The Orchard

Welcome to our fantastic new classroom The Orchard here in St. Clare’s N.S. where we have 4 very special children. Thanks to Ms Mc Daid, Barbara and Nicole we learn lots of new things and get to have lots of wonderful experiences.
Checkout below what we’ve gotten up to so far this school year.

The fire Brigade came to visit all the junior infants on the 17th October. Daniel dressed up as a fire fighter and got to spray the hose! Natalia took her teddies out to see the fire engine.

We love going to the sensory room every day. We blow bubbles, play with the sand and water and sometimes we just relax in the tent. Here’s Ben blowing a huge bubble!

On the 4th of October, Mr. McCartin invited the boys and girls from the Orchard to his office for a chocolate bun party! We listened to music and relaxed with Mr. McCartin, Barbara, Nicole and Ms. McDaid. We are looking forward to our next trip to the office already!



We love our morning walks from the Orchard. Sometimes, we go on a bear hunt and find lots of little bears hiding in trees and in the grass. Other times we search for things, like acorns, chestnuts and orange leaves. One of our favourite things to do is to throw conkers and stones into the water.
