After last Thursday’s outstanding team performance in beating a very strong Aysgarth team from Yorkshire, the 1stXV took on Dollar Academy on what was a mild but foggy afternoon at the foot of the Ochil Hills.  Our home fixture with them back in September was a fantastic game of rugby which we won, but it was hugely competitive game of rugby and this Dollar team is right at the top of the schools we play in Scotland, with perhaps only Sedbergh having been stronger this season.  So certainly another tough challenge, but as they have shown throughout the term, this group of boys continue to work hard as a team, set themselves very high standards which they have no intention of allowing to slip as we come in to the final two games of the season with just Merchiston to come next Wednesday.

As we expected, Dollar came flying out of the traps and showed what a quality side they were with some outstanding off loading and they kept hold of the ball really well which tested our defence; however, the hard work we have done in the last few sessions paid off and they were unable to break through thanks to some excellent scrambling defence and then securing turnover ball at the breakdown.  We got on the score sheet first thanks to some excellent work by the forwards once again, and the quick ruck ball allowed Jack to go through the gap and score a super first try of the match.  From the restart though, we were caught napping, slipped off a couple of tackles which was disappointing which allowed Dollar straight back in the game; getting up fast on the opposition and not allowing them the space to run is what we have done so well over the past few weeks.

After that, we then played some of our best rugby of the season, scoring four unanswered tries, all of them really well worked with the ball moving at pace out in to the wide channels – Oliver’s try in the corner was one of the best we have scored this season – and our ability to keep the ball, dominate the breakdown meant we were able to exploit gaps which eventually appeared in the Dollar defence.  Seb and Joshua were quite outstanding today and the Dollar boys found it hard to compete in the tackle area which allowed us to play front foot rugby, and Rory and Max got the three quarters running so well in attack.  There was some outstanding rugby from the whole team, and seeing Jack, the 2ndXV skipper, dive over for a short range try was definitely the moment of the match for me, and seeing the rest of the team’s reaction to his try.  Everyone supportive of each other and working so hard as a team together.

And so we have reached a fitting finale next week with our final game against Merchiston at home, at the end of what has been a wonderful term of rugby for this group of boys.  They have grown and developed over the course of the season, adding so much more to their game as the weeks have gone by: today, we played much wider, we kicked well when Dollar were up quickly in defence and we ran with real power and pace, making good decisions all over the park. It was very good to watch, seeing the boys take responsibility and show real leadership.

It should be a wonderful game of rugby next Wednesday between two good teams.  I cannot wait!

One more challenge.  I think we will be ready.

It was a fairly tough day at the office for the U12Bs today against Mary Erskine. There were some early goals against us, however the girls kept their heads up and Ruby scored a brilliant goal, with the assist coming from Georgia. We brought far more energy to the game in the second half and made a real effort to move the ball wide. Despite some fantastic defence, particularly from Charlotte and Annabella, Mary Erskine managed to break through. We had a few attacking opportunities but lacked passing options up front. Georgia managed to find the backboard late on with a lovely finish. Final score 8-2.

The U12A girls played against Mary Erskine P7 today.  The play was end to end throughout the match and all the girls worked hard.  Matilda opened the scoring today with a great sweep shot at goal after a lovely ball through from Clemmie.  The MES girls quickly replied with 2 goals despite Valentina saving many attempts at goal.  Katinka nearly scored before half time after a good display of individual skill but we just did not manage to get the ball in the net.  

Matilda swept another ball in to the back of the net early in the second half to equalise and it was all to play for at this point.  Poppy worked hard trying to get the ball up but Josephine and Issy were the real stars today; Issy intercepted every possible pass and Josephine did not stop running all match. The MES girls managed to squeeze 2 further goals past us in the latter stages of the match, but Venetia was not for giving up and had a great run up the pitch but it was all a bit too late and the match finished 4-2 to MES.

The MES girls were particularly good at moving the ball and if I was to have on criticism of our team, it would be that we played too many balls straight through the opposition, unsuccessfully, rather than moving the ball wide.  However, still a couple of weeks left to work on this!

The U12A girls played against Mary Erskine P7 today.  The play was end to end throughout the match and all the girls worked hard.  Matilda opened the scoring today with a great sweep shot at goal after a lovely ball through from Clemmie.  The MES girls quickly replied with 2 goals despite Valentina saving many attempts at goal.  Katinka nearly scored before half time after a good display of individual skill but we just did not manage to get the ball in the net.  

Matilda swept another ball in to the back of the net early in the second half to equalise and it was all to play for at this point.  Poppy worked hard trying to get the ball up but Josephine and Issy were the real stars today; Issy intercepted every possible pass and Josephine did not stop running all match. The MES girls managed to squeeze 2 further goals past us in the latter stages of the match, but Venetia was not for giving up and had a great run up the pitch but it was all a bit too late and the match finished 4-2 to MES.

The MES girls were particularly good at moving the ball and if I was to have on criticism of our team, it would be that we played too many balls straight through the opposition, unsuccessfully, rather than moving the ball wide.  However, still a couple of weeks left to work on this!

The Under Nine girls were delighted to play Loretto after the cancellation of a match earlier in the season. We acquitted ourselves well, and were the stronger team from the outset. I was fortunate to have Cuan referee which let me see the individual progress the girls have made over this term. Savannah’s skills have developed very well and she was moving and passing confidently around the pitch. She scored two of our goals. Bonnie’s skills have also come on but she does need to remember to use the right side of her stick and to make sure her head does not drop when things do not go her way. Bella is developing into a fine young player; her control of the ball and her passes are strong but she does need to continue to work on her aim if shooting. She also scored two goals. Nadia played very well in midfield, fearlessly tackling and delivering some lovely passes. Super progress! Aglaya and Beatrice were very strong in defence, happy to come out to meet an attacker and strong under pressure. And finally, Isla who fortunately played the whole game rather than subbing. She is showing some flair and had several shots on goal, one of which went in. The last two goals were especially sweet as they involved some great passing beforehand. We lacked energy in the second half and I would have liked more focus and effort, however we won the game comfortably 5-0. Well done, girls.

Dollar travelled across to us for our second match against them this season.  With the prospect of a rare 10-a-side match awaiting, the boys eagerly took to the pitch and within seconds of kick-off, they had won the ball and touched down for the first try of the match.  The next two tries followed in quick succession as the boys worked the ball wide and used Kit and Thabo’s pace to good effect.  The Cargilfield boys kept a strong defensive line and this enabled them to capitalise on any mistakes and counter attack.  The boys used their strength to gain good ground before offloading in the tackle and passing into space.  They controlled the game and at half time the score was 6-1.  The conceded try was the result of a rare lapse in concentration.

Dollar were encouraged by their try and came to the second half with a better game and more determination.  Cargilfield found themselves in defence for almost ten uninterrupted minutes but eventually conceded a try despite their valiant efforts in defence.  They then made the most of the restart to end the game on a high.

The final score was a 8-2 win.  Well done to all of the boys for an excellent effort in defence.

W 9-3

In muddy, slippy conditions, we enjoyed a feisty game of rugby against our pals from Dollar. The Dollar boys started strongly and pressed our try line hard in the first few minutes. The pressure told after some good defence and they deserved to score the first try. After some good exchanges and great passing from both teams, especially considering the mud, a couple more tries were scored and the match was even, 2-2 at half time. 

In the second half, more direct running from the Cargilfield boys tested the Dollar defence, which let in a couple of early tries. Sometimes it can be hard to turn the momentum in a match and the final score flatters Cargilfield as the Dollar boys never gave up the fight and played some good rugby. This was fittingly shown by them scoring the final try of the match.

Stripes: Lost 6-5

Blues: Drew 8-8

On a rather soggy afternoon, Cargilfield returned to Fettes to play their U9s again, two weeks after a good equal contest. I thought that both teams played well in attack and passed well. In a tough rugby match, speed generally wins the day and we really highlighted this in attack. However, in defence we need to learn how to defend as a team; communicating with each other, holding the line and closing off space together rather than individually chasing the ball. I would like the boys to work on this in training ready for the last match of the season next week.

Well done, boys!

On a gloomy day our U9A Squad set off for a triangular fixture with Compass and Merchiston, after a couple of loops of the bright lights Haddington had to offer, Mr Stephen eventually found the rugby club.

We were first up against Compass and our free flowing, offloading game was put to the test by the elements, we went into the break level but really had to work for our scores compared to the direct approach Compass came at us with. Fresh faces and the message to be more direct came to fruition with Charles making a dynamic run in midfield to feed Calum to score the first try of the second half. Quick scores from Tristan, Monty and Theo put the game to bed and set the tone for a brilliant day of rugby despite the weather.

Next up was Merchiston and again we started sluggishly, struggling to deal with a physical Merchiston team. We again really had to work hard for our scores, going multi-phase in bleak conditions was testament to how much the boys handling skills have come on over the year. The introduction of Wilfred and the twins provided the impetus we needed after the break. The mischievous pair were hunting down free ball and brushing off substantially bigger boys to swing the momentum back in our way. Three quick tries sealed a victory with particular credit going to Monty for his link play, defence and attacking flair, he was terrific all day and rightly earned the player of the match.

A real squad victory today for the boys, with the curtain close to coming down on their maiden season at the school they can all be very proud showing resilience in poor weather against some much larger boys!

introTextThe importance of Practical Science
image/cms/resources/cargilfield-preparatory-school-7o7a9564-photograph-by-angus-bremnerc-1.jpg
imageAltCargilfield
leftColBody

Almost without fail, this is a question asked at the beginning of each science lesson and, from the perspective of the students, for good reason - practical science means less writing and more fun.

There is nothing quite so pleasing as setting students off on a practical activity, and hearing shortly afterwards, “That’s sick, Sir!”. For me, this is what science is all about – discovering something new, investigating why something happens, or puzzling over why an experiment hasn’t done what was expected. What better way to inspire children than to give them the opportunity to develop their own knowledge through guided experimentation?

However, from a teaching perspective, practical science goes beyond simply motivating the students.

The Gatsby Foundation highlight five key purposes of practical science:

  •    To teach the principals of scientific inquiry
  •    To improve understanding of theory through practical experience
  •    To teach specific practical skills, such as measurement and observation, that may be useful in future study or employment
  •        To motivate and engage students
  •        To develop higher levels skills and attributes such as communication, teamwork and perseverance

As teachers, it is therefore important that, whilst we are aware of the motivational effect of practical activities, a clear educational purpose is established for all lab-work. This is particularly important given the increased emphasis on ‘working scientifically’ in Common Entrance exams, but also later at GCSE and A level.

Moving forward, it is my aim to continue to enhance our practical science provision at Cargilfield, developing a curriculum which draws upon the inquisitive nature of children to build them into the doctors and scientists of the future.

So, at a time when, in many schools, time doing practical science is being reduced due to curriculum, exam, and financial pressures, lab-work at Cargilfield continues to be an important element of the pupils’ scientific education.

Almost without fail, this is a question asked at the beginning of each science lesson and, from the perspective of the students, for good reason - practical science means less writing and more fun.

There is nothing quite so pleasing as setting students off on a practical activity, and hearing shortly afterwards, “That’s sick, Sir!”. For me, this is what science is all about – discovering something new, investigating why something happens, or puzzling over why an experiment hasn’t done what was expected. What better way to inspire children than to give them the opportunity to develop their own knowledge through guided experimentation?

However, from a teaching perspective, practical science goes beyond simply motivating the students.

The Gatsby Foundation highlight five key purposes of practical science:

  •    To teach the principals of scientific inquiry
  •    To improve understanding of theory through practical experience
  •    To teach specific practical skills, such as measurement and observation, that may be useful in future study or employment
  •        To motivate and engage students
  •        To develop higher levels skills and attributes such as communication, teamwork and perseverance

As teachers, it is therefore important that, whilst we are aware of the motivational effect of practical activities, a clear educational purpose is established for all lab-work. This is particularly important given the increased emphasis on ‘working scientifically’ in Common Entrance exams, but also later at GCSE and A level.

Moving forward, it is my aim to continue to enhance our practical science provision at Cargilfield, developing a curriculum which draws upon the inquisitive nature of children to build them into the doctors and scientists of the future.

So, at a time when, in many schools, time doing practical science is being reduced due to curriculum, exam, and financial pressures, lab-work at Cargilfield continues to be an important element of the pupils’ scientific education.

Cargilfield had two teams competing at the Lothian Junior Chess P5 and Under championships at Broughton High on Sunday. Our A team, consisting of Joseph, Daniel, Leopold and Alexander came joint 7th but they competed really well lying second after the 4th and 5th rounds. 

In the B Team were Harry, Maximilian, Cecilia and Olivia and they came 20th out of 23 teams in what was, like Alexander, their first appearance at a chess tournament.  In the build up to the tournament, Mr Andrew Green, our Chess coach said that getting half or one point after the 6 rounds would be a great achievement; however, they won 5 games and drew 4 giving them 7 points altogether! 

They’re all looking forward to the next tournament Well done to everyone!

We are delighted that Cargilfield appears in The Cricketer Magazine’s 2020 Schools’ Guide listing the top 100 Senior Schools and top 50 Prep Schools in the UK.

We are the only Prep School in Scotland to be listed and it is fantastic that our strong cricket culture and commitment to cricket 12 months a year as well as a growing girls’ programme has been recognised.

Weekly winter nets started at the end of August and we look forward to the new season starting in April 2020!


The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes said: 

“The Schools Guide is, as ever, a fantastic publication that celebrates schools cricket and gives deserved praise to all those teachers and coaches who put in the hard work to develop our future club, county and international cricketers. Having watched many schools matches this summer I am pleased to report that the standard of cricket programmes and the level of passion for the game is as high as ever.

“Schools cricket has certainly benefitted from this incredible year for the sport.

“Congratulations to all of the schools included and I look forward to hearing about all of your future successes.”

The guide will be on sale from Friday 22nd November alongside the December issue of the magazine. A digital version of the guide will also be available on thecricketer.com from Friday 13th December.

introTextAn outstanding team performance
image/cms/resources/img1981.jpeg

1stXV  28 Aysgarth  0

It has ben a long two weeks, with 6 matches in 14 days which with one or two boys carrying knocks, has meant this group of boys have had to dig deep and show a huge amount of mental and physical fortitude.  They have proved themselves to be a real team, leaders standing up to be counted, and taking games by the scruff of the neck and showing that steely inner determination which drags the rest of the team along with them.  Today was no different, as we welcomed Aysgarth to Cargilfield for their annual visit, and having lost to them down on tour, the boys were ready to battle hard and look to take a rare scalp!

Having had 75% of the ball last week against Sedbergh, and yet unable to break through their outstanding defence, we made a couple of tactical changes this afternoon: Glen moved in to 13, Quin on to the wing and with the skipper back to full fitness, we were keep to get the ball faster in to the outside channels more often, rather than keeping it tight.  We do keep possession so well, going through phase after phase, but turning that possession in to points was going to be key today, and with ten of the boys having played and won with the Saltires the day before, everyone was keen to get another win over an English opponent, which is always satisfying for the Scots, at whatever level!

I could not have been prouder this afternoon.  When some could have complained of tiredness, instead, the group of boys drank deep from the well once more, and to ‘nil’ a side like Aysgarth takes some doing and just showed the resoluteness of our defence and that determination to make sure that the quality of our rugby brought the result it deserved.  Right from the start, we dominated possession once again, but today the biggest difference was the organisation of our defence; the communication was excellent, we did not over commit to rucks that we lost, and our first up press and tackling was outstanding.  In particular, we closed down their very fast Chinese boy who scored tries against us down south, but today after one huge hit by Luca, he had no space to run and we forced him in to mistakes.  And so it went on.  Aysgarth had some strong and effective ball carriers in the backs, but we closed them down so quickly and our defensive organisation was quite superb, so hats off to the whole team for what was an incredible shift.

In attack, Glen saw much more of the ball today which got us over the gain line out in the wider channels which made us a much more potent attacking force; it is something we shall continue to work on in the final two games of term, but Max kicked intelligently when Aysgarth were up fast and his all round game was back to its very best this afternoon – leading from the front both with and without the ball.  Rory scored a superb try from the base of the ruck, again varying his play much more than last week when we all a bit predicatable, and Jack continued to show real cussedness, skill and hardness, putting his body on the line again and again and again – great to see after such an intense workload these past two weeks.  Oli came back in to the side today, played really well at full back, and he fully deserved his MoM award from the Aysgarth coach; he covered their kicks and ran the ball back really effectively, so well done!  As ever, it was another herculean effort from the forwards: we dominated the breakdown, listened to the referee and out rucked our opponents throughout the game: quick ball is the key and I was delighted with our ball carrying and the real aggression that we run with game after game.  Top notch effort all round.

We go again……two more games remaining, and two big ones to finish!  Away up at Dollar next week, then a mouth watering finale, at home, against our old friends Merchiston.  This group of players have worked terrifically hard all season and shown themselves to be one of the very best Cargilfield XVs over the past 16 years; teamship, working hard for your mates and never once taking a backward step are qualities which will serve us well as we head in to the final stages of the season.

Keep going.  Much to look forward to still!

1stXV  28 Aysgarth  0

It has ben a long two weeks, with 6 matches in 14 days which with one or two boys carrying knocks, has meant this group of boys have had to dig deep and show a huge amount of mental and physical fortitude.  They have proved themselves to be a real team, leaders standing up to be counted, and taking games by the scruff of the neck and showing that steely inner determination which drags the rest of the team along with them.  Today was no different, as we welcomed Aysgarth to Cargilfield for their annual visit, and having lost to them down on tour, the boys were ready to battle hard and look to take a rare scalp!

Having had 75% of the ball last week against Sedbergh, and yet unable to break through their outstanding defence, we made a couple of tactical changes this afternoon: Glen moved in to 13, Quin on to the wing and with the skipper back to full fitness, we were keep to get the ball faster in to the outside channels more often, rather than keeping it tight.  We do keep possession so well, going through phase after phase, but turning that possession in to points was going to be key today, and with ten of the boys having played and won with the Saltires the day before, everyone was keen to get another win over an English opponent, which is always satisfying for the Scots, at whatever level!

I could not have been prouder this afternoon.  When some could have complained of tiredness, instead, the group of boys drank deep from the well once more, and to ‘nil’ a side like Aysgarth takes some doing and just showed the resoluteness of our defence and that determination to make sure that the quality of our rugby brought the result it deserved.  Right from the start, we dominated possession once again, but today the biggest difference was the organisation of our defence; the communication was excellent, we did not over commit to rucks that we lost, and our first up press and tackling was outstanding.  In particular, we closed down their very fast Chinese boy who scored tries against us down south, but today after one huge hit by Luca, he had no space to run and we forced him in to mistakes.  And so it went on.  Aysgarth had some strong and effective ball carriers in the backs, but we closed them down so quickly and our defensive organisation was quite superb, so hats off to the whole team for what was an incredible shift.

Graham from Chartwells, our school caterers, gave Form 4 a talk about his incredible trip to Norway. He told us all about the huge fish, including one that weighed 23kg, that they caught and filleted. We are having an incredible Viking feast today, including honey & nettle cake, lamb stew and stick bread! Delicious!

The new inter school prep schools’ rugby tournament took place this afternoon, replacing what was formerly the Dandylions v WOSPS fixture. 

The Saltires (Cargilfield and Fettes_College), the Caledonians (Ardvreck SchoolCraigclowan Prep School and St Leonards School) and the Thistles (Belhaven Hill SchoolLoretto School and St Mary’s) all came together to play a triangular set of matches hosted by Loretto. 

All three of the fixtures were fiercely contested but it was the Saltires who emerged victorious and Max, the Captain, received the cup and a new tradition has begun! 

Well done to all those who took part including the ten Cargilfield boys!

After a frustrating day out at St Leonards last week our U9A’s were raring to go against a St Mary’s team who we have had fierce contests with over the course of the season.

Today was no different, our boys got off to a quick start through tries from Jonah, Wilfred and Monty, gradually though St Mary’s direct and physical approach began to break down our side. In a bruising contest tries were exchanged and we went into the break level at four tries each.

St Mary’s carried on the momentum they had built up from the first half and took the lead for the first time. Cargilfield came back again and again with stout defence from Theo, Charles and Dexter alongside penetrating and abrasive running from Tristan. This led to a near stalemate at 6 tries apiece when after multiple phases from St Mary’s they broke free. With their player on the verge of touching the ball down, out of nowhere Harry flew in to prevent the try, the impact dislodged the ball and fell into the waiting hands of Calum who ran the length of the pitch to score the decisive score. 

That match winning effort saw Harry named as Player of the Match, however, it was a fantastic advert for U9 rugby with both sides fiercely committed and playing a free-flowing brand of rugby.

St Mary’s is always a good game and today was no different when the 2nd team faced them down in Melrose. A short warm-up left us a little sluggish to start with. We tried to force play down the middle and met St Mary’s flat sticks. We were 2-0 down at half time after leaving players unmarked in the circle. However, our play picked up massively in the second half, with some lovely sequences of passes. Clara finished two of these off at close range, one just a minute before the final whistle, providing a tense end to the game but the game finished 2-2.

St Mary’s is always a good game and today was no different when the 2nd team faced them down in Melrose. A short warm-up left us a little sluggish to start with. We tried to force play down the middle and met St Mary’s flat sticks. We were 2-0 down at half time after leaving players unmarked in the circle. However, our play picked up massively in the second half, with some lovely sequences of passes. Clara finished two of these off at close range, one just a minute before the final whistle, providing a tense end to the game but the game finished 2-2.

We started strongly, Emma moving the ball up the field and Rose perfectly positioned to take a shot. Unfortunately, it just went wide.  However, just a couple of minutes later Charlotte was in the right place to make the most of a fantastic run the length of the pitch by Josephine. The first goal of the match went to us.

St Mary’s stepped up their efforts at defence with some superb tackling around their D which stopped us in our tracks.  However, Rose and Charlotte managed to get through and scored again. In the second half we continued to dominate. Bethany was strong in defence and Cecily was also active around the goal. Iona deflected the ball 3 times in succession but finally conceded a goal.

Win 5-2

The Under Nine girls were happy to host their friends from Fettes in a friendly mixed tournament. The girls organised themselves into orange, light blue, dark blue and non-bib teams. They worked out their playing positions quickly and we were off. Each team played three matches. By and large the matches were closely contested with lots of nice passing and ball skills on show from the girls. The final winners were the orange and non-bib teams who both finished on four points. We ended the afternoon with match tea together.

It was a frosty afternoon for the girls. They started their first game against the U11 girls very well but lack of movement around the Fettes goal meant very little chances to score as the girls tended to stay back. Esme had to take on the role of goal keeper, which she was not familiar with. She gave it a good go and tried her best unfortunately the opposition had a strong attack. Natasha managed to score twice in this first game. 

In the second game against the U10, the girls learned from their mistakes and supported the attack and defence better. Julia managed to score a good goal in the first half of the game. The girls need to remember to look to who they are sending the ball as many were lost going straight to the opposition. They started to be better at using the space and positioning themselves to be ready to receive the ball by the second half of the last game. Something to work on. Overall, the girls had a good team spirit, cheering on each other and it was an enjoyable game to watch. 

Well done girls.

Player of the match: Natasha

W 13-0

The Cargilfield U11 boys played with high tempo and intensity throughout this good-natured match against Loretto. We played with confidence, looking to pass the ball into space and to keep varying the point of attack. We are learning to keep a better shape and our understanding of where the weaker points are to attack is developing well. In defence we showed a good balance of aggression and technique. Well played boys.

Won 7 tries to 5

After two days of training on frozen pitches with no contact, the boys were eager to get back into tackling with a match against Loretto. Under very muddy conditions, which even made me lose balance on occasion, I was very pleased with how the boys played as a team and they were great at spreading the ball wide and getting it down the line. They were dominant in attack and scored quite a few tries with ease. I was also pleased with the amount of strong tackles that were put in. Unfortunately, as we mainly train under U11 rules, the boys found it hard not to form rucks once a tackle had been completed, this created a little confusion, which the opposition took advantage of in the second half to score a few easy tries. Overall, a very good performance.

Well done, boys!

We played two matches against the Fettes U10As and U11Bs.  The first game against the U10A team was a low scoring affair thanks to both defenses being quite resilient.  We had much of the possession and had lots of chances but Fettes were very good at blocking the ball.  We eventually broke the deadlock when Jessica’s shot fortuitously clipped off a defender’s stick and went into the corner but on the balance of play, we deserved it. Isobel worked hard up front and almost scored but needs to work on getting her feet in the correct position.  Athena proved that she could be a terrific defender in the future after her second half performance at the back.  Her distribution was good and she positioned herself well making her player of the match in this game. 

In the second game, Tunrayo was everywhere and played a terrific role in midfield. She led the team by example by blocking shots and looking to pass the ball wide.  Rowan also worked hard at putting in some blocks when Fettes threatened to advance up the pitch.  At half time it was 0-0 and we stressed the need to get the ball wide to Amalia.  In the second half, the girls were amazing and responded well.  Right from the start, Tunrayo played a terrific ball to Amalia who found lots of space and drove at the opposition goal.  Her shot went just wide but she got more chances and Athena finished off an excellent move through Amalia on the right to get the first goal.  We scored again quickly thanks to Amalia and even though Fettes managed to get one back after Bea made a great block, Amalia was the provider for our 3rd with another strong run down the right wing.   Dulcie played on the left and did everything well by turning to stay strong on the ball and looked to pass back to her supporting midfield players.  Once again, Jessica’s work rate was commendable and she proved to be a very important player in this team.  Bea didn’t have much to do thanks to our outfield players working hard and got very cold but did well when called upon.   Player of the match was Amalia for setting up all 3 goals.

Well played, girls; these were two tough and competitive fixtures but you raised your game when needed and reaped the reward with two terrific wins!  What a team!

Very well done to Sophie, Izzy, Laura, Caitlin, Emma, Flora and Saphira who all represented the Saltires today in the IAPS representative match against the Caledonians and the Thistles.  They won both matches (7-0 v Caledonians and 3-1 v Thistles) .

The boys played Stewart’s Melville in a 10-a-side fixture. S.M.C. fielded a strong 2nd Under 12 team for the first half and were rather too strong with the boys trying hard but going down 7-2 in tries. At half-time the boys were still supportive of each other and enjoying the experience. The second half saw S.M.C. field their third team and this was much more of a match with our boys shading it on tries. Torin was our main try scorer with half a dozen and Austin, as Captain, was a driving force going forward and a brave tackler. Kyan was fast and elusive and was always supported closely by Joshua and Adam. Duncan, Angus and Robin were willing to tackle and kept going even when they faced opposition a little too strong for them. Monty used the ball well at the set piece and Max again had a solid game with some surging runs.

Well done for a chilly but fun match.

For the last three weeks, Roman Technology STEM club have been learning about how the Romans made and used mosaics. We learnt that they called the technique ‘opus tesellatum’ and the individual squares are ‘tesserae’. When the children were tasked with creating their own mosaic, they firstly drew their designs before glueing down the individual tiles and finally using grouting to fill in the spaces between.

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.

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
image/cms/resources/img2251-2.jpeg
imageAltCargilfield
leftColBody

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!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mowden to Cargilfield today. We decided to play full pitch for 20 minutes each way, with just 7-a-side. This clearly involves a lot of leg work however the girls stepped up to the challenge and utilised the additional space brilliantly. Cargifield looked strong from the start, winning a few short corners on the trot, one of which was converted. The girls passed beautifully and only chose to dribble when the space was available. Despite us changing positions, the girls maintained their structure and communicated well. Mowden really stepped up in the second half and put pressure on our defence however this was well managed by Cargilfield. Our final goal of the game was by far the best of the season, with a build up of at least 6 passes, which started all the way back in our defensive 25 and ended with a great strike from Poppy. This brought the score to 8-0 to finish. Alannah was awarded Player of the Match by Mowden for her outstanding play across the field.

This morning P2 took advantage of the beautiful winter sunshine and, armed with metre sticks, we headed out onto the games’ field to investigate the lengths of some of the world’s longest and shortest dinosaurs. Accuracy was extremely important if we were to compare each dinosaur to another and so, in our groups, we meticulously measured every metre using a system of cones. We were amazed at how some of the shortest dinosaurs like the 2m velociraptor could even have lived next to some of the longest like the 35m argentinosaurus.

Mrs Quayle and Mrs Spencer couldn’t even imagine a creature that was that long so we thought we’d see how the P2’s measured up!  Arms outstretched and standing parallel to the length of the argentinosaurus, we realised that we were just a little bit longer - with the help of our wonderful groundsman, Kenny!

Take a look at our measuring skills and I think it’s safe to say we’re glad these gigantic creatures don’t roam the Earth today!

The under 12 A squad took to the pitch on a chilly afternoon looking forward to an exciting tussle with George Watson’s School. Watson’s won the toss and chose to receive and then the game started at an incredible speed. Both teams competed well but Watson’s had the advantage in the early minutes and as a result scored the first two tries. Cargilfiled fought back due to some great work from forwards, Joshua, Hugo and Albie making the half time score 3 tries to 1 in Watson’s favour. In the second half the game became even more intense with no quarter given. Both teams passed the ball with great skill and tackled with even greater determination. Cargilfield matched the aggression of Watson’s due to some superb work by the forwards and some great support from Ollie, Luca and Murray in midfield and slowly crept back in to the game. Rory scored a crucial individual try to bring the scores level at 5-5 and then with just two minutes to go Glen broke through the defence and to the dismay of the Watson’s team surged over the line to claim the winning try. Well done to both teams on what was a very exciting, hard fought game.

The U12’s waited patiently today to get on the pitch for a 3pm start.  The play was very even all through the game and it was great to see the girls work so hard.  Mary Erskine were very unlucky not to score and our defence of Valentina, Cicely and Issy B were tested throughout the match; their skill and communication was great to see and they really were the hero’s today.  Poppy played well up front, hitting some great hard balls towards the MES keeper, and she was rewarded with a goal in the first half.  The goal settled us a bit and gave us a bit more confidence on the ball.  Our passing was good today and we looked to move the ball up the pitch well, playing it wide and with good power.  Josephine stood out in midfield, and made tackle after tackle, and it was also great to see her link so well with Matilda and Poppy up front.  Georgia snuck a goal in the second half to see us pull away to 2-0, and Matilda showed good stick skills before bringing the ball in and scoring our 3rd.  

Final Score: Cargilfield 3 Mary Erskine 0

The U12’s waited patiently today to get on the pitch for a 3pm start.  The play was very even all through the game and it was great to see the girls work so hard.  Mary Erskine were very unlucky not to score and our defence of Valentina, Cicely and Issy B were tested throughout the match; their skill and communication was great to see and they really were the hero’s today.  Poppy played well up front, hitting some great hard balls towards the MES keeper, and she was rewarded with a goal in the first half.  The goal settled us a bit and gave us a bit more confidence on the ball.  Our passing was good today and we looked to move the ball up the pitch well, playing it wide and with good power.  Josephine stood out in midfield, and made tackle after tackle, and it was also great to see her link so well with Matilda and Poppy up front.  Georgia snuck a goal in the second half to see us pull away to 2-0, and Matilda showed good stick skills before bringing the ball in and scoring our 3rd.  

Final Score: Cargilfield 3 Mary Erskine 0

The U11B girls had a fun match today against the Kilgraston girls.  Despite the cold, the girls did well and should be pleased with their performance.  We looked the stronger team from the start however the Kilgraston girls stuck in and they improved as the game went on.  We had some great work in front of goal from Annika and Esme, and both girls were rewarded with goals today.  Isabella kept the width and fired some great balls in.  The Kilgraston goal keeper made some great saves and really kept her team in the game.  Poor Bea was not really troubled at all during the match, but kept a big smile on her face and kept the team going.  

All in all, a good team effort, very much dominated by our attack.

Lost 6-3

What a cracking game of rugby! Both teams should be proud of a physical, fast-paced game today. The rucking and tackling were ferocious throughout an even contest. The Watsons boys scored some lovely tries using the spaces out wide and off-loading from the tackle area. In reply, the Cargilfield boys also scored some great tries coming from some excellent support play and clever angles of run. Perhaps a little weary from tour, I fully commend the boys for putting in another super performance.

Lost 7 tries to 6

On a rather cold Wednesday afternoon, Cargilfield were excited to play Fettes in a full contact match. I was pleased with the way that Cargilfield attacked as a team, supported each other, offloaded the ball and generally ran forward rather than sideways. However, there is still a way to go in defence, mainly tackling. We just need to practice our technique a little more in training and make sure we are leading with the shoulder rather than trying to hug the player.

Keep it up, boys!

After an impressive start to the half term our U9 squad headed up to the St Leonards tournament in great form and looking to repeat the success of the previous week. This week’s tournament was a round robin and allowed us to play everyone in games which came thick and fast.

It was therefore imperative to start quickly and the boys quickly started where they left off the previous week with a comprehensive six try win over Clifton Hall, playing a free flowing attacking brand of rugby. 

Next up was an unknown quantity in Lathallan School, going a score down quickly in the game. We got back into the game off the back of some stunning defence from Monty and Wilfred, leading to two break away tries from Tristan and Theo. Sadly we couldn’t hold on at the death and Lathallan scored to tie the game, which would prove a crucial score by the end of the tournament.

Strong performances against Loretto and St Leonards put us in a good position for remaining games against High School of Dundee and Fettes. Despite some fabulous rugby and fearless defence, we were beaten by both by a score, which opened the door for Lathallan to take home the trophy.

A lot of positives and improvement over the course of the tournament. With Theo being declared Player of the Day for his attacking threat and brilliant line speed in defence.

We played two matches against the one Loretto team; although we managed it so that we played each first half first so that one of our teams was not standing on the sidelines for too long.  It turned out we were playing 7 a side so everyone ended up playing in all the four 15-minute periods which kept them moving!  There was lots of good hockey on show and all the girls have shown significant improvement since the last time we played this side at Cargilfield earlier in the term.  

Jacqueline scored in the first attack of the afternoon with a well struck shot.  It was a very close game before an impressive hat trick from Natasha who played up front in the second half and a final goal from Dulcie gave us a 5-2 victory.  Tunrayo was definitely doing a lot of the defensive work but Julia and Lyla played important roles in the wider areas which allowed us to pull the Loretto defence out of place.

In the second game, Jessica covered most of the ground with another impressive display but Athena opened the scoring after a hard shot at the goal – nothing more was expected!  Emilia defended well and Rowan played out wide and came into the midfield to make some good tackles.  Tessa was a terrier in midfield in the second half after an impressive defensive display in the first.  We won the game 3-1 thanks to a good all-round team performance.

Well played, girls!

It was a cold but dry day for our final game before heading down to the National finals. We had a few things we needed to work on and it was a good time to get the girls working really well together. We started off very strong and attacked quickly, scoring 2 very good goals. We still struggle to pass the ball around and tend to always go forward; in some cases we need to realise passing back is the best option. We continued to attack and scored one of our best goals with Lucy driving the ball down base line and setting up VEnetia to finish off a great goal. Well done to the girls who have been working really hard this season and I hope we can continue our form down south.

Well done on a good win.

The U11 Rugby Tour played 3 very competitive and entertaining games of rugby. Against Carlisle we faced a physical and aggressive team used to ripping the ball and tackling high to hold up the player to form a maul. Considering we were not used to either tactic, we took a while to adjust and get used to the new rules. Also, playing with an extra man seemed to cramp the pitch a little and we had to straighten our running lines to confront the Carlisle players head on. We did this with great courage and credit to the boys for adjusting so quickly. 

Against a skilful and well drilled Aysgarth team, we played some impressive rugby. Our defence was outstanding with tackle after tackle thwarting an ambitious team spreading the ball wide and running aggressively. We found it hard to make that change-over from defence into attack, making our attacking lines a little sluggish and lacking in penetrative line speed. Nevertheless, we played with tremendous spirit and never backed away from a very good Aysgarth team. 

Next up was Sedbergh and it was great for the team to end with a strong performance. We dominated the game form the outset, competing ferociously in the rucks to keep possession of the ball and running hard to score some good tries. 

In all three games, I have been impressed with the courage, commitment and skills of this set of players. They listen well, respond quickly and have generally been an extremely rewarding group of players to coach. Away from the rugby, the behaviour and engagement of all the boys has been exemplary. It is great to see the values of respect, teamwork and accountability being absorbed and displayed by this next generation of rugby players.

Form 7 enjoyed a lovely day being hosted by Fettes College for their Classics Day. Our children were joined by plenty of other school and mixed together into different groups to integrate as much as possible. It was a full day of events including a Treasure Hunt, Greek Theatre, Legionary Training, Myth Storytelling and mosaics and it finished with a vocabulary competition between the schools. It was a really good opportunity to take a break from the rigours of Latin grammar and translation and immerse the children in the history, culture and mythology behind the language.

The treasure hunt took place all over the Fettes campus and used Classical clues to bring the children closer to the hidden treasure (chocolate!). The Greek theatre activity gave the children an insight into the Greek Chorus, who were a major part of any ancient performance. This included following and copying a leader’s actions and wearing masks! The retelling of a myth was performed by a professional storyteller and was an absolutely mesmerising performance of Theseus and the Minotaur, which the pupils thoroughly enjoyed. They also learnt how the Romans created mosaic floors and each group was tasked with making their own section of a larger mosaic. Once each section had been completed, it was slotted together to create one big mosaic; a huge octopus!

The two highlights of the trip were the Roman Feast that we had a lunch and the Roman Legionary training activity. The children were met by Optio Quintus Valerius Maximus serving in the Sixth Victrix Legion, who put them through their paces. This included marching drills and battle formations. They even learnt how to ‘Form Testudo!’ and a few commands in Latin.

It was a fantastic day and really enjoyable!

We were delighted to welcome Mrs Helen Harrison, Head at Fettes College, to preach on Chapel. She enjoyed coming back to Cargilfield having been a parent here a number of years ago!

She spoke to us about being brave and trying new things. Even when something seems very difficult, having a go and take a deep breath and believe in yourself. Commit to something, grab the opportunities in front of you and go for it!

Big or small, there is always something only you can do.

Thank you for coming to visit us.

Planning in the Moment

Young children live in the here and now. If adults are to make a real difference to their learning they need to seize the moments when children first show curiosity, and support their next steps immediately. When children are allowed to select where, with what, and how to play, they are truly invested in their play, they become deeply involved and make dramatic progress.

Young children are experiencing and learning in the here and now, not storing up their questions until tomorrow or next week. It is in that moment of curiosity, puzzlement, effort or interest – the ‘teachable moment’ – that the skilful adult makes a difference. By using this cycle on a moment-by-moment basis, the adult will be always alert to individual children (observation), always thinking about what it tells us about the child’s thinking (assessment), and always ready to respond by using appropriate strategies at the right moment to support children’s well-being and learning (planning for the next moment). From National Standards document Learning, Playing and Interacting 

Planning in the moment can be broken down into three stages:

  • The Child’s Spark – This is when the child first shows an interest in something. There should be an air of fascination around the object and concentration in what they are now doing.
  • The Teachable Moment – The teacher will notice this and approach the child. This is the opportunity to extend their interest, by asking open-ended questions and considering ways to apply this interest to other options within the environment.
  • The Documentation – At a later date, you can document the observation. Include the spark, the teachable moment and what you did next. This will help you to map out each child’s interests, and plan an environment that works for them.
rightColBody

In Nursery we are beginning to embrace the concept of planning "in the moment" which emphasises the critical role of the adult in promoting child-led learning, giving early years practitioners the confidence and insight to work and plan in the moment, and enabling our children to live, learn, play and develop in the here and now.

We aim to ensure that practitioners can integrate spontaneous planning and rich adult–child interactions into our everyday practice and early years curriculum, responding to the unique needs of each child. We want each child to feel that we value them and their ideas and suggestions; responding to and extending their individual learning. Making detailed and sensitive observation to really see what they are doing, make sense of their actions and to recognise individual achievements which in turn will further their learning and development.

As part of their History topic of World War Two, the Form 5s listened to a talk from ex- Seargent Major Peter Scally. They were given the opportunity to explore a variety of artefacts and were even subjected to a real air raid siren. They found out about the different types of gas masks, rationing, soldier equipment and the creative gadgets used during this time. With our Remembrance Service tomorrow, it was a thought-provoking and engaging insight into World War Two life.

On Friday morning, Cargilfield stood for two minutes in solemn Remembrance to remember those 190 old boys and masters who died during World Wars 1 and 2 and whose names appear on our War Memorial in Chapel. 

Our annual Service of Remembrance is always a very special moment in the school year, and this year we were delighted to welcome the Rev Neil Gardner, Minister at Canongate Kirk, to preach. The Choir sang beautifully, those reading did so superbly, Sebastian and Joshua played Flowers of the Forest as the wreath was laid after the congregation had heard one fifth of the Roll of Honour read out, and then Chay played the Last Post and the Reveille.

A fitting and very moving tribute indeed.

Form 4 are learning about capacity in Maths. They used the science lab to make potions using their measuring and volume and knowledge. Some scary creations were made! Mrs Marsh tested one of our potions...it made a teacher into an angry witch but luckily a reversal potion was also made to make her back to her usual happy self! #scienceandmaths #imaginations

1stXV  63 Craigclowan  14

Our final game before heading to Yorkshire for the 16th year in a row to play Giggleswick, Aysgarth and Sedbergh saw the 1stXV head up to Perth to play Craigclowan.  If truth be told, this was a difficult fixture with only a few days before tour and boys freshly back from a two week half term without having played much rugby!  That said, from the first whistle, we kept the ball for three or four minutes, going through phase after phase, recycling quickly time and again before Edward went over for the first try before Craigclowan had got their hands on the ball.

We were perhaps not at our fluent best this afternoon, even though we scored ten tries, and we certainly butchered four very easy run ins which we cannot afford to do against stronger opposition which we will come up against over the next two weeks, as we reach the real business end of the season.  Being clinical, accurate and staying focused is so important and although we played some scintillating rugby at times, we were sloppy on occasions and although the boggy pitch did not help, we were not as fluent as we have been.

Hugo and Sebastian were immense up front and it was great to see them running such good lines and being very aggressive in the contact area, whilst Quin and Jack ran the show in the backs with some mesmeric running despite the conditions.  But it was a useful run out, blowing the half term cobwebs away, and setting us up nicely for the challenges to come.

There is much to anticipate over the coming days, and seeing how we react when under pressure is something I have been looking forward to since the start of the season.

Good luck down south, and I know you will be marvellous ambassadors for the school, as always.

P3 had a fantastic trip to Mr Ker’s farm on Wednesday. We learnt about all the different things a farmer does throughout the year to help the livestock and crops to thrive including; sowing the grain, clipping the sheep, spraying the crops and feeding the cattle. The children got to see all the various machines which Mr Ker uses on the farm and even had a chance to sit on one of the tractors! It was a wonderful day which the children and staff thoroughly enjoyed.

A huge thank you to Mr Ker, his brother Andrew and RHET (Royal Highland Educational Trust) for helping to organise the day!

The Under Nines had a very enjoyable afternoon of hockey thankfully without any rain. The A team played first. Fettes elected to play thirds to allow them to rotate players on and off. I was very pleased to see Cargilfield working hard at being in spaces and spreading out helping each other and looking much more like a team.  Whilst Lucy was able to score a goal for Fettes, Aglaya and Beatrice were fearless in defence, coming in low to tackle and clearing wide as quickly as possible. This enabled the midfield of Bella and Nadia to work closely with Savannah and Bonnie upfront. Bonnie, Bella and Savannah each scored. Bella’s aim is much improved, Bonnie was strong and Savannah shone. Bonnie continued to hold her focus in the second third scoring a further two goals. We lost a little of our drive in the third half and Fettes put extra pressure on us. Aglaya saved the day at least once! However, we were still the stronger team and we finished with 2 goals from Bella, 2 from Savannah and one from Nadia. It was lovely to see all girls score and a great whole team effort. Much improved, girls! Cargilfield 10 Fettes 3

The B team played a closer game, winning the first two thirds by 3 goals to nil, with both Emilias scoring. We did not count the last third as Fettes were rotating their younger girls, but it is worth noting that Isla our captain, played particularly well with some lovely runs forward and she scored a hattrick. Valentina showed off her ball skills and Millie and Eliza defended strongly. I was very pleased with the progress the girls made during the game. They were playing far too close together initially but eventually spread out and enjoyed how much easier it was to pass and score goals! Some good learning!  Official score Cargilfield 3 Fettes 0

Loretto were straight on the offensive this afternoon and very quickly had the ball into our D. We were caught a little on the hop and failed to make much attempt to defend allowing Loretto to get their first goal. Our defenders were a little reluctant to tackle today holding back until the ball was right up near the gaol and giving Loretto the run of the pitch. By half time we were four goals down.

In the second half we were much more together.  Amenah worked well at the back and Jacqueline made a good tackle. Natasha and Rowan played very well up front and were well supported by Julia. In the final few moments Isobel managed to score. The player of the match has to be Natasha who worked incredibly hard today and smiled throughout.

Final score

Loretto 6, Cargilfield 1

4-3 win

On a cold and wintry afternoon on the astro, the 3rd hockey put in a very strong and steadfast performance against Belhaven securing a narrow but well-deserved win. The teams were evenly matched from the outset and the play was even with some great attacking from Belhaven,which was ably defended by Cicely and Annabella who did a great job in defence. Iona managed to keep a clean sheet in goal in the first half. Lots of running from the midfield players and a first goal from Cargilfield as Malayka was able to tap in the ball from close range after a run of dominant play. Shortly after this, Georgia plugged away and it was third time lucky after 2 saved shots. Great work in the middle from Cara and Matilda passing the ball forward and a standout performance from Rose who was running everywhere putting in some great passes.  With Ruby strong up front in the second half and Wendy making good midfield passes, the girls continued to play well and managed to hold off Belhaven until mid-way through this half. Belhaven had a good run of play and managed to score two goals on bounce. This could have been more but Cicely was immense in defence supported by Lulu and Arya who managed some great saves too to prevent the gap closing. Georgia achieved her hat trick with another goal in the second half and a final Belhaven goal was scored in the last few seconds to make it 4 -3. Well done girls, a great team effort and a super win. Everyone played their hearts out.

Our U9 squad travelled to Fettes for their annual festival on a brisk autumn day, despite a weather interrupted build up to our training this week the Cramond men were in good spirits. 

With a group stage format to the competition it was imperative they hit the ground running. First up was Clifton Hall and after Mr Stephen preached to the group the importance of passing the ball into space. It appeared for the first half we took this too literally, forgetting we might actually need to go forward at some stage. Thankfully our defence was superb and we started to break down Clifton Hall with some tenacious scavenging from the likes of Harry and Dexter. This led to a 4-1 win and a solid start to the competition.

After a three game hiatus, we resumed against the hosts Fettes B and proceeded to make a fast start racing into a three try lead through some fabulous handling a direct running which would serve us well as the day went on. Cargilfield running out comfortable 7-0 winners playing some eye catching rugby.

Our final group game saw us up against St Mary’s, Melrose who we had played in a fabulous fixture before half term drawing seven tries each. With St Mary’s also winning their first two games this became a semi-final and would prove to be a tense low scoring game. Despite trying to start the game with 8 players, a sneaky ploy from the coaching team, we settled well with Theo scoring a superb solo try after no time at all. Thereafter St Mary’s dominated possession, time and again they were met with our very own Curry and Underhill in the shape of Monty and Wilfred who made shuddering tackles to keep them out. Eventually after another desperate tackle, we were able to counter and score the decisive try to take us to the final.

The final saw us take on our North Edinburgh neighbours Fettes A who had beaten us in our first game of the year back in September. There were no signs of nerves in the final as we got off to another flying start with Jonah resembling a young Cheslin Kolbe, hot stepping his way to the line after less than a minute. The Cramond men were by this point playing some scintillating rugby, moving the ball down the line and offloading to go another score clear. Fettes then struck back with a deserved score, however, we rallied through a shuddering hit from Tristan which was scooped up by Calum who broke through finding Jonah again for a 3-1 lead. Another fantastic team try from the boys put the game away and despite a late Fettes fightback our U9’s came out on top 4-3.

A fabulous performance by the entire squad, which was built on a commitment to each other, solid defence and selfless attacking play. Well done!

The girls travelled to Fettes today full of high hopes and in good spirits for the annual tournament. The tournament attracts all the top hockey schools including the big day schools, so it was ideal preparation for next week.  

Our first match was against St George’s and after a bit of a scrappy start we soon settled and began to play better hockey.  Izzy scored first in open play, followed quickly by a number 1 short corner strike.  We began to stretch the play which is much more to our style and a good ball through from midfield saw Saphira pick it up and slot it in the goal. Clemmie made some strong tackles and we relied on her to get the ball away wide away from danger.

Cargilfield 3 St George’s 0

Our next pool game was against Edinburgh Academy and we couldn’t have asked for a better start with Sophie starting the scoring with less than 1 minute on the clock.  Sophie had a strong game, making many really powerful passes up the pitch and she was rewarded for her hard work by a top corner goal which really impressed the crowd as well as most of the players on the pitch!  Edinburgh Academy fought their way back in to the game and scored but this just spurred the girls on and Sophie switched play and scored neatly in the back of the net.  Rosanna played well in this game and pushed the play wide, channeling her opposite number away from the middle of the pitch.  

Cargilfield 3 Edinburgh Academy 1

We faced Craigclowan next and this was a great passing game in general.  Time after time we simply played the ball to our midfield who then played it hard in to the circle, aiming for post, for our strikers to simply pop it in.  Four of our goals came from this style of play and Laura, Saphira, Flora and Sophie all scored goals by being in the right place at the right time, watching the ball well and positioning themselves well.  Emma stood out in this game, especially in the second half when the pressure was on, and it was great to have her calm presence on the pitch, keeping the EA girls out of the circle.

Cargilfield 5 Craigclowan 0

We then faced Loretto in the quarter finals; as always, the Loretto girls were strong and demonstrated a good level of hockey.  The match was end to end with both teams trying hard to get the ball pushed up the pitch.  Clemmie and Emma worked hard in this match and kept the ball out of goal on many an occasion.  Laura played a great ball through to Sophie who reached on her reverse and casually slotted it in the goal.  The Loretto girls sprang back in to action and Caitlin was on top form, keeping a clean sheet in this game and keeping the Loretto girls out.

Cargilfield 1 Loretto 0

The semi final was against a strong looking Dollar and we knew from the first second that we were going to be in for a tough match.  Play quickly swung down our defending end and the Dollar girls pounced and scored their goal.  We tried hard to stay on track but we did look a bit panicked however eventually we settled and we pushed back up in to their circle, winning a penalty corner.  Izzy injected well and Sophie struck the ball sweetly, scoring on the far post.  Rosanna kept the width well and worked hard, both in attack and defence.  The Dollar girls came back fighting, but good work from Izzy in particular kept the game at bay and we entered half time at 1-1.

The game was just as exciting in the second half and it swung backwards and forward.  Caitlin made 2 excellent saves early on, denying 2 certain goals, and both teams just could not score that all-important winning goal. Flora had a strong second half and time after time she tackled the Dollar girls and turned the play round.   Laura positioned herself well near the post and tried hard to hassle the goal keeper.  The match finished 1-1 and the dreaded running penalties beckoned.

Dollar stepped up first and scored, despite and excellent effort from Caitlin.  Sophie was our first player to take one, and she coolly ran at the keeper, dragged the ball right and pulled it back, scoring in the back of the goal.  Caitlin was faced by a cool second Dollar girl, who took a shot but feisty Caitlin made a great save but unfortunately the striker had time for a rebound and scored.  Izzy stepped up next and scored the tightest of goals on the reverse; a real crowd pleaser but not good for my heart! Heroine Caitlin then upped her game and saved the third running penalty with great style.  Emma stepped up next but her penalty was saved. With both teams still unable to be split, we went to sudden death running penalties. 

It is a thankless task for anyone, but Sophie took the responsibility and stepped forward for her penalty.  Despite a great run, her strike just missed and the Dollar girl managed to score hers, which saw the match sway Dollar’s way. 

The girls were upset however they have learned a great deal today; we were the last Prep School left in a tournament dominated by the big day schools, and they should all be very proud of themselves for their hard work and tremendous effort.  

Well done to Heriot’s, and especially former pupil Catherine who was playing for Heriot’s, for winning the tournament also on running penalties after a draw with Dollar.

The game was just as exciting in the second half and it swung backwards and forward.  Caitlin made 2 excellent saves early on, denying 2 certain goals, and both teams just could not score that all-important winning goal. Flora had a strong second half and time after time she tackled the Dollar girls and turned the play round.   Laura positioned herself well near the post and tried hard to hassle the goal keeper.  The match finished 1-1 and the dreaded running penalties beckoned.

Dollar stepped up first and scored, despite and excellent effort from Caitlin.  Sophie was our first player to take one, and she coolly ran at the keeper, dragged the ball right and pulled it back, scoring in the back of the goal.  Caitlin was faced by a cool second Dollar girl, who took a shot but feisty Caitlin made a great save but unfortunately the striker had time for a rebound and scored.  Izzy stepped up next and scored the tightest of goals on the reverse; a real crowd pleaser but not good for my heart! Heroine Caitlin then upped her game and saved the third running penalty with great style.  Emma stepped up next but her penalty was saved. With both teams still unable to be split, we went to sudden death running penalties. 

It is a thankless task for anyone, but Sophie took the responsibility and stepped forward for her penalty.  Despite a great run, her strike just missed and the Dollar girl managed to score hers, which saw the match sway Dollar’s way. 

The girls were upset however they have learned a great deal today; we were the last Prep School left in a tournament dominated by the big day schools, and they should all be very proud of themselves for their hard work and tremendous effort.  

Well done to Heriot’s, and especially former pupil Catherine who was playing for Heriot’s, for winning the tournament also on running penalties after a draw with Dollar.

It was (as expected) freezing down at Dunbar but we were kitted out in base-layers!  In the early stages of the game, we dominated possession and had lots of chances to score but Belhaven defended strongly with their sticks down to block our shots.  It is always pleasing, however, to see things you work on in training come to fruition and when one of our attacking players made a run in front of the Belhaven goalkeeper, blocking her line of sight of the ball as Amalia shot, we opened the scoring.  It was a bit frustrating not to score more before Belhaven broke up the other end and had a few chances of their own, only for Bea to thwart them along with our epic defending from Esme and Tunrayo and then Lara who made some crucial interceptions.  

The half term team talk prompted a discussion on how we could communicate better.  In the first half, we were often guilty of hitting the ball without looking and not knowing whether or not we had more time to look up and pass the ball to a player in space.  To help give our more central players more time, we decided that we would shout “Time!” if a player on the ball had time to turn on the ball and look up before making a pass.  When I told them that usually in football, team mates always shout “Man on!” when a defending player sneaks up behind them.  This prompted a lovely moment when one girl questioned what I had just said by saying, “Wait? Manon?” referring to our French gap student!  And so, our very own warning call to our team mates was born and the second half, you could hear the cries (in their best French accents) of “Manon! Manon!” 

We were very narrow in the first half and the girls were told to spread out better in the second half and they improved in this area with Sophia, Lyla and Dulce occupying wide positions meaning they received the ball in space.  Tunrayo began to look up when she heard the call “Time!” to make some strong sweep passes to her team mates.  Our second goal came from Esme who cut in from the right wing to go on a mazy run across the D before flicking the ball on her reverse.  This might have seemed like a terrific individual goal; however, her team mates played a crucial role by running into space which took defenders away to give her space. 

rightColBody

Belhaven got one back after a little lapse in concentration but the shot was strong and accurate in the corner not giving Bea any chance.  This was none more than Belhaven deserved given their hard-work, particularly from their main player in the centre who covered almost every square metre of astro.

However, it was our captain Jess who had the final say with a lovely finish on the half volley following a cross from Athena who had worked very hard all match.  

It was a well-deserved victory and well played to all the girls who have improved so much from the last time I had the pleasure of taking them on a Wednesday.  Special praise goes to Esme with her tenacious play, super finish for the second goal but most of all, reacting well by clearing the ball off the pitch following the calls of, “Manon! Manon!”

This Wednesday brought another fixture against Belhaven for the 2nds, this time at home. The two weeks off for half term may have resulted in fresher legs, however the girls also reverted to some old habits. Despite a little too much play going down the middle, we managed to win two short corners fairly early on, both of which were converted brilliantly by Poppy. Cargilfield dominated possession but too often found the flat sticks of Belhaven, instead of a team-mate. Josephine broke through with a fantastic run and a cracking reverse hit from near the baseline which found the backboard. 3-0 at half time. Belhaven stepped up in the second half and put pressure on our defence but Izzy in particular tackled well and Valentina made some lovely saves. The second half was more two-sided and Cargilfield slightly lost their cool. However, they held on and kept the score to 3-0 at full time. Some really promising play with more to come, which is really positive going into the second half of the season.

Nursery enjoyed an Autumn adventure to Cammo Estate where we identified different trees leaves and creatures. We all had great fun out in the fresh air and stunning scenery. We saw a heron, a reflective pond, squelchy mud and played running games before a light snack.

The Ardvreck 7s is always one of the highlights of the prep school rugby circuit up here in Scotland, and having won the Loretto 7s earlier in the term, hopes were high that we could challenge once again.  Now we have moved to a two week half term, this event falls right at the end of two weeks of inactivity which is not ideal....added to this, Fergus was unable to play and Rory got injured in the second pool game which left us down to just seven men for the rest of the tournament which was a tough ask to be honest.  That said, we were the 2nd best team there and on another day, with everyone back, and not in half term mode, the final result may well have been different.

In the pool, we beat a surprisingly good Strathallan side by four tries(they had beaten Merchiston the day before at 13-a-side rugby) before beating Loretto, which meant we played Belhaven in the 1/4 final whom we comfortably disposed of.  This put us through to play Merchiston in the semi final and although we scored the first try, it was one game too far really and a couple of poor decisions, spilling the ball in contact instead of moving it away, handed the initiative to our friends from Colinton and they fully deserved to win and so go through to the Final.  They were just that bit more aggressive at the breakdown area and our tired legs, with no reserves waiting to come on, were just a bit slower when it mattered today.  Ironically, they met Strathallan, whom we had beaten comfortably in the group, as they had beaten Fettes in the other semi final and it was no surprise that Merchiston won the Final with something to spare.

A driech afternoon up in Crieff, but we played some excellent rugby and kept the ball really well.  I suppose we just lacked that sharpness we had before half term, but that should not be a surprise when you think we have had 15 days away from the rugby field!  There is much to look forward to over the next few weeks for the 1stXV, starting with the annual tour down to Yorkshire.  As ever, we will be warmly looked after by our hosts, the rugby will be tough, but plenty of memories will be made.....I cannot wait!

Well played today, boys.
