The nursery children decided they would like to make a winter display in the classroom this term so we have been working together to create a winter scene. The children have worked really hard on creating; penguins, polar bears, snowy owls and a personalised igloo as part of the display! Well done nursery, a fantastic effort.

The pre-school children did an experiment this morning which looked at how bears stay warm in winter; they wrapped a plastic bottle filled with hot water in paper (Betty) and wrapped another bottle of hot water with 'fur' (Bob). Bob was then put in a box in the nursery den in the garden and Betty was left outside in the garden. After lunch we checked the bottles and Bob was so much warmer than Betty!

Form 6 reading in the nursery - Mr Fleming's form class came to read to the children in nursery on Thursday. The children from Form 6, many of who were in the nursery at Cargilfield themselves, came to read some stories to the boys and girls. It was a lovely afternoon and great to see children of all ages enjoying reading together.

It was a glorious sunny morning as P2 set off on their trip to Dynamic Earth to embark on our topic mission for this term ‘to discover more about space and our universe!’ We certainly weren’t disappointed with our jam packed day, filled with excitement right from the start, visiting a 4D cinema complete with 3D shark (yes it was terrifying!), fossil digging with Terry the Triceratops and we got to handle some real magnetic moon rocks! We even travelled right back to the beginning of time and watched the ‘Big bang’ explode above our heads!

Some of the things we discovered we couldn’t even believe! Did you know that human beings are actually made of stars!? Or that the first animal in space was actually a dog?! Our brains were filled with fascinating and interesting facts and we came away with a whole universe of inspiring questions, which no doubt we can start to answer as our topic unfolds over the term!

I couldn’t think of a better topic to take our imaginations right out of this world!

Thank you to Debbie from The Spartans Community Football Academy for coming to talk to us about the fantastic work the charity does in Edinburgh. It’s one of our chosen charities for the year voted for by the children here at Cargilfield.

Many thanks to Dr Ridley who came to Cargilfield to lead a highly enjoyable Composition Workshop with some of our musicians on Thursday evening.

We heard a real variety of pieces including a song and pieces for wind trio, string trio, bassoon and piano, small orchestra as well as some more unusual instrumental combinations. Dr Ridley picked out the main elements and features of each piece, talking particularly about melody, rhythm and harmony, and encouraged us to be self-reflective. He also asked us to think about what our starting point was in a composition and how much we planned the ‘route ahead’ from the start of writing a piece.

Well done to the participants who really had to apply their knowledge of musical structures and terminology to keep up with Dr Ridley! It was lovely to hear individual musical personalities reflected in each person’s work.
