We were delighted to see that Jamie Sole, a former pupil of Cargilfield, has bene selected to play for the Scotland Club XV against Ireland this Friday as a precursor to the start of this year's Six Nations.  He is the fourth of the Sole children, who are all Cargilfield Fps, to represent Scotland with Gemma (Netball) and Chris and Tom (Cricket) having already represented their country.  We wish him the best of luck, and of course to the full Scotland team as they start their 6 Nations campaign against Ireland at the weekend.

After 16 years as a valuable member of the Pre-Prep support team Rhona Douglas is leaving us for new pastures. Over the years she has worked with countless children in class supporting them with their learning and providing a listening ear.  She has been invaluable in helping staff in so many different ways in the classroom, on trips and in the preparation of plays and performances.  In particular, Rhona has been a stalwart in the playground out in all weathers supervising, cajoling and tending to those in need.

All three of her children have attended Cargilfield and gone on to great things.  We all wish Rhona well as she moves on to a job in the travel industry.

Won 9-0

In driving rain and hail and ferocious wind, the boys battled the wild weather to produce some fairly decent hockey. Our passes were fast and we were ruthless in front of goal, which was one of the targets that we talked about pre-game. With so many first half goals, we decided to mix the teams up for the second half, which was fun for the boys despite the terrible weather.

On a bitterly cold and wet afternoon, the Cargilfield boys showed great resilience in their approach to this match. They worked hard in attack and defence and deserved their 5-1 victory.

Particular credit might go to Otis in goal who made a number of excellent saves as well as commanding his area from advancing forwards. Chay was powerful in the middle and, if his shooting had been more accurate, we might have won even more convincingly. Patrick showed skill and guile on the left wing and Oliver carried the ball out well from the back. In truth though the team linked well as a group and paid little attention to the harsh conditions.

A well deserved win, boys.

On a truly atrocious day our U11B’s were playing our return fixture against a Fettes side we had beaten narrowly the week before. After a quick warm up/decision to stay warm in the team bus to prevent any early victims of hyperthermia, our boys got off to a fast start with threatening movement and quality build up play coming to nothing.

After a string of short corners to Fettes and lengthy possession in their favour we began to grind them down and largely against the run of play Maxi slotted home after some incisive passing from Tom and Conrad. The end to the half brought more Fettes possession and a lot more rain, but the boys stood firm with some particularly good defence from Kit, who as a rather reluctant defender began to excel.

The half time message was to look less like Arsenal by way of passing the ball into the goal and instead have more of a direct approach and test their keeper. This message was well received and after some fabulous build up the ball was eventually scrambled in, as referee at the other end of the pitch and with limited vision I struggled to see the scorer. What was seen two minutes later was a flop of blonde hair weaving in and out of would be defenders, resembling Michael Owen against Argentina in 1998 (lost on Tom) score a tremendous individual goal to seal victory for the Cramond men. 

A fabulous team performance in truly dreich Edinburgh conditions, with notable performances from the F5’s who stepped up tremendously. Well done boys!

Two under 9s joined the Under 10s and whilst it quickly became clear that Ardvreck were bigger and stronger, I was very pleased with effort of the whole team. Our heads were a little down after the first quarter as Ardvreck were intercepting the ball very well and passing well, sometimes above our heads! Lyla swopped to GK to assist Tessa who despite great leaps couldn’t stop the goals being scored. We were 5 down after the first half. Bella stayed as WD, where she put in a gutsy performance opposite a much larger player. Natasha moved to GS and Bonnie to centre. This worked better and we started to fight back. Getting into space and passing more quickly helped as did some clever bounce passes. We managed to get the ball to Julia and she scored three times. It was a spirited performance from Cargilfield and I was very proud of the girls. Final score Ardvreck 8 Cargilfield 3.

We were lucky to get a game with the snow and rain around Crieff. We were able to play In Ardvreck’s small sports hall. We quickly learned to reign our passes in as the court was very narrow. Ardvreck started well with an early shot on goal but fortunately it missed. We passed the ball away rapidly and Nadia scored our first goal. The ball seemed to move extra quickly in this small space and nobody could afford to stand still. The girls worked extremely well together and their effort was very pleasing indeed. Our target after the first quarter was to hang on to the balls we intercepted. We started to do this much better with Valentina making the most progress. The second quarter saw some excellent passing with 2 further goals. Both Nadia and Bea chased after loose balls, grabbed the ball and scored. Great footwork also. Valentina and Emilia DH were working very well but Ardvreck did manage to score one goal. In the third and final quarters we started to look stronger with the girls trying very hard to get into good spaces and passing cleanly and accurately. Aglaya ran everywhere as centre and Mille and Emilia were full of energy on the wing. It was a great team performance. We scored 3 more, bringing our total to 6, 4 to Nadia and 2 to Beatrice. Final score Cargilfield 6 Ardvreck 2

We were lucky to get a game with the snow and rain around Crieff. We were able to play In Ardvreck’s small sports hall. We quickly learned to reign our passes in as the court was very narrow. Ardvreck started well with an early shot on goal but fortunately it missed. We passed the ball away rapidly and Nadia scored our first goal. The ball seemed to move extra quickly in this small space and nobody could afford to stand still. The girls worked extremely well together and their effort was very pleasing indeed. Our target after the first quarter was to hang on to the balls we intercepted. We started to do this much better with Valentina making the most progress. The second quarter saw some excellent passing with 2 further goals. Both Nadia and Bea chased after loose balls, grabbed the ball and scored. Great footwork also. Valentina and Emilia DH were working very well but Ardvreck did manage to score one goal. In the third and final quarters we started to look stronger with the girls trying very hard to get into good spaces and passing cleanly and accurately. Aglaya ran everywhere as centre and Mille and Emilia were full of energy on the wing. It was a great team performance. We scored 3 more, bringing our total to 6, 4 to Nadia and 2 to Beatrice. Final score Cargilfield 6 Ardvreck 2

This afternoon, the whole of the U9 squad were able to take part in a match against Merchiston, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Having played in the sports hall last week, the boys were much more comfortable in adapting their usual game on the astro to inside. I was pleased that my advice from last week about using the space to beat the opposition rather than everyone clogging the middle of the pitch. We continue to improve each week in training and this was very evident in our overall gameplay today.

Well done, boys!

The U11Bs managed to escape the weather and were in the sportshall today against Cramond. Cramond were very well drilled, with some fantastic passing and shooting. We worked well together but often lost our player. Captain, Mariella shot well, with some great balls in from Lucy S. Amalia and Athena were strong at the back and in mid-court. The girls changed positions a bit today which highlighted their adaptability and range of skills. Despite this, we lost 15-5. Lots of positives to take into training though.

The U11As performed well today in wet and cold conditions. Kilgraston were quick on their feet but we marked well and Judith and Tunrayo were accurate with their shooting. Captain, Anna made some brilliant interceptions and Lottie found space well. A good all round team performance led to a 14-0 win. Well done girls!

The  3rd hockey team travelled away to play Merchiston on a cold and very wet day.  Having had two relatively straightforward matches this season they quickly found that the Merchiston boys were not going to allow them to have it all their own way; they were strong, fast and big and the boys had to work hard to win the ball and keep possession of it.  Within the first couple of minutes though, we had a chance to score but the shot went wide.  Merchiston countered with a very direct line of attack and found the back of the goal after a mistake in defence.  The boys rallied and managed to claw their way back into the competition with a goal soon after.  This was followed by another goal for each side to make the score 2-2 at half time.

In the second half, Merchiston started off strong and within a minute had scored, again employing the direct route straight up the field – relying on their strength to battle through.  By this time, the Cargilfield boys had realised that the only way they would win the match was to use their stronger passing skills to work the ball into the opposition D and take shots on goal.  They did this to good effect and scored two goals to edge the match 4-3.

A particular mention of Murray, who did a fantastic job in defence despite being new to the position.  Well done to all the boys for braving the elements and giving of their best.

1ST TEAM

Kilgraston got off to a strong start scoring quickly and taking us a little by surprise. In the first third they dominated and although we managed to get the ball up to our D or shooting was a bit tentative. We did not use our space effectively, following the ball rather than moving into space to receive the ball.

In the second third we were much more focused our shooting was on point (well done Rose and Laura). Izzy was effective at Centre with fantastic court coverage and we moved the score up to 9 goals to 7 ahead. We continued our dominance into the final third with some good work around the D by Emma and Rosanna. Rosanna was particularly effective at her interceptions which prevented Kilgraston from scoring. She was well supported by Allannah and Emma L on the wing.

Final score Cargilfield 15, Kilgraston 10

3rd TEAM

The third team were on fire today. Our defence was really effective. Tight marking by Valentina and Issy meant that there was very little opportunity for Kilgraston to score. Although we do need to work on the consistency of our shooting and our mobility in the D we still managed very well with 3 goals in this third for Emma K. The wing players (Cicely and Cara with Caitlin at Centre) were excellent in moving the ball swiftly to our shooters. In the second third we increased the pressure on Kilgraston still further and widened our lead. Charlotte worked hard in the D and scored a goal. In the final third Kilgraston fought back with some excellent attacking play and some well-timed interceptions and were very much our equals however but by then we were too far ahead to be caught.

Very well played girls

Final score Cargilfield 12, Kilgraston 1 

4th TEAM

Our girls fought an epic battle. They worked really hard and there has been a considerable improvement in their play since our last match. We started strongly with some excellent shooting form Georgia. Ruby was superb at centre and worked very well with Annabella to get the ball to the D. We were 5 goals to 2 ahead at the end of this third. Kilgraston came back strongly and although we gave our best efforts we lost our way a bit and began to intercept but not look carefully at where to pass the ball on. The teams were neck and neck at the end of the second third. Going in to the third quarter we felt the pressure. Lottie was stalwart in defence and was supported by Arya but Kilgraston just edged ahead for a well-deserved victory.

Final score Cargilfield 10, Kilgraston 13

In our return fixture against Fettes, the conditions were brutal. Both teams braved the elements and it was quite an evenly poised first half with just an individual solo effort from Cody which gave us the narrowest of leads at the break. We had quite a few chances including an effort from Cameron which rebounded off the post but the Fettes defence was tight on our players in the D and their athletic goalkeeper made some terrific saves. 

The half time team talk was about moving the ball faster and taking only a few touches - much like Fettes were doing in the first. In the second half our movement was better and we took our chances well. James’ shot on the right had an awkward bounce which went over the keeper’s foot. Fettes got one back to make it 2-1 when their accurate shot at a penalty corner eluded our defender on the post. However our defence was otherwise excellent with Charlie and Harry being particularly strong. Thomas had to make a few sliding saves and our outfield were in the right place to clear the danger. James had plenty of the ball on the right but the conditions underfoot were tricky.


rightColBody

It didn’t stop him playing some excellent cut backs to our strikers but a little composure was needed to make the most of them.   Oliver looked to break quickly at the free hits and found Cody who had drifted in behind the defence to get his second. Hayden made some lovely passes into midfield and grew into the game whilst Xander played solidly in that holding midfield position as an extra screen in front of the back two. 

Cody was the star player and completed his hat trick after a well worked penalty corner which involved some sharp passing from James to Charles who laid it on a plate for Cody to poke the ball into the goal. It was a 5-1 win but that didn’t reflect the overall game in which Fettes had a lot of possession.  Well done to all the players who battled in the wet!

In our return fixture against Fettes, the conditions were brutal. Both teams braved the elements and it was quite an evenly poised first half with just an individual solo effort from Cody which gave us the narrowest of leads at the break. We had quite a few chances including an effort from Cameron which rebounded off the post but the Fettes defence was tight on our players in the D and their athletic goalkeeper made some terrific saves. 

The half time team talk was about moving the ball faster and taking only a few touches - much like Fettes were doing in the first. In the second half our movement was better and we took our chances well. James’ shot on the right had an awkward bounce which went over the keeper’s foot. Fettes got one back to make it 2-1 when their accurate shot at a penalty corner eluded our defender on the post. However our defence was otherwise excellent with Charlie and Harry being particularly strong. Thomas had to make a few sliding saves and our outfield were in the right place to clear the danger. James had plenty of the ball on the right but the conditions underfoot were tricky.

It didn’t stop him playing some excellent cut backs to our strikers but a little composure was needed to make the most of them.   Oliver looked to break quickly at the free hits and found Cody who had drifted in behind the defence to get his second. Hayden made some lovely passes into midfield and grew into the game whilst Xander played solidly in that holding midfield position as an extra screen in front of the back two. 

Cody was the star player and completed his hat trick after a well worked penalty corner which involved some sharp passing from James to Charles who laid it on a plate for Cody to poke the ball into the goal. It was a 5-1 win but that didn’t reflect the overall game in which Fettes had a lot of possession.  Well done to all the players who battled in the wet!

Form 4 visited Blackhall Library. They learned all about the different stickers on the books and how Blackhall organise their books into different categories. Irena, the Blackhall Librarian, read a story called Stardust and explained about the different locations of the libraries throughout Edinburgh. She gave Form 4 Library Membership forms to fill in so they can start to borrow books too. They are going to take what they have learned what Blackhall Library and feedback to Cargilfield about how to improve our Library.

Thank you to Jonathan Anderson, Headmaster at Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh, who came to preach in Chapel this morning. 

He talked about a book he had read recently ‘A Letter to my Younger Self’ where famous people write an imaginary letter to their younger selves, offering advice on what lies ahead in the future. He said that all of us can take advice and guidance from those around us in to making good decisions now and on the future; take the opportunity to do new things, do not regret trying something new and trying your very best. Enjoy the wonder of opportunity of what lies ahead.

The Eco Committee presented all the exciting new things they have been planning and the hard work that has been going on behind the scenes. Rome wasn’t built in a day!  The main focus and difference they want to make at Cargilfield, and for the planet, is the recycling at school. New recycling bins have been put in main foyer, opposite the Games board, beside the new eco display. If they are used successfully used they can be implemented throughout the school. Watch this space! The new Cargilfield Eco Code is also displayed on the Eco board too; it represents ideas from the whole school. 

Links have been made with Fettes, a school in London and Kenya discussing what is happening with their eco projects. Some future projects at Cargilfield include having a school water bottle made out of recycled materials, designing the Reynold’s Garden to be used as an eco-garden, a beach clean-up and having a successful recycling waste disposal system. The Nursery Eco Committee have been extremely busy growing vegetables, as well as litter picking, and the Pre Prep have had a big focus on wildlife, having talks from Donald the Explorer and previously had workshops from ChangeWorks. The Eco Committee want you to think the next time you use a shiny wrapper that is aluminium foil or plastic film - do ‘the scrunch test’ to check whether the wrapper in your hand is recyclable or not; if it springs back open it’s not recyclable foil. 

We know that everyone is very busy at Cargilfield, but taking a few seconds to think about which bin you will choose or how to you re-use an item can make years’ worth of difference to the planet.

Shooting club on a Wednesday evening is always well attended as our keen shooters head over to the range at Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh under the expert eye of coach Tom Diggle, a Scottish and junior GB shooter. There has been lots of progress and many thanks to Merchiston for letting us come over every week!

On a pleasant day at Cargilfield our U11B’s were up against our neighbours Fettes. After a frantic opening period with chances at both ends, eventually Cargilfield took the lead with a fabulous short corner routine finished by Hayden.

Fettes scored arguably the goal of the match however with a fabulous jinking solo run and clinical finish.

To our credit we responded with some fabulous link up play from Conrad and Hayden. We look forward to the return fixture next week, a super performance from the boys - well done!

Our U11 Reds had a brilliant first home outing this week, they moved the ball with precision and outplayed Fettes for large periods of the first half but simply couldn't get the ball past Zac (our goalie we had lent them).

The second half was more clinical with Freddie scoring a brace and fan favourite Theo scoring and managing to please the fans with an autograph signing on full time! Well done boys!

2nds netball v Fettes

This was an incredibly exciting and nail-biting game of netball. Fettes started strongly and it really took until the second quarter for us to find our feet. Once we did we played very well. Our defence today was superb with Clara as the star of the show making some fabulous interceptions in the end third and was well supported by Issy at Goal Keep. Our shooting was a little bit tentative but improved as the game progressed with some fabulous work from all three shooters, Poppy, Clemmie and Rose. Hats off to Rose who had to play out of position for some of the game. Josephine impressed at Centre and on the wing and used her long reach to intercept well. A big thank you to Emma L and Izzy A who played a half each for us as we were down a player.  In the second and third quarters we dominated the play and it was really nice to see the girls marking well and using the wings to get the ball up to our shooters.

In the last few minutes Fettes just pulled ahead. After such a close match it was a well-deserved victory for them.

Final score Cargilfield 13, Fettes 15

3rd netball v Fettes

We stared strongly and maintained a lead for the first half of the game. Emma K and Charlotte worked well together at the goal end although as a team we were not as good at marking as we should have been. In the third quarter we let the Fettes attackers away with too much and they started to pull ahead. We allowed the pace of the game to speed up and this meant that it went rather out of control and caused us to make several errors including a few calls for obstruction in the D. Caitlin was our “man” of the match and pulled things together directing the play as Centre for some of the game. She worked tirelessly to move the ball forward and to evade her defender. Bethany also gave everything on the Wing and her footwork was excellent. We have some work to do on our marking and also on our fitness. However, for only our second game of the season there are certainly a lot of things we are doing well. As we left, the Fettes coach commented on how polite and friendly our girls were, which was great to hear.

Final score Cargilfield 5, Fettes 10

The A team played at Arniston and whilst the game was initially quite close, 3-1 in the first quarter, Fettes started to get the better of us. Nadia shot well when she had the ball but we gave away the ball too often. We need to work on strengthening our passes and making sure that we are in good positions to receive the passes. Too often our passes did not arrive on target as Fettes managed to intercept them. There were some good interceptions, notably from Savannah, Bella and from Valentina but sometimes we lost the ball again straight away. Bea tried hard as GS but needs to learn to keep her feet on court. After a chat the defence was a little better. We were marking much more closely and closing down Fettes’s passing. We scored more in the third quarter, 2 to Fettes one and we had some super clean passing to achieve these goals. Fettes went ahead again in the final quarter and won the game comfortably 10-4. Lots to work on but good fun! We were pleased to hear that the Bs had won 2-0.

Wolves: L 3-1

Tigers: W 3-0

Lions: L 2-1

Cheetahs: W 1-0

Panthers: L 1-0

This afternoon, the whole of the U9 squad were able to take part in a match against Fettes, which they thoroughly enjoyed. Having become used to the astro during training, the boys found it challenging at times to adjust to the confines of the sports hall and the slightly different rules that come with playing indoor hockey. However, I felt that it was a good opportunity to see how they could take what they had learnt in training and adapt it to a different environment. I was pleased that all the boys played with enthusiasm as their fledgling hockey career takes off and were keen to get stuck in. The standard of passing and dribbling has improved a great deal since the start of term, which is great to see. However, the use of space and communication on the pitch is an area that we are going to have to work on in training.

Well done, boys!

The 3rd hockey team had their second chance to put their skills to the test when they travelled down the road to Fettes this week.

The boys played well from start to finish and were able to stamp their authority on the game from early on by dominating in defence and attack.  The best contest happened in the midfield but once the Cargilfield boys started to use their wings they found it much easier to gain ground.  Hugo and Matthew were steadfast at the back, which left Albie, the goalkeeper, only needed to make a handful of saves for the entire 40-minute match.  Sebastien played a marvellous game on the wing, mixing up great passing with dribbles to the opposition base-line before cutting the ball back to the forwards – this resulted in numerous tap-in goals.  Monty, Kyan and Ollie provided a determined and effective attacking force, whilst Alexander, Finlay and Jaime kept the midfield organised.

In the second half, the passing became more fluid and Seb putting the finishing touches on some commendable team play.  It was a comfortable win in the end but not without some exciting moments.

Well done to all the boys for a marvellous team effort and a big thank you to our hosts who showed great sportsmanship and determination.

The boys played well from start to finish and were able to stamp their authority on the game from early on by dominating in defence and attack.  The best contest happened in the midfield but once the Cargilfield boys started to use their wings they found it much easier to gain ground.  Hugo and Matthew were steadfast at the back, which left Albie, the goalkeeper, only needed to make a handful of saves for the entire 40-minute match.  Sebastien played a marvellous game on the wing, mixing up great passing with dribbles to the opposition base-line before cutting the ball back to the forwards – this resulted in numerous tap-in goals.  Monty, Kyan and Ollie provided a determined and effective attacking force, whilst Alexander, Finlay and Jaime kept the midfield organised.

In the second half, the passing became more fluid and Seb putting the finishing touches on some commendable team play.  It was a comfortable win in the end but not without some exciting moments.

Well done to all the boys for a marvellous team effort and a big thank you to our hosts who showed great sportsmanship and determination.

1st Netball v Fettes

The girls had a tough day at Fettes, facing a tall and well-drilled side. Fettes started strongly and we found ourselves a bit on the back foot.  However we dug deep and like last week, we battled our way back in to the match.  With the score at 7-5 after the first quarter the match was actually closer than it felt.  We struggled a bit with our confidence and let the Fettes girls up their game.  Rosanna was tested in defence and she worked particularly hard, trying her best to turn the play round.  Fettes simply scored every time they entered the circle and we found ourselves 14-6 down at half time.  They pushed ahead in the third quarter so by the final quarter, it really was an impossible task.  Saphira and Laura shot well, however we were simply outplayed by a better side and lost 28-11.

4th Netball v Fettes

The 4th girls had a close match against Fettes in an end to end match.  It was great to see the girls play in a variety of positions and we rotated them throughout the match.  The Fettes girls scored first but we battled hard to get the ball back down to our end.  We were 3-0 down after the first quarter but we settled a bit better in the second quarter and pulled the game back to 7-4 thanks to some goals from Malayka and Georgia.  Ruby stood out in the third quarter, scoring 3 of our 4 goals and her court coverage was excellent.  We pulled the match back to 9-8 but we didn’t manage to score in the last quarter and Fettes popped on in the net, so the match finished a close 10-8 to Fettes.

The first team were keen to keep their winning start to the season going and arrived a Fettes raring to go. We made a solid start and went on the attack. With a few quick goals, we settled into our game plan and had the midfield running the show. We were ruthless in front of goal with Jack A, Edward M and Max L scoring some brilliant reverse stick shots. At the end of the first half we pushed up looking for another goal but lost concentration and let Fettes in, scoring a good goal to finish the half. 

In the second half we looked to play  more of a passing game and it worked, with some nice passing around the back by the defenders. Occasionally we got a bit too comfortable at the back but with good teamwork we were able to stop 2 on the line. We ended up scoring another two goals and not conceding in the second half which was a fantastic team effort for the boys. Let’s hope we continue our winning ways. Well done

U11A

What a game for the U11As against Fettes today! The girls have worked hard in training over the last week and it paid off today. Venetia, Isabella and Annika were a force to be reckoned with at the back. Anna and Lottie worked tirelessly in mid-court, feeding great passes through to our star shooting trio of Judith, Tunrayo and Esme. The girls kept their composure throughout and the game finished 14-3.

U11C

With a large squad today, the U11Cs always had fresh legs on court. It was a close game from start to finish with Fettes just pulling away in the final quarter to win 5-3. Julia, Amenah and our captain, Isobel, shot superbly. Natasha, in particular was fantastic mid-court. We have some work to do on our footwork but today was very positive, with some good passing sequences.

The Music Scholars’ Group enjoyed a guided tour of the historic musical instrument collection at St Cecilia’s Hall with Dr Sarah Deters on Tuesday. Dr Deters explain to us the detail of the evolution of certain instruments, focusing particularly keyboard instruments (including the organ, harpsichord, clavichord, and piano) and woodwind instruments. Early keyboard instruments came in all shapes and sizes, including ones you could fold up and carry around with you.

It was great to have the opportunity to try out some of the examples and feel how different early keyboard instruments are from the ones we are used to playing. In particular the group noticed a much ‘lighter’ touch to the keys of the harpsichords and early pianos that would make fast runs and decorations easier to play delicately.

However, this came with a drawback, because the larger Romantic repertoire would literally break these instruments if you tried to play it on them, which was a frequent problem for composer-pianists such as Liszt who were looking to expand the volume and range of the piano of their times! We learnt some amazing facts, for example that the organ dates back to Roman times and that you can play a garden hose just like a trumpet! A trip to the museum is highly recommended for all ages!

It was a perfect afternoon for a netball match on the small astro. The conditions were great and the girls were fantastic. They worked so well and their passing and footwork is increasingly more accurate as the weeks go on. In the first quarter, Mariella and Jess fed the ball really well to the scoring circle and Issy and Lucy were able to covert their chances very cleanly. Maddy and Famke were strong in defence and the Fettes girls didn’t really get a change to even have an attempt on goal. A similar pattern of play followed in the second quarter with more strong defended in the goal area from Sophia and Amalia. Jess was working really well as centre ensuring the flow of play remained fast and accurate. 2 more Cargilfield goals left it at 5 – 0 at half term. The Fettes girls came back stronger in the second half and managed to have a few more chances on goal bur were only able to convert one in the third quarter. More strong play from Cargilfield kept feeding the ball to the GK and GS and Issy and Mariella were able to add further to the goal tally. The passing from the girls was so clean and very speedy and they were all working really hard. Really proud of the girls today. 

Final score Fettes 1, Cargilfield 8

Well done Fettes’s for keeping going despite the scoreline. We really enjoyed our afternoon.

Donald from Wildside Nature started off his day at Cargilfield by giving a very informative talk to P1 to Form 8 in Chapel about plastic waste issues around the world. He told us about some of the things he has done to help animals and suggested some useful tasks we can do to help. Small changes to our everyday approach to simple tasks will make a big difference worldwide! He spent the morning with Form 4 teaching them all about Scottish and Chinese wildlife as they are learning about China in Geography and Scotland in History. He showed them fascinating animal skeletons, which linked to why those animals lived in China or Scotland. They then built beaver dams and tested to see if the materials they used worked.


Form 6 then spent the afternoon working on Marine life. The students have already looked at the Oceans in geography lessons last term and they were able to share and apply some of their own prior knowledge. Lots of interesting and engaging activities were undertaken including creating a mini-ocean, identifying different sea creatures using bones, skulls and teeth and an activity looking at green turtles. A very compelling afternoon with some super work by everyone.

introTextThe golden rule at Cargilfield
image/cms/resources/images-1-1.jpeg

leftColBody

The children in the Pre-Prep at Cargilfield love it when Mr Taylor pops in for an assembly and mentions his three school rules. Everyone from Primary One to Primary Three choruses Rule 1-Be kind, Rule 2-Be kind, Rule 3-Be kind. 

For teachers of young children there are few more important rules to teach to any age of child. 

Be kind to the other children in your class. You will make more friends if you behave like this and you will feel really good about yourself. 

Be kind to other children in school including brothers and sisters! Treat other children the way you would like to be treated yourself. 

Be kind to adults who work in school. Be polite, friendly and helpful to grown ups who work with you and you will find life will go more smoothly. 

Be kind to mum and dad. You love them, so show it with your behaviour to them. Try to do what they ask you to do and see if there is anything you could do to help them to make their life easier. Just give them a hug now and again!

Be kind to yourself. Get enough sleep, don’t spend too much time online, eat healthily and play outside often. 

For teachers of young children there are few more important rules to stick to when working with any age of child. This doesn’t mean spoiling the children or excusing unpleasant behaviour, but dealing with issues and talking them through instead of just reprimanding pupils when things go wrong. Children usually misbehave for a reason, whether it is boredom, frustration, reacting to another’s behaviour towards them or just waking up in a bad mood. 

Be kind to the children in your class. Body language, tone of voice and eye contact are so important to demonstrate to the children that you are really listening to them and that what they say and think really matters to you. They may be young, but they can tell if you are really fully engaged in their communication. Greeting them in the mornings and having an individual conversation makes them feel an instant connection each day.

rightColBody

Be kind to the children you come into contact with each day. In the same way engage with other children in the school, comment positively on behaviour, uniform etc and develop a positive relationship with others. If you can’t say something positive try to use constructive criticism. 

Be kind to your colleagues and ancillary staff. However busy you are, make the time to socialise at some point in your working day. Find out a little about your colleagues so that you understand what they are dealing with when they leave school each day –young children, older relatives, medical issues or financial problems. 

Be kind to the parents of children in your care. Be understanding if they are grumpy or have forgotten their child’s kit and homework for the third time that week. They may be juggling other children, stressful times at work or difficult emotional issues. Keep them informed of school events coming up and give them honest feedback about their child regularly making sure they are aware of day to day activities in class. 

Be kind to yourself. Make sure you have time for yourself and have life outside school. Whether you choose to pamper yourself at a spa, push yourself physically with sport or exercise, singing in a choir, playing in an orchestra, watching a movie, climbing a hill, reading a bestseller, having a great meal, knitting a jumper or retail therapy. It makes such a difference if the teacher comes in fresh each day with a positive response to their day in the classroom. 

Leading by example is essential of course-be kind, be kind, be kind.

The second week of reeling was once again really well attended, with another 60 children coming along before evening clubs start to learn new reels and have a lot of fun too! This week, we started to learn the Eightsome Reel, and everyone enjoyed trying to remember the Dashing White Sergeant from last week as well.

DSC01273It was a wet and blustery day as P2 set off on their trip to Dynamic Earth to find out more about dinosaurs and about our wonderful planet Earth.  Our first interactive storytelling session saw us joining  three dinosaurs on a thrilling adventure to find their friends after a volcanic eruption destroyed their home. We encountered a fearsome tyrannosaurus on the way but the ingenuity of our dinosaur friends saved the day. We were given the opportunity to handle specimens including dinosaur teeth, bones and claws, even real dinosaur dung, and did some fossil digging with Terry the triceratops. 

Our second workshop took us on an exciting adventure to the International Space Station where we helped with experiments such as water filtering, fixing the space toilet, sleeping in space, selecting suitable materials to build a space suit and forming a human ladder to assist the astronaut on her perilous space walk outside the Space Station to fix a solar panel! We also watched a film in 4D where we flew across the globe visiting different habitats and meeting the animals that lived there. We even crash landed in a rainforest and got charged at by a rhino!  The highlight of the visit was perhaps in the 360 degrees Showdome where we first watched a film about the Apollo space programme, and the first moon landing exactly fifty years ago. P2 spontaneously applauded when the space capsule successfully landed on the surface within seconds of the fuel running out! Our second visit to the show dome took us  on a dizzying trip through space right back to the beginning of Time with the ‘Big Bang’ exploding  above our heads! What things we discovered! Did you know that we are actually made of stars!? And that the first animal in Space was actually a dog?!  

Our brains were filled with amazing facts and we came away with lots of inspiring questions, which no doubt we will start to answer as our exciting Space topic unfolds over the term!

The boys were very excited for the first game of the season as we welcomed Loretto to Cargilfield.  We played some excellent hockey at times and really dominated possession.  Our tackling was superb but we need to work on being more composed on the ball and make a strong pass after making that tackle.  It is early days but we will be aiming to improve our running into the space more and being accurate with our passing and making good decisions.  Playing 8 a side on our slightly smaller than full size astro just meant that we were tripping over each other a little and what we need is good communication. 

I was particularly pleased with Xander’s effort in the match; his composure on the ball was good when the Loretto defenders dived in and he is getting his head up and looking for a pass.  Cody showed his usual excellent dribbling skill through the middle of the park scoring a few goals.  James’ attacking prowess on the right was terrific and he is really beginning to get his head up and pick the correct pass.  Overall it was a pleasing start to the term and with a high level of effort in training, we will get better.  Final score Cargilfield 10 – Loretto 2.

The boys were really looking forward to the start of the season. We went to Loretto looking to make a winning start and right from the first whistle we were on the attack. The boys linked up very well especially the midfield of J Adams, E May and M Lambert. We dominated possession in the first half but didn’t quite take our chances with their goalie making some great saves. We had a different game plan in the second half but it took a while to adjust and get it right, which put out defence under pressure but we kept them at bay. Due to the pressure we ended up playing really quick counter attacking hockey and we were more lethal in front of goal putting another 4 past their keeper. The only slip up was we didn’t end the game with a clean sheet. Well done on a great start and I hope we can keep this high intensity hockey up throughout the season.

The Under nine girls played 2 matches against St Marys in the Cargilfield Sports Hall.

Cargilfield A 5 St Mary’s 6.

The A team played first and it was obvious from very early on that it was going to be a very close game. Whilst St Mary’s were very quick to find spaces and also marked well, our attacking four of Savannah at centre, Aglaya at wing attack and Nadia and Isla as our shooting pair gelled together beautifully. Quick balls were provided and three goals resulted from excellent passing. Valentina and Beatrice worked very hard to defend our goal but St Marys were able to score three of their own.

In the second third we were not as good as our Goal Attack seemed to have run out of energy. Nadia persevered well however and scored a further goal. In the final third Isla and Bes swopped positions and we picked up our effort again. Unfortunately, St Mary’s managed to score one extra goal.  It was a very close game. We need to work on our defence in particular but also on ensuring we always give 100% effort.

Cargilfield B 0 St Mary’s 2.

The B team played against St Mary’s younger girls, with most of the girls playing their first competitive match. We tried hard to get into good spaces and to intercept the ball and we enjoyed the game very much. Bonnie made some good interceptions.  St Mary’s were good at intercepting and getting the ball and we do need to learn to be much stronger in defence. It was reasonably close however unfortunately, we did not give Jacqueline or Emilia many chances to shot- a shame as their accuracy had been great in the warm up. It was not a bad start however and we know what we need to work on to improve

What a delight it was to watch the U10A boys play such scintillating running rugby on what was a bitterly cold afternoon over at Myreside this afternoon. Rugby at this level is all about getting your hands on the ball, moving the ball away in to space, supporting the ball carrier, tackling low and running hard and fast......well, to be honest, that is rugby at any level!  However, the P5 SRU laws are all about keeping the game moving and despite the freezing conditions, the boys really did impress the shivering spectators with the brand of rugby they played.  It was tremendous to see everyone keeping their hands nice and high to look to get the ball away in the tackle, drawing the man unselfishly to put your tema mate away in to space as well as some quite wonderful individual pieces of skill as we scored some outstanding team tries during the game.  The GWC coach was full of compliments about the rugby we played, saying he had not seen a P5 team play so well - that is some compliment.  I was particularly pleased to see such strong defensive tackling, along the man low and putting him on the ground - there were some fierce hits and this disrupted the Watson's boys' play which was great to see. A win by 14 tries to 9.

We have SMC on Friday afternoon, and then we meet Watson's again later in the term, so lots to look forward to.  Well done, boys.  Keep working hard as a team, improving as a team and learning as a team.

W 12-1

On a blustery afternoon the boys started strongly by pouncing on an early mistake by Loretto to score a goal in the first minute of the match. Loretto came back and scored an equalizer from a 1 on 1 with the keeper – there was nothing Albie could do as he did everything right and slid out but was cleverly beaten by a lifted shot. From that moment, we dominated the game with some strong play. We looked a good team at moments, passing the ball well and putting team mates into space. We still played too much in the middle of the pitch and we will train on using triangle formation to get the ball out into the wider flanks. Using the back pass is also something we would do well to work on. Overall, though, a promising start. Well played boys.

Team 1: Won 5-0

Team 2: Won 4-2

Having only had three real training session before their first match of the season, the boys were just told to go out and enjoy themselves, and try to take on board the tips given to them during the matches. I thought that both teams played some really positive hockey and, even in their first match, showed themselves to be strong on the ball and in the tackle. They all adapted well to the tactics and advice given to them during the matches and this allowed them to stretch and pressure the opposition, ultimately allowing them to retrieve or keep the ball in each situation. Going forward, I would like them to work on the positioning in training next week, as at times we were getting in each other’s way to be the one on the ball.

Well done, boys!

The 3rd hockey team hosted Loretto in the first match of the season on a very windy and quite cold Wednesday afternoon.  Although the boys started off with admirable energy - making every effort to get stuck in on the field - they looked a little rusty and it took much of the first half to dust off the cobwebs and find their rhythm.  That said, they still ended the first half with a 2-0 lead.

In the second half, the boys began to pass more deliberately and the players who were off-the-ball began to move into space to support their team mates more effectively.  This resulted in some sublime passages of play and culminated in a couple of wonderfully worked goals, which involved most of the boys on the team.  There is still some work to do to ensure that the boys maintain this level consistently but they now know what they are capable of.

The final score was a 7-1 win.

It was an incredibly windy day for our first match. We had been training hard but were down a couple of players form our expected line up. A jiggle around of positions and “borrowing” both Hannah and Izzy from the first team to play at Centre for a half each brought us back up to a full team.

We took the first centre and quickly got the ball to our D. St Mary’s proved themselves to be strong in defence, their GD and GK working very well together. St Mary’s made a lot of loopy passes which allowed us to intercept. However, our footwork was not as tight as it might have been. Clara was particularly good at recognising this and jumping high to get the ball.  She was an excellent Captain today and certainly proved herself at WD today.

We went int to the second quarter evenly matched. Katinka was working her socks off at GD and Caitlin was giving it her best shot at GK although she was considerably shorter than the St Mary’s shooters. The wind was playing havoc with shooting at both ends however St Mary’s started to pull away. We were not marking very effectively at this point and by the end of this quarter they were 8 goals to 3 ahead.

In the third and fourth quarters Hannah excelled at Centre and managed to guide our team towards our shooting D. Josephine had success from 2 very difficult spots at the rear of the D. She also did very well as WA getting the ball up to Poppy. Poppy did well given the conditions with some super goals from closer in. However, in the last quarter St Mary’s pulled ahead again to a well-deserved victory.

Final score

St Mary’s 14, Cargilfield 5

The 3rd girls had a slightly easier match than the 1st girls today and did well to wait patiently until the second round of play before starting.  We were definitely the stronger of the teams throughout and we were spoilt by some great and consistent shooting from Emma who just could not miss the target!  She really was on form today and she scored 7 of our 9 goals.  We passed the ball particularly well in the centre area, and Bethany and Charlotte linked up well here.  Cicely was a steady as a rock in defence and the St Mary’s girls really struggled to get anything past her.  Captain Iona also played well today, and she was a strong WD, intercepting well and turning the play round.  We moved a few girls around a little at half time as the score was 8-1, and the match finished 9-3 to Cargilfield.  Well done girls; some really lovely netball today.

The 1st girls travelled to a blustery St Mary’s today for their first match of the season.  We took a while to settle and looked a little shell shocked in the first quarter.  The St Mary’s girls were definitely the stronger team in the first quarter and we did well to hang on in there.  

5-3 to St Mary’s after the first quarter

The play swung completely the other way in the second quarter and we dominated this period, with some great movement off the ball.  Saphira and Laura had their shooting hands on and scored 3 goals each.  Hannah moved well in the centre third and made some strong passes to Sophie and the shooting girls.  

9-9 at half time

There was a real buzz with the girls at this point and they could see that the match could really go either way.  Rosanna was outstanding in defence and intercepted many a pass, moving strongly and confidently on court. Flora also worked hard and linked well with her defence and attack.  The wind seemed to pick up a bit more during this quarter so scoring was even more difficult and both teams only managed 2 goals a piece.

11 all after the third quarter

The last quarter was always going to be a close one and both teams fought hard.  We had the majority of the play at our shooting end but the wind was really making life difficult for everyone.  Izzy and Sophie linked well and pushed the ball up, but the play was soon turned round.

The match finished 13-13 which was probably a fair reflection of the game.

Loretto towered over our U11B team in height today however we held our ground and despite a 13-2 loss, we produced some great passing sequences and worked well together. Our captain of the day, Bea was fiesty in midfield. Sophia and Famke were our solid GK and GD throughout the game, always sticking to their players. Up front, Amenah and Mariella moved well and got in space to shoot. The first 3 quarters were pretty much one-way traffic, however, the girls remained positive throughout and in the final quarter we really stepped up our game, showing some great energy in our play and Mariella scored our 2 goals.

The U11As faced St Mary’s in their first game of the season today. It was clear from the outset that it would be a close game. Captain Lottie and Anna worked well together mid-court, giving our rotating shooters, consisting of Judith, Tunrayo and Esme, opportunities up-front. St Mary’s passed the ball quickly and we sometimes lost our marking. The first 3 quarters were very close, with some brilliant defence, particularly from Venetia and Annika, however St Mary’s pulled away in the final quarter, leaving the final score 8-5 to them. This was a promising start, with some lovely passages of play. An aim for next week is to utilise the space available more.

On the first weekend of term, the Form 4’s bustled in for their exciting Scottish History boarding weekend. For a number of the children it was their first boarding experience and what a successful time they had. As well as all the activities and fun, they now know they can sleep away from home without a fuss and can get by organising themselves, which gives them a lot of self confidence and independence. 

The weather on Saturday restricted our outdoor plans in the morning but there were a lot of inventive Scottish-themed activities put on. In the afternoon, we tried our hand at putting at the Volcano Falls Adventure Golf in Fountain Park. On Sunday we went across to Coatbridge and spent a couple of hours charging around the Water Park, Time Capsule. In the afternoon before pick up, the children rotated between Scottish baking, storytelling and Celtic crafts. It was a very successful weekend and my thanks go to all the staff whose patience and kindness made for such an enjoyable couple of days. Particular thanks to the new Gap Students who were completely unfazed by being jumped upon, dunked and ridden like dolphins at the swimming pool.

It was a very cold and blustery afternoon for the first match of the season on the small astro. The girls played really well despite the conditions and worked very well as a team. Cargilfield led in the first quarter with 3 goals from Issy and Lucy. St Marys came back to score 2 in this quarter. Over the next 2 quarters Cargilfield struggled to get the ball in their scoring third and St Mary’s scored another 6 goals. In a final quarter fight back, the girls worked really well to win the ball and dominated the play. With several attempts on goal, the wind seemed to play a big part in preventing the ball going through the net! It was blowing about everywhere!! However, there were a further 2 goals scored. A super effort all round and some great potential on show. This should bode well for the rest of the season. 

Final score St Mary’s 8, Cargilfield 5

Well done St Mary’s for some super play. We really enjoyed our afternoon.

It is heartening to see four of our boys in the new Grange CC Cricket Academy for 2020, with Edward, Rory, Harry and James all attending weekly sessions under the expert guidance of Academy Director, John Blain.  As well as focusing on cricketing skills, they also look at player choices and lifestyles, so focusing on the player and the choices they make on and off the field.  Good luck, boys!

Cargilfield has a strong cricket culture, with cricket played all year round, 12 months a year; we have a developing girls' cricket programme and were delighted to be chosen as one of the Top 50 Prep Schools in the UK in the recent Cricketer Magazine Schools' Guide 2020.  We are the only Prep School in Scotland listed, and it is terrific to see our cricket recognised in this wey.  We look forward to some sunshine when we get outside in the summer!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mrs Sue Bailiie, Head at Queen Margaret's, York, to preach in Chapel on Tuesday. Over the years, a number of children have gone on to QM from Cargilfield and we were delighted to see her up here in Scotland.


She spoke to us about the importance of building friendships and relationships in our daily lives. Talking about the importance of small ingredients and getting the mixture right when baking in the kitchen, if we do small acts of kindness and keep persevering, friendships will flourish and blossom. We need to find time to build friendships and not give up when things get difficult.

Thank you also to the Chapel Choir who performed a beautiful anthem in their first performance of the new term.

Oh no! He is on about his maps again….

Following on from the success of using Digital Maps in the classroom last year, the website took off and has become so much more! 

The project has evolved into a crusade to broaden my pupils’ understanding of the Ancient World; from learning about Greek myths, dabbling in some Egyptian Hieroglyphs or finding a new book to read. 

As we know, the Common Entrance and Scholarship syllabi are grammar orientated but do provide wonderful and fascinating stories for the candidates to translate based on Greek mythology or historical events from the Roman Empire. By having a good understanding of these myths and historical events, the candidates will find tricky translations much easier and less likely to panic or give up by knowing the story behind it.

The Greek Mythology section has detailed accounts of the major gods and goddesses and the myths that surround them, which is a good starting point for anyone interested in the Ancient World.

This can also be combined with the Recommended Reading, which provides pupils with an extended reading list of books based of Greek Mythology and the Roman Empire, combining a passion for reading and learning. Other recommendations include TV & Film and Video Games.

rightColBody

Pupils can also access all of the resources that they will need for Common Entrance in the Languages section under Latin and Ancient Greek, as well as the Revision section of the School website.

The use of social media has also be implemented in conjunction with the website to promote the resources available to a wider audience in general and of School Classics departments. It has been a useful tool to network with other Classics teachers from the UK and abroad to share ideas and resources for the betterment of our students. It has also been useful CPD; engaging with Academics and Authors on their work for a better understanding of Ancient History and Classics.

This is all accessible on the website: www.digitalmapsoftheancientworld.com so that pupils can explore in their own time.

Pupils can also access all of the resources that they will need for Common Entrance in the Languages section under Latin and Ancient Greek, as well as the Revision section of the School website.

The use of social media has also be implemented in conjunction with the website to promote the resources available to a wider audience in general and of School Classics departments. It has been a useful tool to network with other Classics teachers from the UK and abroad to share ideas and resources for the betterment of our students. It has also been useful CPD; engaging with Academics and Authors on their work for a better understanding of Ancient History and Classics.

This is all accessible on the website: www.digitalmapsoftheancientworld.com so that pupils can explore in their own time.

Oh no! He is on about his maps again….

Following on from the success of using Digital Maps in the classroom last year, the website took off and has become so much more! 

The project has evolved into a crusade to broaden my pupils’ understanding of the Ancient World; from learning about Greek myths, dabbling in some Egyptian Hieroglyphs or finding a new book to read. 

As we know, the Common Entrance and Scholarship syllabi are grammar orientated but do provide wonderful and fascinating stories for the candidates to translate based on Greek mythology or historical events from the Roman Empire. By having a good understanding of these myths and historical events, the candidates will find tricky translations much easier and less likely to panic or give up by knowing the story behind it.

The Greek Mythology section has detailed accounts of the major gods and goddesses and the myths that surround them, which is a good starting point for anyone interested in the Ancient World.

This can also be combined with the Recommended Reading, which provides pupils with an extended reading list of books based of Greek Mythology and the Roman Empire, combining a passion for reading and learning. Other recommendations include TV & Film and Video Games.

Today Donald a zoologist from Wildside Nature came to Nursery to teach us about polar animals. We learnt all about the Polar Regions and saw some fascinating photographs from Donald’s adventures. We worked in small groups, handling and investigating a huge variety of bones and skulls from many different species and discovered so many interesting facts. We worked together to try and stay warm by huddling together like penguins and carried out a penguin parade, pretending to slide across the ice and catch fish. What an interesting morning we had!

The first of our weekly voluntary reeling sessions took place on Thursday evening, with 60 children arriving after supper to practise their reeling under the expert guidance of Mr Hunt and Mrs Fox, before heading off to their normal clubs at 7pm. 

It was a terrific session with all the children full of enthusiasm, enjoying learning some reels and it was lovely that some members of staff came along to join in the fun too! Roll on next week!

It was a pleasure to welcome Cargilfield parent, Graham Moodie, to deliver a hockey coaching session for the staff before the start of term during the January INSET. He talked more generally about positive coaching behaviours and his coaching philosophies which gave us all food for thought, and ideas for us to take away in all our sports coaching.

Graham is the Assistant Coach to the Scotland Men's team, coaches the BG Hockey U21s and is Head Coach of the Edinburgh University Mean's 1stXI.

It was a pleasure to welcome Cargilfield parent, Graham Moodie, to deliver a hockey coaching session for the staff before the start of term during the January INSET. He talked more generally about positive coaching behaviours and his coaching philosophies which gave us all food for thought, and ideas for us to take away in all our sports coaching.

Graham is the Assistant Coach to the Scotland Men's team, coaches the BG Hockey U21s and is Head Coach of the Edinburgh University Mean's 1stXI.

Why do we have to go to chapel if we’re not religious?

A comment I have heard many a time.  On the face of it, one could simply agree.  However, going to chapel is so much more than a place of prayer and worship.  It is a coming together of a community to be in a place of calm where one can reflect and have some time to think.  Yes, in our morning chapel time we have a reading and a prayer but one can take out of that what they wish.  The readings are often based around a story that has a moral, and whether the listener is religious or not, I would like to think they would aspire to be a moral and sensitive-to-others kind of person.  

But as I have said, going to chapel is so much more.  On a practical note, messages and announcements are made, it is a place to celebrate achievements, listen to musical treats of all kinds, from classical to pop, organs to rock guitars and drums, not to mention the fantastic plays that are put on regularly; and all in the beautiful and historic surroundings, complete with roaring fires and a beautiful Christmas tree in December.

Finally, why else do we go to chapel?  Because to do so reminds us of all those who braved the wars and fought for our country and freedom.  It is a poignant reminder of what we have now and to appreciate the goodness in our lives.  So, if your child isn’t religious but finds themselves still at chapel, please encourage them take in the surroundings and value what they have.
