The nursery went on a class trip to the Royal Botanic Gardens.  It was a beautiful autumn day and the children completed the 'Halloween Trail' where we had to look for all sorts of things to help Cally the Cat; build a nest, make a potion and find some of her friends!  The children were particularly taken by the edible garden where we saw; purple cabbage, blackcurrants and chives. What a wonderful outdoor learning experience!

As always, we are delighted to hear news from Former pupils, and share in their successes after leaving Cargilfield.

This week we received the wonderful news that Emily has been awarded the Fisher Sixth Form Scholarship down at Wycombe Abbey School, following on from her outstanding GCSE results there this summer.  

This is a fantastic achievement and there are a good number of former Cargilfield girls down there at the moment, in what is one of the top girls' schools in the UK.

Many congratulations indeed!

It was a fun filled Friday for the Nursery in Nature Kindergarten today with; tree climbing, fire fighting, trips to the park and finishing off with sausages and toast cooked on the fire. Even Mr Murdoch visited for a spot of breakfast! Great way to spend the morning before heading off on our holidays.

Many congratulations to all those children who took part in Cargilfield’s Got Talent 2018! This year’s well deserved winners were the ‘Fake Synchronised Swimmers’ but well done to all those who performed - a hugely entertaining afternoon of music, dance and even some magic!

A lovely way to bring the first half of term to an end. We hope everyone has a lovely break!

The children finished this week taking their donations up to the school chapel to be part of the Pre-Prep Harvest display. Mr Taylor thanked the children for all their donations and explained where they would be taken in order to help people who really need them. It was a lovely way to end this half term, so thank you so much for your donations.

The Nursery children finished this week taking their donations up to the school chapel to be part of the Pre-Prep Harvest display. Mr Taylor thanked the children for all their donations and explained where they would be taken in order to help people who really need them. It was a lovely way to end this half term, so thank you so much for your donations.

The Halloween Disco was a spooky and fun way to end a busy half of term. The Form 4 children have worked hard over the past few weeks to organise the disco to raise money for the Upper School charity, Spartans F.C. There was lots of dancing and some wonderful costumes. Thank you for your support in raising money for charity.

As part of our literacy and numeracy learning in the Nursery this week we have been focusing more closely on the stories ‘The Little Red Hen’ and ‘The Enormous Turnip’.

The children have been sequencing and predicting what happens next in the stories as well as using puppets to talk about the different characters which the hen meets on her journey and who joins the farmer to help dig up the turnip. We also used the animals in the stories as the basis of our numeracy activities for identifying, counting, ordering and recognising number.

On what was a gloriously sunny autumnal afternoon in Crieff, the 1stXV ended the first half of term with another excellent and dominant team performance, running in a large number of well constructed tries, with the ball moving through countless pairs of hands, dominating the breakdown to produce very fast ruck ball, and the speed out wide was far too much for the brave Ardvreck boys today. It was lovely to watch and despite putting on a number of replacements (and leaving some regulars back at school), these boys fitted seamlessly into the pattern of play, and we continued to run the ball confidently from all areas of the pitch with our off loading and support play, once again, very impressive. We look after the ball, our confident in our skills and know we will have support if we need it – the commitment on show, the desire not to make mistakes and our ability to go for the jugular was there for all to see today.

It is difficult to pick out individuals to be honest, but the way this group of boys have worked so hard for each other shows just what a tight team unit we have been since the beginning of term. I look back on those first three weeks with no match as an important part of our success, with the opportunity to work on our skills, the way we want to play the game, and to allow lots of competition for places before any selections were made. To then see the way in which we fought back against Dollar to deservedly win what was one of the best U13 games I have seen at this level, with no one panicking because we fell behind but playing controlled and confident rugby until the opening presented itself a few minutes from full time, was a key moment and we have never looked back.

rightColBody

Yes, far sterner challenges lie ahead after half term and we will undoubtedly be tested over the next few weeks, and we also head south on tour to Yorkshire for the 15th time which is always the highlight of the season: Giggleswick, Aysgarth, Sedbergh, Sedbergh, Loretto, Aysgarth, Dollar and Merchiston: that is some second half of the season ahead but I know that this group of boys will relish the challenge and continue to improve and work hard for each other. The sense of togetherness, the absence of a star player and yet the absolute desire not to let anyone down has epitomised our play so far; it is this which will come to fore when the opposition gets tougher. I can't wait!

First up though, on the final Sunday of half term is the Ardvreck Sevens. With a full team available, we could go close…..well done, rest up, and return ready for the business end of the season to start.

Many congratulations to the U13 Girls who travelled down to St Bede's School in Sussex to take part in the IAPS Qualifiers on Wednesday.  After a terrific day of hockey, with plenty of tense moments, they reached the Final which they eventually won on penalty flicks and so qualified through to the National IAPS Hockey Finals down at Millfield in November.  A brilliant day for such a hardworking group of girls.

introTextA wonderful day of hockey in Eastbourne!
image/cms/resources/img9984.jpg
imageAltHockey
leftColBody

The 1st girls travelled to Bede’s School to play in the IAPS qualifiers. We left Edinburgh just before lunch time and flew to Gatwick where we picked up our hire bus. After a brief pit stop at the hotel, we headed out to the bowling alley where the girls had great fun; I’m not sure any of them are destined to be international bowlers however they laughed a lot!  A lovely meal at an Italian restaurant in Eastbourne followed, and we headed back to the hotel, tummies full and ready for bed.

We arrived at Bede’s early, and after a good warm up, faced Westbourne House in our first match. We had a shaky start, losing 2 penalty corners within the first 2 minutes. We were punished by our slack concentration, and they scored. This was enough to rile the team, and we attacked pretty much for the rest of the half. Two excellent strikes from Sophie followed, with one skimming the post. With the score still at 1-0, we finished the half.  We started well, and Sophie dribbled through the opposition. This resulted in a strong shot from her which was saved well. Further pressure from us saw us win 2 more short corners which were defended well and the play turned. We lost 2 short corners later on in the half but kept the ball out. The game finished a disappointing 1-0; not really a fair reflection of the game in which we pressed hard and had a lot of opportunities.

We knew we had to really give our all in our next match against Dulwich Prep. We started with the centre and attacked from the start. Ellie made a lovely pass through to Saphira who turned and shot but was saved by the GK. A strong early ball through from Sophie soon followed and Saphira got on the end of it and turned well and won a shirt corner. We used our straight strike option and Sophie scored a cracking low ball. Emma and Ellie played very well in defence and cleared the ball wide. We had a passage of play where we played some lovely balls through to our high player, and this style of play was rewarded from a goal by Saphira from Sophie. With the seconds ticking away, we lost a soft goal in the last 10 seconds however we headed in to the half time 2-1 ahead. Izzy came in to her own in the second half and quickly won a short corner. We used our no 2 option which broke down so Sophie took a strike and scored. Further pressure from us followed, and another hard ball from Sophie up to Izzy resulted in a terrific goal and a 4-1 win.

Our last pool game was against Vinehall. We piled on the pressure throughout the game but it ended up being a frustrating match, as we found it hard to score. Izzy and Sophie linked well together and read each other’s play well. We won a long corner but just couldn’t manage to score. Another good break followed with Amelia crossing the ball in well but again we failed to connect. Ellie dominated the defence and cleared the ball well time after time. She saved a would-have-been goal with a lovely reverse tackle and cleared it away wide. The p,at swung to the other end quickly and Sophie passed a great ball through to Izzy who pulled it on her reverse and hit it hard in to the top of the net for what must be the goal of the day! Vinehall hit back and narrowly missed our goal but we hung on with our 1-0 lead in to half time. Vinehall started well and attacked our goal straight away. The play swung back and we had narrow misses from Katie and Sophie who were both well positioned. Amy had a great save to keep their goal out however we stupidly stopped playing when the ball hit our foot and no whistle was blown, and Vinehall utilised this and somehow managed to score. With only 9 minutes per half to play with, we simply ran out of time and the match finishes 1-1.

rightColBody

Our morning scores saw us finish in second place which meant that we progressed through to the Cup semi final against West Hill Park who won their section.  After a nervous wait we set up against Westhill Park ready for an important 18 minutes of hockey. Ellie won the toss and we started with the ball. We lost a short corner early on but Izzy ran out well and got the ball away. The play switched to the other end and Sophie was tripped up; in true Sophie style she got up, dusted herself down and proceeded to get the ball in the circle for Izzy to win a short corner. The ball was struck well and saved then Izzy popped it in the goal. We really looked like a very slick team and the next few minutes produced some really good hockey. Izzy sent the ball to Sophie, passed it through to Saphira who neatly slotted it in the back of the net. We held strong and finished the first half 2-0 up.

Westhill Park had the centre at the start of the second half, but we stole the ball quickly from them and won a corner after only 15 seconds. We used no 3 option and Amelia cracked a hard ball in to the goal to take us 3-0 up. Amelia continued to dominate the match and seemed to be everywhere, making very strong tackles and strong leads. Izzy also ran her socks off and played some outstanding hockey. We lost a short corner with 2 minutes to go however Amy saved yet mother shot with only 2 mins to go and we held off to progress to the Cup final against Bede’s. This match was probably the gutsiest performance from the girls all day and their determination and drive was amazing.

The final was a very tense affair and both teams were clearly keen to win. We won the toss and like our first game, were a little slow off the mark though for the first couple of minutes. Once again Sophie battled hard in midfield and Ellie had some cracking tackles. We won a short corner and Izzy had a great reverse strike but sadly we didn’t manage to score. Sophie played a good ball through to Saphira but once again we were denied a goal. Bede’s then came crashing through and slotted one in the goal. We gained possession quickly and won a couple of short corners however we just couldn’t get it past their efficient goal keeper. Amy made a good save and which kept us in the game and the match ended 1-0 to Bede’s at half time. The second half was a little flat at the start and the girls were getting a little frustrated at times. The time was ticking away however it was Sophie who saved the day and scored a cracking goal, literally in the last few seconds of the game. The ball didn’t even have enough time to get back to the half way, and the final whistle blew.

Golden goal beckoned, and the girls knew that they really needed to score quickly. Bede’s pressed hard but the play swung back in our favour and there was a mad scrambled in front of their goal with the ball practically skimming along their goal line however despite a late reverse strike from Izzy, the match stayed at 1-1 and the dreaded penalty strokes beckoned.

The format was 3 penalty strokes and Sophie, Izzy and Ellie all stepped up to take one each. Sophie went first and her shot was saved well by Bede’s. Amy looked determined and stayed big and got a stick to the Bede’s first attempt at goal, however the ball flew past and in to the net. Izzy then stepped up and scored with a high ball to the left. Bede’s second player made a good attempt but Amy was not letting anything past her and saved the shot. Captain Ellie scored with a hard, low stroke so it was all down to the last stroke from Bede’s. Amy was today’s hero and saved the third attempt from Bede’s which meant we won the tournament! The girls were absolutely thrilled and I am so proud of the massive team effort. Good luck at Millfield next month girls; both Cuan and myself and really looking forward to it!

perch_introTextA wonderful day of hockey in Eastbourne!

The 1st girls travelled to Bede’s School to play in the IAPS qualifiers. We left Edinburgh just before lunch time and flew to Gatwick where we picked up our hire bus. After a brief pit stop at the hotel, we headed out to the bowling alley where the girls had great fun; I’m not sure any of them are destined to be international bowlers however they laughed a lot!  A lovely meal at an Italian restaurant in Eastbourne followed, and we headed back to the hotel, tummies full and ready for bed.

We arrived at Bede’s early, and after a good warm up, faced Westbourne House in our first match. We had a shaky start, losing 2 penalty corners within the first 2 minutes. We were punished by our slack concentration, and they scored. This was enough to rile the team, and we attacked pretty much for the rest of the half. Two excellent strikes from Sophie followed, with one skimming the post. With the score still at 1-0, we finished the half.  We started well, and Sophie dribbled through the opposition. This resulted in a strong shot from her which was saved well. Further pressure from us saw us win 2 more short corners which were defended well and the play turned. We lost 2 short corners later on in the half but kept the ball out. The game finished a disappointing 1-0; not really a fair reflection of the game in which we pressed hard and had a lot of opportunities.

We knew we had to really give our all in our next match against Dulwich Prep. We started with the centre and attacked from the start. Ellie made a lovely pass through to Saphira who turned and shot but was saved by the GK. A strong early ball through from Sophie soon followed and Saphira got on the end of it and turned well and won a shirt corner. We used our straight strike option and Sophie scored a cracking low ball. Emma and Ellie played very well in defence and cleared the ball wide. We had a passage of play where we played some lovely balls through to our high player, and this style of play was rewarded from a goal by Saphira from Sophie. With the seconds ticking away, we lost a soft goal in the last 10 seconds however we headed in to the half time 2-1 ahead. Izzy came in to her own in the second half and quickly won a short corner. We used our no 2 option which broke down so Sophie took a strike and scored. Further pressure from us followed, and another hard ball from Sophie up to Izzy resulted in a terrific goal and a 4-1 win.

Our last pool game was against Vinehall. We piled on the pressure throughout the game but it ended up being a frustrating match, as we found it hard to score. Izzy and Sophie linked well together and read each other’s play well. We won a long corner but just couldn’t manage to score. Another good break followed with Amelia crossing the ball in well but again we failed to connect. Ellie dominated the defence and cleared the ball well time after time. She saved a would-have-been goal with a lovely reverse tackle and cleared it away wide. The p,at swung to the other end quickly and Sophie passed a great ball through to Izzy who pulled it on her reverse and hit it hard in to the top of the net for what must be the goal of the day! Vinehall hit back and narrowly missed our goal but we hung on with our 1-0 lead in to half time. Vinehall started well and attacked our goal straight away. The play swung back and we had narrow misses from Katie and Sophie who were both well positioned. Amy had a great save to keep their goal out however we stupidly stopped playing when the ball hit our foot and no whistle was blown, and Vinehall utilised this and somehow managed to score. With only 9 minutes per half to play with, we simply ran out of time and the match finishes 1-1.

Our morning scores saw us finish in second place which meant that we progressed through to the Cup semi final against West Hill Park who won their section.  After a nervous wait we set up against Westhill Park ready for an important 18 minutes of hockey. Ellie won the toss and we started with the ball. We lost a short corner early on but Izzy ran out well and got the ball away. The play switched to the other end and Sophie was tripped up; in true Sophie style she got up, dusted herself down and proceeded to get the ball in the circle for Izzy to win a short corner. The ball was struck well and saved then Izzy popped it in the goal. We really looked like a very slick team and the next few minutes produced some really good hockey. Izzy sent the ball to Sophie, passed it through to Saphira who neatly slotted it in the back of the net. We held strong and finished the first half 2-0 up.

Westhill Park had the centre at the start of the second half, but we stole the ball quickly from them and won a corner after only 15 seconds. We used no 3 option and Amelia cracked a hard ball in to the goal to take us 3-0 up. Amelia continued to dominate the match and seemed to be everywhere, making very strong tackles and strong leads. Izzy also ran her socks off and played some outstanding hockey. We lost a short corner with 2 minutes to go however Amy saved yet mother shot with only 2 mins to go and we held off to progress to the Cup final against Bede’s. This match was probably the gutsiest performance from the girls all day and their determination and drive was amazing.

The final was a very tense affair and both teams were clearly keen to win. We won the toss and like our first game, were a little slow off the mark though for the first couple of minutes. Once again Sophie battled hard in midfield and Ellie had some cracking tackles. We won a short corner and Izzy had a great reverse strike but sadly we didn’t manage to score. Sophie played a good ball through to Saphira but once again we were denied a goal. Bede’s then came crashing through and slotted one in the goal. We gained possession quickly and won a couple of short corners however we just couldn’t get it past their efficient goal keeper. Amy made a good save and which kept us in the game and the match ended 1-0 to Bede’s at half time. The second half was a little flat at the start and the girls were getting a little frustrated at times. The time was ticking away however it was Sophie who saved the day and scored a cracking goal, literally in the last few seconds of the game. The ball didn’t even have enough time to get back to the half way, and the final whistle blew.

Golden goal beckoned, and the girls knew that they really needed to score quickly. Bede’s pressed hard but the play swung back in our favour and there was a mad scrambled in front of their goal with the ball practically skimming along their goal line however despite a late reverse strike from Izzy, the match stayed at 1-1 and the dreaded penalty strokes beckoned.

The format was 3 penalty strokes and Sophie, Izzy and Ellie all stepped up to take one each. Sophie went first and her shot was saved well by Bede’s. Amy looked determined and stayed big and got a stick to the Bede’s first attempt at goal, however the ball flew past and in to the net. Izzy then stepped up and scored with a high ball to the left. Bede’s second player made a good attempt but Amy was not letting anything past her and saved the shot. Captain Ellie scored with a hard, low stroke so it was all down to the last stroke from Bede’s. Amy was today’s hero and saved the third attempt from Bede’s which meant we won the tournament! The girls were absolutely thrilled and I am so proud of the massive team effort. Good luck at Millfield next month girls; both Cuan and myself and really looking forward to it!

The F4 and F5 children gave the P2-F5 teachers a rest this morning as they took on the role of being a Maths teacher in the Pre-Prep. All of the year groups were mixed and the children experienced lots of different activities: Tangrams, measure, tessellation and pictograms. There were lots of hands on materials and iPads to aid the F4 and F5 children to teach, and for the P2 and P3 children to understand the topics being taught. Everyone worked extremely co-operatively and were extremely enthusiastic. P3C said it was best their morning at Cargilfield so far! The F4 and 5 children gave it 5 out of 5. A lovely way to end a busy half of term.

The Under Nines were pleased to be on astroturf today. We played two teams of under nine girls and enjoyed playing hockey in the autumn sunshine. The A team were captained by an on form Savannah. She scored four of the total eight goals. We went ahead fairly quickly as we have had more experience than the Ardvreck girls. We have been working on a strategy of pass wide, pass long, pass in and shoot and it was lovely to see it in action with some nice passes. Ardvreck came back with two goals in the second half but we added another four to our total. Issy, Bea and Lucy were the other goal scorers. I was particularly pleased with Maddie who played brilliantly in midfield and kept on feeding great balls to our attackers. Final score Cargilfield 8 Ardvreck 2.

Having lost the last 3 matches in a row, it was important that we worked hard as a team and looked to use the pace we’ve got at this age-group. Seb and Kyan came in to give us this and Matthew was employed to give us some tough tackling and positive energy that we had perhaps lacked before.

The boys played with a terrific attitude today and supported each other well. There was some great tackling and ball winning at the breakdown from Ollie, Hugo and Cody and Rory ran the show in the first half with his forward running and off loading to the centres.

It wasn’t perfect and we missed some tackles and other opportunities to offload the ball before the tackle but we didn’t let it get to us and kept our heads up. In the end we ran out winners by 10-6 with Seb putting in a man of the match performance by scoring 4 good tries from the wing.


rightColBody

It was great to see the hands working hard to get the ball out wide, especially from Matthew who just made the back line come into play by looking to get the ball out as soon as possible. Well done to him and Seb for stepping up today from the B team and showing they have much to offer but to all the boys, huge congratulations for coming back from what has been a difficult  few weeks on the pitch.

Thank you to Ardvreck for travelling south to see us and for competing well and making it a terrific game to watch. We look forward to seeing you again after half term at our Sevens competition on Saturday 3rd November.

Singers from our Chapel Choir and F6 Training Choir joined singers from Ardvreck, Belhaven, Craigclowan and Mowden Hall as well as Glenalmond Chapel Choir on Sunday 14th in a Choral Service. We rehearsed together during the day and the children also enjoyed some fun activities in the afternoon. 

We were made very welcome, as always, and the massed choir of 200 singers made a lovely sound. The service, preceded by a performance by the Glenalmond Pipes and Drums, was attended by many parents. It was lovely to see old Cargundians Sophie, Scarlett and Sandy in the Glenalmond choir, Scarlett and Charlie in the Pipe Band, as well as Alexander, who played the organ for the service. Well done to James, whose reading of Martin Luther King Jr’s ‘I have a dream’ speech was a real highlight of the service.

P1F have been investigating 2D shapes and yesterday we went on a shape hunt around the school. We found countless squares, rectangles, triangles and circles. We've been learning how to carefully count the sides to identify what shape it is and we found out that the table at the bottom of the stairs is an octagon! We even tried to see what shape our hopscotch is, it has 28 sides and we found out this is called a icosioctagon.

It is always lovely to welcome touring sides from south of the border to Cargilfield, and on Saturday we were visited by St Hugh’s, a prep school from Lincolnshire. On what was a very, very wet and dreich morning, it was a very one sided game of rugby to be honest, although credit to St Hugh’s who never once gave up and kept going right to the end. However, the rugby we played was quite exceptional given the conditions, with some superb handling, the ball moving down the line with real pace and power, whilst the forwards once again dominated the breakdown and so starved St Hugh’s of the ball, which allowed us to score a lot of very well worked tries. I have a job thinking of a dropped ball if truth be told, and that says something about the concentration and skill level of this group of boys. Yes, there will be sterner tests to come, but to be so relentless, in such atrocious conditions, says a lot. Well played indeed!

Special mention to Harry for his piping before the start of the game: it is always a highlight for visitors south of the border, and today it was no different!

Cheese Scones - We have been talking and learning all about harvest and what happens in Scotland during harvest time. The children have been learning about all the different ways in which food is harvested; whether it is done by machines or people. They have also been thinking about the different foods that are grown and harvested in Scotland but in other countries too. We have talked about what happens to the grain that is harvested including things like; bread, biscuits and scones. The children decided they then wanted to make cheese scones as part of their own harvest celebrations.

leftColBody

This was another hugely impressive and dominant performance from the 1stXV as we played St Mary’s down in Melrose on the hottest October afternoon I can remember! 22 degrees it said in the bus, and we should brought taken our cricket gear with us!

For the first time for a couple of weeks, we had everyone available for selection and I was delighted with the ambitious way in which we played, looking to keep the ball alive, off load, move it at pace and keep changing the point of attack. It was good watch and we scored a lot of very well worked tries in the 40 minutes we played. St Mary’s had really tested us in the semi finals of the Loretto Sevens, so were no push over, but we never let them get a sniff of the ball in the first half as we made big holes in the midfield and had runners out wide to exploit the space.

The 2nd half started a little scrappily as we made a few errors, and perhaps a bit of complacency had set in, but the final ten minutes saw us dominate once again, defending well as a unit, tackling, jackling and scoring some well deserved tries before the final whistle.

In that heat, the fast paced game we played was impressive. For two weeks running, we have played some outstanding rugby, dominated possession, not given the opposition a sniff, and come away with big wins. This group of boys are gelling into a terrific unit: they all work for each other, they are well led by the Captain, and are hungry for success. It bodes well for the tests to come, but all four teams we have played so far have been no push overs, yet we have played all the rugby, shown ourselves to be a real team and I cannot wait for the final two games of this half term, and then it's the biggies when we return after a break.

Very well done indeed, boys.

Today P2 visited the Scottish National Gallery and were taken on a guided tour around the galleries looking at landscapes painted by various artists. We were given graphite sticks and did our own sketches of the paintings particularly enjoying the painting by Sir Edwin Landseer of the magnificent stag in “The Monarch of the Glen”. Continuing on the Scottish theme we then walked to the Portrait Gallery and went on a hunt for the famous Scots we are researching and preparing to present next week. We found Mary Queen of Scots in her black dress with lace trimmings, the brave Flora MacDonald dressed in tartan and a picture of Bonnie Prince Charlie (“Bettie Burke” ) disguised as a woman escaping to the Isle of Skye. Our many thanks to all the Mums who helped escort the children through the busy Edinburgh streets!

Form 6 went to Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh this morning to experience life in their science and technology departments.

The children made a computer game using Scratch; took part in some interesting chemistry experiments and witnessed what happens when you add jelly babies to a test tube full of heated chemicals! They finished their morning making a key ring in Design Technology using the manufacturing process of injection moulding.

They also learned about light in Physics and made pinhole cameras, then used soldering irons to build electronic musical instruments by soldering different resistors to a circuit board before finishing with a wonderful treat in the Biology department where they met many of the Merchiston “pets”, of the slimy and scaly variety!

As always, the Merchiston staff were extremely enthusiastic with our children and gave them a real flavour of the fantastic departments they have there. Our thanks also the senior boys who ran many of the workshops themselves during the morning and who were great ambassadors for the school.

On an unexpectedly warm sunny day for October, the Under 11B team travelled down to Melrose to play a rugby match against St Mary’s. The boys got off to a strong start with a try in the first minute. They then managed to execute some great tackles and win the ball back from the opposition but lost it through a knock on shortly after. This pattern continued for a few more minutes until the boys eventually settled down and the ball moved more easily through the hands. Cargilfield continued to attack strongly and by half time had bagged a number of tries. As good as the attack was, the defence was just as impressive with all members of the team contributing to the tackling and exerting pressure at every ruck. A wild kick allowed St Mary’s to build a successful attack which resulted in a try but the boys fought back to score three more times before the close of play. Tries were scored by Ollie, Harry and Matthew. The final score was 8 tries to 1.

An early goal for us against Fettes, set up by Cara and scored by Annabella, took us ahead in the first quarter. Despite not having a goalkeeper Fettes worked hard in defence to deflect the ball from their goal, but at the end of the first half we were 2 goals to 0 ahead. Fettes came back strongly in the second quarter but we managed to score again; Freya took the total to four after a super run up the wing and pass in from Cara. In the second half there was a lot of action at both Ds until Fettes broke through and scored. Fettes continued to drive forward and scored again before the final whistle making the final score 5-2 to Cargilfield. Well done, girls.

Won 6-0

It was an unusually hot day in October for our game at Loretto. The girls played brilliantly as a team. Clara dribbled the ball as soon as the whistle blew. Cargilfield were dominant in Loretto’s D throughout the game and tried from very early on to score. However, the girls needed to be more accurate with their shooting. Georgia scored the first goal, which was set up smoothly by Lulu from the corner of the D. There were some great tries from Clara, which eventually paid off as she scored, using a strong hit from the top of the D. This was quickly followed by Lulu. After a drink and rest from the sun, the girls continued to play well in the second half. Matilda and Venetia dribbled brilliantly down the side of the pitch, passing the ball to Lulu to score the final two goals. Clara made a great try in the last few minutes but unfortunately just missed. Iona pushed up the pitch to dribble the ball forward several times, which helped Loretto to stay out of Cargilfield’s D. Well done girls.

Blues vs St. Mary’s: 6-3

Stripes vs St. Mary’s: 4-3

On a lovely sunny Scottish afternoon, the boys were excited to play St. Mary’s at home. Due to the opposition having a few U8 players, for safety reasons we played Tag Rugby. Despite their disappointment at not being able to tackle, the boys understood the rules and played in a professional manner. I was really pleased with both the Stripes and the Blues; their pressing of the opposition and good support play in the team led both teams to be able to score at will. One area that they can work on for next week is to keep their team shape in defence, which can sometimes fall apart and allow gaps to appear in the line.

Well done, boys!

I was really pleased with both the Stripes and the Blues; their pressing of the opposition and good support play in the team led both teams to be able to score at will. One area that they can work on for next week is to keep their team shape in defence, which can sometimes fall apart and allow gaps to appear in the line.

Well done, boys!

Won 7-1

Well done to the 1st girls today who bounced back after our disappointing result against Fettes last week. We looked back to our normal selves; composed on the ball and hungry to score. We started off strongly with a goal from Sophie just after 2 minutes. We continued to press hard and pressurised their goal. Our persistence in front of goal paid off and Izzy scored a lovely goal which, in true Izzy style, was lifted. We quickly attached again a won a short corners which we scored from by a strike by Amelia. Katie moved well up front and was unlucky not to score and moved the ball wide which was great to see.

Half time: Cargilfield 3 Loretto 0

We started the second half in a very similar fashion to the first with a goal just after the 1st minute. Sophie played a lovely ball through and Saphira got on the end of the pass, turned and shot at goal. Our defence was rarely troubled today but when they were they looked in complete control. Emma had a strong game and stayed low and tackled very well. Ellie had a couple of lovely runs up the pitch and she popped a ball through to the circle which resulted in a short corner. Sophie struck this ball hard which rocketed in to the back of the goal. The play swung back again in our favour and Flora made a strong run on the right and crossed the ball in for Saphira to sweep in the goal. Flora was quickly rewarded for all her hard work by a goal after another good pass from Sophie. Loretto scrambled the ball over the half way and broke through and scored a goal in the dying minutes of the game after a strong tussle from Emma and the match finished 7-1 to Cargilfield.

Won 7-0

The 2nds had an equally impressive game this week and played some really good hockey. Flora M was particularly strong today and dominated our defence. Clemmie was on fire and simply couldn’t stop scoring too! The match started well and Alannah powered in to the circle early in the game and shot hard, only for the keeper to save. Clemmie took the rebound and got us off the mark with a good goal. We piled on the pressure in the next 10 minutes and Hannah had a good strike at goal and scored our 2nd. Hannah continued to play well and played a lovely ball through to Clemmie who made contact and scored again. Clemmie really had her shooting hands on and finished off the first half with a further goal to bring the score to 4-0.

Half time: Cargilfield 4 Loretto 0

The second half started well with a short corner awarded to us quickly. Catherine injected the ball and the ball came back to her, and she swept it well in to the back of the net. Clemmie popped another goal in after a great deal of pressure in the D, and a further goal for Clemmie soon followed after a lovely cross from Fran. Fran played particularly well on the right today, running wide and picking up many a strong ball from Rosanna, who tackled hard and distributed the ball strongly. Alannah was unlucky not to score today but was involved in literally every attacking move; her ability to always be the in the right place at the right time was great to see today and she really held the midfield together. Poor Caitlin did not have much action in goal today however her ever cheery face and positive chat kept the team going. Well done to the girls; a great team effort today.

P3C has signed up to take part in the 'What's Under Your Feet' study run by British Trust for Ornithology (BTO). BTO hopes to learn more about how climate change is affecting the British bird population, and how we can help to protect our bird species. Pupils will learn more about the natural balance that birds rely on.

We are doing this as part of our contribution to our Pre-Prep Eco-Schools initiative - through 'The Pod' EDF initiative.

The children enjoyed the sunshine and balmy temperatures this afternoon while looking for and identifying creatures we found in the soil.

On a quite stunning Wednesday, we headed down the A68 to Melrose to take on St Mary’s. We began well with a terrific try from James showing his pace to run around the outside after a well- timed pass from Hector. However, we gifted the home team a try when we threw a loose ball and it was intercepted. St Mary’s then scored again after some good build up play. We were coping well at the break down and winning lots of ruck ball. Cody was on hand to deliver the ball to Rory at fly half and when it went wide, Luca touched down in the corner and we were back in it at 2-2. However, from a set piece, we allowed their centre the freedom to pick a gap and he made it 3-2 to them at the break. We were still in the game and at half time, we talked about looking after the ball properly and making more penetrating runs. Chay did this really well in the second half and made some good ground. Despite a good opening couple of minutes to the half, St Mary’s got on the front foot and stretched their lead quickly to 5 tries to 2 after some poor tackling. 

rightColBody

We then got completely sucked in and caught ball-watching after a tap penalty. Through an outrageous dummy that our entire defence bought, the St Mary’s player was allowed to run into the corner unchallenged. We then began to play some lovely interchanging passes through Alexander, Hector, Murray and Rory and we caused them problems when Albie carried it forward and then Cody made a good dart for the line. It was a bit of scramble but Hugo picked up and pounced over in the corner. Frustratingly, all our hard work was immediately undone when St Mary’s tapped and passed and our defence parted like the Red Sea and they had a 4 try cushion again. James scored his second before their best player got his 3rd or 4th and that was the full time whistle. The score line of 8-4 doesn’t reflect the balance of play as we did some really great stuff today; just a few missed tackles at crucial times cost us. Rory was our man of the match today as he had to put in a number of tremendous tackles and made some great breaks but well done to Cody, Chay and James for stepping up again as Under 10s and not giving up.

A big thank you to all the staff at The Burn Scotland for another wonderful time up in Edzell, as 7F spent two days there for their Geography and Science fieldwork studies.

We have been using The Burn for the past twelve years and have stayed over twenty times, as the children spend time in wonderful surroundings studying the flora and fauna of the local area, as well as sand formations and coastal erosion on St Cyrus beach at Montrose.

We are looking forward to returning next term!

You might have heard of a little trip year 7 did last month? The French trip to Normandie obviously!! What else could I write about when it is still so present in my lessons? The trip was a great success as much for the children as for the teachers. We stayed in a refurbished farm called La Grand’Ferme in the countryside, we visited gorgeous places such as the Mont St Michel, ate delicious foods, petted animals and... Wait...don’t think this was an excuse for a weekend escapade!

Au contraire!!

The main aim of this trip was not just the visits but more the immersion type of education the children were getting out of it. During the trip, the children were spoken to only in French and were encouraged to speak French in return through miming and repetitions. For instance they were told every morning in French, what food they had on their table, how to ask for more to the chef and how to clear their tables after breakfast, meaning repetition of words such as cutlery, foods etc.

But the benefits were not just visible during the trip:

Before going to France:

Motivation was a key word before, during and after the trip. I have seen pupils trying harder in class as we spent the first three weeks preparing for the trip. We revised some basics like weather, foods or how to ask for foods. They also created role plays in class to practice their speaking before arriving there (we had some very ‘interesting’ weather forecasts and shopping enquiries!). You could feel the excitation growing as the trip got nearer.

While in France:

It was amazing to see the effort some pupils who are usually shy would actually put into understanding and using the language on site. As teachers we felt like meeting new pupils sometimes! Several times we, teachers, were surprised to hear children speaking French to each other just for fun during their free-time (while playing cards in the coach for instance). During a trip like this children get a chance to learn about the culture as much as the language and it gives them a chance to try new things and discover a new motivation for a subject, here French.

After:

Since we have been back, we have been using more target language in the classroom than before. I can tell how much the trip has boosted some children. All the pupils have been writing mini-posters about the activities they have done and what they really liked or not. I was delightfully surprised to see them all trying hard. Especially, pupils who are usually reluctant in writing anything needed to be slowed down a little as they wanted to describe every single aspect of their trip (the display boards would not have been big enough). The mini-posters are now displayed around the school along with some pictures if you want to have a look for yourself.

So, in brief, a trip abroad is not just about the fun and the visits but about the motivation as much as the insight into a culture and a way of life the children get out of it. It is about the will to communicate with others even if you make mistakes as long as the message gets through. It is about getting out of your comfort zone and push yourself to try harder. This trip is also about pride and ownership: it was the 2018 year 7 trip to Normandie and it belongs to them now and they can be proud of what they have gained from it. They made it a success and I am sure the year 6 have heard some of their stories and now are wondering what I am cooking up for them next year...to be continued.

You might have heard of a little trip year 7 did last month? The French trip to Normandie obviously!! What else could I write about when it is still so present in my lessons? The trip was a great success as much for the children as for the teachers. We stayed in a refurbished farm called La Grand’Ferme in the countryside, we visited gorgeous places such as the Mont St Michel, ate delicious foods, petted animals and... Wait...don’t think this was an excuse for a weekend escapade!

Au contraire!!

The main aim of this trip was not just the visits but more the immersion type of education the children were getting out of it. During the trip, the children were spoken to only in French and were encouraged to speak French in return through miming and repetitions. For instance they were told every morning in French, what food they had on their table, how to ask for more to the chef and how to clear their tables after breakfast, meaning repetition of words such as cutlery, foods etc.

But the benefits were not just visible during the trip:

Before going to France:

Motivation was a key word before, during and after the trip. I have seen pupils trying harder in class as we spent the first three weeks preparing for the trip. We revised some basics like weather, foods or how to ask for foods. They also created role plays in class to practice their speaking before arriving there (we had some very ‘interesting’ weather forecasts and shopping enquiries!). You could feel the excitation growing as the trip got nearer.

Well done to the boys for quite a convincing victory away to Fettes. The sun was shining and quite a few parents were able to come and support. The boys enjoyed themselves and a big thanks to Zak and Archie who volunteered to play a half for Fettes who were a man down. The boys were encouraged to pass the ball a few times before running through for a try and this will benefit them against more resilient opposition.

The girls (and staff!) were very excited to play their first home match on the new astro! From the very start of the game the girls played well as a team. They were passing smoothly to one another so the first goal was scored quickly by Clara. This was closely followed by Anna’s three goals. Both teams needed to spread out as they were crowding the ball and sometimes had two players against the opposition. Mariella and Anna set up the next goal for Clara brilliantly, passing to one another and using the space they had wisely. Clara and Anna continued to score goals throughout the game, with Famke managing to dribble confidently up the pitch to score. Fettes goalie made some great saves throughout the whole game. Fettes tried to score a goal later on in the game but Valentina made some great saves and Judith was strong in defence. In the last few minutes of play Mariella scored a cracker of a goal in the far corner, which Anna set up well. Josephine performed some great dribbling, using the width of the pitch to her advantage for the whole game. Fettes fought back in the last 20 minutes and scored 3 goals. A great game girls, well done.

Having suffered defeat earlier in the week, we worked on things that needed improving for today’s match in our training session yesterday. We began well, spreading the ball wide and supporting the ball carrier. Within 3 minutes we were two tries up and had definitely started with a positive attitude. James was tackling everything in sight and working really hard for the cause. When we moved 3 tries clear, we sat back and allowed Fettes to get into it with two quick scores. However back we came through Rory who scored his second just after Glen was well-tackled. Fettes replied with a well-worked try before, on the final play before half time, Hugo found some space to break through the tackle and the lead was 5-3.

Fettes started the brighter of the two teams in the second half. They looked for gaps, stepped well to avoid contact and ran at pace, supporting the ball carrier well. Our tackling was not up to the standard it was in the first half with the rare exception from Cody where he adopted the tap-tackle approach but Fettes were good at offloading from the ground and had players in space. We didn’t hold our shape well in defence and they found it easy to score. Our only bright moment came when we got the ball wide and made a good couple of off-loads to put Ollie in for a try – his quick feet and darting run made him difficult to stop. However, it didn’t take Fettes long to score a few more and as their momentum grew, our heads dropped and people went missing. A few players kept battling but we found it difficult to get back into the game given Fettes’ defence.

Man of the match today was James who tackled extremely well and although he did not make every tackle, his effort and commitment to get stuck in and work hard for the team was second to none. Well tried boys, a game of two halves, certainly but we will pick ourselves up and work on things in training on Monday and Tuesday ahead of what will be a tough trip to Melrose on Wednesday.

We enjoyed three games of hockey in the sports hall this afternoon. The Blues played first and were joined by Tessa who took the injured Savannah’s place. Lucy and Maddie were on fire and scored lots of goals. Their performance was much better than at Belhaven, which was very pleasing.

Final score Cargilfield 7 Fettes 1.

The Yellows started very strongly scoring 6 goals in the first half. We swopped our defenders and attackers to try to even up the game but we still scored a further 2 goals, with Bea scoring a hat trick

Final score Cargilfield 8 Fettes 0.

The five young girls in the Green team had been very patient and came on excitedly for the third match. Our competition were playing only their first match and were a little overawed by the speed of play in the sports hall. We scored a large number of goals and were pleased to have won all the matches. All the girls enjoyed the hockey today. Green team won 9:2

Under a beautiful sunshine the girls had a great game. They were focused on the ball and managed several opportunities while still keeping a good defence. They still need to work on their positioning as they passed the ball to no one on several occasions. Sophia and Amenah did well defending the D and the Cara was a great centre during the second half. Heidi, Freya and Arya all scored goals.

Well done, girls.

What a wonderful afternoon for a match! We started strongly with Bethany and Sabine up front. Rose was fantastic at moving the ball forward and had a couple of early shots at goal. Sabine also made a fantastic attempt at goal but just couldn’t get it past the Fettes goal keeper. It was nil, nil at half time.
In the second half Malayka moved up front and Sabine to mid field. At the back Calia covered a lot of ground and was dynamic in defence, supported by Evie and Charlotte. Charlotte worked very hard to keep the ball out of her goal. After a lot of tooing and froing we managed to keep the ball at the Fettes end. Rose set up a pass to Malayka who scored.Fettes came back quickly to equalise and then quickly went a goal ahead. A particular shout out to Calia who was an excellent Captain.

Final score Fettes 2 Cargilfield 1

A rather disappointing end to the week today with our rearranged match against Fettes. Despite having most of the pressure throughout the game, we simply could not find the back of the net. We lacked our usual structure on the pitch and were very one sided, often trying to drive through the opposition rather than go round them. We won a rather large number of short corners but despite using all our options, the Fettes defence, and especially their goal keeper, kept out shot after shot and as our frustration grew, the time ticked away and before we knew it, we had lost the match 2-0. Plenty to work on going forwards; next week is a whole new week and hopefully we can regroup and look forward to a more positive match against Loretto.

I was delighted with the 15 man rugby the 1stXV played today. Then ball was moved well, changing the point of attack and our off loading game was outstanding once again as we supported the ball carrier and kept the ball alive. Our work at the breakdown was outstanding too, rucking at pace and gaining multiple turnovers. It was impressive to watch. 

With four of the 1stXV absent today due to injury, we once again showed huge skill and flair, moving the opposition all round the field and at the end of a busy week of rugby, this shows just how determined and together this group of boys are.  Those who came in to the side can be hugely pleased with their performances  

Very well played indeed, boys! Proper rugby and a performance I was very proud of once again.

We then went out in to the nursery garden, with our binoculars, to see how many different types of bird we could spot, before we went back to nursery to research them. We used information books to help us find out interesting facts about some of the garden birds which we saw and as part of our talking and listening activities we shared the things we have found out with our friends.

introTextAn outstanding display of running rugby!
image/cms/resources/img9576.jpg

Wow! Having lost to Belhaven in the Final of the Loretto Sevens at the weekend, we knew they would be a tough nut to crack; indeed, this group of boys had hardly lost a match since U9 level, and had some stand out players which we all saw on Sunday. They moved the ball well, had fast runners and there was a real confidence about their rugby.

Playing our first home game of the season, and without the Captain who was still injured after the sevens, this group of boys rose magnificently to the occasion and played the sort of fast paced, aggressive rugby that we have been working on since the start of the season: we dominated the breakdown area, winning huge amounts of ball, but used it intelligently, varying the game plan with forwards taking it on and then the backs exploiting the space out wide. It was a pleasure to watch from the sidelines, seeing all 13 men handling and running with confidence, using the ball well and taking the game to Belhaven.

What pleased me most is that we made good decisions in all areas of the field. The backs ran at pace and we exploited the new S1 laws with some terrific support play and off loading which kept the ball moving, changed the point of attack and left the Belhaven defenders floundering. It was, in fact 7-7 at half time, with both sides battling hard and we just weren’t quite clinical enough at the start with a few nerves; however, in the 2nd half we really did hit our straps and hopefully have set down a marker for the rest of the season as to how we want to play.

It would be invidious to mention any names today. It was a wonderful TEAM performance, with everyone contributing, working incredibly hard and celebrating in each others’ successes. It was super to see and the team was well led by the vice captain, who ensured his troops never lost their intensity right through to the final whistle.

Thank you, boys. This was something special and it was nice to hear such positive comments about the rugby you played from spectators on the side. Now for another challenge on Friday: we have Fettes and the chance to build on what has been an encouraging start to the season.

We scored a lot of tries!

Wow! Having lost to Belhaven in the Final of the Loretto Sevens at the weekend, we knew they would be a tough nut to crack; indeed, this group of boys had hardly lost a match since U9 level, and had some stand out players which we all saw on Sunday. They moved the ball well, had fast runners and there was a real confidence about their rugby.

Playing our first home game of the season, and without the Captain who was still injured after the sevens, this group of boys rose magnificently to the occasion and played the sort of fast paced, aggressive rugby that we have been working on since the start of the season: we dominated the breakdown area, winning huge amounts of ball, but used it intelligently, varying the game plan with forwards taking it on and then the backs exploiting the space out wide. It was a pleasure to watch from the sidelines, seeing all 13 men handling and running with confidence, using the ball well and taking the game to Belhaven.

What pleased me most is that we made good decisions in all areas of the field. The backs ran at pace and we exploited the new S1 laws with some terrific support play and off loading which kept the ball moving, changed the point of attack and left the Belhaven defenders floundering. It was, in fact 7-7 at half time, with both sides battling hard and we just weren’t quite clinical enough at the start with a few nerves; however, in the 2nd half we really did hit our straps and hopefully have set down a marker for the rest of the season as to how we want to play.

It would be invidious to mention any names today. It was a wonderful TEAM performance, with everyone contributing, working incredibly hard and celebrating in each others’ successes. It was super to see and the team was well led by the vice captain, who ensured his troops never lost their intensity right through to the final whistle.

Thank you, boys. This was something special and it was nice to hear such positive comments about the rugby you played from spectators on the side. Now for another challenge on Friday: we have Fettes and the chance to build on what has been an encouraging start to the season.

We scored a lot of tries!

1st Hockey v Belhaven – Won 12-0


What a treat it was to at long last, play a match on our home Astro!  The girls were really excited to be the first ones on it for a Wednesday fixture, and it was lovely to share it with our friends from Belhaven. 


We started the match at a great pace and a lovely drive up the pitch followed by a spot on cross from Sophie, led to Saphira opening the scoring.  An early ball in to the D not long after from Izzy saw Saphira find the net again and it was clear at this point that it was going to be an attacking game.  A further goal from Saphira followed and Sophie brought the score up to 4 with a strike from a short corner.  Belhaven fought back a bit and Amelia, Ellie and Emma all worked hard getting the ball up the pitch.  Sophie bagged goal number 5 after our short corner broke down and we won another short corner quickly after this after a lovely break through from Ellie.  Two more goals from Saphira followed and we finished the first half 7-0 up.  Belhaven started the second half off strongly and broke in to our circle a couple of times, forcing a couple of good saves from Amy.  The play quickly swung back up the other end and a well-deserved goal from Flora followed.  Goal 10 was a result of a bit of a scramble in front of their keeper, and Izzy popped the ball in to the back of the net.  We couldn’t stop Saphira from scoring today and she scored goal number 11 with another nifty turn in front of the goal keeper.  Izzy scored the final goal, after receiving a lovely ball through from Amelia. 


Although it was definitely a day for the strikers, it was obviously a big team effort and well done all for such a fantastic opening match on the Astro!

2nd Hockey v Belhaven – Won 5-2


The 2nds had a hard act to follow after the high scoring game of the 1sts, but they did not let us down and had a fantastic game of hockey today.  Laura scored quickly after only 3 minutes from a very tight angle, after a lovely ball through from midfield.  Laura then won a short corner and we were unlucky not to score from this.  Flora, Rosanna and Catherine played particularly well in defence, and cleared ball after ball away in to midfield.  We conceded a short corner close to half time and Belhaven pounced on this opportunity and scored from this set piece.  We lost another short corner soon after this but a strong clear from Flora saved the day.


With the score at 1-1 at half time there was all to play for; Laura stayed high and scored again early in the half to push the score to 2-1.  Alannah worked her socks off and a great ball through from her found Hannah who neatly performed a drag right and shot hard which resulted in a great goal.  Belhaven fought back and scored soon after, albeit against the run of play but Clemmie soon pushed us comfortably ahead with a goal from the top of the D.  The play swung from end to end at this point and we conceded 2 more short corners.  From the latter of the short corners, Laura ran out strongly and got the ball away which caught Belhaven on the back foot and Fran neatly scored at the other end to bring the score to 5-2.  


What an exciting match this week for the 2nds and well done to both teams.

Lost 11 tries to 10


This match was an exciting game to watch with lots of action and free running. Both teams were keen on passing the ball but inevitably one or two talented, nippy boys on both teams dominated the scoring. In saying that it was pleasing to see how the boys played together as a team and supported each other in defence and attack. Cargilfield’s tackling was a little weak on occasion and allowed Clifton Hall to score some soft tries.


 


Well done, boys!

<p><strong>Won by 9 tries to 6</strong></p>
<p>On a rather sunny afternoon the U10’s took on Merchiston at home. The boys had worked hard in the run up to the game and I was pleased with their focus. The game started of fairly even with both sides having possession and scoring and then vice versa. However, in the second half Cargilfield started to steal the ball from the opposition more and scored quite a few quick tries, which gave us a healthy lead. I was pleased with the boys’ attacking play; they worked as a unit, supporting each other and make sure they used the space available. Their tackling was very good, which they followed up with the determined pursuit of the next player and this pushed the opposition back by twenty to thirty yards each time. An area I would like them to work on for their next match is to be aware of the defensive space they need to close down when the opposition have the ball.</p>

U11 Girl’s Hockey IAPS Scottish Qualifiers at Fettes


 


Game 1 – Cargilfield v Sedbergh (won 2-1)


We were lucky that as soon as the first whistle blew the sun started to shine. The girls managed to get a short corner very early on in play and used it to their advantage. Poppy scored but the girls generally needed to be much stronger in the D to score more goals. As soon as Anna came on the pitch to play she had a chance to score, but needed to be ready in the D and not miss passes. Katinka and Clemmie used some excellent team work to pass the ball down the side of the pitch, getting it into the D to give Anna the opportunity to score, which she used! Poppy tried incredibly hard to shoot again in the last few minutes of the game, using every opportunity she could. The girls could have scored several more goals but needed to be stronger in their passes to stop the opposition scoring and intercepting. A good first win and the girls were straight onto their next game.


 


Game 2 – Cargilfield v Fettes (lost 1-0)


The girls were tired from their first match, which was evident throughout this game. There was an element of panic from the girls as they hadn’t played Fettes yet this term. The girls got into Fettes D early on in the game but didn’t score – they needed to hit the ball harder. Fettes quickly gained possession of the ball and tried to score but Valentina made some great saves! Fettes gained 4 short corners due to Cargilfield panic hitting the ball in the D. Issy needed to slow down and think about where she was hitting the ball. Fettes scored with a really strong hit from the top of the D and Cargilfield tried to fight back in the last few minutes but needed to be stronger. The girls had a well-deserved break at the end of this match to re-fuel.

Game 3 – Cargilfield v St Mary’s (lost 1-0)


This was a great game, a real nail biter! Clara tried to score twice but once it came off the post and then the other was scored using her back stick so didn’t count. Cargilfield managed to get a short corner early on the game but didn’t take full advantage of the chance to score, despite their best efforts. Clemmie worked hard to play down the side of the pitch and brought the ball up into St Mary’s D several times using her strong and effective hits. The girls played strong in defence and worked brilliantly to stop more than one goal being scored by St Mary’s. An unfortunate loss at the end of this game.


 


Game 4 – Cargilfield v Newcastle GS (won 4-1)


The girls played a strong game and used the opportunity to score using the short corner they gained early on. Clemmie and Katinka worked brilliantly together, successfully passing and being strong in the D. Katinka then set up another lovely goal for Venetia to score. Unfortunately the girls became slightly complacent, allowing Royal Grammar to dribble quickly down the middle of the pitch and score. However, the girls fought back – Venetia passed the ball succesfully as Anna was waiting by the goal, ready to shoot. A good end to the game.


 


Games 5 – Cargilfield v Craigclowan (won 3-0)


The girls went onto the pitch feeling good about this game as they had already played Craigclowan this season and had won. However, the girls knew they had to give it their all as it was their final game. Poppy tried to score early on in the game but marginally missed! This didn’t stop her trying though as she scored later on in the game down to determination. This was quickly followed by Katinka, who scored two further goals. The final goal was a cracker; scored by Josephine in a short corner as the whistle blew.


Overall, the girls had a great day and enjoyed getting their medals for coming second in the tournament. St Mary’s won, with Fettes coming third. Thank you for your hospitality Fettes.

Overall, the girls had a great day and enjoyed getting their medals for coming second in the tournament. St Mary’s won, with Fettes coming third. Thank you for your hospitality Fettes.

Win 8-0


A resounding victory for Cargilfield in what turned out to be a pretty one sided affair. Cargilfield were definitely the stronger team from the outset, putting Belhaven on the back foot and having to defend throughout. After two early missed attempts at goal, Lulu scored after 5 minutes and her persistence paid off with a very accurate, strong goal scored. Then followed a second immediate goal for Lulu from the centre with some great passing shots to set up the goal from Fran and Matilda. A great attacking run from Lottie and strong shot on goal was narrowly missed goal and then a goal a minute followed for Lulu who scored two consecutively. A fantastic shot from Ruby was well saved by the Belhaven goalie just before half term and the girls finished the half 5-0 up.


Belhaven started the second half well with more attacking play which led to a great save from Cicely from one of their shots on goal. Cargilfield still remained strong and hungry for goals. Iona scored after 7 minutes of the second half, set up well by Mariella and Famke. Some great attacking play and pressure from Georgia was rewarded when she also scored mid-way through the second half. Georgia scored a second goal in the penultimate minute with a close range shot. Some great individual play from Judith followed as she made a run from the centre, ending in a super goal to finish off the match.


Well played girls!

<p>This was our 3<sup>rd</sup> game in 4 days against Belhaven albeit in the 8 a side format.  The game was end to end but Belhaven had the better first half by spreading the ball wide and supporting the ball carrier well.  We scored a couple of good tries but leaked another two close to the end of the first half, leaving us behind 6-2.  In the second half, after conceding almost straight away, we came back into the match and got the score to 8-5.  However, despite some break away tries by Glen and some powerful running by Albie, we went down 10-7. </p>
<p>Today, Belhaven showed us what you can do when you move the ball wide and then loop around to create overlaps.  In defence, we put in some crunching tackles but our supporting players weren’t up quick enough to steal the ball.  We were indecisive with the ball at times and hung onto it too long.  When we did get the ball out to the wingers, we didn’t support them and lost the ball at the breakdown.  Lots to work on ahead of Fettes on Friday but if we learn to work hard for each other and play with a stronger team spirit, we will improve as a unit. </p>

P3 had a great day today exploring Hopetoun House and the grounds. They spent half the day dressed up as Georgian servants, from the butler to the scullery maid. They were then put to work by the very formidable Mrs Ward, the head housekeeper. They then spent the afternoon tracking the rabbits, squirrels and deer that roam the grounds. They even managed to catch a few minibeasts themselves! 

A big thank you to the staff at the House for looking after us so well and making it such an interesting day.

A hugely enjoyable series of brass workshops took place at Cargilfield this afternoon with players from Ardvreck School, Fettes and Merchiston joining some of our own boys and girls. They spent the afternoon working together and then performed a terrific concert in front of their parents at the end of the day. Well done everyone and a big thank you to the music teachers who brought them along to take part!

It is in the Autumn Term of Form 7 that the children first encounter Pi (π) in their Maths lessons. 3.1415926…


Many have already heard of Pi, some even have an idea of how this remarkable irrational value might be used. Some already know that it is irrational and cannot be exactly represented as a simple fraction. No sequence is recurring and it is therefore assumed that any series of numbers could be found within it. As computing power grows, so does our ability to extend the known digits of Pi – the current record is over 22 trillion digits.


They may also know that an approximation of Pi was used by many ancient civilisations, including the Egyptians, Babylonians and Greeks. Their knowledge may even extend to mathematical calculations relating to features in nature.


Form 7 use is limited to two circle applications: calculating circumference and area, where Circumference = 2πr and Area = πr^2. The children use these formulas to calculate the perimeter and area of a variety of circle-related shapes, including semi-circles, quarter circles and annuli. Many children, however, have a curiosity about Pi which extends beyond its limited use in class and sooner or later they will ask, “”How did they (all those historical mathematicians) work out Pi?” So, for all of those minds curious about Pi, and knowing that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, here are some methods which may be used to find an approximation of Pi.


One method is to measure the circumference (perimeter) of a circle and then divide that by the diameter (the straight line passing from one side of a circle to the other through the centre). Cylinders are quite a good starting place, as they allow for easy measuring of the circumference.

rightColBody

For more accuracy, mathematical methods will be required, such as the method employed by Indian mathematician, Nilakantha Somayaji (1444-1544)


IMG 9535


The further this calculation is extended, the more accurate the approximation of Pi will be.


And perhaps the most fascinating way is based on Buffon’s needle; a probability approximation which combines the random tossing of toothpicks with a formula.


First divide up a sheet of paper into parallel lines which are the same distance apart as each toothpick is long, i.e. If the toothpicks are 8 cm long, make sure the parallel lines are 8 cm apart. Then randomly throw toothpicks onto the paper: more toothpicks = better results. After tossing, discard any toothpicks which are not completely on the paper then count up all of the remaining toothpicks, and also count up how many sticks are crossing one of the parallel lines.


Finally use this formula to approximate Pi:
Pi = 2 × (total number of toothpicks) ÷ (number of line-crossing toothpicks).


Ultimately, the children will use the π button on their calculators, which stores an approximation to about 10 digits and provides more than ample accuracy for their maths problems. Learning multiple digits of Pi is not essential although if anyone is particularly keen, the current recital record stands at 70 030 digits. If that’s a bit much then count up the letters in each word that makes up the title of this post.

The 1st Girls played in the annual Loretto 7’s tournament today and from the first minute, it was clear it was going to be a successful day.

Our first match was against Gullane Hockey Club; a bit of an unknown identity. Strangely, Gullane played without a goal keeper all match, however their defence was strong so the ball rarely travelled in to their circle. They were strong on the attack but they also could not penetrate our defence, and the game was largely played out in between the 2 midfields. We lacked a little strength at times on the ball but improved as the short game went on.
Cargilfield 0 Gullane Hockey Club 0

Our next match was against Belhaven. Belhaven started strongly and tested our defence. Amy played well and kept Belhaven out the goal. We managed to get the ball away and it was during one of these clearances that our first goal came from. Ellie played a lovely ball wide to Saphira who was greeted by a fairly empty D, and she turned, shot hard and scored our first goal. Spirits were at long last a little higher and we had a new spring in our step. Izzy broke away on the left and got the ball on her reverse then stuck it; I’m not sure who was more surprised – Izzy or the goal keeper – but the ball rocketed in to the top corner of the goal for what must surely be goal of the tournament. We kept the pressure on and won a short corner but didn’t manage to score from it. With the time ticking on, we lost a short corner however Ellie cleared it wide and the match ended as a win to Cargilfield.
Cargilfield 2 Belhaven 0

We played Loretto B after lunch and won this match comfortably. It was a good match to regroup a bit and gave the girls the boost they needed before the semi final. Sophie drove hard in to the D and scored a lovely goal after only 1 minute 30. We kept the pressure on and Sophie had another shot at goal which bounced off the post. Flora was on the ball (literally!) and took the rebound and scored neatly from that. Emma L was strong in this match and a good ball through from her fell to Sophie’s stick, and it was her turn to show off her reverse stick skills and she struck the ball sweetly on her reverse, straight in to the goal.
Cargilfield 4 Loretto B 0

Our run of success saw us finish top of our group and we were placed in to the main Cup semi final against Loretto. We looked a confident team from the start and Sophie piled on the pressure from the first minute. Saphira got on the end of a good pass from Sophie and scored the opening goal. Katie worked well in this match, trying hard to keep our shape and playing lovely and wide. Ellie moved well with the ball in this match and she found Flora who drove in to the D and had an early shot at goal which resulted in a well-deserved goal.
Cargilfield 2 Loretto 0

The final was against St Mary’s who we had beaten earlier in the week. We were caught sleeping a bit at the start and St Mary’s quickly scored against us. Saphira pressured the goal well and was unlucky not to score however we won a couple of short corners and managed to score from our second one. With the score at 1-1, neither team could break through, and despite a last minute run from Ellie who played the ball well in to the D, the game finished 1-1 and the dreaded running penalties beckoned.

Sophie stepped up to take the first one and ran well, dragging the ball nicely to the right and slotting it past the keeper. St Mary’s replied with a goal and Izzy then took her one, and also dragged it right and scored in the corner. Amy made a good save and Amelia scored her one. St Mary’s scored 2 more and with the scores tied up in til the last penalty, St Mary’s scored their final one which ended the running penalties. The girls were disappointed; losing on running penalties is never easy but I was very proud of the way they held their heads high and remained dignified in defeat. Well done to St Mary’s and thank you to Loretto for another great tournament.

Work began on our new astroturf development at half term in the Summer Term, involving a new three quarter size surface and a new three tennis court surface to replace our existing facility.

On October 1st, the new astroturf was handed over and the children have been desperate to get on it to play! There remains some landscaping work to do, including the construction of four all weather cricket nets, various storage sheds and a covered spectator walkway, but an exciting new era for sport at Cargilfield, with increased sporting opportunities for all, has begun!

Game 1 – Cargilfield v Loretto B (won 4-0)
With only 12 minutes a game the girls panicked slightly in their first game. The girls managed to get the ball into Loretto’s D quickly but they needed to be stronger with their hits to be successful in scoring goals. There was a few great saves by the Loretto goalie too. After about 7 minutes the girls settled into the game and started to score goals. Clemmie set up the goals nicely for Poppy and Katinka to score. Issy played well in defence, clearing the ball, but needed to calmly pass the ball and not panic.

Game 2 – Cargilfield v Cundall Manor (won 5-1)
Cundall Manor were very quick to score in the first few minutes of this game as Cargilfiled girls didn’t tackle. They learned from this experience and Katinka dribbled from centre pass scoring the next goal within seconds of the whistle being blown. This gave the girls the confidence to gain possession of the ball and score more goals throughout this game. Clara made an excellent tackle as Cundall Manor tried re-gain possession of the ball. Valentina made a great save in the last few minutes of the game as the opposition tried to score. The girls still need to be stronger in the D and score from the edge of the D.

Game 3 – Cargilfield v Ardvreck (won 4-0)
This was a stronger game for Cargilfield. Katinka dribbled from centre pass and scored early on in the game. Poppy tried being stronger in the D too, which paid off. However, the Ardvrreck goalie was really strong and made some excellent saves. There was some excellent passing in mid field between Clemmie and Clara. Josephine was playing confidently using the side of the pitch to her advantage. Cicley also moved around confidently in goals and saved a few great attempts by Ardvreck.

Cup Semi Final – Cargilfield v Gullane Hockey Club (lost 1-0)
Nerves got the better of the girls in this game. Gullane were a strong team and used their strength as soon as the whistle blew. They confidently dribbled down the pitch and scored. Cargilfield needed to be confident with tackling and communicate to one another. Cargilfield had several chances in the D to score but needed to be stronger with their hits to get a goal.

Plate Final – Cargilfield v Cundall Manor (1-1 – Won on Penalties)
Having played Cundall Manor in the tournament already, the girls went into their final game with slightly more confidence. However, they were tired after a long day, which did show at points in the match. Being strong in the D will be a key area that the girls will work on in training as they had several attempts at goals in the D. There was an element of panic in defence which led to Cundall Manor scoring their only goal. However, Valentina and Cicley both played brilliantly in the final game as goalies. A great team effort. Due to the draw, it came to running penalties to which Poppy, Katinka and Clemmie volunteered. They took this challenge on confidently and succesfully scored

1stVII Runners Up at the Loretto Sevens

A terrific day of rugby which ended with defeat to Belhaven in the Final, but the boys can take so much from what was a hugely positive and encouraging day with some outstanding sevens on show. Despite missing one or two boys, others came in and did a great job, and despite losing Todd, the skipper, in the second game, we really dug deep and every member of the squad played their part in the team’s success.

To many neutral observers, we played the best rugby of the day and it was lovely to see the ball being moved from side to side, reloading and going again, working defences across the field until the gap appeared – traditional sevens but that needs fitness, concentration, patience, high skill levels and the ability to perform under pressure, something we showed in bucketfuls today.

Belhaven deservedly won the Final, but we ran them close, and it was a couple of defensive lapses which gifted them two tries which was the difference in the end. We certainly have a solid base on which to build before the Ardvreck Sevens at the end of half term, and if we can tighten up defensively, and not give away silly tries when we are ahead, then it could be a different story when we head up to Crieff.

An excellent day in so many ways and although there were a lot of tired bodies at the end, I could not have asked much more. Another day to be very proud of this group of boys.

Perfect pictograms – This week the Nursery children have focused their learning on ‘The Gruffalo’. We have worked with our friends in nursery to find things in the nursery garden which remind us of woodlands and the setting where ‘The Gruffalo’ is based. The children selected a number of fantastic things including; leaves, conkers, berries, leaves, apples and sticks. Some of us then created pictograms using the items which had found to help us count and display them.
