The children in P1 had a fantastic Science and Computing workshop this afternoon. As part of our topic on toys, the children learnt all about robots and programming using lego! After learning what robots can be used for, they learnt the first two rules of programming. They found out that robots do exactly what they are told and that it is very important for instructions to be in order. They were then given their mission; to program robots for the World Cup Football team. They worked together to build lego robot goalkeepers and then used blocks to program their goalkeeper to move. They then tested their robot by seeing if they could score goals against it. Such a fun afternoon for all!

I always brace myself for the response to when I ask the question, “what do you know about Islam?” for I never quite know what I might get.  As predicted, the word ISIS is mentioned and I know at that point, that whatever I planned that lesson, will go right out the window.  For this is what I love about teaching Religious Studies.  Not only is it a chance to impart knowledge of the world’s major religions (brag over), but more importantly it is an opportunity to right the misconceptions that are forever being raised by platformssuch as social media and the press, in order to create a “good story”.  

In a world that is ever changing, one can’t open a newspaper without some reference to religion and as such, tolerance has never been more important.  And whilst history is full of blood and violence where religion is concerned, whether it is the Babylonian wars in Old Testament times (studied in Forms 5 and 6), the Crusades, the martyrdom of Sikhism, the conflict during India’s independence and the Holocaust, each religion has its part to play in the history of religious conflict.  After all, as the saying goes, one man’s terrorist, is another man’s freedom fighter.  There is no doubt that interpretation has a lot to answer to, as does the culture versus religion debate; these latter two are not synonymous and will forever be an ongoing battle to separate.

And that is why the teaching of religion is now, more than ever, such a vital part of the overall education of the young generation coming though.  Whatever the reasoning behind these events, our children need to understand that at the heart of all faith are the core values – treating others well and living a life in the way that fulfils this.  The very slim minority that don’t do this should not taint the vast majority of those that do, and this is what I hope the children of Cargilfield understand.

P2 goes into space!

Not every day you come into school to find your classroom cordoned off with ‘spacesuit required’ warning signs! This is what greeted P2 this morning as they came in and discovered, to their delight, that an entire space ship had appeared in their classroom overnight! Complete with lounging area, kitchen, laboratory and viewing platform the P2s spent the morning being put through their paces, trying various tasks that astronauts would experience on a journey through space.

This started with a tricky challenge of using our ‘space gloves’. Not the easiest of equipment we realised as we tried to construct our best model rocket out of wooden bricks without knocking it back down! Next, we gazed out our viewing platform pensively at some star constellations and created the pretty patterns we saw with chalks. Then we took on the fiddly task of creating a chain to attach ourselves to for a spacewalk. We stuck at this with determination and created some impressively long chains! We even got to try some dehydrated astronaut food! There were very mixed opinions as we nibbled some breakfast ‘rice’, rather dry ‘bread’ for lunch and dehydrated ‘beef’ for dinner. Some of us realised we really couldn’t be fussy eaters if we were to be astronauts one day!

Whilst there was much fun to be had we came to the conclusion that life must be quite a challenge being an astronaut! That being said, I think we’ve encouraged an entire year group of budding astronauts in one morning! Beam us up Scotty!

It was a well fought match this week with a tough team from Loretto who weren’t afraid to go for the ball. In the first half we moved well around the court with Katinka, Josephine and Clara making sure the ball was quickly passed up the court. Clemmie was fantastic at getting into space around the D and both her and Amenah scored some good goals leaving us at 7-3 in the first half. In the second half Loretto put us under more pressure but Vanetia (player of the match) and Issy did especially well to defend against their shooters. Valentina joined as centre and passed effectively to Poppy who did well to get into space. We maintained a lead with great determination from all the girls. The final score was a 12-8 win to us.

The Under Nine girls had a further opportunity to play Loretto so this time we brought 13 girls, the rest of the U9 squad. Esme was the only girl to play again as she kindly took the place of Savannah who is ill. She played very well indeed and was judged man of the match, scoring six goals and creating lots of opportunities in her role as GA. Amalia also played very well moving energetically to defend the D and having to play without a GK. She proved to be very effective as Loretto only scored one goal. Nadia struggled to get the ball past tall defenders but she tried hard. Bea got the ball moving well down to the shooters and Hattie and Bonnie put in some good passes. Final score Cargilfield Spots 6 Loretto 1

The second match was a much closer affair and resulted in a draw. Lucy and Tunrayo worked well as a shooting partnership and Lyla was very mobile around the pitch. Two lovely goals form Lucy! Some of our passes went awry and some players need to work harder on their concentration and on watching the ball. We could have won the game had we all played our best. However we enjoyed the game and settled for the final score of Cargilfield Stripes 2 Loretto 2

Having had Sedbergh visit us before half term, it was nice to welcome Loretto to Cargilfield for our first home hockey match against Scottish opposition!

We played some great hockey with Cody pulling the strings in midfield and scoring a few goals. Harry scored a nice deflection from a well-worked penalty corner. We were quite quiet in the first period and I asked for the boys to be a bit more vocal in terms of encouragement not just after doing things well but also if we made mistakes. We let frustration get the better of ourselves and we always play much better with our chins up. This improved in the middle period and we linked up better on the right with Glen making some good runs to the base line and looking up to get a cross or pull back in. Charles had a nice finish at the back post before Ollie came on up front and scored with an excellent squeezed shot at goal.

Albie didn’t have much to do but commanded his goal well and did lots of talking at the back. Rory was solid as usual in defence and Harry looked to link up with him to transition the ball. Murray showed some good skill at left back and James played well on the right and made some good runs after replacing Glen on the right wing. Luca capped a fine performance off by following up a move and finishing at the back post. Cody was given man of the match for his skill in midfield but also for looking to bring the wider players into the game and put the ball into space.

We still have to work on some basics such as moving into space and giving a lead to our team mates and passing with a little more zip and accuracy but we have lots of time and we will get there before we head south in the middle of March.

Blues: Won 5-1

The Blues started well and found themselves in control of the match quite quickly. We played well as an attacking unit and had many opportunities on goal. Unfortunately, a lot of these opportunities were squandered by a lack of communication in the attacking unit. This is an area that I will be working on with them in training next week. However, we did convert quite a few chances into goal. I was also pleased with the defence. They did the job of breaking up attacks and clearing the ball well. A little more confidence needs to be had when taking a hit out. We shall work on marking the opposition next week as an area to improve on.

Stripes: Won 7-0

The Stripes also started on the front foot and dominated possession in the match. I was pleased with the attack playing the ball into the wide areas and then crossing the ball neatly into the D. The communication between the players was good and allowed them to zip the ball around the pitch and create a lot of opportunities. The defence held a solid line and broke up each attack that came their way. We shall also work on marking the opposition, which will improve their overall game.

Well done, boys!

The 3rd boys hockey team travelled away to play Loretto – the third match this term against this opposition for a number of the boys. Having won both of our previous encounters, the boys hoped to keep the streak going.

The boys maintained possession of the ball at the start of play and this enabled a series of attacks in the opposition D but it took a full five minutes of attack until their patience paid off and the first goal was scored. The remainder of the half continued in the same vein and the boys were able to add three more goals to their tally.

In the second half, Loretto came back strong, determined to make a match of it, but the boys held steady for 15 minutes scoring again to take them 5 goals up. Energy began to wane though and Loretto seized their opportunity to respond with two well worked goals.

The match ended 5-2.

Although all of the boys played well, man of the match, Oliver, deserves a special mention for his untiring work rate and competent finishing in front of goal.

The girls were on top form today and absolutely everyone gave 100% throughout the match. I was incredibly impressed with their hard work and positivity. Their team work shone through and they were supportive of each other and worked brilliantly together. We started off strongly in what was a face paced first quarter and ended with a goal from Laura taking us ahead. In the 2nd quarter we capitalised on this. Calia and Rosanna were brilliant in defence and Izzy, Bethany , Flora and Saphira worked incredibly hard to feed the ball up to our shooters. Clemmie came into her own in the second half and scored some brilliant goals from the back of the D. Flora impressed me with her dynamism around the court making some brilliant interceptions. Alannah had a shot a Centre, something she had not tried before but which will definitely add another string to her bow.

Very well done girls. A fantastic performance and your best yet.

Final score

Cargilfield 9, Fettes 3

The 1st girls had a bit of an uneven match this week against Ardvreck. We started strongly and soon found ourselves comfortably in the lead. Amelia and Amy consistently found the net and the Ardvreck team struggled to keep up. We intercepted well and with the score at 18-4 at half time, it was clear we were needing to move the positions round to keep the game worthwhile. Ellie and Katie stepped in to shoot and sadly for Ardvreck, Ellie kept scoring! Amy was moved back to GK and like Ellie, was too efficient in her new position too! Catherine and Flora stepped in to shoot in the last quarter and there were cheers when Flora scored the one and only goal of the quarter! Sophie played with great spirit and a good sense of humour as GK against the tallest Ardvreck player who was literally double her size, and it brought a smile to everyone as she tried valiantly to mark someone so tall.

Well done to all – a fun match this week for both sides.
