This week Nursery took inspiration from the Big Bird Watch to support their learning. They have made their own bird feeders, used a tally chart to identify different birds, used 2D shapes to create their very own bird, made an alternative bird nest and created many bird crafts.

Have a lovely weekend!

Brain Breaks

When I was asked to write something for the website, I couldn’t quite decide what to say. I made some notes, chatted with colleagues, checked the internet, had a snack did a bit of ironing and then came up with my subject after reflecting on my own behaviour – Brain Breaks!

Research has shown that Brain Breaks increase pupils’ on-task behaviour and the amount of physical activity they get every day so it's a win-win. Brain Breaks are short, energising bursts of activity that boost blood flow, send oxygen to the brain, and help children to retain information better. Instant, simple activities to help kids re-energise, refocus and give their brains a buzz. These Brain Breaks are what your children need at the moment, particularly working online at home in lockdown which can leave some children sitting for hours at a time. Movement is important for children, especially now. It is not always realistic for our school to add in more time for break or extra P.E. but we can easily add Brain Breaks throughout the day and you can do this at home.

It can be as simple as taking five minutes to stand up, stretch, and run in place next to the desk. Previous schools I have taught in liked the boarders in particular to walk to the perimeter of the grounds of the school before lessons each day or all children to run to the perimeter and back between lessons. Ideally multiple Brain Breaks should be taken in the day along with playtime and PE lessons.

Being seated for long periods of time has drawbacks for children. Not only does it make it tough for them to get enough physical activity in the day, but it also makes it harder to actually pay attention and learn. Angela Hanscom, a paediatric occupational therapist, wrote in the Washington Post: Children naturally start fidgeting in order to get the movement their body so desperately needs and is not getting enough of to ‘turn their brain on’. What happens when the children start fidgeting? We teachers usually ask them to sit still and pay attention; therefore, their brain goes back to ‘sleep mode’. In order for children to learn, they need to be able to pay attention. In order to pay attention, we need to let them move! Some children with specific attention issues have squeezy toys to fiddle with as they listen. Some are encouraged to doodle as they listen to a lesson which helps them focus, even if to us it looks as if they are completely tuned out.

Movement actually does ‘turn on’ the brain. Look how activity can literally light up areas of a child’s brain that allow for better learning

With children learning at home, it’s important to build time into schedules for focused educational brain breaks. Maybe they need a movement break to get the wiggles out? Or a quiet moment to just stay still? Research shows that giving children frequent brain breaks to reset their energy level improves their ability to focus, retain more, and stay on task. Drinks, snacks, pencil sharpening, trips to the loo, hunting for paper tissues etc were used constantly in rotation when my son was doing his homework each night but he needed these brain breaks. As an undergraduate when he was studying for Finals, he did an hour of study followed by an hour of break! It took forever but he passed with flying colours – this worked for him, excessive, time consuming, but successful!

Below are some activities that can be done alone or with someone else which will enhance a working day at home or in the classroom. 

• Have the children stand tall and cross one leg in front of the other while pressing the outsides of their feet together. Now have them cross their arms over one another at the wrists. Clasp their hands and curl their arms into their chest. Take a few breaths, uncross and cross the opposite way for a few more breaths. 

• Touch their left elbow to their right knee, then touch their right elbow to their left knee. Switch back and forth going slowly at first, building speed until they are going at a vigorous pace. Next, do some windmills by standing tall with their feet shoulder-width apart and their arms stretched out. Bend at the waist and touch their right hand to their left toes, then their left hand to their right toes. Switch back and forth.

• Sitting in a chair with your feet on the ground and legs together, curl your body and legs into your lap, folding yourself into a tiny O shape. Next, open your arms and legs wide, forming an X shape with your body. Pull back into an O shape, then back out to an X shape. Repeat three times. 

• Stand or sit with legs and feet together. Bring your palms together in front of your chest. Keep your fingertips together as you pull your palms apart, forming a ball with your fingers. Press your fingertips together until you feel the muscles in your hands and arms activating. See if you feel your core tighten too. Now close your eyes and as you breathe in, inflate your ball and as you breathe out, flatten the ball by pushing your palms together. (Then repeat these instructions for 60 seconds).

• Touch their left ear with their right hand and at the same time touch their nose with their left hand. Then have them switch their hands and touch their right ear with their left hand and their nose with their right hand. Switch back and forth a few times. Then have them close their eyes, take a deep breath, and blow it all out.

• It’s never a good idea to spend too much time sitting in one position. Allow children to take a break and bring some flexibility back into their spines. Have them stand with their feet shoulder-distance apart. Put their left hand on their hip and raise their right hand overhead. Lean to the left and stretch their arm as far as they can to the left. Repeat on the right side. Then stand tall and slowly roll down one vertebrae at a time until their hands reach the floor (or at least their shins). Have them take a deep breath then slowly roll back up. Repeat as necessary.

• Sometimes children just need to bounce their energy out. Have them pretend they are bouncing on a mini-trampoline (this will keep their movement on a vertical plane instead of all over the room) and give them a couple of minutes to let loose!

• Conjure up a rainstorm! Sitting or standing at a desk or table, have your child tap 1 finger on the desk, then 2, then 3, then 4, then their whole hand until you all feel like you’re in the middle of a deluge. Work your way backward from 5 down to 1 as the storm 

• Get hearts pumping with a quick sequence of exercises. Call out 5 actions for your child to do as quickly as they can. For instance, 5 jumping jacks, 4 pushups, 3 situps, 2 squat jumps, and 1 tree pose. 

• Have your children line up next to a wall and place one hand on the wall. Tell them to plant the foot closest to the wall and swing the other leg, as if pushing off the ground on a skateboard. Start slowly, with tiny swings, moving up to power pushes. Repeat on the other side.

• This is a good break when you sense a weariness in the air. Have the children rub their hands together vigorously until they warm up. Tell them to close their eyes and mind and refocus. 

• Music is a great way to reset the mood in a room and raise the energy level. Put on a fun song and have a 30-second freestyle dance party. Maybe teach your children the steps to popular dances such as the Cha-Cha Slide or the Macarena. My class enjoyed crazy dancing to Crazy Frog last year. 

I hope this has given you some food for thought and you will try some of these activities while the children are with you learning at home. I always thought these breaks were time-wasting and based on avoidance, but the children actually gain so much more when they come back to a task with fresh eyes and with fresh air in their lungs.

In Maths, Form 5 have been creating their very own shop. They have been researching prices of goods and adding discounts using percentages. There were some great offers on in the shops too with some bargains to be had! Different ways of paying was also investigated such Apple Pay, Visa and Mastercard. American Express wasn't an option unfortunately!

Good morning, everyone. Today, 256 years ago, Wollfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria, perhaps the most talented composer who every lived. He was born in to a musical family and was the youngest of seven siblings albeit all of them died young apart from his eldest sister. He spent his childhood listening to music and watching his sister have keyboard lessons and reportedly at the age of three, began creating his own tunes. He was a child prodigy and along with his family, he travelled around Europe meeting composers such as Bach and Haydn, both of whom were amazed at his remarkable talent. Mozart wrote countless symphonies, operas and other pieces of music during his short life, but perhaps his greatest achievement was an unfinished final piece called 'The Requiem' which he did not complete before his untimely death at the age of just 35.Have a good day!

Watch the assembly here.

perch_introTextMozart's Birthday!

Good morning, everyone. Today, 256 years ago, Wollfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg, Austria, perhaps the most talented composer who every lived. He was born in to a musical family and was the youngest of seven siblings albeit all of them died young apart from his eldest sister. He spent his childhood listening to music and watching his sister have keyboard lessons and reportedly at the age of three, began creating his own tunes. He was a child prodigy and along with his family, he travelled around Europe meeting composers such as Bach and Haydn, both of whom were amazed at his remarkable talent. Mozart wrote countless symphonies, operas and other pieces of music during his short life, but perhaps his greatest achievement was an unfinished final piece called 'The Requiem' which he did not complete before his untimely death at the age of just 35.Have a good day!

Watch the assembly here.

Despite not being in school and being unable to celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns, Form 8 have made recordings of his poems whilst others have provided some fitting Scottish musical interludes! Hopefully, we shall be able to come together as a community again one day soon and enjoy these special occasions as a school

Benefits of Exercise

At Cargilfield we are lucky; we get outside every day, come rain or shine and enjoy hours and hours of exercise.  Not all children are as lucky as ours, and every once in a while, when the weather is perhaps not the best, or energy levels are low, we can be reluctant to exercise.  Taking a few moments to remember the benefits of regular exercise will hopefully be enough to rejuvenate us, and make us appreciate how fantastic it is to be able to exercise.

Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.  It helps us both physically and mentally and is an extremely social and fun way to spend your time.  With the various restrictions we are facing with COVID, it is even more important to exercise.  

Some of the benefits of regular exercise include:

  •    Making you feel happier – exercise has been shown to improve your mood and decrease feelings of depression, anxiety and stress.  Exercise can increase the production of endorphins which are known to help produce positive feelings and reduce the perception of pain.
  •    It can help maintain a healthy weight – exercise is crucial to supporting a fast metabolism and burning more calories per day.  It also helps you maintain your muscle mass and weight loss.
  •    It can increase your energy levels – engaging in regular physical activity can be a real energy booster and help with fatigue.
  •        It can reduce your risk of chronic disease – lack of regular physical activity is a primary cause of chronic disease.  Regular exercise has been shown to improve a number of diseases.
  •        It can help your brain health and memory – exercise increases your heart rate which promotes the flow of blood and oxygen to your brain.  
  •        It can help with relaxation and sleep quality – regular exercise can help you sleep better and feel more energised during the day
  •        It can reduce pain – it can help relieve chronic pain and also raise pain tolerance and decrease pain perception
  •        It boosts your mood and wellbeing
  •        It keeps your heart healthy

Exercise offers huge benefits and possibly the most important one, gives an outlet to meet new people and make new friends.  It is one of the few things we can do at the moment so why not try and get out, go for a run or find a space to do some exercise safely in the house.

Today, we celebrate the birthday of Robert Burns. In different times, we should be celebrating the life of our great Scottish Bard as a school; but one day soon, we shall come together again and enjoy these special times as a community.

In the meantime, sit back and enjoy hearing the tale of Tam o' Shanter, recited by a few familiar faces!

Good morning and welcome to our first mini concert of the Spring Term. Well done to all the children who have adapted so well to returning to online music lessons and the music staff have been impressed with all the practising that has been going on at home which means that children's musical progress has continued - keep this up! We have some lovely performances today, and thank you to all the children who have sent in recordings so early in the term. If you would like to appear in next week's concert, please get in touch with Dr Allsop!

Today marks one year since we lost a very dear friend and much admired and missed colleague from our school community here at Cargilfield. Alison Combe left her inimitable mark on generations of children during her long time here, and they all benefitted from her wisdom and her care as she stove to get the very best out of every single child. This morning, the Headmaster reflects back on Alison's time at Cargilfield and the legacy she has left.

Watch the assembly here.

This afternoon, Mr Noone fromHead of Biology at Radley College in Oxfordshire, delivered a fascinating lecture for Form 4 about some of the animals which they keep at the school. We heard some amazing stories about Boa Constrictors, Bearded Dragons and scorpions, and even got to see a rare albino King snake and a Giant Tree gecko. Mr Noone spoke about some of the adaptations of these animals, and how they have to be kept warm using heat lamps. Thank you for a fabulous lecture, which provided real engagement with them children at home!

In P2 this week we have been looking at Scotland and its national flag, animal and flower. The children have been highly creative and have crafted the saltire, the unicorn and the thistle in lots of different ways. Here is a snapshot of their creations for you to enjoy!

Some Tips for Surviving Remote Learning

Your child’s happiness and well-being are at the heart of all that Cargilfield has to offer. If your child is struggling in any way at all during remote learning, please do get in touch straight away; a strong partnership between pupils, parents and teachers has never been more important than at present. 

Your child’s Form Tutor will be the first port of call, and the Support for Learning Department staff are always available to offer help and advice. The children have coped well with the first week of remote lessons but we are all very aware that learning from home is not without its challenges. The advice below may be of some use.

1) Having a dedicated work area (where this is possible, of course) will help your child to remain focused during lessons and to keep their learning resources organised. It will also allow for a separation between work and leisure time.

2) Keeping connected to the Cargilfield community and school routines each day is vital. Watching the daily Chapel services and taking part in the extra-curricular challenges will help your child to continue to feel part of the community. Contact with friends and classmates, both within and outside lessons, will keep their spirits up.

3) Timetables have been configured to allow a two-hour break in the middle of each day. This allows children to take advantage of daylight hours so do encourage them to spend time outdoors getting some fresh air and exercise. It also allows them to take a proper break from their screens and perhaps to eat at the same time as other members of the family.

4) Please do bear in mind that every household and every learner is different; what is achievable for one family may be unrealistic for another and staff are very sympathetic to this.

    The three most important school rules at Cargilfield are: be kind; be kind; be kind. Perhaps during remote learning, we should also add the words: to ourselves.

    Good luck with the challenges that lie ahead and be positive about the new skills and resilience you are learning.

      Good morning, everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

      I wanted to tell you something about pilgrimages today, having seen in the news over the last few days who Lichfield Cathedral in Staffordshire has been opened up as a vaccine centre, and queues of people are making their way to this magnificent building, waiting their turn to be vaccinated. Back in time, cathedrals have always been places where Christian people travelled to and undertook long pilgrimages across many miles to seek out religious buildings to feel closer to God. Watch the video to learn about a few pilgrimages you might undertake during lockdown......St Mary's Cathedral in Edinburgh to Rosslyn Chapel is one which you might have a go at!

      Good morning everyone! Today is the anniversary of the revival of the ballet Swan Lake first staged for the Imperial Ballet on 15 January 1895 with Tchaikovsky's music. It is a ballet about love, doing the right thing, being loyal and true and you can watch some of it in this video. Well done for al that you achieved this week. Have a lovely weekend everyone, and spend some time getting fresh air away from screens.

      Good morning. Today is 91 years to the day since Mickey Mouse appeared in a cartoon strip! Of course, he also appeared in animated cartoons, but when he appeared in newspapers in a cartoon, millions of Americans read about his adventures everyday!As Walt Disney said "All our dreams can come true if we have courage to pursue them." Have a good day!

      Good morning and Happy New Year! It is not the way that we would have wanted to start the Spring Term, but I have been so impressed with the way that the whole Cargilfield community has pulled together and prepared for the start of the new term as we launch #cargilfieldconnected once again.

      This will bring challenges for us all, but being positive and making sure we look out for each other and keep connected will make such a difference over the coming weeks. Try your best and embrace the new learning opportunities that will come your way. Good luck, everyone!

      Remote Learning packs have been hand delivered to homes across Edinburgh and Fife, ready for #cargilfieldconnected to start on Monday!

      We know there will be lots of resilience, resourcefulness and fun on show during these challenging times. We may be apart, but are still together as a community.

      Good luck, everyone!

      We understand that this is not the start of term that we all hoped for, but hopefully it won’t be too long until we are all back together on site at Cargilfield.

      Ahead of Monday, we have created a list of some learning from home tips that will hopefully help you in your return to school.

      1. Set your alarm 
      Try (as much as possible) to wake up at the regular time you would if travelling into school. This will help keep a good routine which is very important for a good sleep, and your overall mental health.

      2. Find a comfortable and suitable learning space.
      Try to differentiate your workspace from where you spend your downtime (e.g not in your bedroom or on the sofa). The learning space should be away from distractions such as the TV, computer, video games, mobile phones etc. This will help you to focus when in this space.

      3. Make sure you are dressed appropriately for live lessons.
      Just as you would in the school environment, but in home clothes.

      4. Make sure you are prepared for lessons.
      Please make sure you have course materials ready for the start of the learning session - this will help your teachers to start their lessons promptly!

      5. Eat away from the learning space. 
      Remember to take breaks away from your learning space, just as you would do in school.
       
      6. Get some fresh air.
      Whether it be a lunchtime cycle or a simple walk around your garden, make sure to take some time away from your learning space to get outdoors and burn off some energy!

      We understand that everyone is different, but we hope some of these tips will come in useful for creating a happy and structured learning from home routine.

      We cannot wait to welcome you back to school on Monday!

      Following on from the First Minister's announcement at the end of last week, preparations are underway for a longer period of remote learning than we first anticipated, up until at least half term.  Many meetings have been taking place over the Christmas holidays and staff are busy in school preparing for the relaunch of #cargilfieldconnected as we aim to continue to offer the high quality education and support to all our children.

      One of the overriding things which came to mind when reflecting on a summer term of remote learning was how much the older children in Pre-Prep had benefitted from the increased opportunities to engage in all types of play. During my daily catch ups on Teams, I was always hearing about and seeing amongst others the latest dens that had been built or the improvements made to the teddies’ accommodation. It was strikingly obvious how the children were enjoying developing ideas, turning them upside down, experimenting with them and often arriving at something amazing and inspiring. However, they were not doing this with any specific outcome in mind but for its own sake and the enjoyment and satisfaction it brought them.

      There is much research evidence which shows that play is at the heart of emotional wellbeing and good mental health. Free play is critical to the balanced development of children and young people. It supports adapting and responding to cultural change and helps to fuel creativity and the capacity to learn. Covid19 has given us all no option but to adapt and while everyone seemed delighted to be coming back to School inevitably it was going to be different and certainly more restrictive.

      In P3 we felt it was important that the children were provided with plenty of opportunities to reconnect with each other in as unrestricted environment as possible. The first morning we put out a range of games and construction equipment including a large quantity of Lego and it was this which the children were drawn to like bees to a honey pot. Soon they were chatting way, catching up with each other while busily playing. We decided to continue with this morning routine of free play until the children were settled back into the usual routine. However, as the days passed, we observed that the children settled much better to more formal work if they had had the opportunity for some free play first, so this became part of the daily routine. As time went on, we observed that the children were basing much of their play around our Roman topic and were using it as an unconscious opportunity to achieve a richer understanding of their learning and to connect the skills and concepts they were learning with real world examples

      rightColBody

      These playful experiences were helping them to engage in this type of deeper learning, applying knowledge to different situations and sparking new ideas not only in the classroom but outside during breaks too where chariot racing and gladiator contests became popular!  Over time we added to the play resources on offer by investing in some Roman figure playmobile, foam builders’ bricks and a big box of Kapla.  Initially these were ignored but with a bit of hands-off encouragement were soon being used to build detailed models of the Circus Maximus, Roman houses, bathhouses, forts, Hadrian’s wall and a range of battle formations. I was constantly being called over to take a photo of the latest creation to put up on the washing line whilst being given in depth and enthusiastic guided tours! 

      Looking back over the role play has played in the children’s learning over the past term it has undoubtably allowed them to be actively engaged in their learning and made it both hands-on and minds-on. They have had the opportunity to be interactive in trying out and revising hypotheses which has encouraged flexible thinking, critical and creative thinking, and perseverance. They have been socially interactive and developed understanding on how to communicate more effectively with others. They have experienced pleasure, enjoyment and joy in achieving. They have had meaningful learning experiences where they have been able to connect new facts and ideas to their own experiences.

      In these uncertain and ever-changing times where remote learning is again a reality the opportunity is there to exploit play opportunities to both the advantage of children and parents. Not all play has to be on a large scale, daydreaming while sitting in a cardboard box or throwing stones into a puddle can provide important benefits to children.  Next time you are witnessing your children at play, have a look and see if you can detect the benefits.  Whether it seems menial, engaging, exciting, irritating or even downright dangerous it probably has an abundance of benefits to be observed.

      After a challenging year, we look forward with hope to 2021. As C.S. Lewis said: “There are far better things ahead than any we leave behind”. Many thanks to the whole Cargilfield community for your support, and Happy Hogmanay!

      Cargilfield Connected

      We can’t welcome you to our grounds right now, but we can offer you a virtual tour and we can answer questions via email or telephone. We especially like to chat face-to-face on a video call.

      We have places available for 2021 entry in most year groups.

      For now, we hope that this video, presented by our Headmaster, Mr Rob Taylor, will give you a flavour of what life is like here at Cargilfield. Our website and social media channels are kept up to date and hold a wealth of information about our school.

      Our Registrar, Fiona Craig is available to contact via email: registrar@cargilfield.com and she will be happy to help you. Thank you
