Our group of Form 7 sailors have enjoyed the last two days on board Ocean Spirit, the yacht of Gordonstoun, as they have sailed around the west coast. The weather has been mixed but they have worked so well together and made some real memories made.

A big thank you to Gordonstoun for the opportunity!

What a tremendous evening’s entertainment Form 7 gave us performing their own version of Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves! In the open air around the tree house, with the evening sun shining, there were puns aplenty and lots of laughter from the audience (and the cast!) as the entertaining story unfolded and we even had a dancing German camel! Great fun indeed! Very well done to all those involved; a terrific production and a lot of fun.

P3 went to RSPB Tayside and Fife at Loch Leven to learn all about the mini beasts that live all around us. They trapped their own insects and inspected them using maginifying glasses. They also pondipped, looking for underwater mini beasts. Earth worms, dragonflies, beetles, flies, slugs, water beetles, sticklebacks and tadpoles are just some of the creatures discovered on this fantastic trip!

leftColBody

We headed to Merchiston for the 3rd and final match in our ‘Tri-Series’ and thank you to them for giving us the extra fixtures.  Once again, the squad was refreshed and some of those 3rd XI players who have stood out in training, were given the chance to show what they could do.  Having lost the toss, we went into bat and William and Leo opened.  Leo went after just 1 run but in came Ramsay to play very well alongside William.  William made some quick singles whilst Ramsay at the other end, played the big powerful shots.  Their partnership of 48 ended when Ramsay hit his own wicket and William went just after.  Lachie scored 1 and in came Mungo to partner Ollie and with both players on 0, it felt like we were starting again from scratch.  Both Form 7 boys batted extremely well with Ollie making some great runs and rotating the strike and Mungo, in his first appearance for the 2nds, timing some lovely shots to the off side.  They took us on to over 120 runs before Ollie was retired and Mungo fell to a straight delivery.  The tail enders made a few to get us to 134/6.

rightColBody

After match tea, Maclean opened the bowling with Joshua and both bowlers kept the run rate very low with their accurate deliveries.  The breakthrough came from Edward who pitched it short to allow the batman to pop one up to Maclean at mid-off.  Two wickets fell in Joel’s first over and Finn bowled a beauty to dismiss one of their more dangerous players.  ‘Safe-hands Maclean’ was there again to take two excellent catches, including one from his own delivery and when Joshua caught the ball to give Edward’s his  second wicket, we were so close to getting them all out and just a dropped catch on the final delivery preventing us doing so.

Another win for the 2nd XI gives them an unbeaten first half of term and this was a good team performance with two players in particular standing out – Ollie for his superb batting and Maclean for his fielding.  Well done, boys!

introTextAnother impressive display with bat and ball
image/cms/resources/ad704aae-ad33-4d13-a5e5-edc21b79772e.jpeg
imageAltCricket
leftColBody

Another glorious summer’s afternoon over in Musselburgh today and playing on the beautiful 1stXI square, we really did hit our straps today and put in very nearly the complete performance to convincingly beat a good Loretto side by 82 runs. A very strong batting display meant we are able to rotate the bowling quite a lot and this allowed us to look a little bit towards next year as Max, Edward and Quin all bowled good spells taking wickets at regular intervals and run scoring was very difficult. The boys played some really impressive cricket today and once again, we showed real strength in depth in all areas of the game.

Harry won the toss again and elected to bat first, and I was keen to see how we would bounce back after a poor batting performance last week against Fettes (despite winning the game easily after a superb bowling performance). Jack and Harry opened and Loretto, once again, bowled tightly as they had done two weeks ago when we played them in the rain; we were 16-0 off five overs, playing each ball on its merit and running well too. Then Jack succumbed to a straight one and played across the line which brought Sebastian to the crease. He has worked really hard in the nets and I felt it important to give him the opportunity to bat high in the order against good bowling to see if he could build an innings; together, they put on 63 in exactly ten overs, upping the run rate and batting well together. 

I always say how crucial it is that batters bat together, encourage each other, speak to each other and keep each other mentally strong, and the skipper certainly kept Sebastian on his toes with plenty of quick singles taken too! After a slightly hesitant start, Seb got his feet moving much better, and he hit the two shots of the match with consecutive textbook cover drives hit very hard along the ground to the boundary; a terrific knock of 24 off 32 balls, but ended slightly farcically as he jogged through for a single and was run out failing to ground his bat. A disappointing end to a super innings, but one he will hopefully learn from – total focus and concentration is required and not to throw it away having got in!

Harry went on and on, reaching his 50 off 56 balls and then accelerated at just the right time, scoring 23 off just 13 as we pushed on in the final few overs, reaching 151-4 off our 25 overs. It was Harry’s best innings of the season, full of technically correct shots, playing each ball on its merit, and quick to capitalise on scoring opportunities be that taking singles when the field was pushed back, or else playing forcing shots through the gaps. A joy to watch; well batted. A very good score given the quality of the bowling, and I was really pleased with how we bounced back from last week.

rightColBody

In reply, Vinjero and Harry bowled miserly three over spells, each giving nothing away and Harry picking up the key wicket, bowling their captain for just 3. The pair of them bowl in really good areas, forcing the batsmen to play and backed up by excellent fielding, cutting off run scoring opportunities which then forces the batsmen to play false shots. Edward and Will were the change bowlers and again both bowled very well indeed with Will picking up two wickets for just 5 runs in his 4 overs; he continues to work hard and his left arm bowling is going to be a real handful in the next few years. Our top four bowlers produce the goods time and time again and are very hard to score off. So 35-4 off 14 overs, game done and dusted.

However, this was the perfect opportunity to rotate the bowling round and Max and Quin bowled extended spells this afternoon which bodes well for next year. Max bowled a fantastic spell of 5 overs, 1 maiden, taking 4 wickets for just 8 runs; he bowled very straight if truth be told which is half the battle, but Todd once again snaffled a couple of excellent catches behind the stumps and there was also a fantastic run out from Jack who had an excellent afternoon in the field. Impressive and really encouraging, and although we could have wrapped things up much earlier, it was important to give others a go and perform under pressure out in the middle. It is always different from bowling in the nets, and today was the ideal situation to try things out. So Loretto ended 69-9 and a comfortable and convincing win.

They have been our strongest opposition this term so far, and it was good to lock horns with Peter again, once of this parish, who was very complimentary about the quality of cricket we played today. It has been an outstanding first half of term and this group of boys have played some really good cricket over the past 4 weeks. Now, the focus is on exams and F8 camp, but after that we have the Merchiston Super 8s, and matches against SMC, Carlton CC and Ardvreck still to come so there is a lot of cricket still to play once Common Entrance is out of the way!

Very well played today, boys. Another impressive team effort, and your Lucas ice cream afterwards was well deserved!

Another glorious summer’s afternoon over in Musselburgh today and playing on the beautiful 1stXI square, we really did hit our straps today and put in very nearly the complete performance to convincingly beat a good Loretto side by 82 runs. A very strong batting display meant we are able to rotate the bowling quite a lot and this allowed us to look a little bit towards next year as Max, Edward and Quin all bowled good spells taking wickets at regular intervals and run scoring was very difficult. The boys played some really impressive cricket today and once again, we showed real strength in depth in all areas of the game.

Harry won the toss again and elected to bat first, and I was keen to see how we would bounce back after a poor batting performance last week against Fettes (despite winning the game easily after a superb bowling performance). Jack and Harry opened and Loretto, once again, bowled tightly as they had done two weeks ago when we played them in the rain; we were 16-0 off five overs, playing each ball on its merit and running well too. Then Jack succumbed to a straight one and played across the line which brought Sebastian to the crease. He has worked really hard in the nets and I felt it important to give him the opportunity to bat high in the order against good bowling to see if he could build an innings; together, they put on 63 in exactly ten overs, upping the run rate and batting well together. 

I always say how crucial it is that batters bat together, encourage each other, speak to each other and keep each other mentally strong, and the skipper certainly kept Sebastian on his toes with plenty of quick singles taken too! After a slightly hesitant start, Seb got his feet moving much better, and he hit the two shots of the match with consecutive textbook cover drives hit very hard along the ground to the boundary; a terrific knock of 24 off 32 balls, but ended slightly farcically as he jogged through for a single and was run out failing to ground his bat. A disappointing end to a super innings, but one he will hopefully learn from – total focus and concentration is required and not to throw it away having got in!

Harry went on and on, reaching his 50 off 56 balls and then accelerated at just the right time, scoring 23 off just 13 as we pushed on in the final few overs, reaching 151-4 off our 25 overs. It was Harry’s best innings of the season, full of technically correct shots, playing each ball on its merit, and quick to capitalise on scoring opportunities be that taking singles when the field was pushed back, or else playing forcing shots through the gaps. A joy to watch; well batted. A very good score given the quality of the bowling, and I was really pleased with how we bounced back from last week.

In reply, Vinjero and Harry bowled miserly three over spells, each giving nothing away and Harry picking up the key wicket, bowling their captain for just 3. The pair of them bowl in really good areas, forcing the batsmen to play and backed up by excellent fielding, cutting off run scoring opportunities which then forces the batsmen to play false shots. Edward and Will were the change bowlers and again both bowled very well indeed with Will picking up two wickets for just 5 runs in his 4 overs; he continues to work hard and his left arm bowling is going to be a real handful in the next few years. Our top four bowlers produce the goods time and time again and are very hard to score off. So 35-4 off 14 overs, game done and dusted.

However, this was the perfect opportunity to rotate the bowling round and Max and Quin bowled extended spells this afternoon which bodes well for next year. Max bowled a fantastic spell of 5 overs, 1 maiden, taking 4 wickets for just 8 runs; he bowled very straight if truth be told which is half the battle, but Todd once again snaffled a couple of excellent catches behind the stumps and there was also a fantastic run out from Jack who had an excellent afternoon in the field.

On a blustery day at Merchiston, Max won the toss and elected to bat, Diederik and James made full use of the pitch and got Cargilfield off to an absolute flyer off the first four overs.

This continued throughout with some solid batting from Theo and Oscar laying a foundation for our remaining batsmen to blast our way to 135 off our 20 overs. Key to this total was the running between the wickets from the whole group alongside impressive power hitting from Cameron, Duncan and Alex.

Our bowling was consistently good with Chay, Duncan and Oliver bowling particularly economically resulting in Merchiston having to force the game, leading too a comfortable 43 run victory for Cargilfield.

Lost to Loretto 8 ½ to 3

Lost to St Mary’s 10 to 2 ½

We had a super afternoon down in Melrose for a mini triangular tournament with the Under 10 girls. Against stiff opposition, the girls played well and have made great improvements in their games over the last few weeks.

In the first match against Loretto, there was some great fielding by Isobel who was able to retrieve long balls and Judith made two great catches (in almost exactly the same place)! A solid bowling and backstop performance by Mariella and Annika, teaming up with Lottie at 1st to make a good triangle. Mariella also scored a great rounder in the batting innings, with Lola and Famke also scoring.

Against St Mary’s, Anna batted very well to score an excellent rounder and 2 half rounders. Lara, Bea and Sophia also had some good hits of the ball and were unlucky not to score from these. St Mary’s had some very strong batters and scored some good rounders but the girls remained competitive in the field with some great deep fielding again from Isobel.

Well done to all the girls for trying hard and being excellent representatives of the school. It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in the borders in wonderful surroundings and with great team spirit.

Flower and Leaf Prints on Cloth - Following the 'Outdoor Learning' conference which Mrs Millar and Mrs Murray went to at the beginning of the Summer term.  They have come back with some wonderful ideas which the children have loved experimenting with this week.  Some of the children have been creating flower and leaf prints on cloth, using flowers from the nursery garden, linen cloth and a hammer!  The children have loved foraging in the nursery garden and using 'real' tools as part of their learning.  Meanwhile Mrs Murray has been creating garden inspired clay wall hangings with other children in nursery.  Fantastic to see lots of new ideas and pedagogy being used in nursery!

The Under Nines enjoyed some fine rounders in the sun against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and whilst our striking of the ball was not great we were able to achieve a large number of half rounders by running around the pitch. Some girls did hit but unfortunately not into spaces which might have allowed them to score. Esme and Tunrayo did manage to bat more successfully however, scoring fine individual rounders. Athena, Nadia and Natasha were unfortunately stumped but our innings of 30 balls still delivered 11 ½ rounders. Loretto were unable to match this total, despite gaining some half rounders from no balls. Izzy and Lucy worked hard on getting girls out at first and getting Loretto’s first batter out was an achievement. Final score Cargilfield 11 ½ Loretto 4

The match against St Mary’s was a much closer affair with some super fielding from St Mary’s, getting the ball back to their bowler very quickly and neatly and stopping us from scoring half rounders on no hits. This time it was Maddie and Lucy who batted well and scored full rounders but we managed to score several half rounders. We scored a total of 8 ½. St Marys’ went into bat and Esme’s bowling had a bit of a dip. She battled on however and I was pleased to see that she did not let it affect her. Jemina and Beatrice played well scoring individual rounders but we tried hard and got four of their nine girls out. Amalia almost got one of their batters out but apparently missed the post! We held them to a final score of seven rounders. Final score Cargilfield 8 ½ St Mary’s 7

Well done, girls! We must improve on our batting but good progress overall!

The Under Nines enjoyed some fine rounders in the sun against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and whilst our striking of the ball was not great we were able to achieve a large number of half rounders by running around the pitch. Some girls did hit but unfortunately not into spaces which might have allowed them to score. Esme and Tunrayo did manage to bat more successfully however, scoring fine individual rounders. Athena, Nadia and Natasha were unfortunately stumped but our innings of 30 balls still delivered 11 ½ rounders. Loretto were unable to match this total, despite gaining some half rounders from no balls. Izzy and Lucy worked hard on getting girls out at first and getting Loretto’s first batter out was an achievement. Final score Cargilfield 11 ½ Loretto 4

2nd Rounders v Loretto and St Mary’s

We played one innings of 20 balls against Loretto. We were fielding first and took a little while to get into our stride. Clara made some super throws form far in the Deep off third base. Loretto batted first and scored 3 1/2 rounders. Saphira went into bat first and hit a super shot straight into the Deep behind third base. She did this again off ball 10. Hannah and Clemmie also scored a half rounder. However, our batting was not quite as good as usual and we ended the match just behind Loretto.

Final score Cargilfield 3, Loretto 3 ½

We were much more proactive in our second match against St Mary’s. We were batting first and this time Saphira, Hannah, Caitlin, Emma, Calia and Bethany all scored. Our fielding was much tighter too although we need to work a bit on making sure we keep the ball ahead of the runner when we are fielding. Again the match was almost too close to call with a narrow win for St Mary’s.

Final score Cargilfield 6, St Mary’s 6 ½

PS a big well done for Lucie who played for Loretto and made a new friend from France at the same time.

1st Rounders v St Mary’s and Loretto

Won v 16 – 2 ½ v Loretto

Lost 5 ½ - 3 v St Mary’s

The 1st girls played a triangular today against Loretto and St Mary’s. We played Loretto first and had comfortable match, never looking much under pressure. Our trio of Rosanna, Sophie and Amelia worked well and they put players out at post 1 on balls 6, 7, 8 and 12. The Loretto girls tried hard but our fielding was good and catches from Katie on ball 13 and Ellie on ball 17 saw their team down to 3 and they were out after 21 balls. Our batting was good today and the girls ran extremely well round the posts. Scores from Sophie (3), Amelia (2 ½ ), Katie (3), Ellie (3), Flora (2 ½ ), Izzy ( ½ ), Emma ( ½ ) and Alannah (1) saw us push ahead to a total of 16.

Our next match was against St Mary’s and it was clear early on that this was going to be a much tougher one. We batted first and the girls looked a little nervy and not as relaxed as the previous match. The St Mary’s girls fielded deep, and we struggled to get to post 2, with no full rounders being scored throughout the match. Izzy played a gutsy game and she was our high scorer with 1 ½ . With only 3 scored, we needed to play a blinder in the fielding innings and to be fair, we played well, but the St Mary’s girls were too strong in their batting. Izzy made a great catch on ball 16 and we managed to keep the score down to only 1 rounder after 18 balls so it really was all to play for, but we gave away a couple of soft half rounders and the game slipped away from us.

The nursery children have been growing all sorts of wonderful fruit and vegetables in the nursery allotment this year.  The children harvested the radishes earlier this week and decided to sell them to raise money for the nursery eco fund!  Some of the children designed their own posters and signs and then created a 'radish stall' outside the nursery cloakroom where they sold their radishes at the end of the morning and afternoon sessions.  A super enterprising initiative!

It was a pleasure to welcome Mr James Outram, Registrar at The King's School, Canterbury, to preach in Chapel this morning. Justine and Zoe have both been at King’s in the recent past and William is heading down there in September.

He spoke to us about how we use our time every day and how busy we are in our day to day lives. He told us that boredom is sometimes a good thing to experience the feelings of being reflective, to plan, to have down time to recharge and to know our own thoughts which is something we are not good at achieving in our busy, helter skelter lives. Of course, there needs to be a happy balance as we need change and challenge in our lives to keep us stimulated!

We started the week this week with a fantastic trip to the Cramond foreshore with the pre-school children! We took part in The ‘Cool Seas Clean Up’ event which was organised by the Marine Conservation Society to promote science and learning around environmental issues which coastal areas are facing. We had to help collect waste products that had ended up washed up on the shore at Cramond, spoiling our environment and causing our sea creatures much harm. We thought about the materials and products that we dispose of on a regular basis and how this impacts on our local area. We all recorded what we found which made us think about being more careful with what we throw away in future! We even weighed the bag of litter that we had collected and were shocked to hear that it was 7 kilograms. We then enjoyed an environmentally friendly packed lunch and finished our trip by making a sea creature using the wet sand.

Fun in the Garden- The nursery children have been having SO much fun in the nursery garden over the last few weeks.

Fun in the Garden- The nursery children have been having SO much fun in the nursery garden over the last few weeks. We have been building all sorts of wonderful dens, pretending we are the fire brigade, washing the playhouse, bathing the nursery dolls and watering the flowers planted by the nursery gardening club.

We put all the Nursery children's names in a hat and Mrs Thomson picked out 10 names who then helped to deliver Oor Wullie to the Edinburgh Children's Hospital Charity offices at Shawfair. The children saw lots of the other 'Oor Wullie' sculptures which have been decorated by other nurseries and schools in Edinburgh. We all got a balloon and a sticker for our efforts!

introTextAn important milestone

Parents often ask how they can help their children with learning to read as they are very aware of what an important role it plays in future academic success. Reading helps develop intellect, increase vocabulary, improve writing and spelling all of which increase self-confidence and build motivation.

Learning to read does not happen overnight. It involves a series of stages and these can begin from when a child is months old. It takes time to pass through these stages and children require systematic teaching and lots of practice to move through them successfully.

The Pre-reader:

  • Likes to look at books and be read to
  • Likes to behave like a reader e.g. holds books and pretends to read them
  • Learns about letters by looking at books, playing with letter blocks or magnetic letters
  • Learns about words from stories, traffic signs and logos on food packages.
  • Learns how text works e.g. where a story starts and finishes and that the print runs from left to right.
  • Begins to understand that their own thoughts can be put into print
  • Uses pictures and memory[cb1] to tell and retell a story

The Emerging Reader

  • Is ready to receive reading instruction
  • Learns that text is a common way to tell a story or to convey information
  • Begins to match written words to spoken words and perceive the relationship between sounds and letters
  • Begins to experiment with reading, and is willing to say words out loud when reading simple texts
  • Finds the pictures helpful in understanding the text, and learns that the words convey a message consistent with the pictures

The Early Reader

  • Develops more confidence and uses a variety of methods such as word building or visual cues to identify words in texts.
  • Adapts reading to different kinds of texts
  • Has an increasingly wide sight vocabulary of words, knows a lot about reading and is willing to try new texts

The Fluent Reader

  • Has an extensive sight vocabulary of words
  • Uses a variety of methods to identify unknown words and their meanings
  • Reads a range of texts and predicts events in a story
  • Relates what is read to their own experience and understands new concepts.

How you can help your child on the journey to becoming a fluent reader?

As a parent you are your child’s first and most important teacher. Reading aloud to children is the best way to get them interested in reading. It is natural to want to compare your child’s reading abilities with those of children of the same age, but not all children develop reading skills at the same pace. What’s important is that you are aware of your child’s reading level so you can chose books and activities which are appropriate and will help develop their skills.

rightColBody

Tip 1: Talk to your child

Oral language is the foundation of reading. Listening and speaking are a child’s first introduction to language. Talk to your child as much as possible about the things you are doing and thinking and encourage them to do the same. Ask them lots of questions, sing songs, playing rhyming and riddle games. Be patient and allow them time to find the words they want to use.

Tip 2: Make Reading Fun

The more you enjoy the reading experience, the more your child will enjoy it. Read aloud with drama and excitement, use different voices for different characters. Re-read favourite books as many times as your child wants to hear them, and choose books from authors your child enjoys. Read stories with repetitive parts and encourage your child to join in. Choose new books together and ensure these cover all the different genres. When reading track the print with your finger so the connection is made between the word on the page and those being heard.

Tip 3: Read Every Day

Children love routine, and reading is something you can both look forward to every day. By taking the time to read with your child, you show them that reading is important as well as fun. Reading with your child is the best thing you can do to help them learn at school. Keep reading to your child even once they are able to read for themselves. This will keep their interest alive and hearing stories they aren’t yet able to access themselves, will stretch understanding and widen knowledge.

Tip 4: Set an Example

As a parents, you are your child’s most important role model. If your child sees you reading, especially for pleasure or information, they will understand that reading is a worthwhile activity. Talking about books is just as important as reading them. Discussing a story or book will help your child understand it and connect it to their own experience of life. It also helps to enrich vocabulary.

Tip 5: Listen to your Child Read

As your child learns to read, listen to them read aloud as often as you can. Choosing a time when there will be no interruptions is essential. As you listen, remember that your reactions are important. Listen without interrupting, be enthusiastic and give specific praise. Patience and encouragement really are key. Guide your child in their choice of books and steer them away from ones which are too difficult. Give your child time to work out tricky words, get them to try the following strategies:

  • Think about what word would make sense in the sentence.
  • Sound the word out
  • Think of a word which looks and sounds similar
  • Look for parts of the word that are familiar
  • Think about which word would sound right in the sentence.
  • Check the pictures and punctuation marks for clues.
  • Go back and read it again
  • Ask for help with the word

Finally, remember you can always ask me or your child’s teacher for help and guidance.

Happy reading!

On Friday, it was a pleasure to welcome Tom Sole back to Cargilfield.  Tom left in 2009 and went on to Merchiston before heading down to Northamptonshire CC to become a professional cricketer; he is also a current Scotland player and was in Edinburgh to play against Sri Lanka at the Grange in a two match series.  Tom spoke to the boys and girls, offered a few tips and was impressed to see the high standard on show and that girls are now taking a full part in our cricket programme.  Thank you for popping in to see us!

We are fortunate to have three piping teachers at a Cargilfield to cater for all the children who want to play the Pipes and Drums and get in to one of our two Pipe Bands. The Summer Term is a busy one with lots of performances culminating in the Summer Fair and after the Leavers’ Chapel service on the last day of term. They are sounding very good!

On a beautiful sunny afternoon the third 11 travelled to Fettesin the hope of continuing their unbeaten run. Having lost the toss Cargilfiled were asked to bat. Openers Ed Macquaker and Leo Pike put on 29 for the first wicket but struggled to dominate the Fettes opening bowlers. Josh McLeod and Mungo Forbes-Cable came together shortly afterwards and formed a great partnership, both hitting the boundary on 4 occasions, before Mungo was run out for 17 and Josh caught and bowled for 24. Adley Ebeh added a further 14 runs to the total before being dismissed by opposition bowler Sandy, who then took wickets with his next two balls to claim a fine hatrick. Katie Henderson made her debut for the team at number 11 and batted resolutely alongside Rowan Findlay to bring the innings to a close with Cargilfield having scored 150 for 9.

With a total of 150 to defend Katie Henderson and Rosanna Walker opened the bowling. Both conceded only two runs from their two overs with Rosanna claiming two fine wickets with her first six deliveries. Both Mungo Forbes-Cable and Joshua McLeod took one wicket and a splendid catch each. Other wickets were taken by Edward Macquaker,2, and Jaime Ramos Montero. Edward CS gave another confident performance as wicket keeper. In the end due to some excellent performances in the field Cargilfield proved to be too strong for Fettes and ran out comfortable winners by 43 runs.

1stXI beat Fettes

The first real day of summer, and what a glorious afternoon we spent playing on the Fettes 1st team square, the best surface we will play on all season. It looked an absolute belter of a track and with a lightening fast outfield, we should have ‘filled our boots’ when we chose to bat first against a pretty average Fettes side if truth be told. We scored 101, all out in the 21st over with over 24 balls left which is unforgivable really. We started off too slowly, not taking the quick singles to get the scoreboard moving, playing too cautiously against very unthreatening bowling; add in a couple of rash shots, and it was left to Harry D and William to play properly and show how easy run scoring was. A pretty disappointing effort if truth be told, and we need to focus a lot more when the bowling is not as strong rather than mentally relaxing which is what I felt we did today.

However, our bowling attack, backed up with some excellent catching and ground fielding, strangled the Fettes batsmen who found it almost impossible to score any runs. Vinjero bowled a very hostile opening spell of 5 overs, taking three wickets including an excellent catch from Todd behind the stumps, and that was that really. Harry D took 4 wickets in a terrific spell by bowling very straight, as he always does, and after an outstanding piece of fielding from Edward with a direct hit to the strikers end from mid off, it was left to the skipper bowling leg spin who took the final wicket with another fine catch by Todd standing up, off a thin edge. All out for 50.

So not the complete performance by an means, but all the hard work in the winter and this term by the bowlers is paying dividends; opposition batsmen find it difficult to score runs, and when this happens, they begin to play rash shots and wickets tumble. Now we just need the batters to knuckle down a bit more, and they have the ideal opportunity on Saturday when we welcome Belhaven for what is sure to be a very good contest!

Well played, in parts!

Won by 56 runs

On a glorious sunny afternoon at Cargilfield, we welcomed our friends form Fettes. We won the toss and elected to bat first. A strong opening partnership between Rory and Harry saw us to a healthy 50 partnership. We then had a middle order collapse and lost 6 wickets in quick succession. Showing real strength in depth, Ollie and James StC steadied the ship and actually blocked the accurate bowls. They added a further 50 runs between them and we saw out our overs on 138 runs.

Fettes batted well but were unfortunate to lose some key wickets early on. Our bowling was accurate and consistent, restricting the Fettes boys’ ability to score runs. Ollie impressed with a double wicket maiden.

Well done, boys!

Under Nines Triangular Tournament against Belhaven and Loretto

What fabulous weather for rounders! The Under nines settled down on the Headmaster’s lawn to watch our visitors play the first match. It turned out to be a close affair with Belhaven batting better and securing 10 rounders to Loretto’s 7 ½. Cargilfield then went in to bat against Belhaven, having lost the toss. Initially we were rather timid not making regular contact with the ball but then Athena came into the batting square and she scored a great rounder. Lucy and Tunrayo followed her good example in the second round and then Savannah, Lucy and Maddie also scored as our ten minute innings came to a close. Our half rounders added to our full rounders giving us a score of 11 ½.We had watched the previous game carefully and had worked out who the best hitters were and I am delighted to say that we got five of them out. Lucy and Izzy worked very well getting out players at first post. Amalia was not as sharp on second but still managed to get people out and Esme and Natasha took two great catches. Maddie and Athena worked well out deep and Lucy chased down some balls also. All in all it was a good team effort and a good win. 

Cargilfield 11½ Belhaven 6½.

rightColBody

We won the toss against Loretto and again started to get players out at first post. Savannah rushed across to get a player out at second and Tunrayo did likewise. Our fielding was tight and we put pressure on the runners. I was delighted that we managed to get the whole team out before their ten minutes innings was complete. This was quite an achievement in our first competitive fixture of the season. In fact the team thought they had won! Careful as we needed to bat and beat their batting score! It turned out to be a close game as we struggled to hit the balls bowled by Jessica the Loretto captain. She bowled very well and then worked fast and accurately with the back stop to hold us at second. Thankfully we started to score after a shaky start and Esme, Lucy and Izzy scored. With half rounders we managed a total of six rounders, a narrow victory. 

Cargilfield 6 Loretto 4 ½.

Well done on your first win girls! Lessons to be learned include keeping your eye on the ball to help your chance of hitting it! We will be practising this!

Loss 17 ½ to 7 1/2

On a beautiful sunny day at Loretto the girls battled well against a very strong Loretto side. Some strong performances in the first innings as we batted first with both Heidi and Annika scoring full rounders from great hitting. The girls fielded well in the first innings but the batting from 3 Loretto players in particular was strong and they managed to score 4 full rounders and a few half rounders. In the second innings the girls again fought well in the increasing heat with Cara and Freya scoring full rounders. Defending well in the field once again, the girls battled on but the Loretto batting attack still proved to be a little too strong for us as the same players once again were able to hit the ball long distances.

All in all, a super afternoon of play in wonderful weather and surroundings. Well done to all the girls for trying hard and being excellent representatives of the school.

Lost 7 – 13.5

The girls had a lovely time in the field today playing against Belhaven. They started fielding but did not manage to stop their opponents a lot during the first innings. They did much better in the second innings as they managed to get several girls out. Matilda did particularly well at the second post, catching many balls and running to her post to get players out.

As batters, the girls did better in their first inning and scored 4 points. Lara was the only one scoring a full rounder! Unfortunately, this was not enough to win and next time the girls must remember to not get distracted, especially when batting.

The girls played well overall and had a good team spirit when playing.

Won by 114 runs.

On a splendid afternoon at Fettes, the boys were rather intrigued to see that we were playing on the astro with a hardball. They found out that the astro pitch the ball up and took some of the pace off. Having understood this, they used it to the advantage and were able to pick their shots well while batting and managed to hit quite a few boundaries, giving us a healthy sscore of 165 runs. As the boys had batted first, they knew how the ball would pitch up and adjusted their bowling accordingly. I was pleased with their bowling and how many wickets they picked up from hitting the stumps and the many catches. Fielding was excellent and there was a lot of encouragement towards each other.

Well done, boys!

Well done to Ellie, Amelia, Sophie, Izzy and Emma L who all represented the Dandylion rounders teams this afternoon. Sophie and Amelia played in the A match and won convincingly by 25-9. Ellie, Izzy and Emma had a slightly harder match however pulled through in the second innings and won their match by 10 ½ - 6 ½. Thank you to Belhaven who hosted the matches beautifully; the sun shone and it was the perfect day for a game of rounders. Also a big well done and thank you to the chef at Belhaven who made a most fantastic cake to celebrate the event!

On a beautiful day at Fettes the 4th XI opened their season with a thrilling game, it was a baptism of fire with many playing their first cricket for the school. A solid opening partnership from Alex and Callum set the platform for Flora and Catherine to blast a 30 partnership with Flora hitting back to back fours to finish.

More good batting followed from the team and it was particularly pleasing to see Monty guide our German overseas superstars picking up some vital runs in the process setting Fettes 292 to win. Our bowling performance started superbly and was backed up with some outstanding fielding from Zac and Catherine who saved multiple boundaries to keep the side in the game. It meant the game went down to the final over where Fettes needed 9 to win. They scraped over the line by one run despite Callum hitting the stumps off the penultimate ball but the bails sadly didn’t fall.


A great first game of the season and it was great to see a game played in such a good spirit.

2nd Rounders v Belhaven

A fantastic afternoon for a game of rounders but unfortunately it was not to be our finest hour. Belhaven were strong from the start clocking up 4. 1/2 rounders from the first 10 balls. Our fielding was also not as good as it has been in training sessions and we fumbled a bit around second base. We also need to work a little more on our long barriers especially in the deep field. Despite some valiant hitting by Saphira and Hannah we failed to make much of an impact on Belhaven and they ended the first innings 6 rounders ahead.

In the second innings we were a little all over the place with our fielding. We also lost 3 half rounders for obstruction. Our batting improved with Alannah scoring a rounder and Lucie and Laura with a string or rounders and half rounders. However, Belhaven pulled out all the stops and were simply the better team today.

Final Score Cargilfield 14, Belhaven 29.

3rd Rounders v Belhaven

It was a great day to be out in the sun playing rounders against Belhaven. The thirds started off the game fielding, causing a total of 3 of Belhaven’s players to be stumped and caught out in the early stages of the first inning. This allowed the girls to create an achievable score of 6 rounders they could catch in their first batting round. After the first inning, we began playing together as a team and communicating more, increasing the accuracy and improving the delivery of balls. Special mention goes to Rose and Amy who both showed great teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the game. Well done to all the girls on an encouraging game. An unfortunate loss but a great day for it.

Final score: 8.5-13.5 (loss)

Gardening Club - Mrs Millar has worked really hard with some of the children to create some wonderful floral 'welly boots' to brighten up the nursery garden. The children have done a fantastic job of creating a really colourful display of flowers. Well done to Mrs Millar and her keen bunch of gardeners for all their hard work!

2nd XI v Fettes

On a glorious day we had a very exciting game of cricket which came down to the last over.  Our total of 109 seemed like it might be plenty after Fettes only scored 38 after 10 overs but with some courageous batting and running between the wickets, they made it to 102 at the end, just coming up short.  

Finn and Ned opened the batting with some assured shots but fell to some straight deliveries which they tried to slog.  Ramsay and Tom put on a good partnership of 25 and Ramsay was unlucky that the ball took a wicked deflection off his bat onto the stumps.  Tom batted extremely sensibly and although he made just 16 in 45 balls, the shots he played were tremendous and he supported his batting partners at the other end very well.  

Our winning total was reached thanks to a great partnership of Ollie and Alexander who played some competent shots and ran between the wickets well. Top fielding moments came from Ned taking a great catch at backward square leg and Tom also took a difficult catch at mid-on looking into the lowering sun.   Maclean was the pick of the bowlers taking 2 wickets for 12 runs in his 3 overs.  


Man of the match was Tom for his batting and superb catch.


In general, our fielding was a little lazy at times and you could hear the panic in the field as Fettes crept ever closer to their target.  We need to sharpen up for the weekend when we welcome Belhaven on Saturday but if our batting is assured and sensible as it was today, it should be a great game. Well played boys!

Cargilfield started the first innings as fielders and straight away had good communication and accurate passing to prevent the other team scoring. They then continued to improve with the help of some excellent bowling by Poppy and managed to get all of Bellhaven out before the 30 balls were played. With our turn to bat the girls hit some excellent shots and made good judgements on when to run on. We were 8-2 up in the first innings. The girls continued to play well in the second innings and once again got all of the opposing team out before the second innings. Overall we won 14.5-6.5. A special mention goes to Georgia as Captain and Issy who was Player of the Match.

The Under 11C Cricket team faced Fettes in a pairs Kwik cricket match on Wednesday, every player receiving two overs to bowl, two overs keeping the wicket and each pair sharing four overs of batting.

Fettes were put in to bat first and the Cargilfield boys worked hard to restrict their scoring with some energetic fielding and reasonably accurate bowling. William and Oscar were the pick of the bowlers on the day, both having consistent deliveries throughout their respective spells. Fettes posted a total of 106 at the end of their innings.

After tea, the Cargilfield boys set out to chase down the target - each pair requiring an average of just over twenty to reach the target. The first three pairs all scored over twenty, with Hayden and Thomas scoring a commendable total of 41 between them. In the final pairing, William and Angus remained composed to seal the victory by 27 runs.

It was a competitive match in which all of the boys made important contributions.

Today was finally P2's turn to take a trip to The Yard in order to visit the facilities of our chosen charity for this year. There really was something for everyone and we loved the encouraging atmosphere created by the staff who were most enthusiastic for us to just be ourselves in a space where we felt comfortable.

This little piece of haven in the busy city life certainly allowed us to see for ourselves what an amazing facility The Yard is for disabled children and their families and we are happy to be supporting such a centre for adventure and fun this year!

On Tuesday afternoon we had our annual school photograph and we were lucky to be blessed with glorious blue skies and warm sunshine! All 326 children got on and off the staff safely and smiled too!

U13’s Runners up at the Glenalmond 6s

On what was a glorious summer’s day up in Perthshire, the U13s managed to reach the Final of the annual 6-a-side tournament and although ultimately there was disappointment as we lost to Belhaven on the very last ball of the match, it was a very positive day and I was delighted with the way in which every member of the side stood up to be counted and showed a great deal of cricketing nous both with the bat and the ball.

We comfortably beat Kinross CC and St Mary’s Melrose, scoring over 65 in both matches in just 5 overs, but we knew the real test would come in the Final against our old friends and rivals, Belhaven. The 1stXV, perhaps surprisingly, beat them at rugby by 50 points back in October, which showed the quality and potential of that side, but then narrowly lost out in the final of the Strathallan Hockey 6s and also in a play off game down at the IAPS Hockey Finals at Millfield…..a fierce rivalry against two good teams had another chapter to be written today!

Batting first, we scored 51-0 in our 5 overs, with Harry A and Harry D batting superbly against a fine bowling attack; they punished anything just off line and ran well between the wickets too.  A very confident display indeed, and we just batted sensibly, taking no risks. With so many wickets in hand, could we have gone a bit harder at the bowling and taken a few more risks? A little churlish perhaps, as scoring over 10 an over, despite the small boundaries, was certainly a stiff target given the strength of our bowling.

rightColBody

Unfortunately, their go to player took Harry’s leg spin on in the opening over and after conceding 17 runs off the first 6 balls, we were now up against it; however, we bowled well and after an excellent penultimate over from Edward, it left Belhaven needing to score 7 runs off the final over bowled by VJ. Dot, Dot, Dot…now 7 off 3…..then a single, so 6 off 2, definitely in with a chance. Then the ball sailed over the boundary for a 6 and the game was lost.  Well played to the Belhaven boys on a excellent run chase, under pressure, and they were deserved winners.

Understandably, the boys were disappointed to ultimately come up short, but I was delighted with the resilience and positive cricket we displayed; we never gave up, we kept fighting and put ourselves back in the game when we could have crumbled and heads could have gone down. It says a lot about this group of cricketers, and we have a chance to bounce back immediately with a game against Fettes on Wednesday, before we welcome Belhaven on Saturday afternoon for what is sure to be a rather tasty encounter!

A terrific day of cricket once again.

The P3s were dropped off at Cargilfield for a fun packed weekend that is the annual P3 Camp. After saying goodbye to mums and dads, they were given a demonstration by Mrs Parker on how to build their tents before everyone got stuck in threading poles and hammering pegs. After lunch, we packed into minibuses for a quick trip to Tescos to buy a very important supply: sweeties!

Next on the agenda was an hour long jump session at Ryze. Children bounced on trampolines, swung on trapezes and tumbled into foam pits. Even the teachers and the gaps had a go falling onto air bags and swinging their way in a ninja obstacle course. 

All this jumping around got everyone quite hungry. This called for burgers and hot dogs in the sunshine by the cowsheds. Everyone particularly enjoyed the choc-ices for dessert. However, camping wouldn’t be camping without a chance to toast some marshmallows. After collecting firewood, everyone gathered around the treehouse for marshmallows and hot chocolate, provided by Mrs Taylor. We all reflected on what we enjoyed about the day before heading off to brush our teeth and get into our pyjamas (with a few jumpers and woolly socks added in!). 

rightColBody

Next morning, everyone got up for a lovely cooked breakfast. Next the children made their own packed lunches and packed up all their things. It was time for orienteering. They were paired up and ran around Cargilfield looking for stamps outside Wilsons, chapel and the games room. The winners with the most stamps got a kitkat – a worthy prize!

Finally, everyone headed down to the beach for a picnic and a paddle. Sandcastles were made and legs were buried in sand. This was all topped off with a healthy dose of ice cream in the sunshine.

Everyone were returned to mums and dads covered in sand and sunscreen. A super weekend had by all!

P1F made the most of the sunshine today as we headed outside as part of our 'We Are Artists' topic. We tried hard to look closely at the different flowers and plants as we attempted to add as much detail to our sketches as possible. We couldn't believe how different all the types of plants and flowers were.

I often get asked what it’s like being a pre-prep teacher, spending your days ‘colouring in’, ‘singing songs’ or ‘getting out toys for lessons’. And I often take people aback with the perfectly truthful answer of ‘it is all just great fun actually!’

Now you may be wondering why we take primary education so seriously if this is all we achieve in P2 from a Monday to a Friday but actually it goes much deeper than a superficial front of fun and games, underpinning what is quite possibly at the very heart of all education. Developing and fostering a love of learning right from the very beginning.

That love of learning is exactly what the P2’s would be bursting to tell you all about from last term. Take the time we have got our hands, face and smiles covered in paint discovering the fun the North and South of a magnet can have (not so much ‘love’ from the cleaner we admit!). Or how about when we turned our classroom into a ‘real’ space ship, witnessing a live conversation from astronauts aboard the ISS and undertaking a series of astronaut tasks, learning that team working is an essential (but not always easy!) part of any job. The space journals we wrote leading on from this certainly produced some impressively detailed and opinionated pieces of writing.

They’ll also be more than keen to show you the planet orbit dance we learnt, which whilst making us all dizzy, showed us how the Moon and Earth orbit the Sun making days, months and years! Or ask them to fill you in about the time a herbivore made lodge in our classroom at night causing daily classroom chaos! The descriptive story writing produced from this adventure certainly echoed the excitement and enthusiasm the children had from their imaginations. Taking our ‘fun and games’ outside has also let us explore the real length in meters and centimeters of some of the world’s largest dinosaurs. Even at arm’s length, standing in a line we weren’t as big as an Argentinosaurus! How did this creature even fit between trees was one of the questions raised! The fun and enjoyment found in all these activities has allowed the children to explore, question and wonder. Possibly the three key ingredients for really developing a love of learning no matter what the age.

rightColBody

I thought I’d asked P2 what they ‘loved about their learning at school so far this year’ and these were some of their replies…

‘All the story writing we do because we always have the most fun before it’

‘When the spaceship landed in the classroom and we got to see what being a real astronaut is like… it wasn’t easy!’

‘When the dinosaur came into our classroom and we set up a camera to catch him!’ shortly followed by ‘oh I know, when I wrote about the dinosaur knocking over Mr Taylor’s picture of Mrs Taylor in his office!’

Story writing certainly featured high on their love list and it was clearly through the exploration, excitement and more simply ‘fun’ they had in the build up to these pieces of work.

So whilst it may be all ‘fun and games’ down in a primary classroom there is no doubt that laying down the foundations for a love of learning is definitely the successful route for developing enquiring and inquisitive individuals. We certainly have a year group full of just those sorts of individuals! Every game played to help our maths, song sang to remember our spellings or toy used to engage our brains is the very foundations for keeping that love for learning going right through to our old age. Now I wonder where our love for learning will take us this term!?

Our group of actors headed down to Eagle House School in Berkshire for their first rehearsals for this year’s Edinburgh Fringe collaboration of ‘Lord of the Flies’ which will be performed at SpaceUk in August. All the children enjoyed getting to know their roles and work alongside the other actors. There will be another week of rehearsals later in the Summer before the cast arrive in Edinburgh ready to perform to what we hope will be packed houses!

A big thank you to Glenalmond College for hosting a wonderful day’s cricket today under glorious blue skies and warm sunshine. As always, the annual six a side tournament saw lots of boys and girls positively engaged in this great summer sport!

We saw some splendid cricket and the day was capped off with our Under 11 team winning the Final after playing superbly well and dominating the competition. A terrific achievement!
The U13s played some excellent cricket too, also reaching what was a very tense and exciting Final which went down to the final ball, with Belhaven needing two runs from the final delivery.....they held their nerve to win so we were runners up but what a great way to end what was a brilliant day of junior cricket!

Numeracy - Numeracy activities have also been linked to the traditional tales we have been learning about. The children have been measuring beanstalks and counting/recognising and identifying number on beans and leaves. Responsive activities have included using tape measures to count up to 100 and beyond, recording tally marks on clipboards in the garden, making our own pictograms and measuring water in different containers in the water area outside.

1stXI beat Loretto by 12 runs

Cargilfield 107-5 (20 overs)

Loretto 95-5

Despite the narrow win, in truth, the result was never in doubt and with 23 runs required from the final over, Harry D was able to relax knowing that the result was a forgone conclusion. That said, Loretto played some good cricket with the ball and with the bat, and it was good to be in a more competitive environment for the boys and we will have learned a lot today which should stand us in good stead for the rest of the season.

Did I mention the weather?! Ah, no…..well, today's match was played in possibly the coldest and wettest conditions that I have umpired in. We started in very light drizzle at 2pm, but the rain got progressively heavier as we went on, making it difficult to score runs and get a grip on the ball. Some of the boys had turned blue, and the umpires required a complete change of clothes afterwards! One of those days you look back on and say “Did we really play in that?”

Given the weather, we decided to just play a 20 over game - a wise move!  We batted first, and losing Harry in the 2nd over run out was not the ideal start; Freddie soon followed in the same fashion, the result of not being committed to the single, so we were 17-2 in the 6th over and struggling a little in the face of some steady accurate Loretto bowling. Todd came in to join Jack A and together they put on 46 runs in 7 overs which steadied the ship somewhat; they ran very well between the wickets and Jack in particular was quick to punish anything wide outside the off or leg stumps. He still needs to work hard on playing the ball straighter and keeping his back foot still rather than playing inside out which exposes his stumps, but he batted very sensibly today and when he was out in the 15th over for a well made 33, we had 78 on the board with 5 overs remaining.

rightColBody

This brought Max and Jack S to the crease and they scored an excellent 29 runs between them, and both batted very sensibly taking quick singles, frustrating the bowlers and nudging us up to 107 off our allocated overs.  A good effort in the conditions and considering we had 3 run outs in the top order!

By now, the rain really was beginning to hammer down, so we did not take tea but just carried on. Bowling and fielding was not going to be easy, but I really was impressed by the way that Todd encouraged the side constantly from behind the stumps, keeping everyone focused, on their toes and trying hard to ignore the inclement weather. Very quickly we had Loretto 15-3 in the 6th over and it looked for a moment as though the game would be over very quickly; both Harry D and Vinjero bowled tight spells, were difficult to score off and were assisted by some remarkable fielding, including a wonder catch from Max at short third man, diving full stretch and somehow managing to hold on! Amazing. Then, as the rain kept falling and fingers got cold (and I do not just mean the umpires!), Loretto began to rebuild and an excellent 4th wicket partnership of 40 in 6 overs began to edge them closer and closer to their target, and then a partnership of 21 for the 5th wicket took them even closer……however, having rotated the bowling a little, it was time for Edward and William to come on and bowl and both did so quite superbly. They both bowled their 4 overs very economically and accurately, tied up the Loretto batsmen who suddenly found it almost impossible to score a run. Their best player was superbly caught at cover by Harry A – quite how he managed to hold on with such cold hands I am not sure – and then that was that.

Hats off, boys.. To get through that, to keep going, to keep our fielding standards so high in the atrocious conditions took some doing. The ball was a bar of soap and the pitch a quagmire…..but we still got a game of cricket in and came away with a well deserved win in a game where we could have subsided had we not shown the mental toughness which this group of players definitely have in abundance. Well done indeed, and hopefully we have all dried out by now…..!!!

t was a cold wet day out in Musselburgh but the boys were still keen to play. We won the toss and chose to bowl, which is definitely an area we need to work on. Even though the conditions where difficult a few of our bowlers proved they could still produce some good overs. With a couple of run outs and a few mistakes from the batmen we kept the total down.

Coming out to bat we had one goal in mind; to not take any silly runs which resulted in run outs. It was great to see the boys achieve this target. It was good that our boys capitalised on the bad ball when it came and we reached target with only a few wickets down.

Well done on another good win.

t was a cold wet day out in Musselburgh but the boys were still keen to play. We won the toss and chose to bowl, which is definitely an area we need to work on. Even though the conditions where difficult a few of our bowlers proved they could still produce some good overs. With a couple of run outs and a few mistakes from the batmen we kept the total down.

Coming out to bat we had one goal in mind; to not take any silly runs which resulted in run outs. It was great to see the boys achieve this target. It was good that our boys capitalised on the bad ball when it came and we reached target with only a few wickets down.

Well done on another good win.

The Under-10 boys played Loretto in Musselburgh on Wednesday, facing off in a soft ball, pairs match. The boys lost the toss and were put in to bat, a move which seemed to work in their favour as the weather deteriorated as the afternoon wore on.   All of the boys gave it their best shot, with all pairs in credit at the end of their respective allocation of overs. The communication between partners was effective and no run-outs were conceded. With a couple of short boundaries, fours abounded aplenty and the team accumulated a total of 145 at the end of their innings.

After a brief tea break Cargilfield set out to defend their score and, by taking regular wickets, either run-outs or bowled, they managed to keep Loretto’s total down, eventually sealing the win by a comfortable margin.

Well done for all the boys who gave their best, despite the inclement weather!

It was cold, wet and windy but that didn’t dampen the spirits of both sets of players as we played a very competitive game of cricket at Cargilfield today.  We won the toss and our captain, Will, elected to field first as he predicted the weather would get worse and didn’t want his fielders standing in the cold having had to hang around when batting.  How right he was: William took 4 wickets himself with the 4th coming from a terrific catch taken by Joshua M at short fine leg.  However, the match ball went to Joshua for his hat-trick which began with dismissing their very impressive captain on 30.  There was also impressive bowling from Alexander who finished with an economy of 1.88 and Joshua M who made his debut for the 2nds today taking 1 wicket for 15 runs in 3 overs.  We bowled out Loretto for 88 but many of them played some wonderful shots which was most encouraging at this age. 

It was a quick turnaround and tea was saved till the end of the match so we could try to beat the worst of the weather.  Unfortunately, it set in for the afternoon but an impressive 40 not out (retired) from Ramsay and a quick fired 19 from 21 balls from Leo saw us reach their total with just over 4 overs to spare.

Tom came in to make his batting debut for the 2nds and scored two boundaries of which his second was a nicely played shot down to the fine leg boundary to win the game.

All in all, credit must go to every player out there who braved the elements and kept their spirits up. It was a pleasure to host Loretto at Cargilfield; they were polite and encouraged one another and it was great to see 3 girls representing their team at such a high standard. The fielding throughout the team was excellent as they dived about on the wet grass and the keeper was a live wire behind the stumps, stopping everything. The Cargilfield team continue to impress with their understanding of cricket and skill. The team has rotated a lot and it has been great to see players step up and continue to produce high standards. Well done, boys!

It was a pleasure to welcome Rachel Trafford, Assistant Head at Uppingham School, to preach in Chapel this morning.

She talked to us about realising when you feel you have ‘grown up’ and what sort of person you would like to be when you are older rather than what job you want to have. She told us how important it is to try new things, to be patient, to have the courage to change your mind and eventually you will discover who you are and who you want to be.

For the first time we entered a team in the Farr Out Challenge hosted by St Mary’s School, Melrose on Saturday.

On what was a lovely sunny day down in the boarders, our Year 5 team took part in a series of team building challenges along with a large number of local primary schools, and they had a really enjoyable day; it was a lot of fun and they worked so well together throughout all the different challenges. Well done!

A tremendous day of 1stXI cricket today at the annual 15/15 triangular festival between Sedbergh, Merchiston Castle School, Edinburgh and Cargilfield, which this year was held at Casterton, Sedbergh Preparatory School down in Cumbria.

This is the fifth year since its inception and as always, there was some fantastic cricket between three very even teams. We narrowly lost to Sedbergh with just two balls left in the game, but beat Merchiston after once again playing some excellent cricket.

A day of real learning, as ever, and good to see the progress and development in amongst this group of boys as cricketers, as well seeing two U11 players stepping up today. Our thanks to Sedbergh for their warm hospitality and to all those parents who made it down to support!

P1 had a fantastic day at the beach today. We had a lovely walk down along the river and we loved spotting different animals and watching people salmon fishing. We stopped to play on the park and practised our climbing skills. When we arrived at the beach, we had a lovely picnic in the sunshine before rolling up our jogging bottoms and heading for a paddle. We found shells, built sandcastles and played in the sand. We worked up an appetite so we went to the ice cream shop where we paid for our own ice-cream. Yummy!

It was the first game of the season and we had nearly every under 9 boy playing. They were all very excited, especially the ones who were playing their first ever cricket game.

St Mary’s won the toss and chose to bowl. We had a bit of a slow start, not scoring many runs but we only lost one wicket which kept our score relatively high. We tried to increase the run rate but the St Marys bowlers seemed to always come back and bowl a very good line and length. Then our last pair of Tom B and Xander H came into bat and batted extremely well hitting a couple of boundaries and running brilliantly between the wickets, which put us in a good position .

We came out looking to strike early on with our bowling and we did, Adan W taking a great catch at long on. The St Mary’s batsman really took it to our bowlers and they were on target to beat our score but once again Tom B and Xander H bowled brilliantly and took a few wickets which put us in the driving seat. Well done on a great performance and a good win.

1stXI beat St Mary’s, Melrose by 110 runs

Cargilfield    158-9

St Mary’s    48 all out


This was another excellent team performance this afternoon and shows what a tight knit group of boys this team has become. Saturday’s one sided win over Merchiston was valuable in many respects in that the whole team got to bat, we did not rely on any stars to score all the runs and the importance of everyone contributing was there for all to see. Putting those foundations in to the team so early on in the season was important and the confidence of the players is beginning to flow which allows them to express themselves and believe in their abilities and to know their role within the team.

We batted first today and after losing Max early on, Harry and Todd put on over 50 runs batting very sensibly indeed; they ran really well between the wickets and were quick to latch on anything short or wide. It was an excellent partnership as the bowling was pretty accurate and the slow pitch made forcing shots in front of the wicket difficult, and this is what proved their undoing when one shot low and bowled Harry and another popped and Todd was caught tamely at cover.

It is hard work building an innings, playing each ball on its merit and these two showed what batting is all about, showing patience, skill and great maturity – well done, boys. We continued scoring at a healthy rate, with Jack S, Freddie and Seb (on debut) scoring useful middle order runs, and it was left to Will to get us over 150 by the end of our 25 overs with some terrific blows at the end. A very encouraging display overall, playing on a difficult wicket but everyone looked to dig in and play properly which was pleasing to see. As the wickets get drier and faster later in the season, batting will get easier, but we performed impressively as a unit today especially as St Mary’s bowled pretty tidily overall.

rightColBody

Our opening bowlers of Vinjero and Harry ripped the Merchiston batting order apart on Saturday, but the beauty of team sport is that others stand up to be counted and although VJ took the first wicket after an outstanding one handed catch by Harry D in the covers, the rest of the wickets were taken by the change bowlers – another sign of the strength in depth of the team which is so important as we look to develop players’ skills and get them performing out in the middle which is so very different to bowling in the nets!

Max took a fantastic hatrick which capped an excellent spell of 3 overs, and Will also took three wickets including an outstanding caught and bowled; add in a couple of excellent run outs and some really tight fielding which made run scoring almost impossible for our visitors, then it really was a very impressive display all round in the field. We bowled them out in the 19th over for 48 which meant a convincing and well deserved win.

A top performance this afternoon and I sense a real momentum building within the group. We have Loretto at home next Wednesday, but before that there is the 15/15 festival down at Sedbergh on Sunday which will allow us to get everyone involved and get lots of cricket in so early on in the term which will be great. I enjoyed this afternoon though – some very good cricket played indeed.

We continued scoring at a healthy rate, with Jack S, Freddie and Seb (on debut) scoring useful middle order runs, and it was left to Will to get us over 150 by the end of our 25 overs with some terrific blows at the end. A very encouraging display overall, playing on a difficult wicket but everyone looked to dig in and play properly which was pleasing to see. As the wickets get drier and faster later in the season, batting will get easier, but we performed impressively as a unit today especially as St Mary’s bowled pretty tidily overall.

Our opening bowlers of Vinjero and Harry ripped the Merchiston batting order apart on Saturday, but the beauty of team sport is that others stand up to be counted and although VJ took the first wicket after an outstanding one handed catch by Harry D in the covers, the rest of the wickets were taken by the change bowlers – another sign of the strength in depth of the team which is so important as we look to develop players’ skills and get them performing out in the middle which is so very different to bowling in the nets!

Max took a fantastic hatrick which capped an excellent spell of 3 overs, and Will also took three wickets including an outstanding caught and bowled; add in a couple of excellent run outs and some really tight fielding which made run scoring almost impossible for our visitors, then it really was a very impressive display all round in the field. We bowled them out in the 19th over for 48 which meant a convincing and well deserved win.

A top performance this afternoon and I sense a real momentum building within the group. We have Loretto at home next Wednesday, but before that there is the 15/15 festival down at Sedbergh on Sunday which will allow us to get everyone involved and get lots of cricket in so early on in the term which will be great. I enjoyed this afternoon though – some very good cricket played indeed.

Won by 95 runs

The boys played an unexperienced Melrose side this afternoon. We batted first and put up a healthy total. I was pleased with the communication between the Cargilfield batsmen and their running between the wickets. The next step is to start thinking about placing our shots to maximise our run rate. In the second inning, I was delighted with the boys’ bowling. The majority of the team picked up at least one wicket and we even had two wicket maidens, which was fantastic. Also our fielding was excellent, which minimised the runs scored by the opposition.

Well done, boys!

The under nines welcomed eight Fettes girls to a mixed Rounders session. We allowed the Fettes girls to pick their fielding positions but changed after the first innings thus allowing most girls to play their favourite position. The teams were well matched with only 2 ½ rounders separating the final score. Our top scores were Athena, Izzy, Lucy and Maddie but it was a good training session for all. We then enjoyed a match tea but we may picnic on the headmaster’s lawn next time! There is a lot more space here. One of our main lessons learnt was to concentrate as both schools had lots of excitable girls! We look forward to a competitive match later in the term.

Loss 20 to 10

A good team effort in our second match of the season against Fettes. Batting first, the girls came up against some very strong bowling and fielding from the Fettes team. They scored 2 rounders, these were 4 half rounders from players getting to 2nd base. The girls fielding very well in the Fettes first innings and managed to get 3 of the players out, one great catch from Freya. The Fettes batters were strong and scored 10 rounders. Cargilfield put in a strong batting performance in the second innings with 3 full rounders and quite a lot of half rounders. A super rounder from Annika here. Fettes were very strong in batting in the second innings but our girls continued to field well and Arya and Heidi made a good backstop and bowling combination. Great fielding also from Cara and Lola but all in all, everyone tried very hard and it was a great game.

Win 8-9

Starting the afternoon with a good warm up led by their captain Lulu, the girls did well on the rounders pitch. They won the toss and started fielding. As we played 2 innings, the girls managed to rotate positions. Lulu started bowling first and then Iona. They did well and did not lose any points due to no balls. It was important as every half rounders counted for this match with such a close final score. Francesca and Anna were backstop and the other girls rotated the different positions at the posts and in the field. They were efficient in communicating together and passing the ball quickly as they managed to get 7 of the Fettes players out in total. When batting, Matilda did well as she took more risks to get her team two half rounders. Annabella is the only girl who managed a full rounder for this game. Francesca batted an impressive ball in the fields in the first innings but unfortunately she got out as the ball was caught.

The girls all played very well with a good team spirit and fair play. They can be proud of themselves.

Well done, girls!

We won the toss and elected to field first. We started very strongly stumping the first batter at 2nd and then catching the next two batters out. (Well done Flora and Hannah). Fettes then stepped up their game but did not score until ball 14 almost half way through the over with a super hit into the Deep. Perhaps we were a bit complacent after super start and we slipped a bit and allowed Fettes to reach an acceptable total of 5 ½. Saphira, our Captain, was up first to bat and immediately took a rounder with powerful hit into the Deep off third. This took Fettes a bit unawares. Hannah followed with a half as did Caitlin and Bethany. We ended the innings with a superb rounder from Hannah bringing us to a total of 6 and just ahead of Fettes.

In the 2nd innings we made a few mistakes with our fielding allowing Fettes to score several sneaky halves at 2nd base. We need to focus on limiting the opposition scoring here rather than stumping at third. However, our batting was brilliant and the strongest it has been so far this season. Saphira was awesome with 4 rounders bringing her individual total to 5 for the match. Hannah scored one and a half and as did Laura and Cailtin one.

It was an exciting game and a superb effort but our team.

Final score Cargilfield 14, Fettes 12

Despite the poor weather forecast, the girls were lucky up at Kilgraston and enjoyed a dry and at times, warm afternoon for the annual tournament.   All matches were 8 minute innings so time was very much of the essence.

Our first match was against Ardvreck and we played fairly well, but it was clear that we had more to give. Our batting was consistent with scores from Emma, Flora S, Ellie, Izzy, Amelia, Rosanna and Alannah pushing our total to 6. Our fielding was strong in this match and Sophie had 2 lovely catches on balls 2 and 9. Ellie looked sharp at 2 and put out one player, followed quickly by Amelia who put out another at 1.

Cargilfield 6 Ardvreck 2

Our next match was against Craigclowan and we batted first. Izzy was put out on ball 2 for over-running post 2 which was a little bit of a harsh decision but one which she won’t repeat again! We had some good batting and running from the girls; Sophie found her batting form and scored 2, and we had 1 ½ rounders from Emma and Flora, rounders from Ellie and Alannah and half rounders from Amelia, Katie and Rosanna. Rosanna bowled well in this match and it was great to see her play so consistently.

Cargilfield 8 ½ Craigclowan 3 ½

We faced Strathallan next who were looking sharp and ended up the eventual winners. Sophie was caught on ball 1 which was an unlucky way to start the match. Emma stepped in to bat and played particularly well in this game, steadying the ship and scoring well. We lost Amelia and Alannah quickly and Flora was caught on her second ball. This match saw some determined running from Emma, Ellie and Alannah which made for a close game. Izzy was our strongest player in this match, hitting well and running hard. Ellie also was a star running round the bases and moved with determination and speed. The Strath girls stepped in to bat and scored pretty consistently. We had some good stumping out from Ellie and Izzy, and Sophie made a catch behind but sadly the opposition’s batting was just a little too strong for us and we lost narrowly.

Cargilfield 6 ½ Strathallan 10

Our final match was against Loretto and it was lovely to see the girls relax and play some great rounders. We batted first and whole rounders soon started from the girls; confident batting was on show in this game and we soon started pushing our score in to double figures. Emma hit the ball well again and Ellie managed to sneak a whole rounder after a hit behind and some poor fielding from Loretto. Alannah ran well round the posts and it was great to see her play so confidently. Two rounders were scored by Sophie, Ellie, Izzy, Amelia and Alannah with Emma and Flora scoring 1 ½ each.

Cargilfileld 14 Loretto 3 ½

We finished second in the pool and with only the winners progressing to the final, we did not have any more matches, so we finished a fun afternoon with a BBQ match tea whilst watching the final of Strathallan v Belhaven. Well done to Strathallan for winning the tournament and thank you to Kilgraston for a really lovely day.

At the beginning of this year we elected our eco-committee in nursery. The children on the committee have joined in with the whole school in creating an action plan, to help us work on reaching our targets. We created both an eco-school committee and a litter committee as part of this. We've met with Mr Taylor to see if we could get a budget to help get started, which he agreed. As a result, the nursery children have been very pro-active in the school grounds and the wider community in litter picking and raising awareness of litter in our local environment. 

As part of our beach kindergarten on Fridays we have taken the litter pickers to Cramond foreshore to collect litter and discuss the impact of litter on our environment. We have also been busy collecting recycled boxes to plant flowers and vegetables in so we can provide our own snacks, planting a butterfly garden and other herbs and flowers to attract wildlife and help provide food for them in the nursery garden. We are using our water butt to collect rain water that can be used for watering our plants and water play and all of our food waste is going in to our composter and we are using this to help fertilise our vegetable allotment.

Fairy Tales and Traditional Tales - We have started learning about ‘Storytelling’ this week.  We have been immersing ourselves in traditional tales including the magic porridge pot, the reluctant dragon, Little Red Riding Hood, the Enormous turnip and Jack and the beanstalk.  We are following the pedagogy of Pi Corbett’s storytelling if you are interested in the learning and teaching strategies being used over the coming weeks.

Strings Workshop with Eric de Wit from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra

On Monday 29th April some of our more advanced string players had a wonderful opportunity to take part in an afternoon workshop with cellist Eric de Wit, a member of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. We are very grateful to the Macquaker family who made this possible through their sponsorship of the SCO.

Eric gave cello master classes to Joshua and Fergus each of whom presented a solo piece they are working on. He encouraged them to think about the details of the line and bow use, giving the music character and direction and it was great to hear how they were able to respond. He also worked with the Cello Group on their piece, ‘Dark Island’, bringing out the importance of all the accompanying parts.  

However, the majority of the afternoon was spent with a String Orchestra including children from F4-F8 looking at 4 movements from the Capriol Suite by Peter Warlock. We played this in chamber music style, with Eric directing as he played, and I know he was enormously impressed by how engaged and responsive the children were, listening to each other and quickly picking up the details of the music. 

Our afternoon finished with a concert to children in F4 and F5 and to parents showing all the music we worked on. What a lovely celebration of string playing!  Our thanks to the Jasmine Macquaker Charitable Fund and to Mr de Wit for a very inspiring afternoon.
