As part of the COP26 Climate Fringe, a large number of our children’s art work was displayed at St Cuthbert’s Church the week before the critical conference of World leaders in Glasgow began. It was lovely to visit and see so much creativity on show, linked to concern for our planet and climate change.

introTextA few thoughts from Mr Shackleton
leftColBody

Why do we have to learn Latin, sir?”

It has been an immensely rewarding first half of term and the weeks since the beginning of September have flown by. Everyone at Cargilfield, adults and pupils alike, has made me feel very welcome and could not have done more to help me find my feet, often quite literally as I have wheeled my trolley of text books and jotters through the corridors and up the stairs. I have been impressed, as I expected to be, by the standard of Latin and the enthusiasm of the pupils. The efforts that the Form 6s have made to grapple with a complex and highly inflected new language have been heroic. Inevitably this leads to questions about the language, some of which I can answer and some I cannot. What’s the point of deponent verbs? Good question. Is it important to know that the genitive plural of 3rd declension monosyllables whose genitive stem ends in two consonants is an exception to the rule? Possibly not, but I am keen to maintain the reputation of Classics at Cargilfield when its pupils reach senior schools. I want the Classics teachers at the prestigious schools that Cargilfield pupils move on to to know that its pupils have been well taught. What is the point of learning Latin? Ah, that is a very good question indeed.

The teaching of Latin in Britain is initially bound up with religion (the pun is intentional), and I was delighted to find out that the Form 6s were beginning their history of sacred music with Panis angelicus, Thomas Aquinas’s 13th century hymn. Originally missionaries led by Augustine were sent by Pope Gregory in 597 to convert the Anglo-Saxons to Christianity. Teaching Latin so that the Anglo-Saxons could read the bible was integral to this. The teaching of Latin flourished for several centuries but then declined. Alfred the Great played an important part in the resurgence of Latin in the late 9th century. We have a Latin grammar from c1000AD used to teach monks Latin. The clergy were also struggling with their Latin. In Renaissance times, Latin was still the common language used across Europe.

Renaissance humanism began In North Italy in the 13th century with the aim of promoting the study of classical antiquity and this movement spread across Western Europe in subsequent centuries. Classical authors such as Virgil, Horace and Ovid became popular. Other authors became known. The invention of the printing press meant that Latin texts became more readily available. Classical authors were widely admired and even imitated. Neoclassical writers in the 18th century such as Dryden with his translation of Virgil had a large influence. Latin influenced rules for English grammar. Split infinitives were frowned upon because the present infinitive in Latin is only ever one word. Dryden himself is said to have created that rule that sentences should not end with a preposition because in Latin the noun always follows the preposition. This is not a rule I am a fan of.

So why do we still invest so much time and effort into learning Latin? When I have interviewed scholarship candidates and the topic has cropped up, the arguments tend to be utilitarian: Latin is useful in that it helps you with English spelling and grammar; or it is useful because it helps you with Modern Languages. This may be true, but does Latin have no worth in its own right? My answer in a nutshell is that we learn Latin so that we can read its literature and, through it, explore its culture. No translation can capture the rhythm of Virgil’s hexameter, the intricate wordplay of Ovid or the audacity with which Tacitus manipulates the language.

So why do I not hear this argument put forward more often? The answer is simple. If I told the Form 6 pupils that they were learning Latin in order to read the literature, one of them might rightly ask how long they will have to study Latin for to know enough grammar to be able to read literature in the original. If I were to reply that they should be ready after five years, I can well imagine heads going down. It is much safer to fall back on more immediate arguments and focus upon the intrinsic satisfaction of translating accurately and how Latin is useful for English, French and other romance languages. But in my heart of hearts, I know that the reason why I love Latin is the same one that captivated Milton, Dryden, Pope and all those other historical figures in. Hang on in there, Form 6!

Evaluative Practice in Early Years

Evaluative practice is about stepping back from what you're doing and taking a global view of the learning that is occurring with a critical eye. It involves taking stock of our current methods of learning and teaching, assessing how it compares with where we want to be and then taking action to move towards that goal.

In the nursery here at Cargilfield, the things we consider are; where each of the children are with their learning and development, what is the level of emotional care being offered and how high is the quality of the learning environment? Underpinning all of these is the quality of teaching in supporting the children on their learning journey.

Why is it important for us to embed evaluative practice in what we do?

  • A necessary part of high-quality provision for the children
  • Provides qualitative and quantitative information to help improve outcomes for children
  • Builds reflection in to our daily practice
  • Allows staff to make informed judgements on how best to support the children in their learning and development

There are a number of evaluative tools available to staff which we employ in the nursery as part of our evaluative practice. A range of observation techniques are used by staff including; narrative observations, time samples, environment maps, tracking a child throughout a session and peer on peer observation to inform staff discussions. Cohort tracking is also a tool which we employ as part of our evaluative practice in nursery. Collecting data in terms of developmental and learning milestones allows nursery staff to highlights trends, gaps and children who need additional support or those who need extending.

Assessment then plays a crucial role, as shown in the ‘Planning for Learning Cycle’ below.

FB3837BC 5F10 4103 940D 33E06706990C

As a result, a strong relationship exists between assessment and evaluation in Early Years. Assessment documents the learning and the acquisition of skills and evaluation then uses this information to take the learning further; considering the quality of environment and teaching as a result of the completed assessment.

When all these elements of evaluation are knitted together it enables us to take a global view of the learning that is occurring and empowers all those involved to ensure high quality provision for all of the children in our care.

Welcome to the final mini concert of the first half of term! We hope you enjoy watching it and many congratulations to all those who performed in it and also in all our previous weekly concerts so far this term. It has been heartening to see such enthusiasm and positive music making going on and the Music School live with busy with children practising and rehearsing; it really does start to feel as though we are beginning to return to more normality at last, especially when I hear children singing together again. We look forward to hopefully having a live audience soon, and fingers crossed that this happens sometime before the end of term.

In the meantime, have a lovely half term holiday and thank you for all your support at home, and also to our team of music teachers who continue to inspire our children to enjoy their music so much.

leftColBody

Well done to P1-3 for presenting a brilliant Harvest festival service! It was the first Pre-Prep service in the school Chapel since March 2020. They all presented, sang and spoke with great gusto and confidence. P1 were very theatrical with leaf props in their poem, P1 and 2 had wonderful actions with their Harvest songs, P3 presented well researched facts about foods from different countries and encouraged everyone to try shop locally to be more environmentally friendly. The service ended with a thankful prayer from P2 for all the food we have. Thank you for all the many food donations for families in need they have been collected by the charity Fresh Start.

Well done to P1-3 for presenting a brilliant Harvest festival service! It was the first Pre-Prep service in the school Chapel since March 2020. They all presented, sang and spoke with great gusto and confidence. P1 were very theatrical with leaf props in their poem, P1 and 2 had wonderful actions with their Harvest songs, P3 presented well researched facts about foods from different countries and encouraged everyone to try shop locally to be more environmentally friendly. The service ended with a thankful prayer from P2 for all the food we have. Thank you for all the many food donations for families in need they have been collected by the charity Fresh Start.

P1 have been learning letter sounds v and y this week, so they made volcanoes in the sand using coke bottles and mento sweets. Nobody predicted quite how dramatic the eruptions would be!They also worked in teams to build yurts using sticks, rubber bands and pieces of fabric - the weather made it particularly difficult, but everyone managed to create a structure that they could shelter in.

introTextA great day of hockey at Repton!
leftColBody

Our U13 Girls have qualified for the IAPS National Hockey Finals in November at Cheltenham College after a wonderful day’s hockey down at Repton School. We came top of our group which meant we played Sedbergh in the Quarter Finals and after falling behind , we came back to win 2-1 and so reach the Semi Finals. This meant we had qualified for the National Finals and the video shows that the girls were very happy about that!In the semi, we played Repton, our hosts, and despite going ahead we narrowly lost 3-2 and they went on to win the Final. In the 3rd/4th play off, we lost to Eagle House on golden goals, having drawn 0-0 in normal time, which meant we finished 4th overall. A fabulous team effort and we now look forward to the National Finals after half term!

1stXV beat Ardvreck

So the first half of the season comes to an end and although we have not really been tested so far, I have been so pleased with the way in which we have put our systems in to place, embedding them so that we are prepared for the considerable challenges that will come our way after half term when we face our biggest tests with eight huge fixtures where we will need to perform at our very best. Seeing how hard we have worked as a group in practice sessions, when the competition has often been fiercer than in the matches we have played, has shown Mr Stephen and myself that we are in a really good place as a group, with real competition for places which is spurring everyone on to playing at their top level and the rugby we are producing has been very special indeed, and today was no different.

So to today’s one sided encounter played in the sunshine up in Crieff where it was lovely to see our old friends once again. To be honest, the game was over as a contest after the first few minutes as we looked after the ball, dominated the breakdowns winning countless turnovers through excellent jackling, and then used our pace and power in the backs to move the ball in to the wide channels and created lots of scoring opportunities which we took. We off loaded fantastically, ran great support lines, moved the ball through the hands quickly and the patterns of play we produced makes me hugely excited for the much bigger challenges that we shall face in November.

We ran in countless tries and the final score was irrelevant, but the best part of the match was the final 15 minutes when we only had 6 or 7 players on the pitch which really tested our defensive organisation and decision making when up against 13; to see boys putting their bodies on the line time and time again, making huge defensive tackles and then winning the ball and scoring tries through wonderful support play and lines of running was fantastic. The last six standing could hardly drag themselves off the pitch at the end having run themselves to a standstill, and the commitment they showed and their unwavering desire to compete and still score tries even when against 13 men, said a lot about us as a squad.

We have put firm foundations in to place and this team has the potential to do something very special after half term, and I, for one, cannot wait to see how we perform on the big stage. It promises to be very exciting indeed. Very well done, boys, and have a good half term!

For their CE Geography fieldwork project, Form 8 went to Lindores Abbey Distillery in Fife. They were given a fascinating tour of the whisky manufacturing process, and the bottles are now for sale if anyone is interested! We also had an exciting role play tour of the abbey ruins and learned about the history of the abbey and local area and its importance to Scottish monarchy.

Thank you to the Lindores team for hosting us so well and giving us such a useful insight in to the business.

U13B Hockey beat Ardvreck

U13B Hockey drew with Loretto U13A


Undoubtedly the most challenging match of the term thus far.

The 2nd team started comfortably against an Ardvreck that had already suffered a comprehensive defeat against Loretto and so, although they held out for a while, the Cargilfield goals soon started to pour in. Scarlett dominated the midfield and scored at least twice while Amalia was also prolific in front of goal. A final score of 5-1 emphasised our superiority.


The second match, however, was always going to be more challenging and the Cargilfield girls really had to raise their game and battle. The Loretto 1st team contained a number of very skillful players but the general athleticism of the Cargilfield team kept us in the game. Amenah and Sophia were extremely strong in defence but Natasha had to make a series of repeat saves to keep the Loretto strikers at bay.

As the game went on, Cargilfield found their feet and Tunrayo, Scarlett and Jess started to dominate the midfield, prepared to run from box to box. Annika was a skillful attacker and led her side well while Tessa and Julia came on to bolster the team and help us hold out for a 0-0 draw.

The toughest but also the best game of the season so far. With the A team away at the IAPS qualifiers, this team thoroughly deserved their billing as the senior team at home.

introTextA tight encounter!
leftColBody

Cargilfield’s Under-11 rugby team hosted their Loretto counterparts in what turned out to be a great battle of strength, speed and skill.

In the opening half, Loretto had the upper hand in the early stages, comfortably breaking through Cargilfield’s defences and scoring three tries in quick succession. Cargilfield took some time to get into the game but gradually warmed up to the contest and began to exert their own pressure with attacks that grew in fluency and impact. The first half ended with Loretto having an advantage of four tries.

By the second half, the home team had hit full stride and the contest was much more even. Cargilfield showed much greater commitment to their defence and in due course were able to narrow the gap in the score line, with the match eventually ending 10-12 in favour of the visitors.

Well done the boys for some competitive rugby and showing great heart to make something of a comeback - a fine team performance!

Cargilfield’s Under-11 rugby team hosted their Loretto counterparts in what turned out to be a great battle of strength, speed and skill.

In the opening half, Loretto had the upper hand in the early stages, comfortably breaking through Cargilfield’s defences and scoring three tries in quick succession. Cargilfield took some time to get into the game but gradually warmed up to the contest and began to exert their own pressure with attacks that grew in fluency and impact. The first half ended with Loretto having an advantage of four tries.

By the second half, the home team had hit full stride and the contest was much more even. Cargilfield showed much greater commitment to their defence and in due course were able to narrow the gap in the score line, with the match eventually ending 10-12 in favour of the visitors.

Well done the boys for some competitive rugby and showing great heart to make something of a comeback - a fine team performance!

The Lions were first to play against Ardvreck today. They showed great teamwork throughout their entire match. Beatrice and Isla SA worked hard in defence to keep the ball out of the D. Praise and Alexandra brought the ball up the pitch quickly and Livia supported Jemima in scoring two goals. Final score of the first game was 2-0 to Cargilfield.

The Cheetahs were up next. Ardvreck gave it their best shot but with such strong play from Zinnia and Alice in defence, Glory and Isla M midfield, and Helena and Livia attacking, they just couldn’t keep up with the Cargilfield girls. 13-0 full time.

Well done girls, two great games!

introTextA tough encounter
leftColBody

On a blustery autumnal afternoon our 2nd XV headed east to take on Loretto’s 1st XV. After a brief warm up, the boys won the toss and played with the wind for the first half. After a great kick off, Loretto moved the ball effectively to score the first try of the match. Sustained pressure from the Cargilfield men continued, but they sadly couldn’t come away with points. Ultimately, this was to be the tale of the first half with Cargilfield keeping the ball for a number of phases without lacking the punch to get over the line. 32-0 at the break, this did not reflect the effort and play of the boys many of whom had not tested themselves in this environment before.

The second half was a much more even affair, the Barnton boys in control for large parts of the second half and left a few tries out there, which frustrated them. That being said, Zain scored one of the tries of the season. Slick handling and lightening quick ruck ball left Zain with 60m to go, but he jinked his way through the Loretto defence to score. A good effort by the 2nd XV and we will continue to look for more challenging fixtures.

Final Score: Loretto 44 – Cargilfield 7

leftColBody

We had a fantastic start to our netball matches with a closely fought contest with our friends form across the road.

I was so impressed with the standard of play on both teams.

Cramond took an early lead and then we found our form with some great intercepting from Cecilia as Keeper. Lottie CB was fantastic in defence, totally fearless and made some great interceptions. It was clear that the girls had been watching the opposition closely as they quickly picked up how to use the space on the court to their advantage. Emily was fantastic in her court coverage and her use of space allowed for some great passes to Rosanna who was able to covert them into goals. Emily also scored a great goal bringing the score at half time to 3 all.

We pulled ahead in the third quarter with some tremendous running form Lotte and Lottie CB. Lucia and Clara worked well in their positions and then came off for a rest and to cheer on the rest of the team!

Cramond were now on the offensive and scored 3 goals in a row. Determined to go down fighting we came back strongly. Again, Lottie CB in defence, Emily and Olivia in attack were tireless in their pursuit of the ball. Scarlett was also determined to contest for the ball and marked the Cramond attacker fearlessly. Thalia also took no nonsense with some fabulous marking of the Cramond Centre. With just a few seconds to go Rosanna scored again.

What a match! Big thanks to Izzy Flower who scored for us, ran the warm ups for both teams and was generally indispensable.

Final score Cramond 8, Cargilfield 6

REVISION - how can I best support my child? 

Revision is, put simply, the process of reviewing learning. It is something we do every day in all different contexts at school but right now many of you with children in the final few years of the Upper School will be thinking about this in relation to the upcoming November exams.

We like to see revision as a dynamic and engaging process. It can even be fun, as it gives children the opportunity to celebrate their successes. Where things do not go so well, we hope that we are able to support them to grow and learn from their experiences so that the next set of exams are more positive for them.

Here are some GOLDEN RULES for successful revision:

1. It is a process; it is not linear. Like everything else sometimes exams go well and sometimes they don’t. We spend a lot of time in the Upper School teaching children how to be more resilient and it helps if we can all encourage them to see that exam success is not the be all and end all, nor is “failure” the end of the world. Wewill work together to improve, as we do with everything else.

2. The staff already have a very good idea of who is working well and what children need to do to improve. They will be working with them in class and will be talking to you if they feel there are specific areas that you could support at home.

3. Find out what your child will be tested on. Ask your child and if you need further clarification, then have a look at the website. There is specific guidance for each class and each subject there.


Click here to access our Revision pages. 

4. Understand that every child approaches revision in a different way. You will probably be aware of the different learning styles and probably have your views on what type of learner your child is. For example, kinaesthetic learners usually learn by doing. In that case,making PowerPoints might be something they enjoy. Visual leaners might opt for mind maps. Often a combination of several techniques is most effective.

5. We can help. There is information on the website and all the teachers are happy to talk to you about what works. Our learning support teachers coordinate the revision process in the school and spend time helping the children with it. They have lots of experience in different revision techniques and will be able to guide you if you get in touch.

6. Allow your child (with your support) to take ownership of the process. Agree on a revision timetable. Little and often is more effective, as is chunking- breaking down large topics into smaller more manageable areas which can be tackled in about 20 minutes.

7. Relax- pressure from home doesn’t always help. Take cues from the teachers if you are unsure.

8. Remember that hopefully things have moved on since we all took exams. Your experience (either good or bad) is not your child’s. They can do this and they will (even if it takes a few attempts) succeed.

Padel is one of the fastest growing racket sports in the UK, and we are fortunate that Mrs Mackerron takes a keen group to Thistle Padel Club at Craigclockhart every Tuesday evening. They receive coaching from Jorge Martinez, who is the UK's No1 doubles player. Padel is a fast-paced sport played by two people on an enclosed walled court about one-third of the size of a tennis court. It combines tennis rules, with the use of walls (similar to squash) and underhand serving rather than the overhand serving that features in tennis. Lots of fun and the children are enjoying being coached, and playing on such fabulous facilities.

Padel is a fast-paced sport played by two people on an enclosed walled court about one-third of the size of a tennis court. It combines tennis rules, with the use of walls (similar to squash) and underhand serving rather than the overhand serving that features in tennis. Lots of fun and the children are enjoying being coached, and playing on such fabulous facilities.

The children have been doing all sorts of autumn based numeracy tasks including threading numbers in the correct order, making a quantity of items, ordering and sequencing numbers aswell as matching a quantity to a numeral. Well done nursery!

Our Primary 1 classes spent Thursday morning at Lauriston Castle exploring the grounds and hunting for signs of Autumn coming. There were collections of leaves, twigs, berries and seeds and more than a few splotches of mud. They enjoyed learning about dangerous and safe items in nature that can be found by the roadside. They behaved well, used up lots of energy and loved travelling on the minibus for the first time in months.

Police Scotland visited Form 4 today to talk to them about people who help us. They learnt not only about the emergency services, such as the ambulance, fire brigade and coastguard but also about the role of the police. Police Scotland explained the types of transport and equipment they use and the various gadgets they carry with them. The best bits were trying on the police uniform, hats and handcuffs as well as exploring the police car. The children got to sit in the driver's seat and press the buttons that work the siren and flashing lights; it was very noisy and bright!

It has been a landmark week at school, as on Thursday we had a choir singing in Chapel for the first time since March 2020! At the moment, our Form 8s and Form 7s are rehearsing separately and we hope to reform the Chapel Choir after half term when we are hoping to have some whole school services, including our Remembrance Service on November 12th. However, the Form 8 boys and girls sang in junior Chapel on Thursday and how good it was to hear such marvellous singing reverberating through the building once again! Well done, everyone!

introTextForm 7 PSHE lecture

As part of the PSHE syllabus, the Form 7s have been learning about the effects of drugs. To complement this, Police Scotland came in to talk to them about the law and alcohol and drugs. They began by stating the law and legalities of alcohol, before allowing the children to try on some "Beer Goggles" - goggles that mimic what it is like to be drunk. There were lots of stumbling and laughing!

Attention was then turned to illegal drugs. The police discussed some of the effects and consequences of using illegal drugs before showing actual examples of what they looked like.

It was incredibly interesting and informative; thank you, Police Scotland.

introTextA terrific team performance!
leftColBody

1stXV beat St Mary’s, Melrose

With COVID at Belhaven putting pay to last week’s fixture, the team were keen to build on the excellent performance at Fettes the week before and continue to build our patterns of play as we head towards the big games of the season which come thick and fast after half term: Aysgarth and Sedbergh home and away and two more matches against Merchiston. Getting our systems in place now so that we are ready for these challenges to come has been the focus of our daily training sessions and it has been great to see players listening and working incredibly hard, always looking to improve and the team spirit and work ethic within this group of boys is tremendous.

During the week, our focus has been on our defensive systems, learning when to leave the ruck alone, when to flood the ruck and counter and when to try to jackal, communicating with each other and taking responsibility for the tackle; we have done lots of work playing with a reduced defence which has forced players to work even harder and the fact that we kept a clean sheet even when playing with just 8 v 13, conceding a try in the final play of the game, showed the benefit of tall his hard work. Getting these systems in place will be so important when we shall come up against more of an attacking threat after half term, but I was really pleased with what we achieved today with players talking to each other, making good decisions and not shirking their defensive duties.

It was an absolutely wonderful early autumnal afternoon with the sun blazing down and it was lovely to see so many parents back on the touchline again following the easing of Government restrictions. Hearing applause and encouragement certainly made for a terrific atmosphere and the large crowd were treated some very special rugby as we ran in twelve tries against a spirited St Mary’s side who never gave up, but who could not cope with the power, pace and speed at which we played for the whole 40 minutes.

I have to say that in all the years I have been coaching the 1stXV, I have seen few better team performances, playing such attractive free flowing rugby. Yes, we have some titanic games against English schools over the years, nip and tuck and had to dig deep to get the result, but despite the opposition lacking the fire power to compete with us today, we still played some outstanding rugby, recycling the ball time after time after time, making good decisions as to whether to off load or go to ground and then moved the ball out in to the wide channels running excellent lines to outwit the opposition defence. The fact that all our 12 tries were scored by the backs says a lot: we moved the ball really incisively and with real skill and flair after so much good work up front in the build up. We won a lot of turnover ball with the forwards rucking with real pace at the breakdown and we jackaled intelligently too giving away very few penalties which bodes well for the rest of the season. It was a mightily strong performance from the forwards and it would be invidious to pick out individuals on what was a real team effort.

We were a step up from our last game against Fettes when it took us just a wee while to hit our straps, whereas today we were out of the blocks very fast indeed from the off, almost scoring after keeping the ball for two or three minutes from the kick off. It was very entertaining to watch, and the whole team can be very proud of the way we were so ruthless and clinical and did not take our foot off the gas even when I took half the team off for the final ten minutes – this is the lesson we need to take from this game: the intensity which we played for the whole match, never once sitting back thinking the job was done. If anything, we worked even harder when we were down to just 8 players, still going through the phases and creating space out wide using the ball at pace and showing great footwork and ball speed through the hands. Well done all of you.

Yes, sterner challenges lie ahead, of course. However, we are building nicely and with one game left up at Ardvreck next week before half term, I know we shall want to finish what has been a hugely impressive first half of the season in fine style, and with a number of boys having been taken off early today, I know they will be chomping at the bit next week!

Thank you to Mr Pounder from Glenalmond who came down to referee – almost two years to the day since he last refereed!

introTextLots of terrific rugby in the sunshine
leftColBody

We enjoyed a good game of rugby against St Mary’s this afternoon. With St Mary’s a little short on numbers, we combined the teams and played a ten-man match, so there were as few subs as possible. The game was a bit congested and it took us a while to adjust but I was pleased to see our best rugby in the final third. It was good to see Monty giving instructions and communicating to the team, with Rafa also taking a lead role in organising things.

We scored a number of tries and the best one came from a number of phases, the ball going all the way out to one wing before coming all the way back to the other before the try was scored. The ball must have been passed 20 times and I was pleased to see the linking, passing and positional play. Senuka ran with real power and speed, as did Tristan. The boys are beginning to learn how to keep in position and to play a wide game. Sasha ran well when he got the chance and Dexter’s dancing quick feet were great to see. Great hands from Archie who linked really well, as did Monty, Alexander A and Rafa who’s timing on the pass was excellent. Mack, George and Maxi all ran well with the ball when they got the chance.

In defence, we tackled well on the whole, particularly from Wilfred, Harry and Rafa, although we still need to work on keeping a good shape and trusting the man next to us to make his tackle. I suppose this only works if you can really rely on them to make the tackle and a few missed tackles from some of the boys led to their tries. Charles showed good intelligence by aiming to tackle his man into touch to win the turn-over.

It was great to see everyone enjoying their game, other than poor Alexander L who misplaced his gum shield, but the group are really coming together as a handy squad, there is real depth of talent in this group. I look forward to seeing them grow and develop as the season progresses.

Well played, boys.

On a sunny afternoon, the U10 girls journeyed to Clifton Hall with the aspirations to claim not just one victory but two. As Fettes and Clifton Hall played the first match, Cargilfield watched on sizing up their future opponents. Cheered on by parents and grandparents, the girls took to the field to face Fettes. An aggressive start resulted in two quick goals from Lottie and Thalia. A series of good passing at the start of the second half allowed Olivia to get on the scoreboard, with Athena following suit not long after to conclude a 4-0 win against Fettes. Riding the wave of success, Lottie opened the match against Clifton Hall with an instant goal. This competitive spirit continued throughout the match, concluding in a 3-1 victory for Cargilfield. Well done girls, keep it up!

Under-10 Rugby Triangular

Some of our Under 10s travelled away to Clifton Hall for a triangular with the hosts and Fettes Prep.

In the first match, Fettes edged Clifton Hall by two tries to nil. In the second match, Cargilfield took on Fettes and the match went backward and forward on the short pitch but a couple of try-saving tackles from Caspian and Leonardo ensured that Cargilfield was able to seize an advantage of two tries by the final whistle. Jamie, Theo, Edward and James S were great on the attack, providing impetus which kept Cargilfield on the front foot.

In the final match, Cargilfield and Clifton Hall battled it out, Cargilfield lost a bit of form in defence - possibly due to tiredness resulting from playing two games on the trot, which allowed their opponents to exploit gaps in the line, but overall the boys stayed competitive and hard to stop. Toby, Arthur and James M impressed in this match, making some strong runs and showing commitment in their tackling.

Under-10 Rugby Triangular

Some of our Under 10s travelled away to Clifton Hall for a triangular with the hosts and Fettes Prep.

In the first match, Fettes edged Clifton Hall by two tries to nil. In the second match, Cargilfield took on Fettes and the match went backward and forward on the short pitch but a couple of try-saving tackles from Caspian and Leonardo ensured that Cargilfield was able to seize an advantage of two tries by the final whistle. Jamie, Theo, Edward and James S were great on the attack, providing impetus which kept Cargilfield on the front foot.

In the final match, Cargilfield and Clifton Hall battled it out, Cargilfield lost a bit of form in defence - possibly due to tiredness resulting from playing two games on the trot, which allowed their opponents to exploit gaps in the line, but overall the boys stayed competitive and hard to stop. Toby, Arthur and James M impressed in this match, making some strong runs and showing commitment in their tackling.

Well done to all the boys for an excellent effort.

Picture 1The return of parents to watch matches came with glorious sunshine and an apparent blessing on this move towards normality.

And with the sunshine, a confident 2nd team brought some of their best rugby skills and played some excellent handling rugby in their defeat of a St Mary’s team that has sadly been reduced to nine players.

Cargilfield took an early lead in the first half and, by half-time, were well in control. The second half saw St Mary’s come back with two tries and an emphasis from Cargilfield on moving the ball through the hands of the whole team. There were fewer tries as a result but some lovely running rugby and teamwork. Players rolled on and off to maximise the potential of our squad and give everyone a good run out but the team can be rightly proud of the standard they are already achieving with half-term around the corner.

I believe that Cargilfield ran out as victors by about seven tries to two with each side missing one conversion. How pleasant it was to hear appreciative applause for the boys’ efforts once again.

On a balmy afternoon in the sun the under 12 A’s did not fail to impress, with a cracking match of great sportsmanship and skill. Coming away with the win thanks to goals from Savannah, Scarlett, Jess, and Athena, a notable mention to the defence by Tunrayo, Miranda, and Tessa. The girls came back strong after St George’s scored the first goal with an ambitious drive to prove themselves. This hunger in turn paid off as they finished the match with a final score of 4-1 - Well done girls, a fantastic match!

U11A Hockey vs St George’s

We played two matches today. One on a smaller pitch with small goals and the other on a full half pitch. In the first game on the smaller pitch, we began tentatively with soft passes and a lack of determination – apart from Beatrice who doesn’t drop below a full smash when she makes contact with the ball. However, once we had warmed up, we began playing some nice hockey, the kind of hockey I had seen in training, with the centre players feeding the right wing. St George’s were good at getting in behind our defence and we conceded after a lack of marking. Isla G had already made some great saves but on this occasion, she was left exposed and St George’s managed to squeeze the ball passed her. We eventually began passing the ball harder and this meant we could move it more quickly to get up to the other end. Valentina linked up well with Isla C on the right and Gabriella was on hand to slot in the equalizer. Valentina then scored the second as we completed a great come back. Player of the match in the first game was Beatrice.

In the second match on the bigger pitch, the scoring went the same way: conceded first followed by two goals to win. In fairness, we had a goalkeeper and had it not been for Isla’s heroics, St George’s would have scored more. We did lack a little composure up front and missed some easy chances but Emilia DH worked hard on her own up front and scored the two goals to win the second match 2-1. Player of the match in the second game was Valentina.

Well done, girls!

The sun was shining for Cargilfield’s U13B playing Loretto today. It was a slow first quarter with one goal from Amalia after 8 minutes. Another goal from Amalia, a goal from Bea and two goals from Loretto made it 3-2 at half time. A much stronger third quarter with great defence from Cargilfield’s backs. Annika was quick to set up another goal for Amalia. It was an exciting final quarter where there were two more goals from Bea, one in the last minute!

Final score: 6-2 Cargilfield. Well done girls – good teamwork!

introTextP2 celebrating in medieval style!
leftColBody

Our P2 Castle Day took place this week on a day of unexpected sunshine and the children arrived in splendid fashion dressed in their medieval costumes. The day started with a Ceilidh dance called “The Swedish masquerade” performed under the watchful eye of their dance teacher, Mrs Brockbank. Our magnificently dressed Lords and Ladies (including a scary looking dragon) held their heads high as they marched in the opening section of the dance. They became the castle ghosts in the waltz section and then, in the polka section, became frogs jumping in the moat!

Inspired by a medieval jester performing some tricky juggling tricks we then had a go juggling ourselves using some colourful scarves. We even did some acrobatics by balancing on top of each other in a pyramid shape. Carrying on the jester theme, we then made our own jester hats out of coloured card.

Meanwhile the cooks were busy in the castle kitchen preparing a scrumptious banquet for us to eat in the Great Hall. We ate some hot vegetable broth then a variety of cold meats including ‘wild boar’, ‘pheasant’ drumsticks, ‘venison pie’ and some ‘quails’ eggs. We ate vegetables grown in the castle gardens and drank ‘wine’ crushed from the grapes. Dessert followed with delicious strawberry tarts and jellied fruits. We ate off slices of stale bread called ‘trenchers’ and ate with our fingers. There were no forks in medieval times! During our feast we welcomed Lord Taylor of Cargilfield who had just returned from a morning of hunting in the forest, and we entertained him with our hilarious jester jokes.

The afternoon saw us training to be knights and performing various challenges. Each required strength, accuracy and bravery and a lot of perseverance! We threw spears at increasing distances and practiced our jousting skills by aiming our lances through rings while charging on our horses. We concluded the afternoon with a highly spirited game trying to capture the flag from each other's castles.

A huge thank you to all of you for helping to make our P2 Medieval Castle Day such a memorable one.

“Be kind, be kind, be kind”

As you know, the Cargilfield’s golden rule is ‘be kind, be kind, be kind’. As well as offering a full curriculum covering a wealth of subjects, alongside an extra-curricular programme that is bursting, teaching children to be kind is part of the everyday essence at Cargilfield. Even small acts of kindness create feelings of self-worth and belonging. I find a smile, and a child rushing to hold a door open for me saying “good morning” makes me start of the day with a spring in my step. This in turn creates better concentration and improved results. Kindness is a key ingredient that helps children feel good. Patty O'Grady, an expert in emotional learning reports that “kindness changes the brain by the experience of kindness. Children and adolescents do not learn kindness by only thinking about it and talking about it. Kindness is best learned by feeling it so that they can reproduce it.”

There are a number of physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved by being kind. Altruistic actions trigger a release of the hormone oxytocin, which can significantly increase a person’s level of happiness and reduce stress levels. Kindness is a key ingredient that enhances positivity and helps children feel good about themselves as it increases serotonin levels. This important chemical affects learning, memory, mood, sleep, health, and digestion.

It’s become quite clear that modern education ought to encompass more than just academics, and that matters of the heart must be taken seriously and nurtured as a matter of priority, which is exactly the ethos we foster at Cargilfield.

What are you doing today to be kind to someone? Perhaps writing a small note for a friend, helping an older relative with their shopping or simply smiling at someone as they walk past. These small gestures can make a huge difference to someone’s day.

introTextAn absolute try fest!
leftColBody

On a blustery September afternoon our U10 entertainers headed west to take on Clifton Hall. After a brief warm up, the boys won the toss and played down hill for the first half. Our U9’s linked well with some slick handling from Wilfred, Hamish and Jamie for Toby to crash in for the opening score. There was a back and forth that resembled a game from the NBA, with some fabulous attacking rugby, alongside some pretty soft defence, which led to a rather interesting halftime score of 45-40 to the hosts.

After the hairdryer treatment from both defence coaches, both teams stepped up their defence in the second half. This was in part down to Leo, JamesX2 and Arthur who brought an abrasive physicality all afternoon to contain Clifton Hall’s large ball carriers. However, the day belonged to our most reluctant, yet wonderfully talented rugby player Theo who jinked his way through the Clifton Hall defence to drag the Barnton boys back into the game. A fantastic game that ended up in a 65-65 draw.

Final Score: Clifton Hall 65 – Cargilfield 65

POTM: Theo & Arthur

Try Scorers: Lost count….

A film was made in the 1960s about the vibrant community in and around Cramond, and a section of the film looks at Cargilfield and its role within the community. It makes for interesting watching, and whilst many things are familiar, others have clearly changed!

Welcome to our third mini concert of the term! Once again, we have a lovely variety of performances with children from the Pre Prep right up to Form 8 - seeing how they progress over years is wonderful to see! We hope that you enjoy watching it, and you can look back at previous concerts by browsing though our YouTube channel. As always, thank you to our team of teachers who work so hard with the children, and also to the parents who support their children's musical development at home. If you would like to play in next weeks concert, please get in touch with Dr Allsop!
