With our early return after the summer holidays causing various fixture date changes, added to Storm Ali which postponed last week’s Fettes fixture, this first match of the season has been a long time in coming! It is going to be a very busy term of rugby for the 1stXV with 14 matches, two sevens tournaments and the tour to Yorkshire all to pack in before the end of term, and it is always good to get the first game under our belt to get the season up and running.

Well, after four weeks’ hard work out on the training field, the boys were champing at the bit, and I have been really impressed by the commitment, skill level and desire from everyone with a number of boys forcing their way in to the team through their level of performance in training. It has been good to see and having such a fierce competition for places bodes well for the rest of the season.

Dollar are always a tough side through large numbers and a long rugby tradition, so it was going to be a very difficult opening fixture; added to this were the new Age Grade Law Variations introduced by the SRU, something we had been getting to grips with since the start of term!

Right from the off, on what was a mild Autumn afternoon, we set our stall out to play attacking free flowing rugby, looking to get the ball out wide whenever possible and use our fast runners through the outside channels. This we did try to do, especially from set piece when the Dollar backs were behind the off side line, but it was more difficult from the breakdown when they were up very fast indeed; however, we took really good options, with Max showing an impressive calmness at 10, and VJ and Ramsay linking well in the centres. Our off loading game worked well, with the forwards keeping the ball alive and pushing the Dollar boys back defensively; certainly the new tackle laws helped us in that with no targeting the ball now, the ball is kept in play for longer, and we kept hold of the ball for long periods, with around 70% possession.

rightColBody

Despite falling behind by two tries twice during the match, I still always thought we would win! We controlled the game, and three of their tries we gifted to them – a bit of first game inexperience – which made the score line much closer than it should have been; that said, their very fast winger could almost have scored every time he received the ball, and only two last ditch tackles from Fergus stopped him. If ever a tackle won a game, it was these two efforts from Fergus!

The forwards were outstanding. We looked after the ball, secured fast ruck ball and with a more rigorously policed off side line, our backs really will look dangerous with Ramsay exploiting the holes created by VJ and our fast wingers – there were moments of outstanding rugby for a game so early in the season and the sense of team spirit and not wanting to give up was there for all to see…..much of this came from Todd, the skipper, and he marshalled his troops superbly today, leading form the front and showing that never say die spirit. We wanted it more than they did in the end, and scored the winning try a couple of minutes from the full time whistle, but it was well deserved and the reaction of the boys at the end said it all.

It was a fantastic game of U13 rugby and wins against Dollar are rare indeed. I have not witnessed many better in my 20 years running a prep school 1stXV, and the boys can take real credit for their performance and they way that they all worked so hard for each other. I am excited about the challenges which lie ahead, and with the Belhaven and Fettes matches next week, we shall be tested again!

Well played, boys! A terrific start to the season.

Under the expert tutelage of Bruce Walker, children at Cargilfield have been learning to tie flies for over 10 years, and to see so many enthusiastic children head off to see him on Thursday evenings shows that this old pastime remains very popular here.

A loyal band of avid followers enjoy listening to Bruce’s musings on everything and anything, a true polymath, and the delicate dexterity on display, selecting feathers and threads to create a nymph, then a mayfly, or a “monkey” tube fly is wonderful to see.

Just one of over 40 activities on after supper throughout the week here at Cargilfield.

As part of our Autumn topic the Nursery have been using our senses to discover more about our garden and wildlife that we have here. We had noticed that a lot of birds come to eat the worms we have. The children decided that we needed to put food out to attract more birds. As a responsive activity we made bird feeders to hang up in our garden for them. We are now going to watch to see what new birds may arrive here over the next few weeks.

U9As beat St Mary’s

The Under 9As were very excited to be playing their first away match and on such an enormous pitch! It was by far the biggest we had ever played on. I advised them to try to hit strong and long passes and was delighted when they did just that. Cargilfield went on the attack straight away and there so many girls in the D we were not sure if the final touch had come from Bea or Lucy, but we had scored! Bea scored a second and Issy our captain was unlucky not to score. We were putting a lot of pressure on the St May’s goal. We were equally dominant in the second half but St Marys did have some fine moments and demonstrated some lovely dribbling skills and good ball control. Issy scored a fine goal with Bea and Maddie following suit. I was pleased to see that there was good team work with particularly Lucy, Maddie and Esme putting in long passes to set up goals. Amalia and Lyla were very reliable in defence and Athena worked very hard running all round the pitch. Final score Cargilfield 5 St Marys 0.

U9Bs beat St Mary’s

The Under 9Bs had a fun match against St Mary’s at Tweedbank this afternoon. The girls rotated throughout the match and it was lovely to see them play in a variety of positions. Savannah was man of the match and ran her socks off playing particularly in attack. Her tenacity paid off and she was rewarded with two goals not long before half time. St Mary’s came back into the match and scored a lovely goal just before the half time whistle. The second half started off at an equally fast pace and our defenders had to make some good tackles. Hattie, Tessa and Nadia all held up play well and it was lovely to see them try hard to get the ball wide and away from the opposition. Isabella and Savannah linked up well and some great passing between the two girls resulted in Isabella scoring two goals. Well done to both teams who seemed to thoroughly enjoy the afternoon!

Won 7 tries to 6

Having missed out on their match against Fettes last week due to Storm Ali, the boys were keen to play Dollar at home. The match was a good spectacle to watch, with end to end action and plenty of good play all around. Both teams were equally matched and spent most of the match neck and neck, each trying to outscore the other. Cargilfield managed to edge the tie in the second half with some good tackling and team play. I was pleased with how the boys played together as a team and supported each other in defence and attack. Their tackling was generally good but a few needing to remember ‘Shoulder Boulder’ as they engage in tackling. An area that I would like them to work on in training next week is using the space on a pitch and not clumping together too much.

Well done, boys!

Won 7 tries to 6

Having missed out on their match against Fettes last week due to Storm Ali, the boys were keen to play Dollar at home. The match was a good spectacle to watch, with end to end action and plenty of good play all around. Both teams were equally matched and spent most of the match neck and neck, each trying to outscore the other. Cargilfield managed to edge the tie in the second half with some good tackling and team play. I was pleased with how the boys played together as a team and supported each other in defence and attack. Their tackling was generally good but a few needing to remember ‘Shoulder Boulder’ as they engage in tackling.

The 2nds had a brilliant match this week against St Mary’s, with an overall super display of skill and a fantastic show of stamina and determination. Straight off the mark the girls could see there was a fight ahead as St Mary’s portrayed a strong attacking side and good use of their mid fielders. However, Laura, Alannah and Hannah made a superb unit throughout the match and this quickly showed with a goal in the first 5 minutes. Rosanna played the ball wide with a succession of successful sweeps in defence allowing our players to move the ball up field. Flora played fantastically this week, and was a strong, determined and reliable Captain who continually led by example in defence throughout the game. Catherine was also a key part of defence this week, stopping a series of plays from the St Mary’s team and then executing a series of lovely sweeps wide to get play back for Cargilfield. Alannah continued to play well in attack and scored another goal with the help of Clemmie just before half time.

After the break St Mary’s came back fighting and scored a goal after many shots at Caitlin. The play went from end to end with both schools attacking and defending well. Laura scored her 2nd goal and this was quickly followed by another from Alannah after a period of expert passing and teamwork between Laura, Alannah and Hannah.
The match finished as 4 – 2 to Cargilfield and was a fitting result from all the hard work displayed by all girls on the team.

A fantastic explosive start from St Mary’s caught us on the back foot this week and Amy was forced to make an incredible save within the first two minutes. St Mary’s continued to pile on the pressure and their hard worked resulted in a goal. It was clear at this point that it was going to be a very good game and challenge for all girls. We began to settle a bit and we won a short corner which was well defended by St Mary’s. We quickly won another short quickly was again defended well by St Mary’s and the play broke swiftly into our attacking D where luckily Amy saved. Amelia worked the ball well from defence to Emma L, who distributed it to Flora who crossed it into Saphira and scored the first of our goals. St Mary’s looked a little unsettled by this point and Sophie had some fantastic individual play and she scored to make the score 2 -1, to us. Katie played the ball wide, creating opportunities for the girls and this is something that was particularly effective. St Mary’s had an immediate break with two shots on goals but luckily for us, missed both times.

Both schools started strong in the second half, and a foul in the D from us led to a short corner for St Mary’s which they scored from. With the game at 2 all, there was all to play for and the game went back and forth with some super saving from Amy and the St Mary’s goal keeper. Izzy scored after a bit of a scrappy attacking period in the 25 and was unlucky not to score again minutes later. Izzy and Sophie linked particularly well and a super goal from Sophie quickly followed. Our defence of Ellie, Amelia and Emma L really took control of the game at this point and it was fantastic to see them swing the ball confidently around the defence, which is something we have been working on this week. Ellie had a strong break from defence into attack and crossed the ball into the circle but we didn’t manage to score. St Mary’s piled on the pressure for the last two minutes and it took some great defending from Ellie to stop St Mary’s making a final play for a goal.

v St Mary’s Melrsoe Win 1-0

It was a windy game today at Peffermill. Unfortunately Annika lost the toss and St Mary’s chose the centre pass. However, Cargilfield were quick to gain possession of the ball and got into St Mary’s D quickly. The girls needed to be stronger as soon as they got into the D to confidently score goals. Annika, Famke and Isabella and Amelia worked brilliantly as a team, communicating and passing the ball successfully. Lottie used some excellent skill to dribble past the St Mary’s girl to pass to Mariella who then dribbled the ball straight into the D. The St Mary’s team managed to save this but she didn’t give up and confidently scored the only goal of the match. Judith and Sophia stopped the ball as soon as St Mary’s entered the Cargilfield D. Judith used the width of the pitch to her advantage. A great second game of the season.

v St Mary’s, Melrose Win 5-0

The girls have clearly been listening during training because they use lots of the skills they have been learning to help score them goals during this match. Francesca was confident to take the ball into St Mary’s D early on in the game. She hit the ball to score a strong first goal. Matilda and Georgia helped to set up Francesca’s two other goals. Lulu and Poppy made several attempts in the first half, and focused their concentration on the accuracy of their hits to score two goals in the second half. Iona, Annabella and Ruby worked brilliantly in defence. Iona ran far up the pitch and cleared the ball wide to stop St Mary’s getting into the Cargilfield D. A great game with some great team work. We will continue to work on communication! Well done girls.

This was such a close game today that neither side went more than 2 tries up in our end to end match against Dollar this afternoon. Strong running from both sides and many missed tackles meant it was almost as high scoring as a game of basketball but both sides improved their defences in the second half. There was some lovely running and passing of the ball from Dollar who spread the ball wide to their wingers who had pace to burn which we couldn’t cope with. We took our opportunities reasonably well but were lacking that composure on the ball and often decided to take that extra yard without releasing players either side of us. Our play was a bit scrappy and we must work on keeping our shape in attack and off-loading or passing at the correct time. We kept up with the visiting side due to some tired tackling from them and our side-stepping and avoiding of contact was good.

rightColBody

When Dollar went 8-7 up with 3 minutes to go, it was going to take a great piece of play to get something out of the game. Our passing began to improve as we looked to get the ball wide more quickly. Rory, who was outstanding today, scored in the corner before setting up the winning try with a wonderfully timed pass to his captain, Hugo. He moved the ball forward and then off-loaded to Cody who ran in from 20 metres. Dollar had one chance to try to get the draw but a superb tackle and then a clearance kick to touch meant that we just scraped over the line.

Hugo led the team superbly well throughout, conducting himself terrifically and encouraging others but man of the match was Rory for his all-round play both in attack and defence.

We kept up with the visiting side due to some tired tackling from them and our side-stepping and avoiding of contact was good.

When Dollar went 8-7 up with 3 minutes to go, it was going to take a great piece of play to get something out of the game. Our passing began to improve as we looked to get the ball wide more quickly. Rory, who was outstanding today, scored in the corner before setting up the winning try with a wonderfully timed pass to his captain, Hugo. He moved the ball forward and then off-loaded to Cody who ran in from 20 metres. Dollar had one chance to try to get the draw but a superb tackle and then a clearance kick to touch meant that we just scraped over the line.

Hugo led the team superbly well throughout, conducting himself terrifically and encouraging others but man of the match was Rory for his all-round play both in attack and defence.

It was a great pleasure to welcome Mr Peter Green, Headmaster of Rugby School, to preach in Chapel this morning for what was his fifth visit to Cargilfield!
He spoke about the uniqueness of all of us and how none of us have to try and copy others or try to be something we aren’t. We should just look to be ourselves.
Thank you for coming to visit us, and it is lovely to have such a strong connection with Rugby with so many old boys and girls currently there.

The cast of The War of Jenkins’ Ear, that had performed so memorably at this year’s Fringe Festival in August, was reunited for one final time for a charity performance down near Wellington College, in Berkshire. Although some of our cast members, now at new schools, were unable to take part, Fred, Quin and Edward headed south to be part of the joint Eagle House and Cargilfield production.

Once again, and in front of a large full house, all the children performed magnificently, retelling the Michael Morpurgo story with great sensitivity and real flair. A terrific show and one which the Cargilfield contingent that made its way south thoroughly enjoyed! Well done, boys!

The cast of The War of Jenkins’ Ear, that had performed so memorably at this year’s Fringe Festival in August, was reunited for one final time for a charity performance down near Wellington College, in Berkshire. Although some of our cast members, now at new schools, were unable to take part, Fred, Quin and Edward headed south to be part of the joint Eagle House and Cargilfield production.

Once again, and in front of a large full house, all the children performed magnificently, retelling the Michael Morpurgo story with great sensitivity and real flair. A terrific show and one which the Cargilfield contingent that made its way south thoroughly enjoyed! Well done, boys!

It is always lovely to hear of academic successes of former pupils. Huge congratulations to Alexander, now at Glenalmond College, for winning an organ scholarship and a place to read Mathematics at St Catherine’s College at Cambridge University. Well done from all of us at Cargilfield!

leftColBody

All the Form 5 boys headed to ESMS this afternoon for some U10 rugby matches. It was great to have all the boys playing together and we mixed them all up into 3 balanced teams. Both schools played some superb rugby; they looked to off-load the ball at the right time to keep the ball moving and this allowed all six teams to score lots of tries. Our tackling was ferocious at times but it was frustrating that after the tackle you cannot just pick up the ball. We are still getting used to the new trial laws but they boys adapted well and looked to force the opposition wide in order to tackle them into touch so we could win back possession. It was a slippy ball after lots of rain at the start of the first game but everyone coped remarkably well and there were very few handling errors. We look forward to welcoming ESMS to Cargilfield later in the season.

Well done to all 21 boys who played today. The conditions were not great but you showed a lot of determination and commitment to succeed.

A very busy second day at La Grand’Ferme in France for Form 7. Up at 8 for fabulous double chocolate breakfast which was very popular. Next up it was lessons in French, an opportunity to fine tune circus skills and a chance to bake some French bread, only spoken French allowed. There was a Bbq lunch served indoors due to wind and rain but much appreciated. Fun and games in the rain before A wonderful dinner including l’escargots for the brave before puzzles and quiz. Packing up now ready to depart tomorrow but think we might stay!! Au revoir!!

A wonderful first day at La Grand’Ferme for Form 7! Up at 8 for delicious baguettes and hot chocolate, with all conversation in French! Then we headed to Mont Saint Michel and walked the ramparts in the wind and rain. We listened to the history of the island en francais and then climbed to the top. After that, we shopped until we dropped, in French of course.

We wrapped up warm for a picnic lunch before heading to the goat farm. There was an interesting tour of the farm before tasting the cheese and milking the goats. Then back to the pad for lasagne and birthday cake. Bonne anniversaire Annabella and Saphira!!

A demain!

introTextA few thoughts on the teaching of Maths
image/cms/resources/58820029-a375-42d9-98b1-3d14db7b4e3c.jpg
imageAltMaths
leftColBody

Your memories of Maths at school may well include standing in front of the class reciting times tables. Mine certainly do. When teaching Maths, that is the last thing I want to do. At Cargilfield, our aim is to develop and embed a fluency, creating a deeper knowledge and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts.

Maths is not simply about the classroom or times tables – it is immersed in our daily lives. And whatever your thoughts on the subject, everyone has the ability to harness it in one way or another. There is a common misconception that you are either “good” or “bad” at Maths, but Mathematics is entirely logical: there is no mysterious magic or trickery involved. I so often hear “well I was no good at Maths at school”. Funnily enough, I wasn’t confident in Maths until the age of 12, when it all clicked into place. I went on to study Maths in my later years at school and now I have a strong passion for teaching the subject!

Even though most of us rely on technology these days to do a calculation, you still need to be able to choose the correct operation (multiply, divide, add or subtract) to tackle the problem at hand, and mental arithmetic is still a constant in daily life. For example, working out a 20% discount. Your brain follows a process: 20% is the same as one-fifth, so you divide by 5, then subtract your answer from the original price. Others might divide by 10 then multiply by 2 to work out the saving. Without being conscious of it, you are using Maths. In fact, your first thought of the day may well be a mathematical one when you open your eyes and look at your alarm clock.

rightColBody

What might be second nature to you is an entirely new way of thinking for your child. However, with the right mindset, access to different ways of learning and the opportunity to make mistakes, anything is possible. My favourite quote is by Albert Einstein: “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” Making mistakes is part of the learning process in Maths. This is an important lesson to teach children as they work through problems and more challenging questions. This skill can also be applied throughout life. How dull would life be if we never pushed ourselves for fear of failure?

I was very surprised to hear from the Form 7 and 8 STEM workshop that by 2022 it’s expected that the UK will be short of 2 million engineers. This type of job requires a wide set of skills, one of which is Maths. If every child realises they can use Maths in their daily lives and understand that it is not only for the classroom, then we will be helping future generations open up new opportunities when they become adults.

Which is why, when explaining new Maths concepts to the children, I like to take a leaf out of American mathematician Stan Gudder’s book: “The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple.”

This week P2 had an exciting trip to Craigmillar Castle. On our arrival we were met by two groups of P7 children from Castle View Primary School. One group were the ‘object handlers’ and our huge thanks to them for showing us some of the artefacts that Lord Preston and his household used when they resided in the castle in the 1600’s. The other group comprised Lord Simon Preston himself and members of his household. They took us on a wonderful tour around the castle leading us into the splendid banqueting hall where we were serenaded by two of the Lady’s maids singing “Greensleeves”. We were taken up winding staircases to the roof of the keep where we viewed the ‘p’ pond and then stepped down into the depths of the castle where we were crammed into a dark, damp dungeon. Our wonderful guides helped to bring Craigmillar Castle alive and royally entertained us all!

This week P2 had an exciting trip to Craigmillar Castle. On our arrival we were met by two groups of P7 children from Castle View Primary School. One group were the ‘object handlers’ and our huge thanks to them for showing us some of the artefacts that Lord Preston and his household used when they resided in the castle in the 1600’s. The other group comprised Lord Simon Preston himself and members of his household. They took us on a wonderful tour around the castle leading us into the splendid banqueting hall where we were serenaded by two of the Lady’s maids singing “Greensleeves”. We were taken up winding staircases to the roof of the keep where we viewed the ‘p’ pond and then stepped down into the depths of the castle where we were crammed into a dark, damp dungeon. Our wonderful guides helped to bring Craigmillar Castle alive and royally entertained us all!

A pleasure to welcome Tom Mapp, the Director of Sport at Fettes College, and Ben, an old boy of Cargilfield, for our Wednesday lecture this afternoon!.

Tom spoke about the importance of sporting values and engendering a life long love for sport, things far more important than winning. Ben then spoke passionately about his own sporting journey from his days at a Cargilfield through to representing Fettes at the highest level in rugby and cricket, as well as talking about the sporting opportunities available to all children at Fettes, whatever your ability. It was a real pleasure to see him back at Cargilfield!

It was a terrific talk, much enjoyed by all of the children, and we look forward to seeing Mr Mapp again in the future, hopefully refereeing the rearranged Fettes fixtures which fell foul to the storm today!

Tuesday break time sees a flood of children in Forms 4 and 5 to Mrs Webber’s room where they get a chance to spend time working hard at their times tables, often working in pairs and using the iPads. I wonder why there are so many keen mathematicians wanting to spend their free time learning yet more Maths….? Perhaps it is the fact they they get a Freddo and some delicious hot chocolate to help them concentrate on their times table learning? May be….!

introTextCreativity through play in the Nursery.
image/cms/resources/photo-12-09-2018-10-37-43.jpg
imageAltNursery
leftColBody

It always amazes me how much children learn from each other; their peers, siblings and friends. However, I think as adults we also sometimes forget just how much ‘learning’ happens through play! In the nursery we are given daily reminders of the important role that play gives the children as they grow and develop and how pivotal it is to their learning. In the nursery here at Cargilfield, the children have been learning about woodlands and woodland animals and it is incredible to see how much of the children’s learning has been; developed, extended and consolidated through their play.

We see examples of this every day in all sorts of wonderful ways, a few of which I have highlighted here:

All sorts of fantastic art work and den building have taken place over the last few weeks where the children have been able to use their imagination and problem solving skills to create something wonderful. These types of play scenarios are crucial in developing the children’s imagination, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Creativity through play has also been shown in many different contexts this term. The children have created their own self-portraits, made woodland art pictures and scavenged for items to make their own woodland crowns to give just a few examples. These sorts of activities are so important to help brain development in early childhood as they promote cognitive, social and emotional development aswell as helping to develop a range of multi-sensory skills.

rightColBody

The sand and water areas in the nursery have been very popular this term as the children make and test their hypotheses, stretch their imagination and explore their senses through these different mediums. They have been encouraged to lead their own learning to help them develop their physical, cognitive and social skills in a variety of ways. Sand and water have provided the ultimate ‘blank canvas’ to enable this to take place.

The children have already been engaging in the nursery allotment over the last few weeks; planting pumpkin seeds and thinking of ways in which we can help the seeds grow and what we can make/do with the pumpkins once they have grown. Gardening is a fantastic experience which enables the children to discover, learn and explore their natural surroundings. The children are leading the learning in this instance; deciding what we plant, how we might help the seeds to grow and what we want to do with the vegetables which will grow i.e use them to make snack each week in nursery.

Role play and creative drama has also played an important role in the children’s learning so far this term. It is through this type of play that the children are extending their understanding of community, culture and the wider world as they take on different characters in play and learn to empathise and understand the feelings of others as they ‘step’ in to their shoes. We have had some wonderful ‘role play’ so far this term with the children using masks of woodland animals as a prompt to ‘become’ the animal and then searching for food and making houses through their play.

So, when we take a step back and consider ‘How do we learn best?’ let’s not forget about the crucial role that play contributes to a child’s learning and development, something which we are reminded of in the nursery every single day.

It always amazes me how much children learn from each other; their peers, siblings and friends. However, I think as adults we also sometimes forget just how much ‘learning’ happens through play! In the nursery we are given daily reminders of the important role that play gives the children as they grow and develop and how pivotal it is to their learning. In the nursery here at Cargilfield, the children have been learning about woodlands and woodland animals and it is incredible to see how much of the children’s learning has been; developed, extended and consolidated through their play.

We see examples of this every day in all sorts of wonderful ways, a few of which I have highlighted here:

All sorts of fantastic art work and den building have taken place over the last few weeks where the children have been able to use their imagination and problem solving skills to create something wonderful. These types of play scenarios are crucial in developing the children’s imagination, critical thinking and problem solving skills.

Creativity through play has also been shown in many different contexts this term. The children have created their own self-portraits, made woodland art pictures and scavenged for items to make their own woodland crowns to give just a few examples. These sorts of activities are so important to help brain development in early childhood as they promote cognitive, social and emotional development aswell as helping to develop a range of multi-sensory skills.

The sand and water areas in the nursery have been very popular this term as the children make and test their hypotheses, stretch their imagination and explore their senses through these different mediums. They have been encouraged to lead their own learning to help them develop their physical, cognitive and social skills in a variety of ways. Sand and water have provided the ultimate ‘blank canvas’ to enable this to take place.

The children have already been engaging in the nursery allotment over the last few weeks; planting pumpkin seeds and thinking of ways in which we can help the seeds grow and what we can make/do with the pumpkins once they have grown. Gardening is a fantastic experience which enables the children to discover, learn and explore their natural surroundings. The children are leading the learning in this instance; deciding what we plant, how we might help the seeds to grow and what we want to do with the vegetables which will grow i.e use them to make snack each week in nursery.

Role play and creative drama has also played an important role in the children’s learning so far this term. It is through this type of play that the children are extending their understanding of community, culture and the wider world as they take on different characters in play and learn to empathise and understand the feelings of others as they ‘step’ in to their shoes. We have had some wonderful ‘role play’ so far this term with the children using masks of woodland animals as a prompt to ‘become’ the animal and then searching for food and making houses through their play.

So, when we take a step back and consider ‘How do we learn best?’ let’s not forget about the crucial role that play contributes to a child’s learning and development, something which we are reminded of in the nursery every single day.

We’ve been thoroughly enjoying our new term’s topic of Castles, so much so that we have spent the last week in the P2L morning armoury making various swords, spears, shields and suits of armour as you can see! We’ve even been able to role play in our very own castle too, complete with portcullis, tower and our own P2L flag. We’ll be well prepared as knights and ladies when we visit Craigmillar Castle next week!

We’ve been thoroughly enjoying our new term’s topic of Castles, so much so that we have spent the last week in the P2L morning armoury making various swords, spears, shields and suits of armour as you can see! We’ve even been able to role play in our very own castle too, complete with portcullis, tower and our own P2L flag. We’ll be well prepared as knights and ladies when we visit Craigmillar Castle next week!

Despite losing, this was a terrific game of rugby playing to the new P7 SRU Age Grade Law Variations, which have been introduced to encourage the ball to be in open play more often and to reduce the importance of the breakdown area. To this end, we saw the laws work very well as both sides moved the ball well in to space and the support play was excellent. Having been all square at half time, we were undone in the 2nd half as our defence was less assured and we did not come up together as a line to prevent the fast Stew Mel boys exploit the space; there was a lack of talking throughout the match and this is something that we need to develop when these boys play for the 1st and 2ndXVs for the rest of the season. Tiredness was a factor too later on, but working hard together, communicating and helping each other both with and without the ball is something that was lacking a bit this afternoon; only having two players contest the breakdown took a bit of getting used to, and the first two there must be more aggressive and get over the ball faster. We scored some terrific team tries and the game was a terrific spectacle for those watching on the sidelines, and it was lovely to receive comments about the rugby we played from the opposition coaches and parents. As always, we learn from every game, and I am looking forward to seeing how these boys react next week when the 1stXV and 2ndXV begin their seasons. It promises to be an exciting term of rugby!

Our Under-10 boys welcomed Loretto to the school on Wednesday for a triangular tournament, with Cargilfield fielding two teams, Stripes and Blues.

The Stripes took on Loretto in the first game, which proved to be a festival of tries, with both teams enjoying the opportunity to take the attack to the opposition. The score see-sawed in the first half, but in the second half, the Stripes managed to get a try ahead and then maintained the margin until the final whistle. Stripes took on Blues in the second match, this again saw a number of tries and ended in a draw. In the final match, it was the Blues turn to play Loretto, they used some good support play and well-timed offloads. Thomas scored a couple of tries through some fantastic offloads by Chay just metres from the try line. This match also ended in a draw – both sides produced some great tries and determined tackles. Well done to all the boys.

A super and very well matched fixture against Fettes in the glorious autumn sunshine. Our girls took a little while to get going but towards the end of the second quarter began to play more convincingly. Judith was strong in the centre and well supported by Mariella, Isabella and Amelia. Annika and Annabella with Georgia in goal provided an able defence. In the final quarter Fettes were 2 goals ahead but we refused to be beaten and some super work from our forwards helped Cicley and Judith to score and draw the match.

Won 6-0

It was a windy start to the hockey season! This was the first time the girls had played together as a team, but this didn’t show. Initially there was some hesitation about tackling the opposition, but the girls soon got into the swing of things. Matilda and Francesca worked incredibly hard, running the length of the pitch. They both made some lovely smooth passes to Poppy and Lulu to set up goals and used the width of the pitch. Lulu and Poppy worked brilliantly together, succesfully using one another as they approached the D. This enabled both of them to score all of our goals. Lottie played an excellent pass, playing down the side of the pitch and straight into the D to Poppy, looking before she passed. In defence, Iona and Ruby worked hard so the ball didn’t even approach Charlotte in goals. More communication between the girls and being stronger when they approach the D would help them in the future. A great first game girls, well done.

Won 12 tries to 9

After a few weeks of hard training and, for a lot, getting to grips with the basics of rugby, the U9s were very excited to play their first competitive fixture. And what a way to start the season against our friendly rivals, Fettes! In attack, the boys played well as a team and put into practice the skills that they had been shown in training. I was very pleased with their build up play and the way that they supported each other. Our pops from the tackles and spreading the ball were a joy to behold. However in defence, we were quite sloppy with our tackling and let the opposition run through our line too many times. I would like the boys to work on their tackling in training and be a bit braver in making the tackle. Whilst I was waiting for the boys to change back into kilts, I overheard them breaking out into song with ‘Flower of Scotland’, which I thought was absolutely brilliant!

Well done, boys!

We played two mixed teams against our friends from Mussleburgh and all boys involved learnt a lot about rugby and showed encouraging signs of improvement. The boys all had a chance to run with the ball and I was impressed with the passing on show. Our tackling was very good and we made it hard for the Loretto players to find a way through for a try. In their first game of the season, the children learnt that despite getting a knock that may hurt a bit, you can still carry on and help your team and, soon enough, you forget you were hurt in the first place; not a bad life lesson there either. Overall, I was very pleased to see so much enjoyment and enthusiasm from a skilful bunch of players. Lots to work on but a worthy start to the season, well done.

We were very pleased that some Ardvreck mums saved the day, by driving the Ardvreck teams to Cargilfield when their bus broke down. Cargilfield played 3 teams against 2 Ardvreck teams. The mixed ability red team played first and performed well, with Rowan and Emilia strong in defence and Lyla, Bonnie and Isabella pushing forward. Cargilfield spent more time in the Ardvreck half but we were unable to score in the first half. We moved players in the second half and Bonnie scored a super goal. Rowan and Isabella also had some great chances. We were all pushing forward in the last few minutes and unfortunately left the goal undefended. Ardvreck broke free and scored a last minute goal. Final score Cargilfield 1 Ardvreck 1

Cargilfield A team quickly showed their dominance in the second match and there was some fine attacking play and super goals. Issy hit some lovely balls into the D area allowing us to score quickly. Esme and Amalia defended well but also had some opportunity to attack in the second half when we swopped positions. Bea scored three goals, Lucy two and Maddy one. Ardvreck also inadvertently hit in another shot on goal from Lucy. Whilst we need to learn how to better mark our players we played well overall and won convincingly. Final score Cargilfield 7 Ardvreck 0.

The third game was played by Cargilfield green team. In this game we played 7 mixed ability players against 7 girls from the Ardvreck squad. We started very well with Natasha scoring a lovely goal and Tessa, Athena and Natasha were playing a super passing game in a fine triangular shape rather than hitting the ball up the middle. This worked very well. Nadia had some lovely touches and Savannah worked hard to move the ball. We all tried very hard. Ardvreck were defending brilliantly, saving several attempts on goal and they then went on to score two goals of their own. Final score Cargilfield 1 Ardvreck 2.

3rd Hockey v Craigclowan Won 3-0

The 3rds took a while to settle and the play bounced from end to end . We looked the stronger team in the first half but just couldn’t score a goal. The second half was much better, and saw Bethany W score 3 goals in quick succession. Emma K played well and really got stuck in and was unlucky not to score. Lottie was solid in defence and made some good clearances. Calia also played well and it as great to see her lead the team with confidence both on and off the pitch. Malayka linked well with her midfield and made some vital tackles.

2nd Hockey v Craigclowan Won 8-0

The 2nds had a strong start to the season and quickly found their scoring sticks against Craigclowan. Laura T played very well and soon found the net after only 2 mins. The attacking lineup linked well and goal after goal went in. Hannah G scored 4 goals and Laura T scored a further 2. Caitlin made a fantastic save on the ground to keep out the opposition, and Catherine was a strong defender, playing the ball wide out of danger and demonstrating a strong presence on the pitch. Flora M also had a strong game and seemed to always be in the right place at the right time. Alannah worked hard and was rewarded with a goal bringing the final score to 8-0. Well done girls! A great start!

1st Hockey v Craigclowan Won 5-1

The 1sts had a great start to the season with a strong win at Craigclowan. We worked hard from the start and were quickly rewarded with a goal from Saphira. Saphira hung nicely near the goal throughout the match and the girls soon began to look for her early and play lovely balls through. Sophie worked Hard in midfield and after a few lovely hard wide shots, soon found the goal with a bullet of a strike. I was particularly pleased with our defence of Captain Ellie, Amelia and Emma who despite being put under pressure, stayed calm and looked to play the ball out of the danger area, time after time. Izzy and Sophie linked well in the second half and 2 further goals followed for Sophie; one from open play and one from a short corner. Amy nearly kept a clean sheet and she made some fine saves; her confidence grew as the game went on and she really rose to the occasion. Flora ran well in midfield and seemed to always be in a fantastic space. The girls tried to get the ball to her however didn’t always use her, and this is something we need to improve on; looking up early to pLay the ball wide so that the bell does the hard work, not us!

All in all it was a good start, but our targets this week will be to work on moving the ball round the pitch more strongly, to avoid placing ourselves under unnecessary pressure. Well done girls!

Lots of rugby matches too and it was lovely to see so many smiles afterwards too whatever the result!

Outdoor Pursuits is an option for girls and boys every afternoon, for those less keen on rugby or hockey, and on Wednesday afternoons there is a big trip out either kayaking, biking or rock climbing, all led by our OP specialist, Mr Laver. This week they headed off to Peebles and the Glentress Biking Centre which provides a huge range of purpose built tracks and trails through the forest. Great fun and everyone enjoyed their afternoon on the bikes!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Alastair Land, Headmaster of Repton School and Headmaster Designate of Harrow, to preach at our first Chapel Service of the term this morning. Mr Land spoke to us about Jesus helping Gentiles and how important it is for us to include everyone, including outcasts; Jesus reaches out to all of us and we should do likewise, especially to those who we find difficult to like. Thank you for coming to see us!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mr Alastair Land, Headmaster of Repton School and Headmaster Designate of Harrow, to preach at our first Chapel Service of the term this morning. Mr Land spoke to us about Jesus helping Gentiles and how important it is for us to include everyone, including outcasts; Jesus reaches out to all of us and we should do likewise, especially to those who we find difficult to like. Thank you for coming to see us!

The first part of the new astro facility opened today as the new smaller astro was finished at last, which meant the girls could get on and play some hockey! The larger surface will be completed in a few weeks’ time which will then mean we have outstanding sporting facilities for girls and boys to play hockey and netball on. In addition, four all weather cricket nets are part of the development too and these will help as we look to get more girls playing cricket in the summer. Exciting times at Cargilfield!

In the nursery we have been learning all about ‘Me and My Family’. We have also been finding out all about our friends and teachers at Cargilfield and who they have in their families. Today, we went investigating to find out: who has brothers, sisters and pets! We recorded what we found out on a tally sheet and counted the number of tally marks we collected. Well done! Super investigating for your first full week in nursery.

leftColBody

“By 2022 the UK will be short of 2 million engineers.” That’s what our Form 7s and 8s were told this morning by Mr John Patchett, a very experienced former engineer, turned STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) teacher and now lecturer with the Sea Cadets Marine Engineering Pathway.

John came to Cargilfield to deliver a workshop on buoyancy to the girls and boys and began with asking the children about different types of engineers. They were then asked to draw any object they could think of and this opened up a discussion on what type of engineers might have been involved in the design/manufacturing of that object.

rightColBody

Moving on to how engineers have helped solve problems and shape the world, they looked at the design of oil tankards and the children were set a task of trying to float as many marbles as they could in a large tub of water, using only paper, tape and tin foil. In their teams, they raced against the clock to design and build their own ‘tankard’ using the knowledge they had gained in the lecture. The children had great fun counting the number of marbles their team’s vessel could support on the water as Mr Patchett walked round collecting the results.

Our thanks to Mr Patchett for coming in and giving all 83 children such an interesting talk and hopefully inspiring some of them to become the engineers we are so desperately going to need in the future!

A big thank you to Mr Laver for his endless enthusiasm and encouraging the children in such a wide range of outdoor pursuits!

imageAltRugby
leftColBody

It was great to go over to Merchiston for their festival of rugby so early in the season. We had had a few training sessions under our belts so felt prepared and ready for some rugby. With the new trial laws set down by the SRU in place, it was going to be interesting to see how the teams faired. Two teams travelled to play 5 minute matches against Ardvreck, Fettes, St Mary’s, Loretto and Merchiston.

The A team played some great rugby by hitting the lines hard and breaking the tackles. We looked to offload and spread the ball wide but as it was early days, this didn’t always come off. Our tackling at times was outstanding but there were occasions where we didn’t quite line up our opposite man properly and we conceded a few tries due to allowing players to step around us. However, our attack was strong enough to score the tries to win a few matches closely and a couple more comfortably. Glen, James and Rory did a lot of the work and scored a few tries and Hugo, Cody and Harry were terrific at the break down.

leftColBody

I don’t know about you but The Blue Planet II was probably the best thing I watched on TV last year. The grandeur and vastness of the oceans is something to behold and it was a privilege to get such an intimate insight into the ways and workings of this dynamic landscape. Yet, watching the final episode which highlighted the impact the human race has had (and continues to have) on this delicate ecosystem, I was startled and appalled in equal measure at the scale and gravity of the damage done to this precious resource and the ongoing threat faced to this vital habitat.

As we return from our summer break, where many of us no doubt have been enjoying time spent by the seaside, it seems topical and relevant for the students to reflect on these experiences in class and explore these areas in more detail. Having been inspired by what I had seen on the TV, Form 6 Geographers will be focussing this term on The Oceans with a special emphasis on the current state of the oceans and how we can ensure that we use them wisely in the future. We will be looking into the global location of our oceans and how essential they are for life on earth. We will investigate how we use our oceans and how we are harming the ocean ecosystem. We are delighted to have a new suite of ipads in the Reynolds buildings which affords our pupils the ability to carry out independent research and enquiry into topics such as these. I have been so impressed with the knowledge and understanding demonstrated by Form 6 already on this issue. From our very first lesson last week, they have been captivated by the images of plastics in the water and how the marine life have been affected. The students show a great passion for the environment and issues regarding sustainability and it is clear, they want to do their little bit to prevent future harm.

I am sure the next few weeks will be a great time of learning for our pupils in Geography – a time of widening horizons, where they will be acquiring new skills, knowledge and understanding which is relevant not only in the classroom but beyond.

https://plasticoceans.org/
https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/plastic-facts/
https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04tjbtx/clips

What we have found out so far:
• 12 million tonnes of plastic is estimated to escape into the oceans each year.
• 90% of waste in the oceans is plastic.
• Countries like the UK use about 13 billion plastic bottles per year. Only 3 billion of these are recycled.
• It takes 450 years for a plastic bottle to break down into micro-plastics.
• Micro-plastics have been found in sea creatures living as deep as 11,000 metres.

Form 6 geographers also spend this term working on The John Muir award which enables young people to connect with, enjoy and care for wild places.

Today some of the Nursery children had noticed that there were apples on the trees in the wildlife garden at the Pre Prep. We decided to use the apples to make cake for snack. We learnt how to use scales and were learning new maths concepts as we weighed out the ingredients. We then all had it for afternoon snack and it was delicious!!!!

As the only B team at the festival, the boys knew they were probably going to be up against it for most of the afternoon.

Their first two matches were against St Mary’s Melrose and Merchiston. They made ground going up the pitch but weren’t quite able to turn attacking opportunities into tries, and found it tricky to manage the pace of some quick opponents who flew through the backline to score tries.

The third game was a little better, since the boys showed more intent in their tackling against Fettes but still were unable to score a try of their own. Against Loretto, the boys stepped up their game again and managed to touch down over the line for a try, narrowly losing the match 1-2. The boys were more alert and made better use of offloading to keep up the momentum. In the final match, Ardvreck overpowered the team but not before they managed to score a try, with Kyan touching it down.

The festival was a steep learning curve but a marvellous way to begin the season. A fantastic effort from all the boys.

The first week of term has flown by and it has been fantastic to see the children quickly settling back in to their routines, working hard in the classroom and being very busy outside too!

The extensive activity programme has started with over 50 activities on offer in the evenings, lots of music ensembles in break times, rugby and hockey in the afternoons and also a chance to spend time playing with friends. Prep School at its best!

imageAltCoding
leftColBody

Technology is changing faster than the blink of an eye and in the 16 plus years I have been at Cargilfield, not only has the amount and the quality of hardware we have at the school increased dramatically, the curriculum has had to move with it.

It was April 2002 when I stepped through the doors at Cargilfield to run the Design and ICT departments. There were 10 PCs in an ICT suite all running Windows ’95; dial-up internet; one printer; no interactive whiteboards; no projectors…the list or perhaps the lack of a list of hardware goes on. The subject of ICT back then was very much Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Databases, create a picture in Paint and it stayed that way for some time, even when the hardware replaced and grew in numbers. We added a new ICT suite with the Pre Prep in 2003; interactive whiteboards were purchased; projectors were hung from the ceiling; printers were put into classrooms along with new computers and broadband came in – first at 2Mb and then increased to the 100Mb fibre connection we enjoy today.

Whilst there has been significant investment into the IT hardware, the teaching and topics we studied in ICT largely remained the same. Of course, topics changed, projects were different as I looked to engage the children with something new but the software they were using was the same. There were pretty pictures created in Paint to put on display along with word processed menus for a restaurant or graphs created with data collated – all valuable skills to learn in their own right but it wasn’t getting the children inspired. They weren’t given as much opportunity to express themselves or let their imaginations run wild other than using a rainbow brush to create a squiggly psychedelic pattern. About 10 years ago, I started to introduce Scratch, the software created at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The enthusiasm from the children was incredible. Many of them had played video games but hadn’t really been given the chance to actually design and create them.

We continued with this and children built up their knowledge of Scratch and began to create some wonderful pieces of work. However, a few years later two parents, who were particularly enthusiastic about all things computing, came to see me armed with an iPad and YouTube clips, and made me realise I was missing something from my lessons. The videos on YouTube were of two young New Zealanders lecturing to an audience of 10-12 year old children on Computer Science topics. Their enthusiasm and passion for the subject had the children gripped and laughing at the humourous ways they delivered what might be perceived to be a dull subject for ‘geeks’. CSUnplugged.org provides an entire curriculum containing lesson plans for teaching topics such as binary, text compression and minimal spanning trees– all without using a computer.

Following this conversation with the two parents, I decided to see what else was out there and delved into the teaching of Computer Science a bit more. I found Code.org – a non-profit organisation founded by Hadi Partovi who is trying to get everyone to try the “Hour of Code.” The website has videos of famous American celebrities explaining different coding terminology before giving you the chance to use blocks of code to make an Angry Bird move through a maze to catch the pig. You can navigate Ana and Elsa (of Frozen fame) on ice to draw patterns and shapes using loops and functions. If you don’t know what a ‘function’ is, why not bring up the video of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates to explain it – which he does in a really simple way. Code.org is a fabulous resource for those of Cargilfield School age and CSUnplugged offers the older children more talk and chalk based lessons but with props to make it really interactive.

And so out of the window went ICT lessons teaching word processing, spreadsheets and how to get the rainbow paint brush in Colour Magic and Computer Science at Cargilfield was born. Why paint your own picture in Paint when you can paint your own Sprite or background for your game? And understand that you are in fact drawing a load of pixels?

When I introduced some Form 6 children to CSUnplugged, at first they were very confused. “So you’re saying we aren’t going to log on to a computer till after half term?!” As anyone could imagine this confused them slightly and there were a few moans and groans but after the first lesson on Binary, I got some really positive feedback. We are now into our 3rd year of Computer Science at Cargilfield and the children are very enthusiastic about the subject.

Our evening midweek Code Club is full of girls and boys wanting to design and make their own games on Scratch – from scratch. Our long 50 minute break (on wet days) offers those especially keen on honing their skills and who want to share what they have created with others.

Our 2018-2019 academic year has begun and as always, evening clubs at Cargilfield begin on day 1. I had two very excited Form 4 girls arrive at Code Club on our first evening back. “What can we do?” they asked. As my regulars got logged on and began coding away, we went straight onto Scratch – something they had been introduced to in P3 and began thinking about what they could create. When Natasha said, “I want to make an animation of me throwing a ball to Nadia; where do I get the characters from?” I replied, “Why choose the characters from Scratch, when we can use you and Nadia in the game?”

By the end of the club, they had created sprites of themselves and were learning how to make a ball move across the screen from side to side by adding blocks of code. To see the excitement and enthusiasm on their faces at what they were creating was especially pleasing and they cannot wait to develop and build their animation into a game at Code Club next week! Computer Science is a thoroughly exciting and interesting subject which not only teaches the children how to code but also develops their computational thinking. Computer Science provides the children with insights into other STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and this makes it a very important member of our broad curriculum here at Cargilfield.

We must not forget ICT however, and getting the right balance is important. As well as learning the nuts and bolts of how the computers work, the children are still logging on to our computers or iPads at Cargilfield. Teachers of other subjects at Cargilfield are using our ICT suites to word process, create PowerPoints and research the internet.

However, the fact that the children are gaining a better understanding of how things work will enable them to get a better understanding of the systems they are using and be able to solve problems when things don’t work. Children who can think computationally are more able to conceptualise and better equipped to function in modern society. As the well-known Dutch computer science engineer, Edsger W. Dijkstra famously remarked, “Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes”.

I had two very excited Form 4 girls arrive at Code Club on our first evening back. “What can we do?” they asked. As my regulars got logged on and began coding away, we went straight onto Scratch – something they had been introduced to in P3 and began thinking about what they could create. When Natasha said, “I want to make an animation of me throwing a ball to Nadia; where do I get the characters from?” I replied, “Why choose the characters from Scratch, when we can use you and Nadia in the game?”

By the end of the club, they had created sprites of themselves and were learning how to make a ball move across the screen from side to side by adding blocks of code. To see the excitement and enthusiasm on their faces at what they were creating was especially pleasing and they cannot wait to develop and build their animation into a game at Code Club next week! Computer Science is a thoroughly exciting and interesting subject which not only teaches the children how to code but also develops their computational thinking. Computer Science provides the children with insights into other STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) subjects and this makes it a very important member of our broad curriculum here at Cargilfield.

We must not forget ICT however, and getting the right balance is important. As well as learning the nuts and bolts of how the computers work, the children are still logging on to our computers or iPads at Cargilfield. Teachers of other subjects at Cargilfield are using our ICT suites to word process, create PowerPoints and research the internet.

However, the fact that the children are gaining a better understanding of how things work will enable them to get a better understanding of the systems they are using and be able to solve problems when things don’t work. Children who can think computationally are more able to conceptualise and better equipped to function in modern society. As the well-known Dutch computer science engineer, Edsger W. Dijkstra famously remarked, “Computer Science is no more about computers than astronomy is about telescopes”.

The first weekend of the Autumn Term is a leadership weekend for Form 8, and a chance for everyone to show their leadership potential as we begin what is an important year for them.
On Saturday, we all headed off to Retford Barracks for various team building challenges, where all the children were given opportunities to lead, to listen and to work things out in various groups. Our thanks to the army for what was a brilliant afternoon, and great fun too!
