After a long journey south involving fallen trees on the rail line and horrendous flooding around Repton, we arrived at the hotel on Thursday evening, a little fatigued but glad to make it safely to Derbyshire. A pre-birthday treat for Sophie at Nando’s perked the girls up, and her chocolate birthday was a lovely way to finish the day off on a high.

Sophie’s birthday dawned bright and sunny, and after a cats chorus of “Happy Birthday” in pyjamas, the girls packed up and we headed to Repton. Clearly, the terrible flooding that had been reported in the news was all too evident, and we were feeling lucky that the event could even take place.

Our first match was against Taunton. We knew we had to start the tournament strongly, and we certainly did, winning a short corner after only 1 minute. Birthday girl Sophie struck the bull sweetly after an accurate injection from Izzy, and we scored our first goal of the tournament. It was a match full of short corners, with Sophie winning another soon after but no score came of it. The play swung back down to our defence and feet in our circle resulted in a defending corner which was sweetly saved by Caitlin. Izzy and Sophie linked well and won another corner but we failed to score. Flora was working hard up front and made some great runs in the D. The girls were working so hard , a goal was definitely on the horizon. Sophie made a great interception and had a left and right option; a lovely pass right to Saphira followed, and Saphira worked her magic, turned , shot at goal then Sophie swept it in. The game played at great pace and we did well to play strongly to the end.

Cargilfield 2 Taunton 0

Our next match was against Cheltenham who had one particularly strong player. Again, we started well and won a short corner. Sophie struck the bull hard and the goal keeper made a terrific save, clearing the ball wide. We quickly got the ball back in to play and Izzy had 2 strong reverse hits at goal, both which were saved. The play switched quickly and Clemmie made a fantastic tackle, staying strong and switching the play over, playing the ball back up front. Sophie’s tackling was good and she turned over play, passed to Flora who neatly swept the ball in to the back of the net. No sooner was the ball back in play, we won the ball again and Sophie passed to Saphira who turned and swept the ball towards goal and in true Saphira style, scored a cracking goal. We weren’t safe yet, and the opposition came back hard; Clemmie cleared a ball on the line, but good positioning from the Cheltenham girl saw a ball slipped to her and she slotted one past Caitlin. The clock was ticking down and we stayed composed and managed to play the ball away, and this was enough to see us win the match.

Cargilfield 2 Cheltenham 1

We knew our match against Foremarke would be a tough one and the girls needed to dig deep in this match to stay afloat. Foremarke made a couple of mistakes early in the match but we didn’t quite manage to capitalise on these. They then drove hard towards goal and Emma lost her footing (and her stick!) and they somehow managed to score, despite our best efforts to keep them out. A number of decisions simply did not go our way and it was both disappointing to see and frustrating for the girls. A certain short corner was missed along with some feet, and the girls did well to stay focused. Saphira was our star player in this match and she worked hard, finding space and winning short corners. We really picked up our game and I think the girls realised (albeit a little too late) that this was a game they could actually win. Izzy hit the outside of the side board with a cracking shot then quickly won us a short corner. Sadly, we ran out of time and despite looking the better team, lost the match.

Cargilfield 0 Foremarke 1

Our 4th pool match was against Langley and we moved across to the sand based pitch for this. It was an important game as their points were very similar to ours. Sophie demonstrated some great individual skills throughout the match, and played well, trying to find space and move the ball. She won numerous short corners but the Langley goal keeper kept them out and turned play around. Caitlin’s goal keeping skills were needed throughout the match and she made an important and big save to keep the game alive. Time was ticking away but we got the ball up high again and Izzy had a great reverse strike at goal but didn’t quite manage to score. We lost a corner in the last few minutes and Emma made a crucial clear which saw the match end as a draw.

Cargilfield 0 Langley 0

Our last pool match was against Lambrook on the same sand Astro. We were up for a win and Sophie broke through early on and had a shot at goal which just missed the goal. We piled on the pressure and Saphira, Laura and Flora all tried hard to get the ball wide when they were up front. We were rewarded for our pressure by a goal from Sophie after some great individual skill. Izzy also had a good run and played a fantastic ball to the post. Further pressure saw us win a short corner and Sophie scored a goal on her reverse, using her 3D skills. Soon after, not to be out beaten, Izzy had a great reverse strike high in the air, but unfortunately we didn’t score. Two short corners followed and after our no 1 went a little wrong, Sophie neatly pulled the ball right, brought it back on her strong side, and struck it hard for her hat trick.

Cargilfield 3 Lambrook 0

We finished second in the pool which meant we qualified for the main Cup quarter final. This match was against Dean Close who won the U12 finals last year. The match was fairly even at the start and Caitlin was forced to make a good save early on, after a bit of a scramble. Another save from Caitlin was needed quickly after, and we began to doubt ourselves and a little panic set in to the team. Dean Close broke through, and made a good pass through us, and scored in the back of the net. We gave away a couple of silly fouls for not being 5m and were punished with another goal. We did settle a bit after this but we lacked the physicality of the opposition and to be fair, Dean Close were the rightful winners of the game.

The final was won by Dean Close so we can take a lot of positives from the finals; the girls played their socks off all day, finished in the top 8 schools in the UK, lost to the eventual winners and everyone took their game to the next level. A great team achievement and both Cuan and myself are super proud of them all.

A massive thank you to all the supporters who travelled south to support us; it was great to have you all as part of the gang, and you all played an important role in our success.

Well done to the girls; feel proud of everything you have achieved and enjoy a good night’s sleep tonight .... I certainly will!!!

Playing Sedbergh is always the highlight of the season for both schools, and this year's double header was as hard fought and competitive as all the others! Playing SRU laws certainly helped us in some respects, but what pleased me most was our ball retention and the way in which we looked after it, went through phase after phase after phase, testing out the opposition defence, but although we threatened on a number of occasions, we just could not break down their outstanding defensive organisation.  We must have had 75% possession, which is an incredible statistic, but we lacked the variation in attack, and were perhaps a bit too one dimensional, running out of ideas which then, eventually, forced the mistake, and handed Sedbergh the ball. We played a bit too much down the middle and the ball never went wide enough where we do have lots of pace, but Sedbergh were up very fast to be fair to them which cut out our options; we kicked a few times in the 2nd half which was a good option, but a bit more variation and nous was required today!  It was two tries to nil at half time and we were right in the game with the 2nd Sedbergh try coming in the last play of the half, and although we began the 2nd half really well, up in their 22m and battering the try line, the score just would not come.  You have to credit some terrific defensive work from Sedbergh, and they defended really maturely, trusting each other in the tackle and not allowing us the freedom we have enjoyed against Scottish opposition. They had to attack from deep and some strong runners eventually found holes in our own defence, as tiredness crept in after a long week of rugby for this group of boys.  Take nothing away from them though, we kept on battling, kept on going back for more and we deserved a bit more than we got. 

As always, it was a pleasure to host our friends from Cumbria, and although we did not win, we certainly played with a huge amount of control, energy and spirit but that was enough on this occasion.  Both sides certainly knew they had been in a fantastic contest and Mr Harrison, from Fettes, enjoyed blowing the whistle on what was an excellent game of prep school rugby.

leftColBody


There has been lots of excitement again in P2! Last week we came into the classroom to find chaos in both rooms with tables overturned and pencil pots strewn across the floor. Some rather large footprints on the floor gave us a clue to the identity of the intruders but, to be sure, we decided to set up a camera overnight in the hope of catching a glimpse of the culprits in action. To our astonishment and delight, a rather scaly head was sighted in one of the classrooms. Last Friday we decided to hatch a cunning plan to attract our intruders back again. We collected some juicy leaves, some bark and some colourful berries and placed them in our classrooms in the hope that our dinosaurs would return and feast on the vegetation we had provided. 

If you would like to see some photographs of the extraordinary happenings in P2 , and catch a glimpse of our friendly intruders returning again to the P2 classrooms please venture, if you dare, onto the Cargilfield website where the happenings have been reported. Were our friendly dinosaurs enticed back once more, and were they caught fully on camera?

introTextA super game with Merchiston

The boys played two short matches of 7-a-side outdoors on the astro against Merchiston in a home fixture. The team played with great heart and sense of fun and over the matches were victorious with the first match won by 4-2 and the second an exciting 2-2 draw. The quality of football improved as the afternoon went on and there were some positive passages of play when the ball was pinged around accurately from defence to attack.

In goal, Leo was brave, made some great saves and distributed the ball well from the back after a shaky start! Finn was very strong in defence and was ably partnered by Finlay, Jack and Austin. In midfield, Edward was skilled and tireless and was instrumental in linking the defence and attack. Mungo was tenacious, enjoyed his time on the wing and Oliver and Luca were busy upfront scoring some pleasing goals after silky moves. Quin was outstanding for the two matches and his skill level and pace of play made him easily the best player on show from both sides. Well done.

Algebra Simplification

Algebra can seem abstract and confusing to pupils when they first meet it.

The fact that you are expecting quite young children to imagine letters representing numbers can be tough enough. Then making it harder by confusing the matter with methods that frankly do not make much sense.

Initially pupils are expected to write expressions

e.g. Consider the number y

Write an expression for:-

“twice the number”  2y
“four more than the number”  y + 4

less than 20”  20 - y

The pupils get the hang of these and hopefully see the logic by relating the to the number 6 for example.

The next challenge involves simplifying expressions.

Gathering Like terms

Consider 2a+3b+4a+6= 6a+9b

Some textbooks talk about “adding 2 apples and 4 apples to get 6 apples then 3 bananas and 6 bananas to get 9 bananas”. And stressing that you can’t add apples to bananas.

The children have just about got used to a letter representing a number when suddenly it becomes an apple, banana, egg or car!

Attempting to simplify 7ab -3- 5- 6- 2+ 5 + ab using apples and bananas makes no sense. (negative 5 bananas subtract 2 bananas ?? 7 apple/bananas ??)

A Better Way:

Using the listing method
Starting off with 2+ 6think of as a pile of sand, x metres above ground level. Adding 2 piles high of this sand with 6 piles high will give a pile 8 high.

Negative amounts of are then thought of as holes in the ground. 

-3is thought of as a hole three lots of metres down.

Looking at the examples below.

1) – is thought of as a pile of sand metres high filling in a hole of giving level ground.

i.e. 0 metres.

2) 2– 3is thought of as a pile of sand 2metres high filling in a hole deep leaving us with a hole of metres deep 

i.e. -a

page2image33563792

This is then used to explain the Listing Method:

A negative will cancel out a positive.  (filling in holes) 

Two positives will combine to make a bigger positive.   (a higher pile)

Two negatives will combine to make a bigger negative.  (a deeper hole)

Consider 1. 

List 3a - 4+ 5a - 2b

 

page3image33655856

= 8a - 6b

Consider 2. 

List -3y - 2z + 4z

 

page3image33677648

y(or -z+y )

This method is especially useful when simplifying expressions with powers of letters. 

Consider 3.

page4image33657104

This method has been used successfully for the last few years. The pupils are more accurate and are more likely to understand the logic of gathering like terms.

It can also be used to understand basic negative number calculations.

What a fabulous afternoon of rugby we had on Friday when we welcomed Sedbergh for their annual visit to Cargilfield. They brought three teams, and we enjoyed a wonderful inclusive afternoon as the 1st, 2nd and 3rd teams took on our old friends from Cumbria. 

The rugby was hugely competitive and fiercely contested on the pitch and afterwards, and much more importantly, we all sat down together for match tea in the dining room. That is what playing sport at this level is all about and it was a fantastic occasion. 

Many thanks to the catering team who fed everyone for lunch and afterwards, to the parents who came to support but especially to all the players who put on such a spectacle on the field!
