1stVII win the Loretto Sevens!           

The Loretto 7s is always one of the highlights of the Autumn Term and after working hard in training over the past few weeks, the squad was looking forward to testing themselves against a number of the other prep schools and some rugby clubs.  Over the many years we have been going, we have played a very attractive game, moving the ball from side to side, keeping possession and waiting for the gaps to open up, and this group of boys have been quick to pick this up, and also run some fantastic lines to wrong foot the opposition’s drift defence.  Hopes were high, the weather was good and it promised to be a terrific afternoon of sport.

In the opening group game, we comfortably beat Melrose Rugby Club first up, moving the ball really well to score five tries and also dominating the breakdown with our specialist jacklers.  We played some really good sevens and it was a great start to the campaign.  Next up was Loretto which was a much more physical affair and we got drawn in somewhat, going that step too far rather than passing before the contact and keeping the ball alive. A narrow win, but pleasingly our defence was excellent and we defended with real discipline.  North Berwick were large and aggressive and we ended up losing to a conversion which was disappointing, even though we topped the group.  We tried to match their physicality which was not what the doctor ordered, when we should have kept the ball moving to stretch them across the field.  We scored some good tries however, and in the end, the narrow defeat did us the world of good as we realized where our strengths lay and played with so much pace and skill in the knock out games that were to follow.

In the semi final, we met Belhaven, and the boys produced a mightily fine performance against our old rivals.  We really did look after the ball superbly, getting it wide, supporting each other, pulling the defence this way and that and showing lots of patience for the holes to appear…..which they did.  A really good advert for seven a side rugby at this level, and so we were in the Final once again.

rightColBody

Finals in schoolboy sevens tournaments can often not reach the heights of previous games due to the all the players being tired and so concentration levels drop; however, this was not the case for the Cargilfield boys today as we faced up to a large and physical Mussleburgh RFC team.  Learning our lessons from earlier in the day, we really did keep the ball alive, moving it across the width of the pitch again and again, and despite some excellent tackling from the opposition, we kept possession, and when that happens, we score! We scored four tries, which put the game to bed, but the quality of the opposition meant we had to work really hard for them which is as it should be, but the boys were rightly delighted when the final whistle blew and the trophy was ours once again.

I do love sevens: it is the ultimate test of skill, patience, teamwork, communication and fitness. We played the best sevens today, but managed to combine the traditional Cargilfield way of playing with some added ‘go forward’ as we ran some great supporting lines which caused all the teams we played real problems.  As always, we learned a lot too, and I know this lot will be chomping at the bit for the Ardvreck Sevens which takes place right at the end of half term……we have set down a marker now.

A richly deserved win and it would be invidious to pick out any names, so I have not! It was a real squad effort, with everyone working so hard both with and without the ball, which made us so effective both in attack and in defence. A wonderful afternoon indeed!  A big thank you to the large number of parents who came along too; your support was invaluable at the end of a long and tiring day of sport!

The 1st girls had a great day at Loretto 7’s, winning the tournament in fine form, without losing a game all day. All matches were 12 minutes one way, so there was little time to settle and even less time for mistakes.

Our first match was against Belhaven. Captain Izzy dominated this game from start to finish and led her team well. Saphira started the scoring off after Izzy took the ball in to the circle from a long corner. Izzy hit the ball hard and Saphira tapped in the rebound. The play stayed in our attacking half and Izzy again piled on the pressure and this time her hard strike resulted in a well-deserved goal. Clara made her debut today for the 1sts and she slotted in to the team with little difficulty, working hard both in midfield and up front. Her tenacity on the pitch was rewarded by a goal which settled any nerves and pulled us ahead nicely. Flora and Izzy linked particularly well in this game and Flora kept the width and time after time got the ball past the Belhaven girls. Flora really was a class above the rest and played fantastically. Izzy scored in the last few minutes with a show-case reverse strike which hit the top of the net; pretty impressive!

Cargilfield 4 Belhaven 0

Our next match was against Cundall Manor from Yorkshire. This is usually a tough game and the girls did well throughout. We won a short corner early in the match and Emma was our main injector today. Her accuracy and power throughout the tournament was good, and she really didn’t put a foot wrong all day. Izzy opened the scoring with a rocket straight strike which saw spirits rise and the girls hungry for more goals. Clara really stepped up to the mark and played in a beautifully wide role, keeping the width and playing the ball strongly through. Saphira got on the end of one of Clara’s passes and slotted the ball cooly in to the back of the goal. Another short corner followed and a lovely strike from Laura was deflected in by Saphira for our 3rd goal. The Cundall girls took the centre but Izzy stole the ball, dribbled through, and hit a reverse strike in to the back of the net. Laura was a dominant member of our attack in this match and really worked her socks off throughout.

Cargilfield 4 Cundall 0

Our 3rd game was against Gullane Hockey Club who had a strong tournament last year. We looked a little sluggish at times in this match and lost our shape a bit. This made our defence have to work hard and Emma and Clemmie were put under pressure but both kept their cool and managed to keep the ball away from the goal. Our goal came from Saphira who got on the end of a hard reverse sweep from Laura. Flora hit the post and again, had a good match.

Cargilfield 1 Gullane 0

We played Loretto next and we made quite tough work of this game. The Loretto girls were strong on the ball and were clearly keen to press us hard. The play was end to end, and we were lucky that Rosanna was switched on as she kept us in the match. Saphira also played well and she kept lovely and wide, pulling the Loretto girls out and driving hard in to the circle. Caitlin’s goal keeping skills were really put to the test in this match and she made a series of great saves to keep the opposition out. Despite this, we lost a goal after a sloppy defensive short corner and knew we would have to dig deep for the win. Izzy was determined to pull the game back, and quickly got the ball up the pitch; a clever pass to Saphira saw us score and equalise. The girls weren’t happy with a draw and kept on working hard and we were rewarded by a short corner and a hard strike from Izzy which Emma popped in beside the post.

Cargilfield 2 Loretto 1

Our final pool match was against St Mary’s. Despite a very one-sided game against this team earlier in the week, we struggled to play well, and the game in general lacked shape and structure. Both teams made good and bad passes, and it ended a rather disappointing 0-0.

Cargilfield 0 St Mary’s 0

We finished the round robin in 1st place which saw us play Belhaven again, as they had finished in 4th place. Flora and Emma were our players of the match; both simply dug deep and did their job. They did not let the opposition fluster them and played good hockey. Izzy started the scoring off after less than 2 minutes; she dribbled in from a free hit, pulled the ball on to the reverse and struck it hard in to the back of the net. A couple of defensive short corners followed but Clemmie cleared the ball well and play ended up in the other half. We won a short corner and after a hard strike from Izzy, the ball got lost in the goal keepers’ feet but Emma was literally on the ball and got it out and popped the ball in the back of the net.

Cargilfield 2 Belhaven 0

The final was played against St. Mary’s who had just beaten Loretto in the other semi-final. We were keen to stay positive and not let our formation disintegrate like the last time! We won 2 short corners and Izzy had another one of her rocket strikes which was saved but quickly rebounded back in to the goal by Saphira. This was enough to settle us and strong positional play from Laura kept the game flowing. Rosanna ran hard and made some great tackles which turned the play round. Both teams were beginning to tire but Saphira won a short corner and it was a fitting way to end the match with Izzy scoring on her reverse to secure the win.

Cargilfield 2 St Mary’s 0

It is impossible to pick out too many individual players as it was very much a team effort but well done to Caitlin for only letting in 1 goal all tournament, and to Izzy, Emma, Flora and Saphira for their work rate.

A very well-deserved win and all the girls deserve a long hot bath tonight and can wear their medals with pride. Thank you to Lucy Lanigan, current Scotland hockey player for supporting the girls throughout the day and presenting the prizes.  

Thanks also  to all the parents for their invaluable support today, and to Cuan for all his help coaching and umpiring.

This week P2 had our exciting trip to Craigmillar Castle. On our arrival we were met by two groups of P7 children from Castle View Primary School. One group were the ‘object handlers’ who  shared their expert knowledge of what life was like for the Preston family who lived in the castle in the1600s, and showed us some of the artefacts used by them.  The other group comprised Lord Simon Preston himself and members of his household. They took us on a wonderful tour around the castle starting at the ‘yett’ with the ‘murder holes’ up above, and then into the splendid banqueting hall.   We were led up winding staircases to the roof of the keep where we viewed the ‘p’ pond, and then stepped down into the depths of the castle where we were crammed into a dark, damp dungeon along with a prisoner incarcerated for stealing some bread. We were intrigued by the discovery of a skeleton hidden in the walls, and by the signing of the Craigmillar Bond by nobles intent on getting rid of Lord Darnley. Was Mary Queen of Scots in earshot of the plotting, we asked ourselves? We then climbed onto the ramparts, and pretended the castle was under attack. We fired arrows through the crenels and poured hot sand onto the enemies below trying to scale the castle walls. A thrilling day, and our thanks to the Junior Tour Guides who helped to bring Craigmillar Castle alive and who royally entertained us all!

We were intrigued by the discovery of a skeleton hidden in the walls, and by the signing of the Craigmillar Bond by nobles intent on getting rid of Lord Darnley. Was Mary Queen of Scots in earshot of the plotting, we asked ourselves? We then climbed onto the ramparts, and pretended the castle was under attack. We fired arrows through the crenels and poured hot sand onto the enemies below trying to scale the castle walls. A thrilling day, and our thanks to the Junior Tour Guides who helped to bring Craigmillar Castle alive and who royally entertained us all!

On Thursday both Primary One classes walked through the falling leaves to catch a double decker service bus to Lauriston Castle. The children explored the grounds of the castle for hours searching for different colours and shapes of leaves. They learned to identify a variety of types of trees and discovered the difference between safe and dangerous berries growing wild. They enjoyed splashing in the biggest puddle EVER and negotiated the stepping stones across the Japanese lake. They were cheerful, tireless, attentive, well-behaved and ultimately exhausted!

1stXV  39   Dollar Academy  19

Last week’s rather frenetic try fest with Fettes had been firmly put to bed during training this week, and I have been impressed with how well the whole senior squad has trained with various children slowly coming back from injury and competition for places really hotting up.  

Unfortunately, Max’s hand split open again, so we would be without our skipper and fly half for this game against Dollar Academy, which is always one of the toughest games of the season, and the first signpost for us as to how this season might pan out for this group of boys.  Dollar play with the ball in hands, they have lots of fast runners, and they are usually pretty physical and competitive at the breakdown.  Today would be no different, so I was delighted with the really impressive team performance that we put together and it was another outstanding game of rugby at this level, with both sides showing tremendous skill, commitment and a real ferocity at the breakdown.  No quarter given or asked, and some superb team tries were run in.

The first five minutes saw Dollar keeping possession of the ball albeit in their own half, and we just could not get our hands on it; they moved the point of attach impressively and tested our defence which was excellent today, right the way through the match.  We made our first time tackles – Edward leading from the front in this respect and others followed – and won the battle of the breakdown convincingly all game, as we flooded numbers in and rucked and counter rucked exceptionally well this afternoon.  Their coach commented on it and our superiority at the breakdown was the real difference between the two sides today as we starved Dollar of possession at the start of the 2nd half and pulled away from them.

We opened the scoring with Edward finishing off after some excellent continuity, and after a Dollar try, it was Jack who broke through some tackles to touch down and then Quin to give us a 15-7 lead at half time.  Standing in for the injured Max as captain, he led the side really well today, encouraging all his players and putting in a barnstorming performance at inside centre, running some very direct lines but also using the men outside him when the gaps out wide started to appear later in the game.  

rightColBody

So at half time, the game was very much in the balance, with the breakdown fiercely contested and both sides looking powerful in attack and in defence.  However, we really hit our straps at the start of the second period, scoring four unanswered tries which put the game to bed and a shell shocked Dollar side were powerless to stop out relentless surge and precise attacking play.  Glen came on the wing at the interval and scored an excellent hatrick of tries, running powerfully but also staying wide, using the space out there and linking up really well with his centres.  An attacking blitz that blew Dollar away and showed just what we can do once we have done the hard work up front to win possession and wear defences down; it was a reward for the work of Alexander, Joshua, Ned, Hugo and Leo who carried so well all game and made excellent decisions as to when to off load or go to ground.  The forward pack were mightily good today and it was the backline who benefitted from this.

Conceding two late tries in the final few minutes was perhaps understandable considering the huge defensive effort the whole team put in today; it was a real step up from last week’s game against Fettes which although we won, we lacked that defensive organisation that is so important and only comes through playing together and talking to each other all the time.  It was a superb effort this afternoon with Rory stepping in at fly half and Ollie at scrum half, and both got the back line moving really well today; Rory in particular showed lots of vision and his tackling and jackling, as always, was quite outstanding.

This was a proper performance and I was delighted to see the hard work we have put in in training pay dividends today.  Dollar were a better side than Fettes last week, and we really had to dig in, defend and then take our chances when they appeared after going through phase after phase.  We are just two games in to what is a long season, and plenty of challenges lie ahead; however, we set the standard today, and I know the whole team will be keen to build on this over the coming weeks.

Very well played, every single one of you.  In 16 years running the rugby here, this is a game that stands out as one of the best performances against a quality opposition that really tested us, despite the scoreline.

Next up, Loretto Sevens on Sunday and then Belhaven on Wednesday. On we go.

It was a pleasure to welcome Sandy Duncan and Angus back to Cargilfield this week to do some filming for forthcoming Drumond Park Toys adverts. Connie, Angus and Rory are all former pupils of Cargilfield before going on to Oundle, and it was lovely to catch up with news of them all whilst some

Of our children had great fun performing in front of the camera!

The girls played extremely well today against a strong St Mary’s side.  The opposition were much taller than us but this did not put us off our game.  We started strongly with Sophie scoring early on from a short corner strike.  Sophie quickly followed with another goal from outfield play but the opposition were keen to stick in an pushed up to win a short corner.  Izzy ran out strongly, and blocked their strike at goal and the play quickly turned in our favour again.  Clemmie, Rosanna and Emma worked well in defence and moved the ball well, finding our midfield easily.  Two goals from Saphira followed, one as a deflection from Sophie which ended up in the top of the net.  Izzy scored a well-deserved goal towards half time after a display of great individual skill.

Half time: Cargilfield 5 St Mary’s 0

The second half started off at a good pace and goals from Sophie and Izzy soon followed.  Flora was a strong member of our team today, and worked tirelessly in midfield, feeding strong balls through to our strikers.  Laura also found her confidence today, and it was great to see her play strongly and bravely in the circle.  She had a lovely shot at goal that was just wide but played with determination.  St Mary’s piled on the pressure towards the end of the match and slotted 2 past us however Caitlin worked to the death and made some super saves in the last few minutes.


Full time: Cargilfield 9  St Mary's  0

U9 As V St Mary’s

The A team played a reduced size team of six girls against St Mary’s. We lost the pass and St Mary’s took the centre pass. We had been working hard on maintaining our positions and the initial play was quite good with passes going nicely between the girls, and girls running ahead to be in good positions to receive the ball. Savannah, Bella and Isla were working well together. Unfortunately, we were out skilled by some of the St Mary’s girls who won the ball back quickly and then moved it down the pitch at speed.  Too often we were slow to tackle and watched passively. We need to keep up or efforts at all times especially if we think someone is better than us. Savannah and Bella did manage to score goals however but St Mary’s were strong, slotting in five good goals in the first half. 

I was pleased with our play in the second half; we put some better play together and the switching of Valentina to defender and Emilia to midfield worked well. When Savannah moved forward we scored again and the match suddenly got much closer. Unfortunately, our defenders had their backs to the ball at one point allowing an easy goal and despite our best efforts we were beaten 8:6. Our goals came from Savanah and Bella. Good effort girls, we need to keep working on our fitness and our positioning and remember to tackle.

Final score Cargilfield 6, St Mary’s 8

U9 B V St Mary’s

It was with a changed line up that the B team faced St Mary’s this afternoon.

Bonnie joined us at Centre with Millie and Emilia on the wings, Gabriel at midfield and Aglaya and Eliza at the back.  The backs had been working extremely hard on their defence with Mrs Mackerron in their training sessions. This was really obvious and their defending today was very good indeed. Eliza held her position well and avoided following the ball which left her well placed to deflect any balls coming form St Mary’s towards the goal. We still tend to cluster around the ball rather than look for space further up the pitch when we have possession. However, this was a convincing performance with goals from Bonnie, Emilia and Millie.

Final score Cargilfield 6, St Mary’s 1

Our second fixture of the season was against our neighbours at Merchiston Castle, after some kilt related issues our boys warmed up with real accuracy and were split into two teams for two touch fixtures against Merchiston.

The first of our teams to play Merchiston started brightly with some fabulous continuity and handling on display creating an excellent early score. Thereafter, defence was on top and trench warfare ensued with little headway for the majority of the game, until Theo turned provider for Jonah to scurry through the opposition defence for the deciding try.

Our second team after pinpointing some things to work on from our first game came out the blocks fast with impressive handling, footwork and a better appreciation of space. This allowed for some free flowing rugby with Harry, Wilfred and Dexter all running some fabulous angles in attack. This resulted in four try victory, with Dexter impressing bagging a hattrick of tries. 

Most pleasing was the strength in depth of the squad, this was highlighted in the training match we played against each other at the end. The boys are continuing to develop and enjoy their rugby which is most pleasing to see!

We played some really good rugby today, notable for better team work and positional play. We looked like a proper team at times today, keeping our shape and trusting our teammates to perform their tasks. We showed patience, aggression and good decision making. 

It was good to see supporting runners when a line break was made and there were some amazing off-loads. 

At 5-3 at half time, it shows how much we improved in the second half, really gelling as a team. Although this was a real team performance, there were some terrific individual displays, too. Alexander led with heart and grit, Cody won lots of ball and Tom made some darting runs and textbook tackles. All the boys tackled well today but man of the match goes to Thabo who stood out for some solid hits in the tackle area and some clever running angles.  Final score 17-4.

Still plenty to work on but a really impressive and encouraging game of rugby today. Well played, boys.

Stripes:

Won 12-6

I was very pleased with how the Stripes played today. From the off, they were straight out of the traps and onto the offensive. They worked well as a team, offloading the ball after each tackle and using the space well. Defensively, there was some superb tackles, which put a lot of pressure on the opposition and we used this to our advantage. We went in at half time 7-5. I was ecstatic about their second half performance, having taking my advice on at the interval, they took it to another level and completely dominated the match. 

Blues:

Drew 10-10

The Blues also attacked well individually in their match but took time to work as a team, support each other and use the space out wide. Charging up the middle is not always the answer. Defensively, we tackled well as individuals but again needed to work more as a tram to stop the opposition from easily running through the gaps. Having said that, it was a good game to watch and the boys can be pleased with their overall play.

Well done, boys!

After weeks of fine weather every Wednesday, the Under 11s travelled up to Dollar to play rugby in quite contrasting conditions.  Steady rain fell for much of the match but the boys still managed to handle the ball reasonably well, giving one of their best attacking performances of the season.  Using the width of the field, they patiently worked their way up, passing the ball through the hands and either popping or setting the ruck after the tackle.  The boys maintained this high-quality play for much of the match with tries coming from all quarters. 

In defence, Thomas was a pillar of strength, making tackle after tackle for the duration of the match, thwarting many an attack with the pressure he created and he was certainly the man of the match.  Will and Harry were excellent in the ruck and won many a turnover for their team.

The Cargilfield boys eventually secured a win by 9 tries to 5.  An excellent performance by all of the boys.

The U11 girls were excited to play against St Mary’s today and travelled down to Tweedbank for their match. It was our first game playing short corners and sadly we could not capitalise on them. This is definitely something we need to work on before the IAPS next week. The girls weren’t quite on the ball and a bit lethargic in the first quarter, but after a stern word at the interval the girls really came alive with some fantastic team play. There was some excellent positional play by Lucy S who linked up very well with Venitia H for a couple of the goals. We have really gained confidence this term and I hope we continue this throughout the term.

Well done on another good win 7-2

2nd team:
Throughout the term so far, the use of space on the pitch has been a key point in training. Today the team utilised their space brilliantly, with excellent decision making on when to pass or dribble. It was a great team performance but a particular stand out was Alannah in defence, who put some superb balls forwards. Captain of the day, Katinka, was brilliant in midfield and Josephine and Poppy got some great shots away up front. Although Cargilfield were fairly dominant, St Mary’s had their own attacking opportunities, one of which was successful. Valentina made some fantastic saves, particularly in a 1v1 situation. A great performance against a strong team. Final score- 6-1.

3rd team:
Cargilfield won this match 8-0, despite some good attacking efforts from St Mary’s. Georgia was a strong defensive player, however also grabbed herself 2 goals and was a key part in 2 others. We kept the pressure on well, particularly at hit-outs, with Bethany picking it up well in mid-field. The highlight goal was scored by Charlotte after a fantastic ball in from Cara. Charlotte stepped up brilliantly as captain; leading from the front but it was another real team effort that earned the girls the win.

A Hurdle that can be Jumped!

Question: What do all of these Form 6 maths problems have in common?

  • Work out three quarters of 48
  • Express 105 as a product of its prime factors.
  • Multiply 479 by 34
  • Find the area of a triangle with base 8 metres and height 9 metres.
  • Add 3/8 and 7/12
  • Solve 7x + 2 = 37

Answer:  At the most basic, they all require the use of times tables in one form or another.

(See the websites: mymaths and ttrockstars)

The phrase ‘times tables’ elicits a wide range of responses amongst children: from the animated, hand-waving readiness.… to the slow slump in the chair – a perceptible embodiment of the dread that they feel within. 

Most students’ feelings lie between these extremes and are dependent on which times table is in question or how recently they gave them any thought.  

Whatever a student’s feelings about them, times tables are still fundamental to learning maths.

Confidence in the subject relies heavily on a robust knowledge of tables since they impact on or support most maths topics that are learned in school.  Their use goes well beyond the fairly unsubtle 7 × 8 = 56 as used in basic operations, including area, volume and ratios… to their use in simple applications such as division: 56 ÷ 8 = 7, fractions: ¼ of 24 = 6 and then onto identifying factors and multiples, identifying and utilising prime numbers, selecting lowest common denominators, simplifying fractions and solving equations.

Knowing the times tables, almost on reflex, frees up processing power for tackling the prescribed problems rather than taking the focus off the job at hand to deal with finding the answer to 7 × 8, for example.

By the time children reach Form 6 we like them to be comfortable and quick with the whole range of times tables and be able to identify the multiples of each times table too. 

Here are some learning targets:

1) Quick recall of the 2-12 times tables as they are usually written: 1 × 2 = 2, 2 × 2 = 4, etc.

2)    Know in which times tables multiples can be found (finding factors): 24 is in 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 12 times tables but 11 is only a multiple in the 1 and 11 tables.

3)    Know them ‘backwards’ (division): 72 ÷ 6 = 7,   66 ÷ 6 = 11, etc.

4)    Recognising multiples of a number. e.g.  Which of these numbers are multiples of 4?  10, 16, 28, 30

    5)   Divisibility tests for 2 to 9 times tables.

    By and large, times tables will need to be learned by practice and more practice, whether on paper, spoken out loud, playing games or on the wide range of apps available. 

    Learning times tables can be hard work but it doesn’t have to be boring and here are a couple of links to websites that Cargilfield subscribes to which can make learning them less arduous and, dare I say, fun!

    Mathematics presents a world of interesting puzzles and problems but sometimes it’s just the simple things that hold us back from enjoying these fully.

      It was wonderful to get the whole school crammed in to Chapel along with lots of parents and staff for this year's Harvest Festival service.  We welcomed Dr Barr, our school Chaplain and Minister at Cramond Kirk, who conducted the service, and the large amount of produce will be sent to Fresh Start which is a local Edinburgh charity which Dr Barr helped to set up 20 years ago.  It provides help and support for homeless people in Edinburgh, allowing them to try and make a 'fresh start'.

      On a glorious day up on Ferry Road our U10's played against a formidable Stewart Melville team and having to adapt to the age grade law variations.

      Despite this they made a fantastic start with some superb interplay from Charles and Tom utilsing the speed and strength of Thabo and Xander. As the half went on Cargilfield continued to improve with some fabulous tackling from Conrad and scrambling defence from the group as a whole.

      This total commitment was embodied by Euan who was a late addition to the squad and rightly picked up player of the match with a brilliant all round display. Cargilfield played some fabulous rugby running out 14-10 winners, a very promising start to the season built on solid defence and a real attacking flair!

      Primary 3 have been using all sorts of practical learning strategies this term whilst learning how to build numbers to 1000 and adding/subtracting to 100 in maths.  We have been using all sorts of tools to support our learning including; numicon, loop cards, dienes, thousand and hundred squares aswell as number lines!   Well done Primary 3 a great start to this term.

      What a glorious afternoon for the Pipe Band to perform at the Boardwalk Beach Club down on the sea front at Cramond on Friday afternoon. A fantastic first performance of the year and thank you to Eddie for hosting us!

      We were delighted to raise money for Fresh Start, a charity close to the heart of Dr Barr, our Chaplain and Minister at Cramond Kirk.

      Under-10 B’s and C’s vs Stewart’s Melville College

      Three Under-10 teams travelled away to play against Stewart’s Melville College.

      The B team got off to a strong start, scoring a try the opening minute.  The opposition responded immediately with a try of their own.  The match continued in this vein as both teams struggled defensively and scoring was a little too easy.

      In the second half, Cargilfield employed better structure in defence, holding their line and their width, trusting their teammates a little more.  This allowed them to repel a couple of attacks and they soon found themselves leading on the score sheet. As it was hot day, both teams began to flag a little near the end but Cargilfield managed to keep up the tempo enough to secure a win by two tries.  A competitive match with great play from both sides.

      The C team showed tremendous commitment in their match, having to deal with some fast runners and great passing.  The boys attacked well though, with James and Joseph leading the way in attack.  The other boys provided excellent support to the player on the ball and they were able to keep the ball moving through the hands with reasonable fluidity.

      In defence, they were a little vulnerable; although they tackled well, lack of structure resulted in lots of space out wide which the opposition could easily exploit. The SMC team earned a well-deserved win by three tries in a twenty-one try match but a fine effort nevertheless from the Cargilfield boys.

      Last weekend, Form 6 travelled to Berwick-Upon-Tweed to take part in a boarding weekend at Ford Castle. We arrived on Friday evening, made our own beds, and then spent the evening running around in the castle grounds playing Cops and Robbers. Saturday and Sunday were filled with activities including: zip-wire, obstacle course, leap of faith, castle Olympics, fencing and Jacob's ladder. We also had a tour of the castle, including being shown some medieval weapons and being locked in the dungeons. The children had a great, active, weekend strengthening friendships and developing both independence and teamwork.

      A real pleasure to welcome Lord Campbell, former leader of the Liberal Democrats and Team GB Olympic athlete, to Cargilfield this afternoon. A fascinating insight in to his life in politics and the current Brexit turmoil in Westminster.

      He also brought along his Team GB Olympic blazer from the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

      A real pleasure to welcome Lord Campbell, former leader of the Liberal Democrats and Team GB Olympic athlete, to Cargilfield this afternoon. A fascinating insight in to his life in politics and the current Brexit turmoil in Westminster.

      He also brought along his Team GB Olympic blazer from the 1964 Olympic Games in Tokyo.

      Our budding potential art scholars spent a couple of hours down at Cramond Kirk this morning doing some drawings out in the sunshine. What a lovely peaceful place it was, and our thanks to all at the kirk for making it possible!

      1stXV  38  Fettes  36

      This is my 16thyear of running the Rugby here at Cargilfield, and we have had some very successful sides over all these years; however, in all that time, just a few matches stand out as truly exceptional and today was one of them.  Credit must go to both sets of players who went at each other hammer and tongs with no quarter given, and the skills on show were a terrific example of how the new SRU laws at this level should be utilised with the ball in play for long periods, and players allowed to show off their skills as well as compete fiercely in the tackle and at the breakdown.  A memorable afternoon in so many ways, and yes, it was satisfying to come out on top, but we have set down a marker for the rest of the season as to how we want to play the game and I know this group of boys will  use this as the benchmark as we get in to big games of the season after half term.

      Having enjoyed a really promising first hit out two weeks ago at the Merchiston Festival, the past two weeks have seen us champing at the bit to get started, and we could not have asked for a better afternoon to play rugby: a fantastic surface on which to play fast running rugby and lovely sunshine too.  Having suffering a couple of injuries over the past ten days, this gave other boys a chance to step up and with competition for places, it was a chance to give one or two an opportunity to play at this level, and all rose to the occasion which was super to see.

      We cam out of the traps very quickly indeed, scoring three unanswered tries within the first five minutes without Fettes touching the ball.  We dominated the breakdown all game to be honest with some excellent jackling to steal the ball, but Rory, Max and Edward all finished impressive team tries with the ball being recycled time and again, and some excellent lines run in the backs. However, Fettes were not going to lie down and they had some strong runners – their large boy in the centre was particularly effective – and a few times we slipped off the tackle and allowed him the chance to stretch his legs; he was big and quick and unless we closed him down early, he was hard to stop. This is something we need to work on for next week: a bit more communication out side, not flooding the ruck if we have lost possession and come up quicker, and together, to close the opposition down. It is early days, and I was pleased with Jack and Quin’s communication overall, but we need to be a bit tighter defensively too.

      We were 26-14 up at the break, with much to be pleased about.  However, we left four tries out there in the first half and so really the game should have been done and dusted by then: we attempted unnecessary off loads in the red zone, instead of going to ground, quick ruck and try scored. We must learn from this, because we should have scored over 40 points which would have been game over.  But we didn't and this made for a hugely exciting and nailbiting 2ndhalf of rugby.

      Having conceded another try to the giant centre, we once again played some terrific controlled rugby, moving the ball wide and at pace, dominating the breakdown which allowed Edward to score again before Oliver scored the try of the game in the corner showing quick feet and a brilliant finish after we had gone through a lot of phases.  The forwards did play well all game although a couple of you were short of fitness and slowed towards the end; we also must keep the game simple when it opens up like it did today, and keep rucking which is a real strength of ours – knowing when to off load and when to go to ground is something we need to look at. Making those good decisions under pressure.

      Being more than two scores ahead in the final quarter, we again allowed Fettes back in to the game with their centre scoring two more tries, both the result of us forcing the play when in their 22, when we should be scoring not spilling the ball trying something too ambitious and then losing our defensive shape for him to run in from half way.  This meant we were just two points ahead, last play of the game…..the big Fettes boy had the ball, slipped off two tackles and was sprinting down the touchline…..the match winning score?  It seemed like it…..but Fergus had other ideas as he nailed him with a textbook tackle round the ankles and he fell in to touch on the half way line. Game over.

      The first game of the season is always an exciting one with everyone keen to impress.  We did show tremendous skills and commitment today and the way in which we tried to play the game was really pleasing.  Mr Deans said he had not seen a game like this played at this level – high praise indeed.  Yes, things to work on, but we are up and running and once we learn to be more clinical in the red zone, my fingernails will not be bitten to the quick!

      Roddy Deans, Director of Rugby at Merchiston and someone who has coached Scotland age grade sides over the years, was full of praise for the standard of rugby on show, and rightly so. It was a terrific afternoon and I am excited about what lies ahead this season.  Very well played indeed, boys!

      A game that will certainly live long in the memory.

      The girls travelled across to our neighbours at Fettes for our second game of the season.  We knew it would be a stiffer test today after last week and we looked a little nervous at the start of the match.  Fettes also looked a little nervy but after about 5 mins, the play settled and both teams began to play a bit better.  Saphira had an early goal disallowed but the girls kept at it and we won the ball and a short corner.  A straight strike from Sophie started the scoring and the play was pretty much in our attacking half for the most of the half.  The Fettes defence were good and they held solid, keeping us out.  Izzy found the back of the net not long before half time and we finished the half 2-0 up.

      Fettes were keen to score but Emma and Clemmie worked hard and kept them out. Flora battled hard to get the ball wide and we managed to get the ball through to Sophie who scored with a reverse strike.  Caitlin was put under a bit of pressure towards the end but kept the Fettes girls out and the match finished 3-0 to Cargilfield.

      The girls travelled across to our neighbours at Fettes for our second game of the season.  We knew it would be a stiffer test today after last week and we looked a little nervous at the start of the match.  Fettes also looked a little nervy but after about 5 mins, the play settled and both teams began to play a bit better.  Saphira had an early goal disallowed but the girls kept at it and we won the ball and a short corner.  A straight strike from Sophie started the scoring and the play was pretty much in our attacking half for the most of the half.  The Fettes defence were good and they held solid, keeping us out.  Izzy found the back of the net not long before half time and we finished the half 2-0 up.

      Fettes were keen to score but Emma and Clemmie worked hard and kept them out. Flora battled hard to get the ball wide and we managed to get the ball through to Sophie who scored with a reverse strike.  Caitlin was put under a bit of pressure towards the end but kept the Fettes girls out and the match finished 3-0 to Cargilfield.

      One of our most closely fought local rivalries lived up to expectations this afternoon in a match where the result was only decided in the last minute. 

      The girls took a little time to settle and were probably unsettled by their strange new coach. Positional play initially went out of the window but Fettes weren’t able to capitalize and allowed Cargilfield to settle down and play with more discipline. 

      We found ourselves able to move the ball forward with some accuracy and incision and, despite allowing Fettes too much space to score their first goal, went into half-time with a 2-1 lead. Poppy and Clara took their chances well.

      Losing Katinka soon after half-time did put us under more pressure but Isabelle and Hannah were solid in defence, often stepping up to make well-timed interceptions and tackles.

      Sadly, Fettes’ growing confidence seemed to tell in the second half and we were less good at covering the ground as we had before half-time. Two goals went in near to the end and victory was snatched from us.

      It was a super game in which Valentina made a number of good saves and in which our defence looked solid. I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to see the girls play and will watch their progress with interest!

      Won 7-5

      Well done to the boys for an enjoyable afternoon of rugby. The team spirit before the match was very pleasing and the players were supportive of each other when deciding the team positions.

      Max was captain for the day and he led by example with some surging runs and brave tackling. Adam was similarly committed and displayed some quick feet as he danced over for his try.

      Seb. and Kyan were the orchestrators of many of the moves and their speed, sensible kicking and penetrative runs brought quite a few tries. Angus and Duncan made fine breaks for their tries and James and Robin were willing to graft in the scrum against much bigger boys. Diederik was skilled and strong and helped both the backs and forwards to a well-deserved win.

      The boys should be proud of their efforts and the manner in which they conducted themselves.

      On a blustery September day at Fettes our U9's tasted their first competitive rugby for Cargilfield. Our boys were brimming with excitement and put this enthusiasm to good use scoring first through Jonah, which would become a familiar theme as the game went on.

      As the half carried on Fettes began to take the upper hand and after some gallant defence from Alex, Charles and Harry took the lead at the half by four tries to three.  

      The second half got underway in much the same fashion with another two Fettes tries giving them a commanding lead.  After some encouraging words from parents, staff and players the boys picked up the intensity of their defence with an outstanding tackle from Archie, with some delicate passing from Monty and aggressive running from Wilfred we managed to get back into the game at seven tries each.

      Sadly, Fettes found their second wind, running out 9-7 winners in the closing stages. Lots to improve on but a really positive first outing for the boys, full of passion and resilience!

      The girls were very excited to play in their first matches. To make the occasion a lot of fun and to help the girls learn new skills and play as a team we divided both sets of girls into 3 mixed teams.

      Blue and Green played first. This was a very evenly matched game with great work on the wing from Aglya. Beatrice was strong in defence and Millie also made a fantastic effort on the wing with some lovely hard passes. 

      Final score 1 goal each

      Blue and Yellow played next. Some of the blues were feeling a little tired after the first game but again worked really hard. There was some fantastic defending work with Emilia for the Yellows running her socks off.

      Final score 2 all

      In the final match of Yellow V Green Gabriella was in the middle and took a couple of fantastic shots at goal. She worked hard marking her player and was accurate in her passes. Aglya was good in defence for the Greens and Emilia again showed amazing pitch coverage for the Yellows.

      Final score 1 all

      Our U9 Tigers after a brief wait on the sidelines began their season with a fantastic game against a spirited Fettes side. After some promising build up play from Iain, Wolfe, Hugh and Kasim sadly Fettes broke and scored two quick tries to take an early lead in the game.

      The game ebbed and flowed with neither side able to make a decisive blow until George on a what appeared initially to be a lap of the Fettes campus managed to avoid five would be tacklers and get Cargilfied back into the game.

      After half time Fettes made the more impressive start scoring another brace of tries, to what would appear to put the game to bed.. These quick tries woke up the team and two tries from Maxi briefly got us back into the game, time, however was not on our side and these proved to be consolation scores. A terrific effort from the boys and an encouraging start to the season!

      Our U9 Tigers after a brief wait on the sidelines began their season with a fantastic game against a spirited Fettes side. After some promising build up play from Iain, Wolfe, Hugh and Kasim sadly Fettes broke and scored two quick tries to take an early lead in the game.

      The game ebbed and flowed with neither side able to make a decisive blow until George on a what appeared initially to be a lap of the Fettes campus managed to avoid five would be tacklers and get Cargilfied back into the game.

      After half time Fettes made the more impressive start scoring another brace of tries, to what would appear to put the game to bed.. These quick tries woke up the team and two tries from Maxi briefly got us back into the game, time, however was not on our side and these proved to be consolation scores. A terrific effort from the boys and an encouraging start to the season!

      Won 8-6

      On a mild Scottish afternoon, the boys were eager to play their first full contact match after training really hard to learn the proper technique of the tackle. They started the match with lots of energy and pace and quickly dominated the game. I was pleased with the tries we scored in the first half but I challenged the boys in the second half to work more as a team than individuals to score tries. They took on my instructions and I was pleased with the unselfishness they showed in passing the ball to their teammates. An area to work on for next match is our tackling of the opposition once they have broken through our line; they were great when the opposition was running directly at them but not so much when they had to give chase.

      Well done, boys!

      7-2 win

      Well done to the U11D who played very well today and achieved a great win of 7 goals to 2. Lulu scored twice and Cara also scored a goal. Leading the goal tally was Malayka with a grand total of 4 goals. The girls were great in defence and Iona was solid as keep only letting in 2 goals. A great team effort.

      U11 A&B Rugby v Fettes

      A won 4-3, B won 7-5

      On a mild, overcast day that was perfect for rugby, we enjoyed a great afternoon of competitive sport with our friends along the road at Fettes. The A team took a while to warm up and started nervously. A bit ponderous in defence, we allowed the Fettes boys to run and we let in a couple of tries. Some superb cover tackles from Cody kept us in the game during the first half. We gathered ourselves well, though, inspired by some dedicated, skilful play by Tom and some straight-up hard tackles from Thabo. Once we found our groove, we played some good rugby. Some oppressive defence, particularly in the second half, gave Fettes little room with the ball. In attack we looked towards the space and passed well. Some nice runs from Adam could have led to more scores if a bit more support was there. Improved shape and organisation were good to see. Lots more to come from this talented group.

      Our B team started much more confidently than their pals in the A team and scored some strong tries in the opening minutes. Will showed his strength with some determined runs. Our first-up tackling was good in patches but faded a little in the second half, allowing the Fettes boys back into the match. Some brave and committed tackling from the captain, Oliver, kept his team in the lead and inspired his players. Harry and Hayden looked dangerous with the ball when they came on in the second half. Well played boys.

      We welcomed Fettes to Cargilfield this afternoon and they arrived with a Goalie so Rowan very kindly volunteered to put the GK kit on for the first time and have a go.  As captain, her first duty was to win the toss which she did and chose to start with the ball.  Right from the start, Fettes were a bit hungrier for the ball and flooded forward.  Cargilfield defended well to keep Fettes out from the D but eventually their persistence paid off and Rowan was unable to keep the ball out.  The second came after a fortuitous bounce off a foot but we were letting a lot go to keep the game flowing.  In the second, Isobel, who had kept her position really well in the first half had a few more chances but was unable to convert them.  Rowan played outfield in the second half and was strong on the ball. Natasha was lively in midfield and chased the ball for the whole time she was on the pitch.  Fettes managed to get another goal despite, Bea coming on in goal to help before she played for the B team.  Jacqueline, Julia and Amenah were great at blocking the ball and making strong passes. Tessa was terrific in midfield as she turned strong and tried to take the ball forward. Malysa, Hattie and Emilia worked well and showed that their hockey skills are developing each week. On the day, Fettes were just a bit too strong and had skillful players in key positions which meant that they were a difficult team to break down.  However, we kept going and showed some excellent sportsmanship at the end. Players of the match were Rowan for stepping up to play in Goal for the first time ever;  Jacqueline with her excellent tackling and playing out from the back and Isobel for working really hard in attack.

      Fettes won the toss to start, this our first competitive fixture, and we enjoyed a very close competitive game. Cargilfield dominated the first third, scoring five goals, one from Emilia, one from Nadia, one own goal and two from Savannah. I was very pleased to see the girls spreading out and thinking carefully of the passes they needed to make. The second third was much tighter and our girls flagged a little. Fettes girls swopped positions and seemed much stronger, scoring some fine goals. 

      At the end of the second third the score had narrowed and the game was much closer. Fettes had several good attempts on goal and Valentina and Bonnie worked hard in defence. In the last third a goal from Savannah was disallowed as she lifted the ball. Fettes scored two further goals but Savannah came back to score a final goal, resulting in a win for Cargilfield. I had asked the girls to play their best ever hockey in the last ten minutes and they did just that with some lovely run ins and accurate passing from Isla, Nadia, Emilia and Savannah. Final score Cargilfield 7 Fettes 5

      Some skills to work on but a super first competitive fixture. Well done!

      Under 11C Rugby v Fettes

      The boys were ready for the challenge of facing one of their closest rivals.  For some of our

      boys this was their first full contact match of the season and they relished the opportunity to

      make as many tackles as they could.

      Paddy and Kit held their wing positions well, thereby providing the wide option which was to prove so useful.  The rest of the team took charge early on and were able to make some great ground-gaining runs which eventually saw Kit, Freddie and George cross the try line fairly quick succession.

      Not to be out done, Fettes responded with some strong attacks and scored a couple of tries to stay in touch.  Zac, Freddie and Alexander continued to press forward with some incisive straight runs and they contributed to the scoring in the second half.  The whole team tackled well and forced a few knock-ons that allowed them to maintain the advantage.

      The boys eventually won 8-5 with Alexander named the man of the match for his determination in attack and robust defence.

      rightColBody

      Under 11D Rugby v Fettes

      The boys took part in a six-a-side match that provided a great opportunity to put into practice what that have been working on in training: appropriate positioning and running forwards rather than sideways.  They implemented these tasks really well and took the game to opposition from the first whistle to the last.  The scored freely in the first half but didn’t match the strength of their attacks with tackling to back it up and as a result Fettes scored freely too.

      In the second half they improved their tackling and were able to stay narrowly ahead, eventually coming out as 7-5 winners.

      Well done to all the boys for an outstanding and positive effort.

      A good game from the 3rds on a nice dry afternoon on one of Fettes' astro. The girls played well, displaying a good defence and excellent sportmanship. They should be proud of their performance as they were facing a strong opposition.

      Well done, girls.

      The new Eco Committee had the first meeting of the year today. There was a variety of interesting and innovative ideas that can hopefully be implemented this year at Cargilfield.  They looked at the action plan from last year, ticking off the things that had been achieved and adding on new targets. There are some great new plans afoot which now need to be discussed with Mr Taylor.

      Break time at Cargilfield is 55 minutes long which is perfect for children to do a number of various activities during this time.  The Art room and Design centre are always a hive of activity, with children bust working on individual projects and portfolios which is terrific to see!

      It was the farewell party for Oor Wullie, a charity which has captivated Scotland over the past few months and has raised funds to support Glasgow Children’s Hospital Charity, Edinburgh Children’s Hospital Charity and the ARCHIE Foundation, helping children in hospital across the country.

      Designed by all sorts of schools and organisations, the 147 Oor Wullies have become landmarks across Edinburgh, Glasgow and other cities across Scotland and our very very own one was designed and painted by the Nursery children! It was a fantastic charitable initiative and George was on hand this weekend to give ours one final send off!

      On Friday morning, the upper school assembled in Chapel to choose which charity we are going to support for this year.  Last year, we raised over £21,000 as a school which was shared between Spartans FC, The Yard and Pilton Youth Group - a fantastic effort from the Pre Prep, the Upper School and the Friends of Cargilfield!

      After hearing presentations from all of the form captains about nine shortlisted charities, everyone voted for the charity they preferred and placed their voting sheet in to the ballot box. The winner will be announced shortly!

      The Under 9s were very excited to be involved in their first fixture. When we arrived in Crieff they were split into three different teams mixed with the Ardvreck girls. We then played a few games and the team waiting on the side lines worked on skills. The girls enjoyed meeting the Ardvreck players and had a chance to improve their hockey in a relaxed atmosphere. Next match is likely to be a competitive affair!

      The U11B team headed to Craigclowan for their first game of the season. We played the game in quarters which allowed us to discuss play and set targets in between. This was ably led by our captain Annika. The first two quarters were dominated by Craigclowan with Cargilfield struggling to hold positions. Thankfully, Jessica and Bea held the defence together. After this shaky start, we stepped up to the mark and started to see some great passing play. This was rewarded in the final quarter with a goal for Athena. Final score 1-0. A positive start to the season- well done girls.

      Playing Stewart's Melvile is always a tough proposition given their very large numbers, but I really did enjoy taking the U12B team this afternoon, under glorious blue skies, and although they came out on the wrong end of the scoreline, there was some real improvement as the afternoon went on.  A number of these boys opt to do outdoor pursuits on weekday afternoons, so have not played much rugby so far this term, but slowly but surely, they grew in confidence and there were some excellent passages of play, with some strong running, good off loads and excellent ball presentation skills in the tackle.  Joshua gave the team much of its forward momentum, but Matthew was excellent at scrum half and both Set and James H showed a good awareness of space and jinked their way through the first tackle on many an occasion. We were rewarded for all our effort with a super try right at the end - well deserved!

      To improve: well, our first up tackling lacked aggression and rarely did we tackle aggressively, so allowing the Stew Mel boys time to off load and keep the ball moving.  Also, we must communicate more with each other in defence and when we have the ball! Keep talking and keep smiling!

      Thank you for giving me a lovely afternoon!

      Having trained hard over the last couple of weeks and learnt the basics of rugby, the boys were very eager to have their first competitive match. They looked very smart in their kilts did Cargilfield proud in the way they conducted themselves on their first away match.

      Stripes: Lost 4-3

      I was pleased how the boys improved throughout the match and got used to working as a team, having only started practising match situations on Monday. They took on board the advice given to them and tightened up their defence in the second half. I was very pleased with their tackling and the pressure they put on the opposition. It was good to see them learn during the match to use the space available to them rather than just running into the opposition. An area that I would like them to improve on during training is to make sure that in defence they cover all areas of the pitch rather than being moths to a flame so that the opposition cannot simply run through big gaps.

      Blues:Won 8-6

      Well done, boys!

      The 2ndgirls also played extremely well today and they were rewarded by a strong win.  Poppy was on fire today and pressured the opposition from the word go.  A strike from Poppy led to the first goal of the day from Clara who rebounded it in.  Hannah and Issy B were very strong at the back and the Craigclowan girls struggled to get anything past them.  They fed some great balls up the pitch and it was Issy’s strong run up the entire length of the pitch before passing the ball to Poppy in the circle that led to our 2ndgoal from Poppy.  

      Our play after half time slowed a bit and we struggled to open the game up.  There was some lovely space on the right which we didn’t quite manage to get the ball in to however another goal from Poppy from a short corner gave us a new lease of energy and the latter part of the second half saw some entertaining play. Katinka and Clara linked well and both girls tried hard to score.  Katinka scored a lovely half volley from a shot rebounded off the goal keeper from a Clara strike and Alannah soon added to the score sheet too with a goal from the right.  Rosanna was unlucky not to score and dominated the midfield, trying hard to get the ball up in to the circle. Valentina sadly did not have much action today but with such a strong bunch of girls, I am not surprised that she was rarely challenged.

      The 1sthockey girls had their first outing of the season against Craigclowan today.  It almost felt like summer hockey with the sun shining down and the sky clear.  We started well with Saphira slotting in 2 goals very quickly.  The pressure was firmly fixed in the Craigclowan defensive end for most of the first half, and another goal from Saphira came from a short corer.  The opposition battled hard to get back in the game but Sophie and Izzy ran through them, and they struggled to defend their 3D skills. Izzy was next to find the net with an lovely top corner shot.  

      With the score at 5-0 at half time, we could relax a bit and enjoy the game.  We maybe relaxed a bit too much as Craigclowan powered down the pitch and were keen to score but luckily Caitlin was on top form and she made an excellent save to keep a clean sheet.  Emma and Clemmie were tested a bit more in the second half but they linked well and kept the ball away from the circle and managed to get it up time after time to our midfield.  Our marking is something we need to work on and luckily we weren’t pressed too hard here but this is something we will be working on in the coming sessions.  Flora worked particularly hard in midfield and quietly but accurately fed some great balls through for our attack.  Laura scored her first goal of the season from a lovely ball through from Sophie, and it was great to see her so composed on the ball.  Three further goals followed from Saphira (2) and Sophie to see the match finish a comfortable 10-0.

      A spirited few games of rugby today for the U11 squad. We faced a skilful and strong St Leonard’s team with two particularly good young players who dominated the flow of play. Nevertheless, we competed well and scored in both matches. Our defence was good, on the whole, although a couple of missed first-time tackles leaves us scrambling. 

      Against a less experienced Riley team, we played some strong rugby and scored some good tries. As well as working on our first-up tackling technique, we also need to work on support runs and our off loads from the deck.

      It was great to see the boys playing in such good spirit and improving as the season progresses. 

      Cargilfield Team 1 v St Leonards lost 3-1

      Cargilfield Team 2 v Riley won 5-2

      Cargilfield Team 2 v St Leonards lost 2-1

      Cargilfield Team 1 v Riley won 3-1

      Cargilfield Team 1 v Cargilfield Team 2 draw 1-1

      We were delighted to receive the news that Cargilfield was one of the final five nominations in the Tatler Schools' Best Prep School of the Year category at the award ceremony in London this week.  Our old friends from North Yorkshire, Aysgarth, won and we look forward to meeting them home and away on the rugby field later this term!

      A lovely way to start what promises to be another exciting year at Cargifleidl!

      The 4th Girls’ Hockey Team had to wait a while in the sweltering September heat before they could start. They began the game very well with Iona in midfield looking to get the ball up to her front players in Lulu and Cara. Both girls did very well to pull the defenders away and allow Emma to drive into the D and take a good shot which the keeper could do nothing about. We continued to work hard but Craigclowan played some very nice and fast-paced hockey. They scored two break away goals to lead at half time but we had defended well and Cicely and Annabella were no nonsense defenders. A quick reshuffle, allowed Cara to drop deeper into midfield and support Iona. Cara drove at the defense and had lots of attempts but we couldn’t pick up the loose balls or the rebounds from the keeper who was having an awesome game. Her opposite number in our goal, Arya wasn’t too busy thanks to Cicely and Annabella clearing everything back down to Iona and Cara. Georgia managed to play a nice pass back to Cara who squeezed the ball through the keeper’s legs to equalize. It was looking like a draw until Lulu who didn’t have too many chances, took the best one that fell to her and pushed the ball with terrific composure into the bottom corner. Overall, no one deserved to lose the match but we took our chance when it came. In terms of player of the match, it is a difficult one because everyone tried very hard. None more so than Wendy who was playing in her first every hockey match and got stuck in and ran to the ball with great enthusiasm and energy so special mention must go to her. Well played girls – what a terrific entertaining game of hockey!

      Cargilfield 3rds 3    Craigclowan 2

      In beautiful sunshine, the 3rd Girls’ Hockey Team played in an exciting end to end game with evenly matched teams.Having gone one nil down the girls showed great determination and resilience to come back and play some excellent hockey. Josephine was strong in midfield and linked the defense up well with the attack. Up front, Georgia capitalizedon a rebound from Josephine’s shot to get us back level. At the back, Charlotte was composed under pressure andmade sensible choices with her passing from deep. Bethany in the first half supported her well until her move into left midfield for the second where she battled hard against their superb right winger. Having had an impressive first half up front, Matilda was tremendous in defense in the second half and cleared the ball without hesitation when there was danger. Rose found a lot of space in midfield and made some great reverse pickups from the balls out of defense. She played a part in the second goal with a pass out to Josephine who struck high into the net giving their impressive goalie no chance. Emma was up front in the second half and found lots of space around the penalty spot. There were a few chances but nothing would go in on the right side of the post but she kept going. We sat back a bit and were tiring and this allowed Craigclowan to equalize with just a few minutes remaining. Ruby played in goal and made quite a few saves to keep out Craigclowan from taking the lead again. With just seconds remaining in a tight contest, Rose picked the ball up superbly and fed it to Josephine who fed Georgia and she had the composure to slot it into the back of the net to win the game. It would be tricky to pick an overall player of the match as it was a great team performance with everyone showing excellent spirit and sportsmanship; however, Josephine showed some great skill and had to cover a large area of the pitch in her role.

      Cargilfield 3rds 3    Craigclowan 2

      In beautiful sunshine, the 3rd Girls’ Hockey Team played in an exciting end to end game with evenly matched teams.Having gone one nil down the girls showed great determination and resilience to come back and play some excellent hockey. Josephine was strong in midfield and linked the defense up well with the attack. Up front, Georgia capitalizedon a rebound from Josephine’s shot to get us back level. At the back, Charlotte was composed under pressure andmade sensible choices with her passing from deep. Bethany in the first half supported her well until her move into left midfield for the second where she battled hard against their superb right winger. Having had an impressive first half up front, Matilda was tremendous in defense in the second half and cleared the ball without hesitation when there was danger. Rose found a lot of space in midfield and made some great reverse pickups from the balls out of defense. She played a part in the second goal with a pass out to Josephine who struck high into the net giving their impressive goalie no chance. Emma was up front in the second half and found lots of space around the penalty spot. There were a few chances but nothing would go in on the right side of the post but she kept going. We sat back a bit and were tiring and this allowed Craigclowan to equalize with just a few minutes remaining. Ruby played in goal and made quite a few saves to keep out Craigclowan from taking the lead again. With just seconds remaining in a tight contest, Rose picked the ball up superbly and fed it to Josephine who fed Georgia and she had the composure to slot it into the back of the net to win the game. It would be tricky to pick an overall player of the match as it was a great team performance with everyone showing excellent spirit and sportsmanship; however, Josephine showed some great skill and had to cover a large area of the pitch in her role.

      The children in Forms 4 & 5 will have the opportunity to learn about mindfulness this year. They will follow the Paws b programme designed by MiSP (Mindfulness in Schools Project).

      The programme runs for twelve lessons and we have split this into two units of six.

      One focus of the course is to teach the children about four specific parts of the brain; the prefrontal cortex, the hippocampus, the amygdala and the insula. 

      The course also gives the children strategies for improving focus, concentration, decision making and resilience. All whilst helping them to notice the world around them and encouraging to be active thinkers.

      Paws b is a great opportunity for the children to explore the way they think and learn, setting them up for all the adventures that life at Cargilfield brings.

      16 boys from the U11 boys rugby squad enjoyed a competitive and action-packed afternoon of rugby matches at Merchiston last Wednesday. We played some good rugby with many of the boys impressing with their skills and fitness. So early in the season there is plenty to work on, with particular attention needed on alignment and organisation in both attack and defence. 

      It was great to see the boys enjoying themselves and encouraging each other on the pitch. This promises to be an exciting season for the whole squad.

      Our first preacher for the new school year was Hugh Ouston, the Warden of Glenalmond College. With four of last year’s leavers making their own fresh starts at Glenalmond, Mr Ouston talked to us about the opening chapter of Cider with Rosie by Laurie Lee and described to us what it felt to be like a three year old, lifted from a carrier’s cart and planted down into an overgrown garden that appeared like a jungle with “knife-edged wicked green grass thick as a forest” and “grasshoppers that chirped and chattered and leapt through the air like monkeys”.  Lots of us are facing being new this term, and facing new challenges......

      What happened to three year old Laurie? He burst into tears as “alone in a world whose behaviour I could neither predict nor fathom…the sun hit me smartly on the face like a bully”. He was quickly scooped up by attentive older sisters and comforted with blackcurrants.  Whatever the fear of the unknown this year and going forward, I hope that you will find plenty of older brothers and sisters at hand.

      introTextHow to support children in their learning
      image/cms/resources/img1467.jpg
      imageAltCargilfield
      leftColBody

      Active learning is a concept which is widely applied in education and one which many of us here at Cargilfield embrace.  It is a pedagogy that essentially has the child at the centre of the learning.  

      Active learning focuses more on how children learn and not just on what they learn.

      Through active learning children are encouraged to apply their own thinking rather than to passively absorb the information which is shared with them.  Research over many years has shown us that understanding is not transferred to children simply by telling them what they need to know.  Instead, the engagement with the given task, on a number of levels, makes sure that the child’s thinking is challenged and ensures that it is robust as they build upon previous learning.  

      Active learning empowers children to engage in their own learning; building their knowledge and understanding as they respond to learning opportunities provided by their teacher.  Essentially, it is based on the concept of ‘constructivism’which focuses on the fact that learners build or constructtheir own understanding through applying and experimenting with the concepts they are trying to understand.  

      Learning is therefore, seen as a process of ‘making meaning’.  Children are able to develop their existing knowledge and understanding to achieve a deeper level of understanding as they learn.  This, as a result, empowers them to apply the higher order skills of Blooms Taxonomysuch as analysing, evaluating and synthesising ideas to their own learning.

      The role of the teacher, therefore, is to provide contexts and opportunities for this to take place; enabling deeper levels of understanding, curiosity and engagement.  Constructivism maintains that learning primarily happens through social interaction with others.  A theory which is vigorously embraced through active learning here at Cargilfield!

      Lev Vygotsky, possibly the most famous constructivist, developed the idea of the ‘Zone of Proximal Development’.  This ‘zone’ lies between what the learner can achieve independently and what they can achieve when supported by their teacher’s expert guidance.  As skilled teachers, we focus on learning activities within ‘the zone’.  The teacher can scaffold each child’s learning by providing guidance and support that challenges the child based on their current ability which then allows them to develop their understanding gradually; ensuring that each increment in learning is built on solid foundations.  

      Skilled teachers also provide meaningful feedback. This is ultimately based upon the concept of ‘Assessment is for Learning’ which ensures two things; firstly that each child is aware of their current strengths and weaknesses and secondly that they know what to do to help them improve.  It is important to remember, however, that learning experiences for children are developmental and that learning should be appropriate to their level of development.  This is often linked to their age although not always the same.

      rightColBody

      Active learning helps children become lifelong learners, encourages them to be successful and provides engaging and exciting learning opportunities for them to participate in each day.  

      There are some key questions which we, as teachers, keep in mind when engaging with active learning;

      - What do the children in my class need to learn?

      - How will the task that I have chosen help the children to learn?

      - How am I using questioning as part of the learning?

      - Am I creating a positive classroom environment where it’s fine to take intellectual risks?

      - How will I know that the children are learning?

      It is critical when we do our long, medium and weekly planning that we consider; how will we engage with active learning to ensure that the child and the learning are at the centre of the process.  It is important to remember, therefore, that tasks can be relatively simple but still get the children to think critically and independently.  Likewise, a complicated task does not always help to develop a child’s thinking or understanding. This is crucial to consider and something which we embed in the planning process here at Cargilfield.

      The key idea for us, as teachers, to remember is; that children must be empowered to think and engageduring their time at school and not just be passive recipients of an increasing bank of knowledge.

      Active learning is a concept which is widely applied in education and one which many of us here at Cargilfield embrace.  It is a pedagogy that essentially has the child at the centre of the learning.  

      Active learning focuses more on how children learn and not just on what they learn.

      Through active learning children are encouraged to apply their own thinking rather than to passively absorb the information which is shared with them.  Research over many years has shown us that understanding is not transferred to children simply by telling them what they need to know.  Instead, the engagement with the given task, on a number of levels, makes sure that the child’s thinking is challenged and ensures that it is robust as they build upon previous learning.  

      Active learning empowers children to engage in their own learning; building their knowledge and understanding as they respond to learning opportunities provided by their teacher.  Essentially, it is based on the concept of ‘constructivism’which focuses on the fact that learners build or constructtheir own understanding through applying and experimenting with the concepts they are trying to understand.  

      Learning is therefore, seen as a process of ‘making meaning’.  Children are able to develop their existing knowledge and understanding to achieve a deeper level of understanding as they learn.  This, as a result, empowers them to apply the higher order skills of Blooms Taxonomysuch as analysing, evaluating and synthesising ideas to their own learning.

      The role of the teacher, therefore, is to provide contexts and opportunities for this to take place; enabling deeper levels of understanding, curiosity and engagement.  Constructivism maintains that learning primarily happens through social interaction with others.  A theory which is vigorously embraced through active learning here at Cargilfield!

      Lev Vygotsky, possibly the most famous constructivist, developed the idea of the ‘Zone of Proximal Development’.  This ‘zone’ lies between what the learner can achieve independently and what they can achieve when supported by their teacher’s expert guidance.  As skilled teachers, we focus on learning activities within ‘the zone’.  The teacher can scaffold each child’s learning by providing guidance and support that challenges the child based on their current ability which then allows them to develop their understanding gradually; ensuring that each increment in learning is built on solid foundations.  

      Skilled teachers also provide meaningful feedback. This is ultimately based upon the concept of ‘Assessment is for Learning’ which ensures two things; firstly that each child is aware of their current strengths and weaknesses and secondly that they know what to do to help them improve.  It is important to remember, however, that learning experiences for children are developmental and that learning should be appropriate to their level of development.  This is often linked to their age although not always the same.

      Active learning helps children become lifelong learners, encourages them to be successful and provides engaging and exciting learning opportunities for them to participate in each day.  

      There are some key questions which we, as teachers, keep in mind when engaging with active learning;

      - What do the children in my class need to learn?

      - How will the task that I have chosen help the children to learn?

      - How am I using questioning as part of the learning?

      - Am I creating a positive classroom environment where it’s fine to take intellectual risks?

      - How will I know that the children are learning?

      It is critical when we do our long, medium and weekly planning that we consider; how will we engage with active learning to ensure that the child and the learning are at the centre of the process.  It is important to remember, therefore, that tasks can be relatively simple but still get the children to think critically and independently.  Likewise, a complicated task does not always help to develop a child’s thinking or understanding. This is crucial to consider and something which we embed in the planning process here at Cargilfield.

      The key idea for us, as teachers, to remember is; that children must be empowered to think and engageduring their time at school and not just be passive recipients of an increasing bank of knowledge.

      Form 4 times table club at break times is very popular and has restarted this term with lots of very keen Mathematicians using the iPads to work at their tables.  There is also hot chocolate and a kit kat which might be something to do with why there are so many in attendance!

      1stXV at the Merchiston Festival

      After a long summer holiday, the Merchiston Festival is the perfect beginning of term festival to blow away the cobwebs and begin to formulate plans as to how we want to play this season as a team, and to try out different combinations to get the most out of the players we have.

      To be honest, I have been quite excited throughout the whole summer, thinking about the possibilities that this season might hold. We have some strong, athletic forwards and fast backs who possess real skill with the ball in hand, are aggressive in the tackle and who also possess outstanding ‘jackling’ skills to turnover ball and turn defence in to attack.  We saw a lot of this on show today, and playing 5 x 10 minute matches over the course of the afternoon, we saw the huge amount of potential that this group of boys have.  Yes, we scored lots of outstanding tries with deft handling, superb off loading, aggressive fast rucking and we also ran some terrific lines in the backs, but what impressed me most of all was the fact that we did not concede any tries all afternoon.  Our defence was watertight, we communicated well in the backs and there was a real ‘thou shalt not pass’ attitude as tackles we put in, we turned over the ball and ran from deep to score again.

      It was a delight to watch.  There are going to be some real humdinger matches when we play Sedbergh and Aysgarth home and away later in the term, but we have set out how we want to play, and the teamwork and sense of teamship on show bodes well for the challenges which lie ahead.  It should be fun!

      Well played, boys! We now look forward to our first proper match against Fettes, at home.

      An addendum…..I was hugely impressed with the sportsmanship we showed too.  Against Loretto, a few of their boys got injured when trying to tackle, and you checked up on how they were afterwards which was lovely.  Also, when the referee awarded us a try, you told him that in fact it had been dropped so should not have been a try.  Sportsmanship at its best, and just how it should be.  We play very hard, but also very fair.

      As we embark on yet another exciting academic year at Cargilfield, one of the first tasks I undertake is to scrutinise the school calendar and ensure that I am planning ahead for the busy new term!  I am always struck by the myriad of opportunities afforded to our pupils and by the variety of learning experiences we provide for them, in line with our school ethos is ‘learning is an everyday adventure’.

      It is a privilege therefore, as a teacher of the Humanities subjects to be able to make the most of the outdoor classroom whether locally or further afield. So many school pupils nowadays are deprived of the chance to learn outside of the traditional classroom setting for reasons such as cost, lack of curriculum time or worries about safety. 

      IMG 3798


      As a geography specialist I can only be thankful that at Cargilfield, we are encouraged to widen the horizons of our pupils and their experiences of the environment in ‘real time’. Fieldwork is an essential component of geography education enabling the pupils to develop subject knowledge and gain a range of skills that are difficult to develop in the classroom alone. Being outside, in different habitats offers exciting challenges that many students may not otherwise experience. 

      There are many social benefits for the pupils who gain a great deal from the time spent working together in different environments. The sensory nature of being in the field can’t be replicated in a classroom setting and the scale and beauty of our surroundings are best appreciated by being immersed completely. How better to appreciate the awe and wonder of our landscape than to go and see it for yourself.

      Geography without fieldwork has been described as being like science without experiments. Thankfully, this year once again, our pupils will be out and about not only in Humanities subjects but in all curriculum areas where their love of learning with be further ignited and their skills enhanced.

      Today the in the nursery we picked some of our carrots from the garden.  We were very surprised when we washed them to see they were purple.  When we cut them up we noticed they were still orange in the middle.  We are looking forward to tasting them later.  Isn’t nature a marvellous thing!

      Today some of the Nursery children made flap jack for their afternoon snack. They used scales to measure the correct ingredients and decided what ingredients they needed all by themselves. They worked together to take turns in weighing and mixing. Of course, the best thing about baking is tasting it afterwards.....It was very very yummy!

      Today is 80 years since the start of World War 2. We remember those who fought and died for freedom, especially the 63 old boys and masters from Cargilfield whose names appear on our War Memorial in Chapel.

      For seven years (1939-1946), Cargilfield children were evacuated from Cramond and moved up to Lawers House up near Comrie in Perthshire; in March 2020, we shall be remembering this time in the school's history with a musical event up at Lawers.

      Cargilfield’s first boarding weekend of the year is designed for the Year 8 children who are at the beginning of their significant and special final year of Prep School. The year will present important challenges and opportunities for the children and the weekend is a great way to help prepare and guide the children. We try to balance the weekend with fun and meaningful, useful activities. There were mock-interviews, group games, treasure hunts as well as scenario discussions, when we discussed fictional scenarios based on the sort of incidents that may arise at this sensitive stage in their lives. 

      All the staff commented on the enthusiasm and willing contribution offered by the children and they should all be congratulated on leaving such a strong and positive impression. It was great to see the children take ownership of the school and to bond as a group. The weekend ended with a service in chapel where, in only ten months’ time, we will gather again to celebrate the successes and achievements that this terrific group of children will inevitably gain. 

      The Autumn Term has started with a bang!
