Form 5 had a great time doing the Pentland Round in aid of our three school charities Dogs for Good - UK Penumbra Penumbra and SuperTroop. This year, we are having to do it in year group bubbles and without parents, but we look forward to it returning as a whole school community event in 2022!

introTextAn excellent display of rounders!
leftColBody

The Form 6 girls finished off a very short season in fine form today with a comprehensive win over Belhaven. Scarlett captained the team today and we started the match by batting first. We had a good warm up and the girls were switched on and ready to go.

There was really no stopping this group of girls today; all of the girls ran hard to get to post 2, and hardly any stopped at post 1. The half rounders came flying in and the girls were hard to field against. Izzy and Lucy were our top scorers in this innings with 3 a piece and Jess ended the innings on 2 ½ and Julia on 2. The Belhaven girls struggled to score against our tight fielding; our catching was good today with Savannah catching 2 girls out on balls 3 and 14, and Lucy dominated post 2, stumping it quickly and accurately. It was very much a team effort with all girls playing their part and keeping the Belhaven girls a bay.

Half time: Cargilfield 13 Belhaven 1 ½

Another strong innings followed from our girls, and they were really flying high. Every single member of the team added to the score sheet, with top scoring again going to Izzy (3 ½) followed closely by Jess and Lucy both on 2. The attacking nature of the girls in bat played a huge part in our win today, and it was so lovely to see them play with such confidence. The Belhaven girls had a bit of a mountain to climb however they stuck in and came back in to the match a little in the latter stages of the game. Catches from Savannah and Lucy put 2 players out and once again, our general tight fielding kept the Belhaven girls to 6 ½. Julia ran particularly well round the posts in this innings, hungry to score and quick between the posts.

Full time: Cargilfield 25 ½ Belhaven 8

introTextP2 learn all about animals!
leftColBody

P2 experience life on the wild side!

The P2 classrooms took on the look of a menagerie last week as the children came dressed up in their animal costumes ready for our P2 Animal Day with Donald Malone from Wildside Nature.

Our day started with a hunt for some animals hidden in the woods. Donald talked about the animals we had found and whether they were endangered or not. We measured the wing span of an albatross and became babies about to fledge their nest. Different stations were set up with several skulls, bones and other items related to the different vertebrate species such as birds and mammals. We went round each station examining the artefacts and identifying which species they came from and what were the common features that linked them. Some of the skulls were from native Scottish animals, some of which still exist, while other species are now extinct here in Scotland.

Having investigated a beaver pelt, low jaw and sticks that had been stripped of bark by beavers, we discovered more about this unique species that have been introduced to Scotland after they were hunted out. We had a go at building our own beaver lodge and at making mini beaver dams. We tested each one to see which one held back the water the longest.

We then played a game of squirrel tig. In this game we saw the impact the non-native grey squirrel has had on our native red squirrel populations after it was introduced to the UK from North America. We discussed how the red squirrel is now endangered here in Scotland.

In another activity we saw how bats hunt using sound. We became moths and were given some echolocator shakers to make a noise with. Individual children were chosen to be the bat and were blindfolded. We had to see if our ‘bat’ could locate its prey just through using sound or echolocation.

We then returned to the classroom and wrote letters to Donald thanking him for his visit. We told him what we had most enjoyed and the amazing animal facts we had learnt. We agreed that we wanted Donald to come again and share more of his wonderful animal knowledge!

Welcome to our penultimate mini concert of the term! Once again, we have some wonderful performances from our musicians and it has been lovely to be inundated with so many requests from children wanting to play. Thank you to our team of music teachers who continue to encourage and teach the children every week, and to all the parents at home who also make sure that practising is done and so ensuring that the musical heart of the school remains beating despite these strange and difficult times.

Thank you to our team of music teachers who continue to encourage and teach the children every week, and to all the parents at home who also make sure that practising is done and so ensuring that the musical heart of the school remains beating despite these strange and difficult times.

Well done to the eight children who have all passed Grade 5 Music Theory. Achieving a certificate at this level (and in most cases with Merit or Distinction) is a very significant achievement. Well done, everyone! #cargilfieldconnected

In the second week of June, everyone in P1 took part in a Talent Show. They chose a wide range of different talents to show their friends, all of which were well rehearsed and great to watch. We had magicians, singers, musicians, linguists, stand-up comics, dancers, animal impressions, gymnasts, sportsmen and poets to name but a few. The audience were fabulous; they listened really carefully then clapped and cheered in all the right places. Well done P1’s – some of you have a great future ahead of you on the stage.

introTextA good team performance
leftColBody

Well done to the girls who rounded off a strange term of rounders in fine fashion with a strong win over Belhaven. The weather was gorgeous with hot sun beating down. We batted first and it has to be said, looked a little shaky at points; we lost 6 of the girls throughout the match which was far from ideal however the final 3 of Clara, Venetia and Poppy kept us in the game. Poppy in particular was strong, and she scored 3 ½ rounders and would have scored more, if there had been more good balls on offer.

The Belhaven girls came in to bat and luckily our fielding was better than our batting! It took them to ball 12 to score any rounders and particularly strong fielding from Katinka and catches from Charlotte and Poppy saw their score limited to 3 ½.

Half time Cargilfield 6 Belhaven 3 ½

We started strongly in our second innings with both Clara and Clemmie scoring whole rounders in the first 2 balls. We did not lose any of our players and we stayed steady and racked up the half rounders. Once again, Poppy scored well and she really was the stand out player today, scoring 2 ½ I her second innings.

Some very good fielding followed from the girls, and we put Belhaven out after 25 balls. Poppy made a steady catch on ball 2 and Valentina had a flurry of put outs at post 1 after Josephine pitched the balls perfectly to her. Clemmie was super steady at 2 and nothing seemed to phase her.

P3 enjoyed a fabulous Saturday in school last weekend. Although they were not able to camp due to COVID regulations, they still learned how to put up a tent and then enjoyed a fantastic ocean conservation workshop from Donald the Explorer from Wildside Nature which had to take place in the Sports Hall instead of Cramond Beach because of the rain, and then enjoyed marshmallows and hot chocolate round a fire in the woods to round things off.

1stXI beat Grange CC by 5 wickets

There were more than a few tired, stiff and sore bodies amongst the From 8 boys who had only returned from a week’s camping in the Lake District the day before but they hauled themselves out of bed to play only our second proper 1stXI match of this truncated season, and it was good to see half the side made up of U12 boys too. All were looking forward to another encounter against the Grange who we had narrowly beaten a few weeks ago At Portgower Place. Today’s venue was Broomhall CC over in Fife, on an artificial wicket, but the outfield was dry and we were forecast a dry morning, perfect for our 9am start time for a 25 over a side game.

Having lost the toss, we were invited to bowl first and we bowled very tidily indeed overall, with nine bowlers having a bowl, and we limited a strong Grange batting line up to 150 in their 25 overs, centred around an unbeaten 50 from their skipper, but it was a good effort all things considered, but still a very competitive total that would take some chasing. I though we fielded pretty well too, saving a number of runs through some excellent ground fielding (especially Sebastien and Charles) and although we dropped a couple of sharp chances, we kept up the intensity pretty well. Harry bowled some good off spin, Charles and Alexander bowled some excellent medium pacers and Glen bowled a fantastic first spell in his first proper 1stXI appearance of the season. So, it would be a good chase, but we bat long and the important thing would be to run the singles and be patient……little did we know just how close it would end up!

We quickly slipped to 23-2 and this brought Glen to the crease to join Rory, and this would be the key partnership of the innings in many respects; if they both scored runs, we would get close to the target. As it turned out, they put on 63 runs in just over 8 overs, and Glen, in particular, smashed the ball to all parts of the ground, including one enormous straight six that just missed my car! They seemed to be taking the game out of Grange’s reach, but then suddenly Glen was caught behind for 38 and Rory fell soon afterwards for 39, and all of a sudden we were 89-4 after 14 overs, with plenty still required.

Harry and Ollie began to rebuild the innings, putting on nearly 30 together, but when both of them fell in consecutive balls, we were 114- 6, needing 36 off 6 overs, with only the lower order left and two new batsmen at the crease. However, cometh the hour, cometh Seb and Xander! Together, they batted really sensibly, running the singles well, turning ones in to twos and hitting the occasional boundary, building their partnership and you could feel the frustration building in the Grange fielders.

Slowly but surely, they began to chip away at the total and kept us in touch going at roughly a run a ball, but then the Grange skipper came back on to bowl his last two overs, but we managed to hit a streaky boundary, and then suddenly it was down to 9 off 12, then just 3 needed off the last over. Nails were being bitten and everyone was on the edge of their seats, then Sebastien hit the second ball through the covers for two, meaning one needed of four balls……could it happen? The ball was outside off stump and Seb hit it away through the covers, diving headlong to make his ground at the non striker’s end.  Just 3 balls remaining.......what a run chase under pressure!  Nerves of steel from Seb and Xander!

Game over. What a win, and what a terrific partnership to clinch a memorable victory in what was a super game of cricket, played in excellent spirit.

Well played, boys. An absolutely wonderful Saturday morning of schoolboy sport.

Many congratulations to Form 8 and their teachers on a fantastic set of Common Entrance results which, as tradition dictates, the Headmaster handed out on Friday morning, surrounded by the sun drenched hills down in the Lake District. 

In this disrupted and challenging year, they have all worked so hard and risen to the challenge and fully deserve their success!

On Wednesday 16th June 2021 we welcomed Loretto Under 9 boys for a thrilling game of cricket. It began when they elected to field having won the toss. Arthur and Fionn opened the batting for Cargilfield and got off to a strong start with a partnership of 25 from their 2 overs, including some lovely boundaries from both boys. The next pair was Caspian and Edward who made a partnership of 29, with Caspian hitting fours for fun as he smashed four of them over the legside boundary in one over. The impressive batting continued with Leo and James S both contributing some nice shots. We were also fortunate to have one Loretto boy playing with us to even the numbers and he played some lovely defensive strokes to keep his wicket against some good bowling and guide us to a formidable total of 88 runs.

Upon our turn to field, Arthur opened the bowling and got 2 wickets in 2 balls, catching one himself and Edward, captain of the side, caught the other. He went onto to make a second catch at midwicket in the following over off nice bowling from Fionn. More strong bowling was displayed towards the back half of the Loretto innings as James M and James S both knocked the stumps over with beautiful balls. However, what impressed most was the fielding as we had been working hard on that in training before the game. We managed 4 run outs, 2 from Caspian and 1 each from Edward and Arthur. This superb fielding performance meant we took 9 wickets, holding Loretto to just 7 runs. A comfortable 81 wicket victory should be viewed very positively however there are still areas to work on which we will be focusing on leading into the next match.

It was U10 v Loretto Rounders and it was perfect weather for it. It was a strong first inning of batting from Cargilfield, with some pretty hefty hits from Bea and Isla G. A solid 13 rounders scored in the first 30 good balls. Loretto took to the bats and there was some equally good hitting. Loretto had some speedy running but sometimes it backfired and they ran each other out! 9 rounders scored by Loretto and it was back to Cargilfield for our second inning. Loretto did some excellent fielding but again, some super shots meant that Cargilfield scored 15 rounders in the second set. With Loretto’s second team, our fielding stepped up a gear and despite some good hits from Loretto, Emilia’s quick catching and super teamwork from all the girls, Loretto managed 4 rounders. End result was a solid Cargilfield win: 28 rounders to 15; well done to all players!

Loretto did some excellent fielding but again, some super shots meant that Cargilfield scored 15 rounders in the second set. With Loretto’s second team, our fielding stepped up a gear and despite some good hits from Loretto, Emilia’s quick catching and super teamwork from all the girls, Loretto managed 4 rounders. End result was a solid Cargilfield win: 28 rounders to 15; well done to all players!

leftColBody

On a beautiful day the U11 boys cricket took a break from exams and took the short trip south to Musselburgh to play Loretto School. With coach Pike, up Scafell Pike his deputy took on the role of coach for the afternoon. Felix lost the toss and the boys were asked to bowl first.

Opening the bowling would be Daniel and Orhan, who produced an excellent opening the spell creating pressure which led to an early break through from Daniel. Things ticked over into the latter part of the Loretto innings, when on debut for the U11A’s, Oliver, channelling his best Glen McGrath impression produced two fine overs, including a wicket maiden to halt Loretto’s onslaught. Tight overs followed from Kit, Tom, Sylvan, Archie and James and with the help of some wonderful fielding restricted Loretto to 71 from their 20 overs.

Orhan and Felix opened the batting and got the side off to a flyer off the first 5 overs. Orhan’s fine stroke play was prematurely ended by one big shot too many, whilst Felix continued to pick apart the Loretto attack eventually retiring 22*. This brought Tom and Conrad to the middle, in a bizarre sequence of play Tom was innocuously ran out for 1. Conrad instead of feeling the pressure of the situation deemed attack as the best form of defence and unloaded a series of powerful shots to also retire 20*. It was then left to Freddie and Archie to bring the team home with 5 overs to spare. Well done, lads!

introTextA terrific performance, boys!
leftColBody

Cargilfield 142 for 3 wickets

Loretto 24 for 10 wickets

It was a pleasure to take the F5 boys on a sunny afternoon for their match against Loretto, and I was delighted with the enthusiastic and skilful way in which they played, showing real improvement in all aspects of the game, batting, bowling and fielding.

We played pairs, with each pair batting for three overs. Batting first, we only lost 3 wickets in our 18 overs which was a terrific performance. We punished anything off the stumps, we ran well between the wickets (the fact that no one got run out tells its own story!), and we were careful when the ball was straight. We scored 142 runs in total, with Monty and Kasim scoring 37 from their three overs but all the pairs batted very well and showed lots of promise for the future.  This was a terrific total and would be very difficult for Loretto to chase, and so it proved.

With the ball, we bowled straight! I tell all children that at this level, 98% of batsmen are out bowled, so if you bowl straight, more often than not, you will get wickets, and so we did, ten of them! Kasim took a great catch behind the stumps, but the highlight was Wilfred taking a triple wicket maiden from his over – a rare event indeed!

So a convincing win, but more important was the learnings from today. Cricket is a complicated game and I was delighted to see the boys so enthusiastic and always looking to improve their technique with the bat and the ball. Well done indeed, and it was a pleasure to take you!

The newly hatched Nursery duckings had their first swim this morning. The children were extremely excited to see them ducking and diving under the water and to see their webbed feet in action.

introTextThe importance of developing a growth mindset
leftColBody

How can we help children become more resilient?

During the current pandemic we have all faced adversity in one form or another and having the resilience to weather times like this is key to maintaining a fulfilling and rewarding life.

Paradoxically resilience tends to develop and strengthen in the face of adversity. Facing up to the challenges of multiple lockdowns and the disappointments these have inevitably brought actually provide the building bricks for developing greater resilience. However, in order to utilise this opportunity, children need constant support and encouragement from the adults around them. Helping them navigate their way, providing emotional guidance and encouraging perseverance leads children to a better understanding that things will get better and disappointment and sadness don’t last for ever.

In encouraging and developing resilience it is important to allow children to engage in some minor risk taking and decision making even if there is the chance of some bumps and bruises along the way. They are then able to learn how to fail and try again, set and test boundaries and take control for themselves.

Using the “Power of Yet” is also a powerful tool in encouraging children to try new things. It teaches grit and helps develop a growth-based mindset. When they say, “I can’t do this,” then you need to add “yet, I can’t do this, yet.”

rightColBody

Helping children to see themselves as “orchestrators of their own fates” helps them to become independent and autonomous in seeking out new experiences. They understand that while you can’t always control what happens to you, you can always control how you choose to respond to it.

When children are experiencing anxiety, our natural impulse is to protect them. It is tempting to say, “I know it is really scary, and you don’t need to do it if you don’t want to.” However, this actually makes their anxiety worse. It reinforces that this thing must be really scary if an adult think they can’t handle. Instead validate the fear and then help the child build baby steps towards tackling their monsters. It is Ok to feel the fear but do it anyway!

On a final note the Pixar movie Inside Out is worth watching with children. It illustrates to them the importance for their wellbeing of acknowledging and embracing sadness and other challenging emotions and contributes to developing an understanding that happiness can’t be forced and we won’t always be happy all of the time. Perhaps something we all need to remember.

Our C team began strongly with a wicket off the first ball thanks to Leo, and a run out shortly followed from George, who captained the side. On our chance to bat Oliver played some nice shots with a confident hook through fine leg for four the highlight. However, some strong batting and very economical bowling from Fettes allowed them to claim a victory by 36 runs.

Fettes A batted first and Monty was the pick of our bowlers with his 2 overs going for just 4 runs and taking 3 wickets. He also took an excellent low catch to get our first wicket and Harry also took two great catches. Even though there were some powerful shots from Fettes’ middle order, some terrific bowling at the end, reduced their total to 64 runs. Our first over with the bat was conservative but Rafa set the tone after that with a terrific 6 from the first ball he faced. Our batting was very strong with a most of our players getting lots of boundaries which meant we reached the required total with 4 overs to spare. Our captain Archie scored 40 runs from just 17 balls and was voted player of the match for his all-round performance with the bat and the ball. It is lovely to see so much enthusiasm from the boys and the quality of cricket on show was as good as any I have seen from boys of this age. Well played boys and catches definitely win matches!

introTextAn excellent display of rounders!
leftColBody

The girls travelled down to St Mary’s for their rounders match in warm and balmy conditions. As always, it is lovely to see our friends in Melrose and the girls were excited to play.

Miranda captained the team and won the toss and chose to field first. St Mary’s batted well however our fielding was good and we managed to keep their scoring down to 4 rounders. Savannah made a good catch on ball 10 and this unsettled the opposition. We stepped in to bat and we were a little rusty in the first innings; however, we soon found our form and we looked more comfortable. Maybe what let us down a bit was our interpretation of the rules, and I am sure this is purely down to lack of matches. We scored consistently and half time score was 7 ½ to Cargilfiled and 4 to St Mary’s.

We had a bit of a change of positions in the second half and a quick rule clinic too! The second half was much slicker; the girls really dominated well and communicated much better. Lucy bowled accurately and Savannah upped her game and played particularly well in the field, narrowly missing a catch but giving it her all. Julia also fielded well and it was lovely to see the team begin to bond. Lucy made 2 catches and we did not let St Mary’s in to the game at all and they did not score any rounders at all.

Despite having won the game already, we stepped in to bat for our 2nd innings. We just looked a more composed team in this innings, and as per instructions, pushed hard to score even half rounders. The girls looked like they were enjoying themselves more and finished the match with 7 ½ for the second innings.

Final score: Cargilfield 15 St Mary’s 4

The girls travelled down to St Mary’s for their rounders match in warm and balmy conditions. As always, it is lovely to see our friends in Melrose and the girls were excited to play.

introTextA classic cricketing encounter!
leftColBody

On a bright and breezy Wednesday afternoon the Gentleman's XI made the long trek to Melrose. Unbeaten and hardened after a comprehensive victory over local rivals Fettes the boys were brimming in confidence.

We were put into bat on a green wicket and took a cautious approach to proceedings. James and Paddy opened up and hit the boundary frequently, but lacked some assertiveness with their calling which meant singles were hard to find. This was a common theme of the day, Orhan’s clean striking continued but his partnership with Joseph was of a similar outcome. The boys scored a credible 151 off 12 overs.

Our bowling was strong with Oliver opening up and securing a wicket in the first over. Leopold started from the other end and the runs were drying up. Coach Stephen dared to dream an unlikely victory was going to emerge, rather like the impending Euros, it’s the hope that kills you and St Mary’s began to punish our bowlers with their aggressive middle order. Key points for the Gentleman’s XI to take away was to be more assertive with our running between the wickets. An excellent game played in a wonderful spirit as always from these gents. Well done, men!

What a lovely day for rounders! Fettes captain Elizabeth won the toss and elected to field first. Our captain Athena went into bat, hit the ball well and scored an impressive rounder. Emily repeated this super performance with a lovely hit and our second rounder. What a positive start to our game! Ceci and Scarlett also hit well and scored with Athena running for Scarlett due to a pulled muscle. We do need to work on our batting however as several of the girls missed the ball altogether. We still managed 6 off 16 balls for the first innings.

Fettes also had some super hitters, in particular Jess and Pari but Elizabeth and Lottie also hit well. Thalia was very strong on backstop delivering fast accurate balls to Athena on second post. Our fielding is improving and we got 2 girls out. We held Fettes to 3 rounders. Time allowed for a second innings of 10 balls. We scored a further 4 with Thalia and Eva scoring good half rounders. Fettes only managed a further 1 ½ with another superb hit from Pari. Ceci and Lottie worked very hard to get Arabella out on fourth. It was good effort from Cargilfield and a comprehensive win. All the girls enjoyed their game of rounders and we allowed Fettes to hit 6 extra balls to finish off a fine afternoon.

Final score Cargilfield 10, Fettes 4 ½

The F6 boys A cricket team enjoyed a spirited and fun game of kwik cricket with our pals from Fettes on Wednesday. There was some good play from all the boys who showed a lot of enthusiasm and enjoyment for the sport. I was particularly impressed with Freddie and Archie’s calling between the wickets when batting, and Kit scored some lovely boundaries.

We fielded and bowled well, with Slyvan and Tom bowling some great channels. Conrad and Felix both took terrific catches and it was great to hear so much positive encouragement around the field. Well played boys.

The Under 12 B squad enjoyed an entertaining game in beautiful sunshine at Fettes on Monday afternoon. Fettes batted first and reached a total of 77 off their 10 overs. There was some fine bowling from Thomas, Oscar & Zain who took two wickets in his final three deliveries with the help of a great catch from Leo. Cargilfield started slowly with the bat but increased the scoring rate nicely when Theo and Harry came to the crease. With two overs to play they needed 28 runs to win which seemed a tall order but with a fine display of batting and a number of excellent boundaries, including one towering 6, Leo, ably supported by Otis was able to reach the target with time to spare.

The Under 12 B squad enjoyed an entertaining game in beautiful sunshine at Fettes on Monday afternoon. Fettes batted first and reached a total of 77 off their 10 overs. There was some fine bowling from Thomas, Oscar & Zain who took two wickets in his final three deliveries with the help of a great catch from Leo. Cargilfield started slowly with the bat but increased the scoring rate nicely when Theo and Harry came to the crease. With two overs to play they needed 28 runs to win which seemed a tall order but with a fine display of batting and a number of excellent boundaries, including one towering 6, Leo, ably supported by Otis was able to reach the target with time to spare.

What a beautiful day for the Form 6 girls first rounders match of the season. It was wonderful to be playing Fettes for this occasion. Tunrayo was a strong captain, leading the team with words of encouragement. She was also an excellent backstop throughout the match!

In the First Innings, Fettes played a strong fielding game. They caught balls accurately, and were quick to get the ball to second post, causing Cargilfield to only score 7 rounders in total. However, Cargilfield had a great team spirit and supported one another. Savannah was an excellent bowler, shouting ‘stop’ loudly and quickly to prevent Fettes from running further around the pitch.

Score: Fettes 7 Cargilfield 5 ½

In the Second Innings, after a team talk, Cargilfield came back strong! They made more contact with the ball, meaning more rounders scored, and also performed when fielding too. The girls managed to catch a few balls, causing Fettes girls to be out, 4 in total. However, the girls had to think quickly about their passes as Fettes were fast runners and made excellent contact with the ball. Overall, it was an exciting second Innings.

Final Score: Fettes and Cargilfield 12 ½ ….a draw!

Form 7 Boys A Cricket beat Fettes

The hottest day of the term was perfect for our latest fixture for the Form 7 boys’ bubble, and it was lovely to head over to Fettes to meet old friends whom we have not seen for so long! We played a pairs hardball game, and after winning the toss, we chose to bat first.

Having played (and beaten) Merchiston is this format before half term, we talked about the importance of valuing your wicket, being patient and waiting for the bad ball; pairs cricket is good in that it allows everyone to have a go and experience time out in the middle but the fact that you are not out if you play a poor shot does not quite focus the mind so much as sitting back in the pavilion when you have swiped across the line and been bowled! However, I was delighted with the way that nearly all our batsmen knuckled down today, playing each ball on its merit and looked to steadily accumulate runs rather than looking for the big shot. In our 20 overs, we only lost four wickets which was a terrific effort, and it was good to see us run well between the wickets, picking up singles and frustrating the Fettes’ bowlers.

Cameron batted well in his call up to the side hitting the ball powerfully, and Charles and James were most impressive at the end of our innings, scoring at a run a ball and just pushing the ball in to space very intelligently – it was very good to watch. Bruce Russell, the long time 1stXI coach at the senior school and former Scotland player, was full of praise for the way our batsmen applied themselves and played straight. A couple of us need to show a little more patience and hopefully have learned the importance of not straying out of the crease when playing shot, otherwise you will be stumped by the ‘keeper again! But we scored 114 runs, losing 4 wickets which meant we ended up with 94 which would be a tough target for the Fettes batsmen.

Our bowling attack is excellent, with everyone able to bowl straight and on a consistent length and I was really impressed and pleased with the way we went about things in the field today. It was great to see Thabo back on games and he bowled some lovely legspin, and once he relaxed and bowled slower, he proved a handful and got a well deserved wicket; Alexander also bowled really well, nice and straight and on an excellent length giving him a couple of wickets. Wickets continued to fall at a steady rate, but the highlight of the afternoon was a hattrick from Xander who got two wickets with his excellent left arm seam, hitting the stumps again and again, and then on the hattrick ball, Charlie took an excellent catch in the gulley and his team mates erupted! A memorable moment! In fact, our fielding was top class and with 13 wickets taken and the game way out of reach, we perhaps relaxed in the final couple of overs which allowed one of the Fettes boys to free his arms and hit over the top, but the game was long gone by then and it was a comfortable victory and one that showed real promise for the future.

To see the boys enjoying their cricket, continuing to learn and improve and work hard at their techniques is terrific to see. Hard work pays off!

Well played, boys!

It was a beautiful sunny day as the girls got on the bus to Fettes, without a cloud in the sky. Coming off a decisive win before half term, the girls were feeling confident as they arrived.

Isabella won the toss and elected to field. The pitch was again astro turf, a surface the girls are now very comfortable on. Fettes came out fighting in the first two overs, hitting multiple fours and six through square leg. However, after the girls made the wise decision to plug that area with a fielder the runs slowed down. Some excellent fielding was on display as there were 2 run outs, by Bea and Lotte respectively. There was also some excellent bowling as well, as Esme sent a ball crashing into the top of middle stump, and Amalia took a solid catch after the batter lofted one back to her. In the end Fettes were limited to just 31 from their 8 overs, giving Cargilfield a manageable total to chase.

When we came to bat Isabella set the tone for the innings with a huge six off the first ball! She continued with 3 more boundaries through the legside and finished on 22 runs from just 11 balls. Mariella joined in the fun with a boundary of her own making the opening partnership 29 from only 2 overs. Lotte came in later and played some terrific strokes, her 15 off 7 was interspersed with 3 lovely fours. The rest of the batting was incredibly solid, only losing 1 wicket and displaying great communication in our running between the wickets. At the end of the 8 overs Cargilfield made an amazing total of 66, winning by 35 runs.

Overall, the girls played some outstanding cricket, and should all be very proud of themselves. Isabella wins the player of the match award for her amazing batting and captaincy. I hope this winning streak may continue into their next match!

There was also some excellent bowling as well, as Esme sent a ball crashing into the top of middle stump, and Amalia took a solid catch after the batter lofted one back to her. In the end Fettes were limited to just 31 from their 8 overs, giving Cargilfield a manageable total to chase.

When we came to bat Isabella set the tone for the innings with a huge six off the first ball! She continued with 3 more boundaries through the legside and finished on 22 runs from just 11 balls. Mariella joined in the fun with a boundary of her own making the opening partnership 29 from only 2 overs. Lotte came in later and played some terrific strokes, her 15 off 7 was interspersed with 3 lovely fours. The rest of the batting was incredibly solid, only losing 1 wicket and displaying great communication in our running between the wickets. At the end of the 8 overs Cargilfield made an amazing total of 66, winning by 35 runs.

Overall, the girls played some outstanding cricket, and should all be very proud of themselves. Isabella wins the player of the match award for her amazing batting and captaincy. I hope this winning streak may continue into their next match!

Form 7 Rounders V Fettes

I think we felt a little unprepared as we headed off to Fettes this afternoon. However, Lara stepped up and led her team with calmness and was an excellent bowler throughout the match. We lost the toss and batted first. Anna got us off to a great start hitting well into the deep and was definitely our most valuable player of the match. Amenah, Lara and lily also put in a good performance in the first innings and we ended with a total of 11. Fettes came into bat and were a little tentative only scoring a half in the first 10 balls but then they began to find their feet. Our fielding was good and Lara made a super catch, Anna was effective on second base and Sophia kept her nerve, stumping out a player on third.

In the second innings Fettes fought back strongly. There batting stepped up a level and they were much more effective fielding in the deep and limiting our scoring.

Final Score Cargilfield 16 ½ Fettes 12

On a scorching June day, the Cargilfield men took the field against local rivals Fettes, who made the short trip from Stockbridge. Orhan lost the toss and we were put into bat. Fred on debut opened with the skipper and got the team off to a flyer. Joseph and Leopold played some elegant off side shots which showed the improvement the squad has made over the first half of term. Some powerful hitting from Oliver and James pushed the total on to 101 off our 16 overs.

Fettes reply never really got going through some fabulous bowling from Orhan and exceptional ground fielding, catching and throwing from Paddy and Leopold. The Cargilfield men restricted Fettes to 51 in reply. It was a fabulous team performance, however player of the match had to go to the skipper Orhan who scored 39* and contributed with figures of 0-3 off his two overs. Well done, chaps!

leftColBody

Educating our children for the 21st Century

This is a phrase that I have seen bandied around at educational conferences throughout my career and, as a Head Teacher, it is something to which I must pay attention.

As I sit to write this, my first observation is that anyone considering an answer to this question might have come up with very different priorities twenty years ago. There were very few of us that would have placed the response to a global pandemic high on our list of priorities (very few…but I do remember that Mike Wilson, a friend and now retired headteacher, was already planning for just such an outcome). We knew that technology and the internet were going to become more important but were we expecting the death of the fountain pen? It hasn’t happened yet.

Some of the wisest observations that I have heard more recently have tried to address what will happen in the job market when technology replaces many of the skills that currently require human input. When the robots can do it all for us, will our learning start to become redundant?

That would, of course, imply that we only learn to prepare us for the world of employment. Education also makes us more interesting, attractive and happy people. If we do end up with more leisure time (as might be expected given that our own generation generally enjoys more than our ancestors whose manual chores were significantly more time consuming) then we will also have have to learn how to manage more information coming from a wider range of sources…and the stress that this entails. What would Reverend Charles Darnell have made of the nature of my working day?

Many people ask why, in an age where information is so easy to access, do we need to learn things? Nonetheless, knowledge remains important as a framework on which we can build our skills. How will we know what to look for if we don’t have a handle on the core information or recognise the terms of reference? Learning also develops the capacity of our brain and so much of our life requires immediate understanding and we cannot always be stopping to type in or dictate the questions.

rightColBody

Do I think that subjects like Latin or Greek will continue to play a part in a hundred years? Yes, I do. The cultures upon which we pin much of western democracy will continue to be of interest and the intellectual challenge of manipulating a language that is the root of so many other languages remains an exciting challenge for children. I believe that handwriting and mental arithmetic will still play their part and allow us to access the world as human beings – setting us aside from the robot or the computer.

There will be certain skillsets that will continue to set the human brain apart from the microchip (for at least the next eighty years or so). An ability to work in teams, to empathise, to debate or communicate with each other: these will remain important skills and must, therefore, be at the heart of our education, alongside a deeper understanding of how technology can be used to help us. And this pleases me because these skills are at the heart of a Cargilfield education, whatever the subject or activity.

And what are the immediate challenges for our children? In addition to the pandemic, our young people are having to navigate an increasingly challenging world where the behaviours of those who have come before them (including our own generation) have made it more difficult for them. They will have to make massive progress with the need to cut carbon emissions and to create a society less concerned by race, gender and sexuality, but more sensitive to complex and shifting values. Their education must equip them with the necessary emotional intelligence to navigate that world.

I came into teaching because I liked studying English and wanted to coach sport and direct plays. I continue to enjoy my role because I have come to realise how much more sophisticated a good education can be. I don’t have all the answers but the questions are exciting.

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!

Having written his own book on Space during Lockdown in aid of Fairy Bricks, which has raised over £2000 so far, Michael visited the Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity who received a delivery from Fairy Bricks. Sick Kids were extremely welcoming and thrilled with his fabulous fundraising efforts. He was delighted to see huge boxes crammed full of LEGO and learn about how they are used to help children dealing with difficult times and health challenges. The book is still for sale here and the charity makes such a difference to children's lives.The book is still on sale, with proceeds going to Fairy Bricks.

introTextSocial interaction is so important
leftColBody

Since our return to school, after the last period of remote learning, as a staff we have been reviewing and reflecting on our experiences. Whilst we would all much rather have been able to be at school, we have learned a lot from remote teaching and we hope to be able to use some or our new skill set to develop teaching and learning within the school.

As a teacher, one of the things that concerned me especially during the last period of remote learning was the increasing debate in the media that children needed to catch up…. Catch up from what?

Of course, I am in no doubt that we are incredibly lucky to be well resourced and have the backing of a supportive parent body as well as a staff of committed and talented teachers. However, the question remains, what have children missed out on? I think this goes to the heart of what we aim to provide as a school.

Amanda Spielman, the Head of Ofsted, said recently “Parents know that after a year of heavy restrictions children need time with their grandparents, with their friends, to get out of the house and enjoy themselves again. These are things that will help them learn well in school.”

She also said that whilst,” it was clear “that for most children, getting back on track will happen through lessons in their normal classrooms, with their normal teachers”.

Of course, in Scotland we operate under a slightly different regulatory regime known as GIRFEC (Getting it Right for Every Child). This is a multi-organisational approach which means in essence making sure children and young people can receive the right help, at the right time, from the right people. The aim is to help them to grow up feeling loved, safe and respected so that they can realise their full potential.

GIRFEC is at the heart of what we do and it is these extracurricular things that (bubbles permitting) we have been trying to develop since our return. Our priority has been to get the children socialising and interacting with their peers and with their teachers, enjoying time outside during games and activities. If anything, I think it is these things that children need to catch up on. The lovely weather so far has definitely helped. The multi activity camp that most of our children participated in during the Easter break, was a great way to start. It is amazing to walk around the campus and see the Art Room and the Music School full of children just doing their thing. Debating is in full swing and the weekly boarders are back and enjoying baking and barbeques amongst other things. We are making plans to restart our weekly PSHE sessions with form 8 on Wednesday evenings and looking forward to when we can start a more comprehensive range of clubs after supper. Although we are taking things slowly and in making changes as and when the regulations allow, the mood is definitely optimistic with staff planning lot so exciting things for the autumn term.

It is great to be back!

Major Maths Success at this year’s Junior Maths Challenge!

Cargilfield has won an impressive 25 awards in the recent UK wide Junior Maths Challenge for 11-14 year olds, organised by the UK Mathematics Trust.

Taken by some children in Forms 6, 7 and 8 back in April, they achieved 25 certificates which is our best haul ever with 5x Gold, 8x Silver and 12x Bronze awards. A fabulous achievement.

Daniel and Joseph came joint top, followed by James and Mungo who were joint second, and then Glen in third. The five Gold winners did well enough to qualify for the Junior Kangaroo bonus round. (Only the top 10,000 were invited to sit a follow-on competition.) The Junior Maths Challenge was taken by approximately 250,000 pupils. It involves answering 25 multiple choice questions in one hour and is aimed at pupils from S2 and below. 

Top performers go on to compete in either the Olympiad (over 106 marks) or Kangaroo competition. 

The Kangaroo is taken by several thousand pupils across the UK.

Very well done to all those who were successful!
