For the first time this year P1-3 danced their socks off at their Pre-prep Ceilidh in the school Chapel! Everyone danced and remembered all the steps with their partners and Mr Taylor and other teachers joined in too! Well done everyone and thank you to Mrs Brockbank for leading us!

Welcome to our latest weekly mini concert which we are delighted to share with you! It continues to be a delight to see children's enthusiasm for music making, despite the lack of a live audience, and well done to all those who have recorded a piece for this week's concert; as always, we have performers from right across the school and we hope you enjoy listening to it. Thank you to our talented team of music teachers who continue to work so hard with the children week in, week out. If you would like to appear in next weeks concert, please speak to Dr Allsop!

introTextMedals in UK Senior Maths Challenge
leftColBody

1 Gold and 1 Silver award at this year’s Senior Maths Challenge.

Cargilfield has won an impressive 1 gold and 1 silver award (from 2 entrants) in the recent UK-wide Senior Maths Challenge for 16-18 years old pupils. This competition was taken by two of our 11 years old, Form 7 pupils at the start of November.

Daniel was awarded a gold and qualified for the Senior Kangaroo competition to be held later on in the academic year. Joseph performed very well and was comfortably in the Silver range.

Well done to both of the boys who took part.

introTextMaking memories to last a lifetime
leftColBody


Whether taking part in a school camp, the Pentland Round, Outdoor Pursuits, or an extra-curricular club, all pupils at Cargilfield will have taken part in some form of outdoor adventure learning. Whilst the overriding purpose behind these activities is enjoyment, these activities form a vital part of a child’s overall education.

Self-reliance and teamwork – A huge part of being in the outdoors is being able to rely upon yourself and those that you are with. Knowing their own strengths and weaknesses, and those of others around them, will allow the children to bond with their peers in a way which is simply not possible in a secure-indoor environment.

Resilience – Whilst in the outdoors, things aren’t always easy or comfortable. Forcing yourself out of your comfort-zone and into a situation which challenges you is hard, but hugely beneficial. You might get cold, get lost, get tired, or get scared, but overcoming these challenges will allow the children come out of the experience stronger, and with skills that they can apply in other aspects of their lives.

Health – Outdoor activities are hugely beneficial, not only for our physical health, but also for our mental health. Being able to disconnect from phones, laptops and iPads for a weekend helps us to feel rejuvenated and helps us to keep moving in order to develop our cardiovascular fitness and get that much needed Vitamin D.

Skills for life – The skills learnt whilst taking part in outdoor activities are ones that will be used for life; whether it be learning to navigate, to belay someone up a climbing wall, to light a fire, or to put up a tent, these are skills which will be used for the rest of their lives.

Memories – The strongest memories are formed as a result of emotions which is why no one remembers their best day of TV, or the exam questions that they answered at school. The longest-lasting memories will be those of white-water rafting, summiting a mountain, jumping off a cliff, or camping with their friends.

    At a time when we have been forced to spend so much time indoors, outdoor adventure is all the more important, so encourage your children to seize any opportunities for being outdoors, and enjoy the many benefits that they bring.

      F46b4cda 1a21 4fed a1ce a4d0f558b6e6Form 4 had a fierce Friday, welcoming two Vikings to Cargilfield. The pupils were transported back in time through the magic of storytelling, games and lots of fun activities. They explored a real Viking long boat and practiced rowing in time together. They were giving Viking objects such as clothes and cooking utensils. The settlement game was so much fun; our Form 4 Vikings were able to imagine what life on a Viking settlement would be like and just how difficult it would be to become a powerful Viking Jarl. The highlight of the day took place in the sports hall, where all the action took place! Our Vikings had shieldwall and combat practice, where they stood strong, getting ready for battle.Thank you so much to our Viking visitors for a brilliant day!

      introTextP2 classrooms in chaos!
      leftColBody

      This week has been a very exciting and quite extraordinary week in P2! We came into school to find chaos in both rooms with tables overturned and pencil pots strewn across the floor. Some of us even found a rather large footprint on the floor which gave us a clue to the identity of our prehistoric intruders. We decided to set up a camera overnight in the hope of catching a glimpse of the culprits in action. To our astonishment and delight, a rather scaly green tail was sighted in both classrooms. We even hatched a cunning plan to attract our, hopefully, friendly dinosaurs back again. We collected some juicy leaves, some bark and some colourful berries and placed them in our classrooms in the hope that our intruders would return and feast on the vegetation we had provided. We also placed some meat in case our dinosaurs were of the meat-eating kind but was this enough to entice our intruders back once more, and did we manage to catch them fully on camera? Check out the photographs to find out, if you dare!

      leftColBody

      Well done to the Under 13 girls who played at the IAPS National Finals at Cheltenham College this week. While they finished 3rd in the Bowl competition, they were very much in the thick of the competition having put up a great show against some of the top performing teams in England. Cargilfield were once again Scotland's only representative at this UK-wide competition and conformed our position as one of the top British prep schools for hockey. Congratulations to Gresham's from Norfolk who gave us a great game and beat us in the group stages; they went on to win the competition as a whole.

      introTextLots of fun down in Newcastle!
      leftColBody

      An excited group of U11 boys set off on their Rugby Tour on Sat 6th November. Our first stop was at Belhaven where we enjoyed a very even and competitive match. The game was exciting to watch as both teams tried their best to play good rugby and pass the ball around. Our tackling was good on the whole but they had one particularly quick player who was hard to pin down. With the game evenly poised at 8-8, both sets of supporters were relieved to end the game a draw, which was a fair reflection of the energy and passion both teams had put in. We were treated to hot pies and soup afterwards!

      Before I had finished wiping the crumbs from my lapels, the boys were in the bus, ready to head south. A smooth trip down the A1 led us to Newcastle where we checked into the Crowne Plaza Hotel. The boys were thrilled with their enormous and luxurious rooms! We met an equally excited and fun group of parents for evening drinks and enjoyed a delicious meal at the hotel.

      On Sunday, following the most enormous breakfast buffet, we made the short journey to Mowden Hall. It was a good match, although it took us a while to get used to the English rules allowing the players to target the ball in the tackle. A number of times we went into contact and the ball was ripped from our hands. We found our groove in the second half and ran in some great tries. There was a sense of frustration that we hadn’t played such good rugby but we recovered with a hot lunch with our new friends at Mowden Hall. In the afternoon we had a swim at the hotel, enjoyed a game of ten-pin bowling, watched Scotland beat Australia and had a walk about the city centre of Newcastle. In the evening, we had a huge and fun meal out at a restaurant called The Fat Hippo – a fair reflection of the portion size.

      Monday morning started with another massive breakfast buffet before we made a quick hop over to Newcastle Prep School. Before the rugby match we played a chess tournament, which was great. The match was an even contest with some great, open running rugby. We had a better game, perhaps more used to the targeting of the ball, and scored some great tries. After the game, we had a mixed quiz game with the children form Year 6 at Newcastle Prep School. After a delicious hot lunch, we made our way home, happy and exhausted after a fun and exciting tour.

      There were many highlights including outstanding performances on the field, excellent examples of sportsmanship but one particular thought will stay with me. On Saturday evening, amidst the revelry of a busy bar and restaurant, a member of the public stopped me to complement me on the way our boys behaved – they had shared a lift down to the lobby where they had made polite conversation and held back the door to let them through first. Small gestures that make a big difference. Before we left, I challenged the boys to be fine ambassadors of Cargilfield and they certainly did that. Well done boys!

In the evening, we had a huge and fun meal out at a restaurant called The Fat Hippo – a fair reflection of the portion size.

      Monday morning started with another massive breakfast buffet before we made a quick hop over to Newcastle Prep School. Before the rugby match we played a chess tournament, which was great. The match was an even contest with some great, open running rugby. We had a better game, perhaps more used to the targeting of the ball, and scored some great tries. After the game, we had a mixed quiz game with the children form Year 6 at Newcastle Prep School. After a delicious hot lunch, we made our way home, happy and exhausted after a fun and exciting tour.

      There were many highlights including outstanding performances on the field, excellent examples of sportsmanship but one particular thought will stay with me. On Saturday evening, amidst the revelry of a busy bar and restaurant, a member of the public stopped me to complement me on the way our boys behaved – they had shared a lift down to the lobby where they had made polite conversation and held back the door to let them through first. Small gestures that make a big difference. Before we left, I challenged the boys to be fine ambassadors of Cargilfield and they certainly did that. Well done boys!

      On Thursday the P1 classes held a pre-loved toy sale to raise money for our charity this year, Riding for the Disabled. They chose an interesting selection of toys for their shops, devised their own selling techniques and collected the cash from the children from the Nursery, P2 and P3. They raised £234 in an afternoon, which we will send on to support our charity. Thank you to everyone who donated toys and gave their children money to spend at the sale. All of the children went home delighted with their purchases.

      1stVII winners of the Ardvreck 7s

      IMG 9191

      This was the 25th year of the Ardvreck 7s, a day that is always one of the highlights of the prep school rugby calendar in Scotland, and a competition that we have done well in throughout the past 16 years, winning it on four occasions and being losing finalists on countless others. Sevens is a game which tests you in so many ways: fitness, stamina, bravery, tackling, communication and you cannot afford any weak links in the side, otherwise you end up being exposed on big wide pitches with so much space. However, the good news was that Leo and Chay both made the 10 stone weight limit so the squad assembled up in Crieff on the first Sunday of November, with the leaves turning golden on the trees and the Autumnal sunshine creating a wonderful backdrop for what was to prove another wonderful day for Cargilfield rugby!

      Group Stage

      We faced Loretto, St Mary’s, Belhaven and Ardvreck 2 in the group stages, and our sevens got better and better as each game passed. Normally, we would have had the Loretto 7s in October to prepare for, but with that being cancelled and only a couple of sevens sessions possible during games, I knew we would be a little undercooked this year, but we had covered the basics of keeping the ball, using the width, keeping the ball away from contact and if there is a breakdown, be very aggressive and get the ball away in to space again. In fact, we played some really nice sevens, especially in the Belhaven game when we were tested and had to look after the ball for long periods to stretch the defensive line: we won our group without conceding many tries and never really looked in trouble, so it was through to the semi finals when we would meet our old nemesis, Merchiston once again!

      Semi Final v Merchiston

      We really did play some fantastic sevens here, keeping the ball and exploiting the space out wide with Leo and Chay whilst Milo made inroads in the midfield; our defence was outstanding and we scored lots of tries to make the game safe which allowed us to rest players for the final. It was an excellent team effort and one that filled us with confidence for the Final.

      Final v Belhaven

      Having beaten Belhaven reasonably comfortably in the group stage, the boys were full of confidence heading in the Final at the end of what had been a long and tiring day. However, strange things can happen, and right from the start it was clear that Belhaven meant business as they scored a well worked try right from the kick off, going round the outside; one missed tackle, and that was that. It happened again, and so two tries down after not very long on the clock, we were now really up against it. However, this group of boys then showed what they are made of, and we scored two tries which meant we were back in the game, albeit behind having missed the conversions. The game was on a knife edge and having scored a converted try each, we knew we had to score to win the Final and take the trophy home. It was nerve jangling stuff, but we had nerves of steel as the clock moved in to overtime and in to the last play; we showed lots of patience, keeping the ball alive despite excellent defence from Belhaven, but then Leo came on to a short ball and dived over from short range to win the game and then the whistle blew for full time. Game over, Cargilfield Champions 2021!

      I was hugely proud of every single one of the boys who had worked so hard and played such tremendous rugby over the course of the day. I certainly felt we were the best side there, but hats off to Belhaven who pushed us so hard in the final and who almost had one hand on the trophy being ahead in the last play: we did it the hard way, but to win the 25th Ardvreck 7s was very satisfying indeed and we showed a huge amount of skill and heart in the end to get over the line and win it, having played the best sevens of the day overall.

      Well played, boys! A very special day indeed.

      On a chilly November afternoon the under 10 and under 9 girls took to the hockey pitch for a mixed festival with Fettes, Loretto, and Ardvreck. Split up into mixed teams with the other schools the Cargilfield girls shone as they played with vigour, skill, and confidence. Their determination allowed them to make some great plays and demonstrate their expertise throughout the games. Although they left the pitch a bit colder than when they came on the girls had a wonderful afternoon filled with hockey and new friends.

      We took two Under-10 teams to Merchiston to take part in their annual festival.

      Our A-team played against Loretto, Merchiston and St Mary’s A teams over the course of the afternoon. The first match proved to be the toughest as the boys warmed up to the standard required. Loretto managed to score a couple of tries near the start but the Cargilfield boys raised their defensive game and managed to get themselves back into the match with some marvellous runs from James and Oliver, and leading the defensive effort with some impressive tackling were Arthur and Theo. The matched ended in a narrow 3-4 loss. The second match against Merchiston was a touch-rugby match and the boys kept maintained a magnificent amount of pressure on the opposition to force a 5-1 win. Their final match was a full contact match against St Mary’s. After conceding a simple try in the opening seconds, the boys came back strong to engineer a confident 7-4 win, with excellent running by the whole team, including Arlo and Hamish, who put in excellent performances.

      The B-team also played two contact matches and one touch-rugby match. Their first match was against Fettes A’s, where despite losing overall, they managed to score a couple of marvellous tries against the stronger team. In the second match, they took on Fettes B’s, who they managed to beat with great running and impressive tackles. Finally, they played a touch rugby match against Loretto B’s, losing by a couple of tries but making a fine effort nonetheless.

      Well done to all the boys for commitment and determination.

      We took two Under-10 teams to Merchiston to take part in their annual festival.

      Our A-team played against Loretto, Merchiston and St Mary’s A teams over the course of the afternoon. The first match proved to be the toughest as the boys warmed up to the standard required. Loretto managed to score a couple of tries near the start but the Cargilfield boys raised their defensive game and managed to get themselves back into the match with some marvellous runs from James and Oliver, and leading the defensive effort with some impressive tackling were Arthur and Theo. The matched ended in a narrow 3-4 loss. The second match against Merchiston was a touch-rugby match and the boys kept maintained a magnificent amount of pressure on the opposition to force a 5-1 win. Their final match was a full contact match against St Mary’s. After conceding a simple try in the opening seconds, the boys came back strong to engineer a confident 7-4 win, with excellent running by the whole team, including Arlo and Hamish, who put in excellent performances.

      The B-team also played two contact matches and one touch-rugby match. Their first match was against Fettes A’s, where despite losing overall, they managed to score a couple of marvellous tries against the stronger team. In the second match, they took on Fettes B’s, who they managed to beat with great running and impressive tackles. Finally, they played a touch rugby match against Loretto B’s, losing by a couple of tries but making a fine effort nonetheless.

      Well done to all the boys for commitment and determination.

      Cargilfield 2

      Loretto 4

      The girls enjoyed a nice afternoon with ideal playing conditions. The opposing team had a goalie and not us. As Cargilfield had one extra player the girls were offered to use the opponent’s goalie for half the game and swap with one of our players. They decided to play as a team and play without a goalie. Lara and Emilia worked well in defence, while Nadia, Amenah and Rowan ran after every ball in centre. In the attack we had Lexie, Hattie and Lyla doing a fierce job. In the end, Lexie scored at the very beginning and Amenah followed her. They did not win but it was a good game to play and watch.

      Well done, girls.

      Well done to the nine Cargilfield boys selected to team up with Fettes to represent the Saltires in this year’s representative rugby match which was led at Fettes this afternoon. There was no time for a trial game with Fettes this year, so instead, we selected 8 boys each with one more added when an unfortunate injury befall a Fettes boy. It was a real shame that our Captain of Rugby, Milo, was unable to make it, still awaiting the result of a PCR test – the new normal!  With the WOSPS v Dandylions format being changed in 2020, this was the second year of the new incarnation of something that has been a round since the 1960s, with boys from prep schools all over Scotland coming together to have their first taste of representative rugby.

      The Saltires played the Thistles first (boys from Belhaven, Loretto and St Mary’s) and ran out comfortable winners, but had to play back to back and faced a strong Caledonians outfit (boys from Gordonstoun, Strathallan, Ardvreck, Craigclowan and St Leonard’s). There were a few missed tackles which allowed the opposition to get ahead and then trying to force things, the Caledonians benefitted from a couple of interceptions and it was then hard to fight back.

      The Caledonians then went on to lose to the Thistles and so all three teams won one game and amazingly all three had scored the same number of points so the trophy was shared this year and was presented by former Scotland player and now Edinburgh Head Coach, Mike Blair.

      A super afternoon of rugby.

      13-15

      On a calm and mild afternoon in Musselburgh, a re-vamped U11A team played a fast-paced, competitive yet well-natured game of rugby against Loretto. Both teams played some super rugby with some great off-loads from the tackle area. The break-down area was fiercely competed as both teams looked to turn-over the ball. Some terrific rucking from both teams meant the ball could be recycled and we saw some good passages of play from both teams. In defence the tackling was solid on the whole. A few missed first-time tackles meant another player had to cover, which strained our defensive formation. There were some super tries and all the boys involved looked to enjoy the game. Well played both teams.

      On a calm and mild afternoon in Musselburgh, a re-vamped U11A team played a fast-paced, competitive yet well-natured game of rugby against Loretto. Both teams played some super rugby with some great off-loads from the tackle area. The break-down area was fiercely competed as both teams looked to turn-over the ball. Some terrific rucking from both teams meant the ball could be recycled and we saw some good passages of play from both teams. In defence the tackling was solid on the whole. A few missed first-time tackles meant another player had to cover, which strained our defensive formation. There were some super tries and all the boys involved looked to enjoy the game. Well played both teams.

      Lots of goals scored on Cargilfield’s Gillespie pitch today against Loretto! A strong first half, with Lottie CB, Livia, Emilia and Thalia working well together to attack. Lottie scored an amazing four goals and Thalia scored a fantastic two! Millie and Shriyaa, alongside Scarlett defended our goals really well and Loretto managed to score just two. 6-2 at half time.

      The second half began with a lovely goal from Loretto. However, Thalia, Livia and Shriyaa worked really hard to move the ball forward and with a goal each, Cargilfield had scored three goals in the second half.

      A special well done to Livia in Form 4, who stepped up and played her first U11 game!!

      Final score 9-3. Thank you Loretto for a great game of hockey!

      The boys boarded the bus very excited for a rematch following the 1-0 defeat at home to Merchiston earlier in the term. Unfortunately, the journey was prolonged due to the accident on the bypass which meant not much time to warm up and therefore it did take us a few minutes to get into the game. It was 9-a-side and Leo set up his team accordingly but in the early stages it was all Merchiston. We were very much playing them on the break and Leo brought a great save out of their keeper, who tipped the ball over the bar. Ewan also had a good chance saved but after some good intricate play in midfield, James touched the ball out to Leo who blasted it past the Merchiston keeper. We had a few more chances to make it 2-0 but couldn't quite get the ball under control and the keeper made some more good stops. Cody in our goal didn't have much to do in the first half thanks to our excellent defence with Artie and Zain impressing in particular. However, when one glorious chance fell to the Merchiston striker, Cody made an unbelievable double save to keep us in front at the break.

      The coach, who gets his football knowledge from hours and hours of watching Sky Sports and BT Sport, gave a team talk at half time which consisted of, 'just hoof when in trouble' and 'get stuck in to win the 50/50s'.

      In the second half, Merchiston grew into the game more and our defence was kept busy. Cody produced some confident punches away from the multiple corners that Merchiston won and made another terrific save, diving down low to his left to tip the ball round the post. Again though, we turned defence into attack and after Artie won the ball with a well-timed tackle and spotted the run of Ewan, he played it down the line to the energetic midfielder who played a short pass to Leo. The skipper made a powerful diagonal run with the ball and just as he looked to unleash another fierce shot, he calmly played a disguised reverse pass across the goal to Ewan, who had continued his run ahead, to tap it in. We would have had a third when Ewan was bundled over in the box, however, Chay's penalty, which was a good strike, went straight at the keeper who made a comfortable save.

      Despite some late attempts at goal from the home side, we kept the clean sheet and held on for the win. Victories against our friends at Merchiston don't come around often so this is one that the boys should savour and be proud of the way they played as a team. 

      Well done, boys!

      It was wonderful to have the Upper School and staff back in Chapel together this morning for our annual Service of Remembrance which took place this today.

      We had the honour of welcoming General Alastair Bruce, Governor of Edinburgh Castle and Royal commentator for Sky News, as our preacher and he spoke to us about the importance of remembering and his words really did connect with the congregation.

      One fifth of the 190 former pupils who lost their lives in both World Wars was read out, we stood for two minutes’ silence and Chay played the Last Post and Reveille before the Form 8 Choir brought our service to an end. Afterwards, the Pipe Band performed in Ash Court and the General was full of praise for what had been a very moving morning of Remembrance.

      You can watch the Service here.

      5 good reasons to learn French

      1. A world language

      More than 300 million people speak French on the five continents. The OIF, an international organisation of French-speaking countries, comprises 88 member States and governments. French is the second most widely learned foreign language after English, and the fifth most widely spoken language in the world.

      French is also the only language, alongside English, that is taught in every country in the world. France operates the biggest international network of cultural institutes (see the French Institute in Scotland for instance).

      2. A language for travel

      France is the world’s top tourist destination and attracts more than 87 million visitors a year. The ability to speak even a little French makes it so much more enjoyable to visit Paris and all the regions of France, and offers insights into France’s culture and way of life. French also comes in handy when travelling to French-speaking parts of the world.

      3. A language for learning other languages

      French is a good base for learning other languages, especially Latin languages (Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and Romanian) as well as English, since a significant percentage of English vocabulary is derived from French.

      4. The language of love and reason

      First and foremost, learning French is the pleasure of learning a beautiful, rich, melodious language that is often called the language of love. French is also an analytical language that structures thought and develops critical thinking, which is a valuable skill for discussions and negotiations.

      5. The other language of international relations

      French is both a working language and an official language of the United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and international courts. French is the language of the three cities where the EU institutions are headquartered: Strasbourg, Brussels and Luxembourg.

      It has been a very busy week in the music department as we have been building towards Armistice Day and then our Remembrance Service on Friday when we have had our two choirs performing in public once again. It will be the first time that we have had the whole Upper School in Chapel since the beginning of March 2020, and we are looking forward to our remembering the 190 former pupils who died in both World Wars, and our remembrance Service is always a very special and moving occasion. Well done to all those who have performed in this week's concert, both beginners and more experienced musicians, and thank you, as always to our talented team of teachers. We hope you enjoy it!

      On Armistice Day, just before 11 o'clock, the Upper School came together in Ash Court to remember the 190 former pupils of Cargilfield who died in both World Wars and who made the ultimate sacrifice.We had some prayers, the Form 7 choir sang beautifully and Chay played The Last Post before we stood in respectful silence for two minutes to remember. After the Reveille, Xander brought proceedings to a close by performing Flowers of the Forest on his pipes.Tomorrow, we have our annual Service of Remembrance in Chapel, and we welcome General Alastair Bruce, Governor of Edinburgh Castle, to preach to the children and staff.

      “When you go Home, tell them of us and say, For your Tomorrow, we gave our Today”

      Fettes hosted the 2021 IAPS Hockey Qualifiers for the U11s on Wednesday. We were in a group with Sedbergh, Belhaven and Loretto and began well against the only English side who had some strong girls in the team. Our energy and solid defending when it mattered saw us win our opening game 3-1. We scored a few goals against Belhaven with Isla C at the back post taking most of the chances. Belhaven kept going and credit should go to them for keeping their heads up. In the final pool game, Loretto battled hard in the midfield and it took us a while to get the opening two goals which came in quick succession. Loretto scored one back but by putting some passes together but we went on to score another two to put us in the Semi Final.

      We played Fettes who we hadn’t met on the circuit yet. We started poorly, however, with a well struck shot in the corner. We didn’t panic and within 30 seconds we were back level after a great pass from Miranda to Emilia on the right, allowed the right winger to get around their defence and lay the ball back from the baseline where Savannah rifled the first time shot home. After that, we kept going and didn’t give the host team much of a sight of our goal. Savannah and Miranda played strongly and when the ball fell to Savannah again in the D, she made no mistake to put it past the keeper. Pocket Rocket, Athena P was given the important job of following their best player around the pitch to disrupt the play she did this brilliantly. With a 4-1 win, we were in the final.

      St Mary’s, who had previously beaten us this season, looked like a great unit and given our defeat last time, the Cargilfield girls were determined to get revenge. They set out right from the beginning to play some outstanding hockey. Again, we worked the ball down the right-hand side, this time thanks to Athena L’s excellent passing from deep. Miranda’s late runs into the D were too much for the St Mary’s defence. Savannah, once again, was the scorer of the goals and we shell-shocked the opposition with a 3-0 at the break. Beatrice came on to take over in defence from Valentina who hadn’t put a foot wrong all day at the back. Beatrice made some outstanding block tackles and cleared the danger but when it fell to their right-wing, she sped up into the D and managed to squeeze the ball past Isla in goal. It was only the 3rd goal Isla had let in all day which was incredible given that was in 70 minutes of 7 a side hockey. There was no panic when St Mary’s scored early in the second half to make it 3-1; Athena L once again showed that she can spot the space and played a wonderful diagonal out to Emilia who set up Savannah in what was almost a carbon copy of the first goal we scored in the Semis.

      The girls played some terrific hockey, much admired by the spectators and umpires who commented on the girls’ play throughout the day. As tournament winners, we now head south to Millfield School for the IAPS Finals at the end of the month. Well done, girls!

      The Under 9 squad enjoyed two tough games away to Craigclowan with the A's drawing 5 tries each due to a last minute try scored by Jamie after some fine work from Hamish. The B team went down 4 tries to 3 but there were some great performances with the ball from Max and William in particular and some strong running from Honour. The B team were also very strong in defence as a result of some excellent teamwork.

      With parents watching from the sidelines, Cargilfield U13Bs played Craigclowan at home this week. Although Craigclowan were the first to score, Amalia and Bea each responded with a goal by the end of the first quarter. These two dominated the attack with good passing as they benefitted from the support of Sophia and the wall of defenders. However, the early lead meant that the girls played passively in the second quarter, allowing Craigclowan to score and control possession. The half-time interval gave the girls a chance to regroup and they went to play in a more competitive manner throughout the second half – notably, Emilia Smith who led the defenders well. However, despite this change in attitude and a few additional goals, the momentum Craigclowan gained in the second quarter meant that they were also able to add to the scoreboard. The final result was 4-4, the girls’ closest game this season but by no means a score to be disappointed with.

      Well done to all the girls who travelled away to play against ESMS in Ravelston.

      The A team faced tough opposition who moved the ball quickly and accurately. We fell behind 3-0 in the first half as we struggled to keep up with their pace of play. The second half was more encouraging though and the team held their shape more effectively. Tessa worked hard in defence while Scarlett and Tunrayo covered a lot of the pitch as midfield dynamos.

      The B team were more closely matched and Cargilfield threatened the ESMS goal while also defending resolutely. Nadia and Shriyaa were strong in defence and Nancy showed some strong skills in midfield. It looked as though Cargilfield might sneak the game at the end but a 0-0 draw was pro0bably a fair result in this hard fought match.

      Two creditable team performances. Our thanks to ESMS for their hospitality and for sharing a goalkeeper in both games to help make the games more even.

      leftColBody

      Having played three matches in three days over the weekend, a few weary bodies took to the field up at Craigclowan this afternoon. It was a narrow pitch and with 9 players per side, it was quite a crowded game with not much space to play with. I was impressed with the physicality and commitment from both sides, who entertained the crowds with a competitive and feisty match. We tried to play passing rugby but with not much space, often the only way to go forward was straight ahead and there were lots of strong running from both teams. I was impressed with our tackling on the whole today, with Caspian showing excellent technique and power. Edward, Monty and Rafa were also outstanding in defence. Our rucking and turn-over ball from the tackle area were impressive too, with Harry and Jamie making a number of great turn-overs. Theo and Dexter linked up well and Archie showed his hands are made of glue again by taking some unbelievable catches. Wilfred returned after his Covid-forced absence with aggression and desire. We scored some great tries, re-cycling the ball well and passing through a number of phases. Well done to the boys for grinding out a tough-fought victory.

      leftColBody

      The girls have been working hard in their netball training sessions on Fridays and were excited to welcome our neighbours back for a rematch.

      As so many of us wanted to play, we split into two mixed ability teams. This also allowed everyone an opportunity to work on their position of choice.

      Our Red team took the first centre pass and we quickly took an early lead with both Emily and Lucia scoring. Lottie was excellent in defence and worked with Mille and Cecilia to keep the ball out of the D at the end of the first quarter we were 3 nil ahead.

      The Blue team came on and this time Cramond were ready for us. Their defence was excellent but Rosanna and Millie both scored goals allowing us to keep our advantage. Thalia and Clara worked very well as a team feeding the ball to our shooters. In our defending third both Aglaya and Lotte were superb at intercepting the Cramond passes and were supported by Emilia.

      In the third quarter, back came our Reds and Olivia moved tirelessly around the court creating an effective link of straight line passes down the court from Lottie to Emily. She was well supported by Scarlett whose quick feet kept her Cramond marker on the run. We were much more evenly matched in this quarter with both teams scoring 3 apiece.

      In the final quarter, our Blues returned and Aglaya and Lotte swapped positions. Cramond were determined to scored and did so on the last whistle.

      Final score: Cargilfield 8, Cramond 4

      1stXV beat Sedbergh

      The Ardvreck Sevens is always one of the highlights of the rugby season even more so this year with the Loretto Sevens not taking place and this being the 25th year of this prestigious event. We arrived in high spirits following a wonderfully gutsy, brave and skilful performance on Friday when we defeated a strong and powerful Sedbergh side on Friday.  I was going to write a report about that, and that will follow in a day or two, but thinking back to Friday and our annual visit from our friends down at Sedbergh.

      It was a really tough and physical encounter against our old friends from Cumbria and we were severely tested in all aspects of the game, having to match them physically and work really hard to score. After falling behind to a well worked try in the opening minutes before we had even touched the ball, we settled much better in to our game than we did on Wednesday, going through the phases, committing more men to the breakdown and getting the ball wide in to the outside channels where we had lots of pace and power. The breakdown was hotly contested, but by committing more men, it meant we had much more front foot ball which allowed us to get over the gain line and not play on the back foot which we were guilty of against Merchiston on Wednesday: we tried to play too much rugby if you like, before we had earned the right, such was our desperation to get the ball wide. Today, we played with much more control and scored three tries in reply to Sedbergh’s opening effort which gave us a well deserved lead at half time. However, we should have scored a couple more playing down the slight slope and although their defence was excellent, not to score when just a few yards out was disappointing as we knew what was going to happen 2nd half as the brown wave hit their straps and gathered momentum. To be fair, we did defend really well despite a ferocious onslaught on our line and although they scored two tries, we were organised, we tackled, we won turnovers and kept the penalty count down, all of which frustrated the men in Brown as they looked for the winning score. One tackle in particular stood out as Cody and Cameron bundled their winger in to touch at the corner flag as he was about to score. Tremendous commitment. That, perhaps was the turning point, as we then managed to gain a sense of control in the final 7 or 8 minutes, working our way up in to their 22m and staying there. The forwards were utterly relentless at the ruck, with Xander and Charlie getting crucial turnovers and penalties, which allowed us to run the clock down as we chose to kick at goal, and on his second attempt Conrad put the ball through the posts which was followed by the final whistle, giving us a famous 24-17 win against the mighty men in Brown.

      To be honest, I have rarely been prouder of a group of boys as I was at the final whistle. To bounce back after the disappointment of losing in the final play at Merchiston, a game we really should have won, we showed a huge amount of resilience, guts, commitment and no little skill as we managed the end of the game really well given the tight, tense circumstances. This team is full of leaders, full of boys who leave everything out on the pitch and hats off to you all for what you achieved this afternoon. I have no fingernails left, even though, I actually thought we would not throw this one away and I was proved right. A mighty effort and a wonderful result. Fantastic!

      Right, now on to Ardvreck 7's on Sunday....and what a day that turned out to be!

      The pre-school children have been learning about Guy Fawkes and why we celebrate bonfire night. The children have created the most wonderful fireworks pictures and we even managed to have our very own bonfire in the nursery garden on Friday afternoon.

      Diwali - The children have been learning all about the Hindu and Sikh festival of Diwali. We have been creating all sorts of wonderful rangoli patterns, decorating our hand with henna patterns, dressing up in bright clothes and talking about the story of 'Rama and Sita' and why people, when celebrating Diwali, use lights to celebrate.

      More hotly anticipated than new John Lewis Christmas advert, we are delighted to share our brand new school film!

      We feel this captures the essence of what life is like here at Cargilfield from a child's eye view. Cargilfield is a very special place, where children can thrive and set their own pace, and where everyday is an adventure.

      Please share widely with friends and family.

      Welcome back, and it is a pleasure to introduce our first mini concert of the second half of term! Well done to all our performers who have continued to practise hard over half term and once again, it has been lovely to listen to pieces from children right across the school, from those taking their first tentative steps performing right up to more experienced girls and boys in Form 8. As always, a big thank you to our fantastic team of music teachers who are now beginning to build up towards Christmas and there will soon be slightly bells ringing in the music school!

      We had our termly Book Swap Shop today where children brought in some favourite books from home and swapped them for books others had brought in. There was lots of excited chatter on the library and then time to read their new books. Thank you to Mrs Lyall for organising a fabulous event!

      We had our termly Book Swap Shop today where children brought in some favourite books from home and swapped them for books others had brought in. There was lots of excited chatter on the library and then time to read their new books. Thank you to Mrs Lyall for organising a fabulous event!

      Sylvan, Judith and the headmaster joined the whole of P4 from Cramond Primary and members of the congregation of Cramond Kirk to help plant a lovely new oak tree and unveil a plaque to accompany it. The tree will mark a place of remembrance for those in Cramond who have lost a loved one from COVID-19 and was one of the suggestions that came from the Imagine Cramond Project in which we all took part. The planting of a tree - which should outlive us all and help to provide a better environment for our community - seemed a particularly appropriate memorial, especially in this week of COP 26.

      We played four 10 minute quarters today with as squad of 12 players who were rotated round each quarter. There was some great play throughout and we scored early on through Isla C. Ardvreck came battling back and managed to squeeze one in at the near post but Lottie soon got us back in front with a tap in after getting herself in a nice position at the back post. Olivia made some great runs down the right hand side and kept out wide very well. She looked to link up with Lottie who worked hard in front of goal. We were passing the ball around nicely and as the game went on, our pace of passing picked up. Valentina who was our captain today, defended really well and stuck close to the last player in attack.

      On a perfect late autumn afternoon our 2nd XV made the short trip over to Colinton to play our neighbours Merchiston. The Cramond men started slowly and after dropping off a number of tackles allowed Merchiston to seize the initiative. Thereafter, the Cramond men began to adjust their tackle height and aggression levels to begin making inroads into the Merchiston attack, this in turn led to opportunities taken ably by both Zain and Sylvan and a deserved 12-7 lead at the break.

      The second half was again an even affair, with Merchiston again starting brightly and scoring early in the game. Two further scores followed for Merchiston, but this was by no means to lack of desire or courage, more a lack of cutting edge and being clinical in our attack. I was thrilled with the endeavour and conduct of the boys. Onwards and upwards with a big game against Sedbergh on Friday.

      Final Score: Merchiston 31 – Cargilfield 17

      POTM: Oli and Zain

      Try Scorers: Sylvan, Zak, Zain

      Cons: Archie x1

      leftColBody

      The Under-10s hosted Merchiston on Wednesday. A last-minute change of circumstances meant that the match needed to be a game of touch rugby but the boys adapted their frame of mind quickly to make a positive start to the contest.

      From the outset the Cargilfield boys worked the ball across the width of the pitch, whilst looking to build some forward momentum at the same time. They soon worked out that by passing the ball quickly out wide, space was created on the opposite wing, which they could then pass the ball back into. The majority of their opportunities were manufactured in this manner.

      In their defensive duties, the team worked hard, quickly closing down the attempts of the opposition to gain ground and their wonderful display of defensive determination meant their opponents backwards on most occasions. The Merchiston team did manage to exploit some space out wide on occasion to score a couple of tries but Cargifield enjoyed the majority of possession to score 5 tries of their own.

      Well done to both teams for a fantastic effort!

      leftColBody

      Two talented young teams of rugby players met today for a fast-paced and exciting game of rugby. Both teams showed a lot of improvement from their last game a couple of months ago at the start of the season. There was more shape and organisation to the game, with some committed running and tackling from both teams. The game ebbed and flowed throughout with Merchiston scoring the first few tries. The Cargilfield boys fought their way back into the game in the first half and managed to score a number of well-worked tries. In the second half, Cargilfield started strongly scoring a couple of quick tries but the Merchi boys showed a lot of determination to force their way back into the game and scoring enough tries to end the game with a draw.

      All the boys played well and there were good signs of improvement. Some thunderous tackles from Caspian and Rafa set the standard in defence, which was good on the whole. Our rucking and jackling work was very good today and we won a number of turn-overs, particularly from Monty. In attack, everyone wanted to run with the ball, which is understandable but sometimes we ran too far when passing would have been a better option. Overall, it was a good game of rugby and it was great to see the boys enjoying themselves. Well played.

      leftColBody

      It was sunny but cold on Cargilfield’s Gillespie pitch. Our two U9 Girls’ hockey team, the Cheetahs and Lions, were ready to play Belhaven’s Blue and Red teams.

      The Cheetahs, Beatrice (C), Florence, Helena, Jemima, Glory and Livia, worked really well together in both of their games and dominated play. There was some fantastic passing. Collectively, they scored a total of 17 goals to Belhaven’s 1.

      Similarly, The Lions; Alice (C), Clara, Isla M, Zinnia, Praise and Alexandra were triumphant in both of their games. The girls were calling each other’s names and the combined score of their two matches was 14-3.

      Well done girls!

      introTextLearning about Prime Numbers
      leftColBody

      Of Prime Importance…

      One of the concepts the children are introduced to in Form 5 or 6 is that of prime numbers.

      (There is a glossary of terms at the bottom of this blog).

      So, the first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7 and 11

      At Cargilfield, children usually start to work with prime numbers in Form 5 or 6. Once they have been introduced to them, they will learn to express other numbers as a product of their prime factors, e.g. 100 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 or 2² × 5²

      One method of doing this is to use the factor tree, sometimes called the ‘cherry tree’. A number is gradually broken up until the prime numbers at its root are found and circled.

      For example, express 840 as a product of its prime factors:

      E3FDD786 9E88 474F B185 32C5644E8EFB

      840 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7

      840 = 2³ × 3 × 5 × 7

      Another method is called the ‘ladder’. This method is useful for numbers that do not as easily lend themselves to being broken up using mental arithmetic.

      The way this works is a number is divided by prime numbers only until a final quotient of 1 is reached.

      For example, express 45375 as a product of its prime factors:

      44C3DEA9 7190 4A3A 8669 5571B5048253

      45375 = 3 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 11 × 11

      45375 = 3 × 5³ × 11²

      Knowing the product of prime factors of a number has a wide range of applications.

      Here are some ways the children might use the product of prime factors:

      Given that 784 = 2⁴ × 7² and 1638 = 2 × 32 × 7 × 13, answer the following questions.

      • a) Is 1638 a multiple of 9? Yes, because 3×3 can be found in the product of prime factors of 1638
      • b) What is the largest odd factor of 784? Multiply the odd prime factors only: 7 × 7 = 49
      • c) What is the highest common factor of 784 and 1638? 2 × 7 is common to both numbers, therefore 14 is the highest common factor.
      • d) Which of 784 and 1638 is a perfect square? 784, because it has an even number of each of its primes.
      • e) Work out the square root of 784. Separate the product of prime factors into two equal groups and multiply out one of the groups: 2 × 2 × 7 = 28
      • f) What is the lowest common multiple of 784 and 1638? Multiply out the higher quantity of each prime: 2⁴ × 3² × 7² × 13 = 91 728

      Whatever the level of application of product of prime factors, one essential ingredient to developing the children’s confidence is a fluent knowledge of times tables, not just the multiplication (7 × 9 = 63) but also the division too (63 ÷ 9 = 7).

      Glossary of Terms

      factor - A number that divides another number exactly. E.g. 6 is a factor of 18

      multiple - A number which is part of another number's times table. E.g. 42 is a multiple of 7

      prime number - A number which has exactly two factors. The number one and itself.

      highest common factor - It is the largest factor common to a set of numbers. E.g. The HCF of 12 and 18 is 6

      lowest common multiple - It is the smallest multiple common to a set of numbers. E.g. The LCM of 4 and 6 is 12

      quotient - a result obtained by dividing one quantity by another.

      • c) What is the highest common factor of 784 and 1638? 2 × 7 is common to both numbers, therefore 14 is the highest common factor.
      • d) Which of 784 and 1638 is a perfect square? 784, because it has an even number of each of its primes.
      • e) Work out the square root of 784. Separate the product of prime factors into two equal groups and multiply out one of the groups: 2 × 2 × 7 = 28
      • f) What is the lowest common multiple of 784 and 1638? Multiply out the higher quantity of each prime: 2⁴ × 3² × 7² × 13 = 91 728

      Whatever the level of application of product of prime factors, one essential ingredient to developing the children’s confidence is a fluent knowledge of times tables, not just the multiplication (7 × 9 = 63) but also the division too (63 ÷ 9 = 7).

      Of Prime Importance…

      One of the concepts the children are introduced to in Form 5 or 6 is that of prime numbers.

      (There is a glossary of terms at the bottom of this blog).

      So, the first few prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7 and 11

      At Cargilfield, children usually start to work with prime numbers in Form 5 or 6. Once they have been introduced to them, they will learn to express other numbers as a product of their prime factors, e.g. 100 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5 or 2² × 5²

      One method of doing this is to use the factor tree, sometimes called the ‘cherry tree’. A number is gradually broken up until the prime numbers at its root are found and circled.

      For example, express 840 as a product of its prime factors:

      E3FDD786 9E88 474F B185 32C5644E8EFB

      840 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 7

      840 = 2³ × 3 × 5 × 7

      Another method is called the ‘ladder’. This method is useful for numbers that do not as easily lend themselves to being broken up using mental arithmetic.

      The way this works is a number is divided by prime numbers only until a final quotient of 1 is reached.

      For example, express 45375 as a product of its prime factors:

      44C3DEA9 7190 4A3A 8669 5571B5048253

      45375 = 3 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 11 × 11

      45375 = 3 × 5³ × 11²

      Knowing the product of prime factors of a number has a wide range of applications.

      Here are some ways the children might use the product of prime factors:

      Given that 784 = 2⁴ × 7² and 1638 = 2 × 32 × 7 × 13, answer the following questions.

      • a) Is 1638 a multiple of 9? Yes, because 3×3 can be found in the product of prime factors of 1638
      • b) What is the largest odd factor of 784? Multiply the odd prime factors only: 7 × 7 = 49
      • c) What is the highest common factor of 784 and 1638? 2 × 7 is common to both numbers, therefore 14 is the highest common factor.
      • d) Which of 784 and 1638 is a perfect square? 784, because it has an even number of each of its primes.
      • e) Work out the square root of 784. Separate the product of prime factors into two equal groups and multiply out one of the groups: 2 × 2 × 7 = 28
      • f) What is the lowest common multiple of 784 and 1638? Multiply out the higher quantity of each prime: 2⁴ × 3² × 7² × 13 = 91 728

      Whatever the level of application of product of prime factors, one essential ingredient to developing the children’s confidence is a fluent knowledge of times tables, not just the multiplication (7 × 9 = 63) but also the division too (63 ÷ 9 = 7).

      introTextFantastic charities to support this year!
      leftColBody

      The charities for this academic year have been chosen, with three fantastic organisations being the focal point of our fundraising.

      Firstly, the Friends of Cargilfield chose Kids Love Clothes, an initiative founded in late 2009. This charity was set up when it became apparent that there was a real and growing need for a service that not only re-uses clothing but avoids the ever-increasing landfill sites. Each bag weighs around 3.5kg and are themselves made from recycled material and are fully recyclable. Nothing donated is wasted – what isn’t used is passed on to other charities and organisations. The very small amount of donated clothing that just can’t be reworn is sent to Rag Bag for recycling.

      Secondly, the Pre-Prep have chosen “Riding for the Disabled” (RDA). The horses of this charity have benefitted the lives of over 25,000 disabled children and adults. With fun activities like riding and carriage driving, it provides therapy, fitness, skills development and opportunities for achievement. RDA is an inclusive and diverse organisation that welcomes people with physical and learning disabilities as well as challenges such as autism.

      Lastly, the Upper School chose the Tailor Ed Foundation. This is a charity that has been supporting families with a child with autism since 2009. It was set up to provide service for families who were struggling to support their child to gain the everyday skills they needed for daily life – skills that many people often take for granted.

      Following on from our Harvest Festival before half term, we were delighted that the charity Freshstart, an Edinburgh based charity who help homeless people make a home.  It was a charity particularly close to Dr Barr's heart, our former school chaplain and mInister at Cramond Kirk, who set up the charity.  Thank you to everyone who provided donations.

      Cargilfield where everyday is an adventure

      Welcome to Cargilfield! We hope this short film gives you a glimpse of what life is like for the girls and boys at our school. We would love to welcome you in person to tour Cargilfield and explain more fully exactly what makes a Cargilfield education so special and so different. Please get in touch with Fiona Craig, our Registrar if you would like to find out more; her email address is [email protected] or you can telephone her on 0131 336 2207.
