience, and well done to all those who have recorded a piece for this week's concert; as always, we have performers from right across the school and we hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you to our talented team of music teachers who continue to work so hard with the children week in, week out. If you would like to appear in next weeks concert, please speak to Dr Allsop!

1 Gold and 1 Silver award at this year’s Senior Maths Challenge.

Cargilfield has won an impressive 1 gold and 1 silver award (from 2 entrants) in the recent UK-wide Senior Maths Challenge for 16-18 years old pupils. This competition was taken by two of our 11 years old, Form 7 pupils at the start of November.

Daniel was awarded a gold and qualified for the Senior Kangaroo competition to be held later on in the academic year. Joseph performed very well and was comfortably in the Silver range.

Well done to both of the boys who took part.

Outdoor Play - The children in nursery continue to enjoy their adventures in the nursery garden. This week we have had picnics, built dinosaur dens and towers, played racing car drivers and dug for treasure in the sand.

introTextMaking memories to last a lifetime
leftColBody


Whether taking part in a school camp, the Pentland Round, Outdoor Pursuits, or an extra-curricular club, all pupils at Cargilfield will have taken part in some form of outdoor adventure learning. Whilst the overriding purpose behind these activities is enjoyment, these activities form a vital part of a child’s overall education.

Self-reliance and teamwork – A huge part of being in the outdoors is being able to rely upon yourself and those that you are with. Knowing their own strengths and weaknesses, and those of others around them, will allow the children to bond with their peers in a way which is simply not possible in a secure-indoor environment.

Resilience – Whilst in the outdoors, things aren’t always easy or comfortable. Forcing yourself out of your comfort-zone and into a situation which challenges you is hard, but hugely beneficial. You might get cold, get lost, get tired, or get scared, but overcoming these challenges will allow the children come out of the experience stronger, and with skills that they can apply in other aspects of their lives.

Health – Outdoor activities are hugely beneficial, not only for our physical health, but also for our mental health. Being able to disconnect from phones, laptops and iPads for a weekend helps us to feel rejuvenated and helps us to keep moving in order to develop our cardiovascular fitness and get that much needed Vitamin D.

Skills for life – The skills learnt whilst taking part in outdoor activities are ones that will be used for life; whether it be learning to navigate, to belay someone up a climbing wall, to light a fire, or to put up a tent, these are skills which will be used for the rest of their lives.

Memories – The strongest memories are formed as a result of emotions which is why no one remembers their best day of TV, or the exam questions that they answered at school. The longest-lasting memories will be those of white-water rafting, summiting a mountain, jumping off a cliff, or camping with their friends.

    At a time when we have been forced to spend so much time indoors, outdoor adventure is all the more important, so encourage your children to seize any opportunities for being outdoors, and enjoy the many benefits that they bring.

      F46b4cda 1a21 4fed a1ce a4d0f558b6e6Form 4 had a fierce Friday, welcoming two Vikings to Cargilfield. The pupils were transported back in time through the magic of storytelling, games and lots of fun activities. They explored a real Viking long boat and practiced rowing in time together. They were giving Viking objects such as clothes and cooking utensils. The settlement game was so much fun; our Form 4 Vikings were able to imagine what life on a Viking settlement would be like and just how difficult it would be to become a powerful Viking Jarl. The highlight of the day took place in the sports hall, where all the action took place! Our Vikings had shieldwall and combat practice, where they stood strong, getting ready for battle.Thank you so much to our Viking visitors for a brilliant day!
