On Thursday P1 set off on their first field trip of the year on a Cargilfield minibus – what excitement for a ten minute drive! Once at Cammo we spent the morning climbing on logs, tree stumps, fallen branches and rocks to collect leaves, twigs, pebbles, flowers and other natural treasures. We then used these to create a piece of environmental art in the style of Andy Goldsworthy, one of the artists we have been looking at in this half of term. The children had great fun and the general public we met were delighted to see the youngsters out and about in the community.

As part of our Pirate topic, P3 were treated to a fantastic presentation all about Alice’s ancestor Admiral John Benbow. Admiral Benbow was a privateer and part of the Royal Navy at different times during his career. A wonderful story and fascinating for the children in P3 to hear all about it!  A big thank you to Alice’s Dad for a fascinating talk.

The mighty Under 9 cricket squad returned to action today against a strong Merchiston team. Cargilfield started strongly, due to fine batting performances from Arthur, James M, Caspian, James S, Edward and Jamie who scored 98 runs without loss during the first six overs. Fionn, Leo, Michael, Theo, Oliver and Toby then added a further 52 runs for the loss of just two wickets, setting Merchiston the target of 151 to win. From the moment Caspian and then Edward steamed down the bowling crease at break neck speed it became clear that Merchiston would find it difficult to reach such a daunting total. Backed up by some excellent bowling from the rest of the team and some intelligent captaincy from Edward, Merchiston battled hard but were only able to reach a total of 75 runs, making Cargilfield comfortable and well deserved winners.

imageAltCargilfield
leftColBody

In between heavy downpours of rain, we luckily hit upon some warm, dry weather to play an enjoyable, competitive game of soft ball cricket. Cargilfield batted first and despite quite a few wickets (which count for -5 in this format), we scored some good runs from some solid hits. Albie swung majestically and smashed some magnificent leg shots and Austin also looked confident with the bat. Matthew called expertly with Diederik and avoided some would-be runouts well. After our innings we scored 134.

While the Merchiston boys batted, our fielding was excellent. Everyone encouraged each other and there was a positive atmosphere on the field. Adam took a great catch, as did James. Angus was bowler of the day with some lovely left-arm medium pace bowling. Duncan bowled a lofty, steady length and Max looked to be moving the ball with some clever spin. The Merchiston boys managed some good hits and scored 167.

Regardless of the result, this was a vey enjoyable afternoon with a delightful, polite and fun group of boys; even being stuck on the bypass for an hour and a half was made bearable with this tremendous bunch of young men!

The under 9 girls were so excited to play their first fixture since the beginning of lockdown. Our captain Emily won the toss and chose to field first. Belhaven began batting with some confidence scoring regular half rounders and a super rounder from Isabella after a very strong hit. Cargilfield were a little nervous, dropping balls and giving away half rounders for obstructions. However, Marianna did manage to get two hesitant runners out at first post. Belhaven managed to score 4 and a half rounders off 15 balls. Cargilfield went in to bat but unfortunately very few of the girls managed to hit the ball so there was little opportunity to score. Emily was caught out on one of the few hits and we only achieved 2 rounders.

In the second innings Cargilfield looked sharper. Wendy scored a super rounder for Belhaven but was later caught out by Emily, revenge for Emily’s earlier catch.  We held Belhaven to 1 ½ rounders. We went into bat needing 5 rounders to win. Athena got us off to a flying start with a superb hit and a fast run round. This seemed to life the girls and several rounders and half rounders followed. We achieved a much-improved total of 6 ½ rounders bringing our total to 8 ½ rounders. Athena was player of the match with 4 rounders.

Final score Cargilfield 8 ½  : Belhaven 6 ½ P 

Well done on this first match girls! We do need to work hard on our striking off the ball but we all tried hard and we had fun!

The Form 8 A Team played Merchiston 1stXI and managed to dodge the showers and got a game in before the heavens opened at 4.15pm as we were jumping on the bus to head home!  We only had nine players and half the 1stXI team who played on Saturday against the Grange were unable to play whilst our hosts put out their very best side, so we would be in for a battle.

We decided to play a 100 ball game, a new format of cricket which is about to start in earnest down in England and will be broadcast on the BBC, so it should attract a wide following. 10 ten ball overs, everyone bowling one over and two bowling a second.  It turned out to be a terrific format which both teams enjoyed and is one we shall repeat, especially when pushed for time, trying to avoid the rain and when there is not enough time to play a 25 over game.

We bowled first, and generally, we bowled a pretty good line, although we found wickets hard to come by.  They scored 116-4 in their 100 balls and what was disappointing was that some poor fielding gifted Merchiston at least 20 runs by conceding  a number of feeble boundaries; putting your body on the line rather than watching the ball run past you is important and I was really upset that one or two of us did not reach the required standard in the field for playing at this level.

In reply, the soft and unpredictable bounce of the wet pitch caused problems.  Oliver and Rory fell cheaply and it did not look as though we would get anywhere near our target; however, in cam Glen, and although he struggled at the start of his innings to get used to the conditions, he played a fabulous innings, full of swashbuckling shots all around the wicket, but proper cricket shots and suddenly we were right back in the game, needing 50 runs off 40 balls. It couldn’t happen, could it? Sadly, Glen was caught after scoring an excellent 36 and then we found scoring more difficult and ended up 20 runs short of our required target. Those fielding mishaps the difference. Pure and simple  

When our Form 8 team loses to Merchiston’s 1stXI, there is no shame in that.  Our 1stXI would be more than a match for them and I would certainly fancy our chances with our very strong bowling line up and much stronger batting team, but we are where we are and today it was our F8 team who had to do battle.  We did not bowl in the right areas to their key batsman, we also dropped him and our fielding left much to be desired if truth be told - that was the difference and a reminder as to how important fielding is.  Some valuable and important lessons learned, but at least we got a game in, we played some cricket and I certainly enjoyed the new format, which is coming to your screens on the BBC later this summer.

As this was the first Cargilfield fixture for these girls in well over a year, you can imagine there was much excitement as we boarded the bus and headed for the short journey to ESMS at Ravelston.

The girls were split into two 8 a side teams for a game of softball pairs with both teams starting on 200 runs.

The A team lost the toss and were put into field first.  The girls bowled incredibly well with the pick of the bunch being Esme who took a hat trick in her first over!  Our fielding at first was a little sloppy as we got used to the bounce of the ball on the astroturf surface but after a few mis-fields, the girls soon got into it.  Lottie stopped many boundaries by fielding bravely and Lucy and Annika took two terrific catches.  Further wickets fell through the bowling of Lucy, Isabella, Judith and Mariella with the final ball of the innings, leaving Mary Erskine with 209 runs.

With the bat, all of the girls played with a sense of freedom and let the bat swing, playing some fierce shots scoring lots of boundaries.  Top scorers were Isabella and Mariella with 16 each but nearly all of the girls scored in the teens.  We only lost 3 wickets in total and therefore came out on top with a tremendous score of 124.  Player of the match goes to Esme for her 4 wickets, including the hat trick and for scoring a solid 12 runs from 11 balls.

Bea captained the B team and opened the batting with Lily.  The pair got off to a positive start with a partnership of 16, and they particularly impressed with their running between the wickets, even running 4 on one delivery. Next in were Emilia and Lyla who were the pick of the batters, with Lyla contributing 3 boundaries through some powerful leg-side hitting; Emilia also played a beautiful straight drive for 4 as they made 24 off their 2 overs. The tail of the innings was very competent and careful, with just one wicket lost and boundaries for Sophia, Amenah, Lara, and Amalia. This left us with a very impressive total of 68 runs from the 8 overs.

However, where the girls really shone was in the field. They began strong with a run out by Lily in the first over, her first of 3 which were all amazing pieces of fielding, direct hits from midwicket. Lily was definitely the player of the match as she also got a wicket with her bowling, crashing the ball straight into middle stump. The excellent fielding continued with Amenah creating a run out and Lyla taking a superb catch off her own bowling, giving her a phenomenal wicket maiden and an incredibly strong overall performance. Lara was able to finish it off with a clean bowled off the last over, holding MES to just 13 runs.

Overall, there were outstanding performances  from all the girls, who have lots to be proud of.  It was lovely to be out playing in matches again and thankfully we avoided the rain and the traffic back!  Well done to all the girls on their play and enthusiasm throughout the afternoon.

Last week 13 children from Form 5 to Form 8 took Music Theory exams in school and now we are enjoying getting back to some more practical learning.  This week the focus has been on understanding rhythms in compound time for most of the groups and the Form 5 theorists did particularly well with creating and clapping rhythms using dots to represent the beats of the bar.

Today Form Five attended a presentation and a questions and answer session with Derek Harris from the Edinburgh based space company Skyrora.  

This was part of the Glasgow Science Centre’s Curious about Innovation programme. 

Skyrora's aim is to be the leading UK launch vehicle provider into space and to become the number one commercial provider of access to space in the UK. Skyrora are 

developing innovative technologies all with environmental priority. This includes an RP-1 rocket fuel equivalent known as Ecosene made from unrecyclable plastic waste and Skyrora's Space Tug which will remove space debris and defunct satellites from orbit. The children asked lots of great questions. Thanks to Mr Tinkler for handling the chat function.

It’s been a while! 696 days since our last match, the 1stXI played again; it was so good to get back playing a match, and in the glorious setting of Grange Cricket Club on Saturday morning. Fielding first, we bowled and fielded really well considering it was our first game for a long time and we had the whole side representing the 1stXI for the first time. We bowled very consistent line and lengths throughout their innings and the fielding was pretty sharp with three excellent run outs and some catches. Charles was the pick of the nine bowlers, picking up three well deserved wickets, as we restricted Grange to 115-8 in their 25 overs.  It was good to see us keep concentrating throughout the 25 overs as well encouraging and supporting each other throughout  

In reply, we batted with real purpose, running well between the wickets and Rory and Ollie set the foundations for our reply with a very good partnership for the 2nd wicket which put us in the driving position. Rory was retired at 30 but it was left to Harry and good support from Cody, to comfortably see us home in the penultimate over and a six wicket win  

A great way to begin the season; very well played indeed, boys!

Form 4 have been learning about special places in their RS lessons.  Having explored churches last week, today involved a look at Jewish syngogues.  We looked at certain items often associated with synagogues, such as the Torah holy book and its mantel, but also what was often worn by Jews.  The children enjoyed trying on the kippah skull-cap and the tallith shawl, to make it all the more real.

In blustery, chilly conditions, the girls weren’t put off by the weather and they enjoyed a really fun and exciting game of soft ball cricket against the welcoming girls of Mary Erskine. Both teams showed a lot of promise and, most importantly, enjoyment of the sport and a good afternoon was had by all. The Mary Erskine girls batted first and managed to hit some good shots. The bowling from Cargilfield was accurate and a few wickets were taken. Catch of the day from Julia who took a high ball that looked like it may go right over her head but she managed to reach just high enough for it. After their two overs each pair, the Mary Erskine girls hit 13 runs. The Cargilfield innings didn’t start that well as Sav and Julia were out for both of the first two balls. They recovered well though and hit some good shots. Lucy and Izzy managed to pile on a lot of runs, both hitting some strong boundaries. Beth and Anne also looked very strong with the bat. Hattie and Rowan did very well and their communication really improved over the game. Jess and Natasha batted well together, hitting some good shots and not giving away any wickets. After their two overs each, the Cargilfield girls managed to score 49 runs.

Last weekend, a group of 8 Form 7 pupils ventured out to the Pentland Hills to complete the training for their NNAS Bronze Navigator Award. Over the weekend, they developed the skills to orientate the map using ground features and a compass, estimate distance using both timing and pacing, and recognise contour features, alongside learning about the Scottish Outdoor Access Code and emergency procedures. On Tuesday, following the completion of a theory paper, the pupils went back out into the Pentlands for their practical assessment. Congratulations to all those who passed!

On a cold and blustery day our U11 cricket team took the short trip across town to play ESMS. Captain Athena won the toss and elected to bat. Opening the batting she and Izzy put on a solid 14 off the first two overs. Tessa and Dulcie who had pestered the coach into batting together followed and to their credit proceeded to crash the ESMS attack to all parts. Dulcie finishing on 13* from 7 balls. Our powerful middle order followed with Scarlett, Bella, Miranda and Tunrayo all reaching double figures and setting ESMS 56 to win off their 10 overs.

Izzy opened the bowling and contained the ESMS openers nicely. She worked nicely in tandem with Nadia who squeezed the ESMS middle order conceding only 3 runs from her afternoon’s work. Scarlett and Bella came on to finish off the ESMS at the death and contributed to a narrow win for the Cargilfield outfit. A great afternoon of cricket and Bella and Scarlett deservedly shared the player of the match title for their powerful hitting, fielding and bowling. Well done girls!

At last, a cricket match. Over 700 days since the 1stXI last played back in June 2019, and we welcomed Merchiston who came over for a Form 7 pairs cricket match. The weather played ball and the sun shone and it was lovely to hear the sound of leather against will at long last!

We batted first, and everyone bowled two overs and everyone bowled really well showing how hard they had worked in the nets. Charlie, James, Xander and Alexander were probably the pick of the bowlers, but they were backed up with some pretty good fielding although we dropped a few catches and missed one or two runs outs. That said, we took ten wickets which meant they lost 50 runs. Valuing your wicket is so important and Merchiston would come to rue some injudicious shots and running between wickets at the end of the game.  They scored 133 runs in their 24 overs, which set us a target of 83 runs to win the game.

Cody and Thomas got us off to a good start with 21 runs in their 4 overs without losing a wicket; Milo and Ewan scored 25 getting out just once; Charlie and Oliver scored 23 getting out once and then Xander and James and James and Charlie batted really well for the final 8 overs.  They were up against some accurate and fast Merchiston bowling, and without any fuss or drama, picked off the singles, punished the bad balls and we ended up winning by a comfortable 9 runs. 

All in all, a very promising performance and after such a long time without playing a cricket match, I was pleased how we slowly adapted to how to play the game, how to concentrate for long periods in the field and how sensibly we batted, valuing our wicket and being patient.  Cricket is a game that tests you mentally, that battle of bat against ball, a determination to occupy the crease and play each ball on its merit….it takes time to get back in to this way of thinking but some important first steps were made today.

Well played, boys. A very encouraging performance.

On an afternoon at Cargilfield where the sun came and went, Harry captained the boys in an impressive first outing in nearly 2 years. Merchiston won the toss and elected to bat and began strong with an opening partnership of 34 runs, however a few wickets allowed us to get back in the game. Harry took a nice catch off his own bowling and then next over Cameron took the bails off with a lovely delivery. We also took advantage in the field with 3 run outs, by Leo, Arthur and Otis. However, the opposition did not lose hope and some excellent late bowling, which included Zain taking a wicket and the pick of the bowlers Oscar taking a superb catch into the sun from his own bowling, could not prevent Merchiston from reaching an impressive total of 115 off their 24 overs.

When we came into bat there were many impressive shots played, Leo hit an exquisite 1 bounce 4 at the square leg boundary and Otis played a couple excellent pull shots for 4. Cameron was the highest scoring batsman with 19 runs from his time at the crease, including 3 boundaries. Otis and Theo both also made double figures. However unfortunately it was not to be our day as a late innings collapse gave Merchiston a 22-run victory.

Overall everyone who took part should be very pleased with their performances, and look forward to the next match with lots of positives, as well as one or two areas of improvement.

As part of their PSHE lessons, the Form 5s have started to learn about different cultures across the world, with a focus on Tunisia.  They learnt a little about Tunisian history and its influence from the Romans, Ottoman Empire and France, as well as listening to some traditional music played on a 'mezwed' (North African bagpipes) and a zokra (oboe-type instrument).  They also found out what harissa was (hot chilli sauce) and some of the traditional dress.  A few members even got to try on a kafia, the North African head covering.  The world is their oyster!

What a lovely afternoon for some Form 5 children to head off to Merchiston for some softball pairs cricket. 
We batted first and Monty and Dexter got us going with some fine batting displays and sensible running.  Although Archie played some nice shots during his innings, shot of the day went to Jonah with a lovely cover drive to the boundary for 4 runs.  We did gift Merchiston some wickets with some excitable running between the stumps but closed with a solid 42 runs.  

Our bowling was very strong with Wilfred opening and showing how dangerous he can be.  In their first game of cricket, Isla G, Beatrice and Emilia bowled particularly well, but Theo was deadly with his first over, taking 3 wickets and leaving Merchiston with an uphill challenge.  We had a few opportunities to take some catches with some going down due to the sun awkwardly being in the way; however, Harry took a superb one in his fingertips and then in the final over when Merchiston had clawed their way back into contention after some fine batting in the penultimate over, Harry was on hand again to take a wicket from Theo's delivery to ensure the victory was Cargilfield's. 

It was an incredibly exciting match and everyone learned a great deal.  Whatever the result, it was just great to be back out and playing a fixture against another side and we thank Merchiston for hosting us and making it possible. [

Our U10B team playing their first competitive cricket fixture for the school headed across town to play Merchiston on a glorious early summer day. Captain for the day, Mack lost the toss and Cargilfield were put into bat on a green wicket.


Mack and Isla opened the batting, but after some positive stroke play were undone by a lack of communication that resulted in a couple of run outs. Nancy and Alexander came out and proved to be a calming influence with Alex the aggressor taking the initiative with some positive stroke play. Nancy was watchful, but accelerated towards the end of the innings pushing the Cargilfield score in the right direction. More good batting followed from George, Valentina, Alexander, Charles, Rafa and Senuka, all of whom played some terrific shots, but the constant stream of wickets was beginning to dent Cargilfield’s progress. A flurry of late order runs got the team up to a respectable 164.

Nancy opened the bowling and in tandem with Charles, kept the opening Merchiston openers scoring under control. After they had seen off the new ball, the Merchiston middle order began to dominate and started to build a partnership that would see it very difficult for Cargilfield to recover. Credit must be given to the bowlers for continuing to apply pressure, Rafa the pick of the bowlers with figures of 1-4 from his spell. This was the difference between the teams, Cargilfield lost 45 runs through wickets and this is an area we will continue to work on as a group moving forward. A brilliant day out and the Cargilfield unit will be back and looking to improve on our next outing. Well done!

 It was a lovely warm day for our first match and there was a real sense of excitement in the bus as we headed off to Belhaven. We were a bit rusty with our match protocols and had forgotten skorts, bats and balls but that didn’t seem to matter today.

The Belhaven girls were very welcoming and we all enjoyed being able to play again and being out in the fresh air on a sunny day. We won the toss and chose to field first. Belhaven were understandably a bit tentative and it took a few balls for them to get into their stride scoring on ball 10. Our fielding needed some work, particularly our tendency to follow the batter with the ball rather than throwing ahead to the next post.  Matilda was really steady at bowler and threw hardly any no balls.  Our close in fielding was also good but we need to work more on our accuracy and long range throws form the outfield. Luckily there weren’t too many outfield balls today!

When it was our turn to bat we exploited a  few weaknesses in the fielding to clock up a healthy number of rounders and half rounders ending the innings 13 rounders ahead.

Belhaven played a much more impressive game in the second innings. Their fielding was much tighter around 2ndbase and it was much harder for us to score. Valentina led the team very well and was also our top scorer with 4 rounders.

Final score Cargilfield 24, Belhaven 7 1/2

Nursery have been learning all about Edinburgh. They have created maps, sightseeing brochures and learnt some very interesting facts about our fabulous city. Today they went on a magical mystery sightseeing tour around Edinburgh. They spotted the famous sights that they had been learning about and even learnt some new facts from our tour guides.

On Wednesday 12th May, with a fortunate break in rain, the Form 4s walked the short trip to Cramond Kirk, where they were greeted by the Rev. Ian Gilmour.  He began by talking about the graveyards and the Roman history of Cramond, showing us the ruins of the fort.  He then pointed out the sundial that is located on the side of the kirk before taking us inside.  He asked the Forms 4s to spot the differences between their houses and this kirk, being the house of God; there were quite a few!  He talked about the pews, the altar, the stained glass windows (and their depictions of the saints) as well as the pulpit and how it was used to teach the congregation about the messages from the Bible.  They also completed an acrostic poem of "CRAMOND" and found out that Cramond comes from the Welsh "Caer Amon"!  An interesting insight into the local history so thank you, Rev. Gilmour!

On Wednesday 12th May, with a fortunate break in rain, the Form 4s walked the short trip to Cramond Kirk, where they were greeted by the Rev. Ian Gilmour.  He began by talking about the graveyards and the Roman history of Cramond, showing us the ruins of the fort.  He then pointed out the sundial that is located on the side of the kirk before taking us inside.  He asked the Forms 4s to spot the differences between their houses and this kirk, being the house of God; there were quite a few!  He talked about the pews, the altar, the stained glass windows (and their depictions of the saints) as well as the pulpit and how it was used to teach the congregation about the messages from the Bible.  They also completed an acrostic poem of "CRAMOND" and found out that Cramond comes from the Welsh "Caer Amon"!  An interesting insight into the local history so thank you, Rev. Gilmour!

Nursery have been learning all about Edinburgh. They have created maps, sightseeing brochures and learnt some very interesting facts about our fabulous city. Today they went on a magical mystery sightseeing tour around Edinburgh. They spotted the famous sights that they had been learning about and even learnt some new facts from our tour guides.

Form 4 have timetabled weekly chess lessons with Andrew Green of Edinburgh Chess Academy and these have continued remotely despite COVID restrictions. He is keen for all schools across Scotland to follow our lead, and we are delighted that he enthuses and inspires our young chess players every week!

Please see the article in today's edition of The Times  


Cargilfield Prep moves to put chess on the curriculum

https://www.thetimes.co.uk/art...



A private school has become the first in Scotland to add chess to its curriculum.

Pupils at Cargilfield Preparatory School, in Cramond, Edinburgh, are competing in tournaments and one child now plays chess for Scotland.

Andrew Green, who is one of the country’s leading players and coaches the pupils, is campaigning for the Scottish government to add the game to the school curriculum.

He teaches chess in 11 state schools and six independent schools in Edinburgh. He said that pupils were eager to learn and that the game needed to be taught and was easily accessible online.

The campaign has received the backing of Gareth Williams, the co-founder of the Edinburgh-based Skyscanner travel website, who is committed to raising the profile of the game.

Chess is not classified as a sport in Scotland but 24 of 27 European Union member states list it as an official sport and provide public funding to teach it in schools.

The popularity of chess with young people has been growing steadily, fuelling by the Netflix series The Queen’s Gambit, about a female chess prodigy.

“Most European countries receive public funding for chess in schools and follow a curriculum, with the benefits of the game to kids well proven,” Green said. “Research points to the educational benefits of chess, including around cognitive and emotional skills, mathematics and problem-solving.

“As a country, I think we’re missing a trick here. Chess is increasingly played in an online environment without language barriers, so it’s never been easier or cheaper to get into the game.”

He said that the next step should be to scale up what had been achieved in Edinburgh. He added: “Chess needs to be taught. There needs to be structured teaching and competitions for kids to enter. Having a few chess boards hanging about won’t get results. You don’t just give a child a guitar and expect them to play; the same applies to chess.”

Green has said there is the same appetite for learning the game in state schools as in private schools.

“There is this misconception that chess is confined to private schools, and I think we need to get away from that,” he added. “Before lockdown, I was teaching in state schools and the children in each school loved it.”

Ross Murdoch, deputy head of Cargilfield, said: “Andrew’s arrival at the school to help drive the inclusion of chess in our Form 4 curriculum has really taken our children to the next level with some representing the school at chess tournaments in Edinburgh and one making the national team . . .

“Andrew has been delighted to dial in during remote learning and since being back at school, which has allowed the children to continue to develop their knowledge and ability of the game.”

With cricket restarting, it was lovely to see so many former pupils in this year's Fettes U14A cricket team.  Captained by Edward who took a hat trick in their opening game of the season against GWC this week, the team also contains Ollie, Max, Jack, Adley, Joshua, Seb and Leo. Fingers crossed that the sun shines and we get plenty more cricket in after so long without any!

On a bright and breezy day our U11B mixed cricket team excitedly made their return to school fixtures with a cross town trip to Colinton to play Merchiston Castle. Daniel won the toss and elected to field, opting to back his bowlers on a green surface. Our opening attack of Kit and Izzy worked beautifully in tandem, with Kit removing their opener after consistent bowling from his partner. After this early success Merchiston rallied and picked up the pace of their innings, scoring freely and were looking to build a big score. That was until the skipper, rather like Joe Root in India, brought himself into the attack and began to make things happen. An economical first three balls built some pressure, and with his next ball debutant Rufus took a blinding catch to make the break through. This galvanised the Cargilfield bowlers with Miranda, Bella and Orhan all contributing well with the ball, keeping the scoring to a minimum. Death bowling is an art, thankfully our artists came in the form of Kit and Jess, both bowled magnificently with the latter taking a wicket maiden to restrict Merchiston to 154.

There is no doubt Cargilfield brought the momentum and confidence from the field into their batting. Archie (18) and Jess (10) opened up and they got the team off to a flyer, like Roy and Bairstow they complimented each other superbly and scored 28 off three overs. More good batting followed with some excellent running between the wickets from Kit and Izzy. Orhan and Rufus entered the fray with broad smiles, powerful stroke play and an ability to put the fielders under pressure with their running. Bella and Miranda faced the best of the Merchiston attack and picked off singles nicely, showing a real maturity and calmness to their batting. With victory in touching distance, the skipper steadily approached the winning target and Paddy played a couple of flamboyant strokes to bring the side home.

A brilliant result, with Jessica winning Player of the Match for her all-round effort with bat and ball. However, the team performance was most pleasing, with constant encouragement and a real sense of fun, you can all be very proud.

On a bright and breezy day our U11B mixed cricket team excitedly made their return to school fixtures with a cross town trip to Colinton to play Merchiston Castle. Daniel won the toss and elected to field, opting to back his bowlers on a green surface. Our opening attack of Kit and Izzy worked beautifully in tandem, with Kit removing their opener after consistent bowling from his partner. After this early success Merchiston rallied and picked up the pace of their innings, scoring freely and were looking to build a big score. That was until the skipper, rather like Joe Root in India, brought himself into the attack and began to make things happen. An economical first three balls built some pressure, and with his next ball debutant Rufus took a blinding catch to make the break through. This galvanised the Cargilfield bowlers with Miranda, Bella and Orhan all contributing well with the ball, keeping the scoring to a minimum. Death bowling is an art, thankfully our artists came in the form of Kit and Jess, both bowled magnificently with the latter taking a wicket maiden to restrict Merchiston to 154.

There is no doubt Cargilfield brought the momentum and confidence from the field into their batting. Archie (18) and Jess (10) opened up and they got the team off to a flyer, like Roy and Bairstow they complimented each other superbly and scored 28 off three overs. More good batting followed with some excellent running between the wickets from Kit and Izzy. Orhan and Rufus entered the fray with broad smiles, powerful stroke play and an ability to put the fielders under pressure with their running. Bella and Miranda faced the best of the Merchiston attack and picked off singles nicely, showing a real maturity and calmness to their batting. With victory in touching distance, the skipper steadily approached the winning target and Paddy played a couple of flamboyant strokes to bring the side home.

A brilliant result, with Jessica winning Player of the Match for her all-round effort with bat and ball. However, the team performance was most pleasing, with constant encouragement and a real sense of fun, you can all be very proud.

Form 6 A Cricket v Merchiston Tuesday 11th May 2021

A group of Form 6 girls and boys excitedly head across to Merchiston for a game of cricket. In warm sunshine, we batted first and did well against some talented bowlers. Izzy and Tom hit the most runs with 15 from their 4 overs. We gave off a few catches unfortunately, which counted for -5 runs in this format. Scarlett and Maddie batted well, hitting some great shots and calling well to each other. In total, we scored 37 runs.

The Merchiston boys faced some ferocious bowling from our girls and boys and everybody showed technique and enthusiasm during their 2 overs. Tunrayo bowled a wicket maiden for the final over of the match! Slyvan caught a terrific catch deep in the covers and Felix managed a smart run-out. Lucy made some brave stops and threw well to Conrad at wickey. Freddie was fielder of the day, with some amazing stops. In total, the Merchi boys scored 82 runs.

It was fantastic to be able to take some of our cross country runners to Belhaven today for the annual cross country event.  This event is usually run earlier in the year however it was postponed to today, and it was great for once to attend the event and be able to feel my fingers at the end!

Numbers were depleted due to COVID restrictions, however our athletes were raring to go and enjoyed an afternoon of super traditional cross country racing.  As always, the course provides undulating terrain, through woods and open areas, on both sand, grass and path.  It is a true cross country course that tests the very best of runners.

The U9 team ran first and for many, this was their first time running in a competitive race.  Arthur ran hard from the start and came a credible 12th.  However, star of the day was Edward who not only won the event, but also broke the course record by 6 seconds.  The new record is now 7 mins 20 seconds.  He finished the event hardly out of breath and looked extremely comfortable all the way round.  Cecilia had her first taste of cross country running and it was lovely to see her take part so enthusiastically.

The U11’s also had a successful afternoon; we had a strong girls team who brought home some great placings.  Savannah came 5th, Jess came 15th, Tunrayo came 23rd, Julia came 31st and Valentina came 26th.  The girls just missed out on the podium however looking to the future, this team really shows great potential.  The boys team performed equally well and came 3rd overall, winning a lovely trophy.  Paddy worked his way perfectly up the pack throughout the run, and timed his finish perfectly, winning the race in style.  The team of Paddy, Ewan (13th), Tom (17th) and Wilfred (19th) should be very proud of their performance today.

We were all very excited about the U13 girls race; Clemmie had a bit of a wait at the start of the race so credit to her for staying focused and warm!  Clemmie ran a perfect first 50m, staying strong at the start and standing her ground, then moving swiftly and strongly up the inside and found herself comfortably sitting in 2nd place early on.  Clemmie is an experienced runner and the tension mounted as we waited for her to come back.  She was beaten to 1st place by a very talented and strong Fettes pupil, however we are all incredibly proud of her 2nd place which was very well deserved.

Thank you to Mr Taylor and Mr Tinkler who gave up their Sunday afternoon to help, and of course to Belhaven for running yet another successful and fun event.

This morning, the Headmaster talks to us about the enjoyment music brings to us all and how much we are all looking forward to playing music live in Chapel and singing together once again. The enjoyment music brings is clear when you look at the amazing xylophone playing of Fang Zhang, the young 17 year old musician who recently won this year's BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. What a performance and what a lovely smile!

On Monday, P1 set off on foot to walk to Brae Park, the first time they have been able to go out of school on a trip since they started P1 in August! Our topic is this term is ‘Toys’ and after designing a play park last week with a variety of types of playthings for a range of different ages, we carried out a bit of investigation at The Haugh to see if the play area there met our criteria. Everyone was impeccably well behaved and had lots of fun!

As my colleagues said, the first few years in the profession will have a huge hand in shaping the rest of your career. I’m willing to admit I didn’t quite anticipate those formative years being in the midst of a global pandemic. I described it to a couple of friends in other industries who were moaning about the endless nature of their work via Calls as… “For teachers, it’s a bit like hosting an eight-hour Zoom call with nobody on mute and your camera always switched on.”

Although the experience of lockdown did highlight the very real benefits of digital learning. During this time, we relied heavily on a digital-learning platform to help Cargilfield pupils stay connected with their teachers, classmates and their school work. 

As the pupils have re-engaged with lessons in school, we have been exploring the potential of digital technologies as valuable tools in meeting lots of diverse post-lockdown learning needs. We are also aware of the need to be measured in relation to this approach, as many children may have experienced increased amounts of screen time during lockdown. 

I really missed the buzz of the classroom and the interaction with my colleagues – good, bad and ugly – and became grateful when anyone spoke in my morning online Form Meetings. However, the return to school has brought life and laughter back to the school and it appears life is getting back to a sense of normality. This week we have even attended a chapel service in person for the first time in over a year.

I think inevitably the post-lockdown teaching world will leave a lasting impression on me as an NQT. But this does not need to be a negative. I am hoping it will breed a group of teachers who are placing health and wellbeing and nurturing approaches at the heart of everything now. Allowing careful planning of the curriculum with the child at the centre. Teaching during a pandemic has been a challenge and it has required an ability to adapt and improvise from week to week, but I feel we as a school have risen to the challenge.

I described it to a couple of friends in other industries who were moaning about the endless nature of their work via Calls as… “For teachers, it’s a bit like hosting an eight-hour Zoom call with nobody on mute and your camera always switched on.”

Although the experience of lockdown did highlight the very real benefits of digital learning. During this time, we relied heavily on a digital-learning platform to help Cargilfield pupils stay connected with their teachers, classmates and their school work. 

As the pupils have re-engaged with lessons in school, we have been exploring the potential of digital technologies as valuable tools in meeting lots of diverse post-lockdown learning needs. We are also aware of the need to be measured in relation to this approach, as many children may have experienced increased amounts of screen time during lockdown. 

I really missed the buzz of the classroom and the interaction with my colleagues – good, bad and ugly – and became grateful when anyone spoke in my morning online Form Meetings. However, the return to school has brought life and laughter back to the school and it appears life is getting back to a sense of normality. This week we have even attended a chapel service in person for the first time in over a year.

I think inevitably the post-lockdown teaching world will leave a lasting impression on me as an NQT. But this does not need to be a negative. I am hoping it will breed a group of teachers who are placing health and wellbeing and nurturing approaches at the heart of everything now. Allowing careful planning of the curriculum with the child at the centre. Teaching during a pandemic has been a challenge and it has required an ability to adapt and improvise from week to week, but I feel we as a school have risen to the challenge.

Good morning and welcome to our latest mini concert! There is definitely a sense of optimism around with the continued steady easing of restrictions with the hope that live musical concerts might be possible very soon. In the meantime, well done to all those children who have provided performances for today's concert; there is a lovely range of pieces and it is good to see everyone playing with a smile which is what music making should all be about! As always, a big thank you to our dedicated team of instrument teachers who work so tirelessly with their charges each week.

If anyone would like to play in next week's concert, please get in touch with Dr Allsop!

‘We’ve got a strong link with Cargilfield, who have a lot of good young cricketers who have historically migrated towards Grange, so we’ve got really good feeders into the club now.’

Thank you to John Blain, Head of Grange Cricket Academy Grange Cricket Club, for acknowledging the value of our all year round cricket programme here at school, and for providing such a positive club cricket environment for our girls and boys at The Grange!

Fantastic to be included in The Cricketer Schools' Guide

We are delighted that Cargilfield once again appears in The Cricketer Magazine’s 2021 Schools’ Guide listing the top 100 Senior Schools and top 50 Prep Schools in the UK. We are the only stand alone Prep School in Scotland to be listed in the prestigious guide, and it is fantastic that our strong cricket culture and commitment to cricket 12 months a year as well as a growing girls’cricket  programme has been recognised.

Despite playing no cricket in the summer due to the Lockdown, weekly cricket sessions restarted at the end of August and we look forward to the new season starting in April 2021!

From the Cricketer Magazine:

The Cricketer has published its Schools Guide 2021, featuring the top 100 senior, the top 50 prep/junior, and for the first time, the top 20 all-girls schools in a bumper 148-page supplement.

It follows an exhaustive process which saw a record number of schools submit entries to be included in the guide, despite the ongoing pandemic. All entries were judged against an extensive set of criteria, which included a compelling commitment to cricket in the curriculum, facilities, fixture programmes and coaching.

The Cricketer gathered entries and compiled the leading lists, working alongside former England star Lydia Greenway to select the inaugural top 20 all-girls schools. 

The full list can be seen below.

The Cricketer magazine editor Simon Hughes said: “This year’s Schools Guide is particularly important in showcasing our schools who have kept the game alive through a very challenging summer. Whether it has been remote video sessions, drills in the garden or even Zoom quizzes, schools cricket has emerged resolutely from this pandemic and the appetite to get back out on the playing fields is palpable.

“There should be deserved praise for all the teachers, coaches and volunteers who have put in so much hard work, in the most difficult of circumstances, to preserve a love of the game among the next generation.

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

Top 50 UK Prep/Junior schools

Abingdon Preparatory School; Aysgarth School; Beaudesert Park School; Bedford Preparatory School; Bilton Grange; Birkenhead Prep School; Bishop’s Stortford College Prep; Brentwood Prep; Brighton College Nursery, Pre-Prep and Prep School; Bromsgrove Preparatory School; Caldicott School; Cargilfield School; Cheltenham College Prep School; Clayesmore Prep; Cothill House; Cranmore School; Cricklade Manor; Cumnor House School for Boys; Downsend School; Dragon School; Eagle House; Elstree School; Fettes College Prep; Great Walstead School; Gresham’s Prep School; Highfield and Brookham Schools; Hurstpierpoint College Prep School; King’s Hall School; Lambrook; Ludgrove; Merchant Taylors’ Prep; Millfield Prep; Moulsford; Nottingham Academy Primary; Orley Farm School; Packwood Haugh; Prestfelde Prep School; Repton Prep; Rokeby School; Sedbergh Prep School; Shrewbury House; Spratton Hall; St Andrew’s Prep, Eastbourne; St Andrew’s School, Pangbourne; St Faith’s; St Peter’s, York 8-13; Taunton Preparatory School; The New Beacon; Wellington School Prep; Westbrook Hay Prep School

Shiver me timbers! On Wednesday, P3 had a wonderful day on Pirate Day. The children performed their Hornpipe dance and sea shanties outside to groups of the P1 and P2 children. We participated in Pirate P.E, including tug of war competitions. In the afternoon, we headed down to Cramond beach to look for pirate treasure and do some litter picking in groups. A fabulous day was had by all! Well done, P3!

Cargilfield Connected

We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.

We have places available for 2021 entry in most year groups.

For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.

Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: [email protected] and she will be happy to help you. Thank you
