A Note to our Montessori Class
We miss you all!
Hi Everyone! We miss you all so so SO much ❤
We hope you’re all doing well and having a great time spending time at home and learning and playing at home.
Niamh and Katie thought it would be nice to put together a few activities for you all to have a look at and maybe try out to keep your growing brains busy.
Niamh is spending time playing games with her family, walking her dog in the park (her name is Scruffy 🐶). Katie is spending her time playing board games and going on walks too! We can’t wait to see you all again and hear all about how you’re all spending your time.
Feel free to send us updates on your marvellous matching game, your indoor Catapult launches and some fun updates on how you are. Sending virtual hugs to you all! We will talk again soon.
Niamh and Katie ❤

DIY Treat Catapult
- Big Spoon or Medium Sized Stick
- Masking Tape/ Cellotape (Optional)
- A Range of Spoons
- A Treat of Choice (I used Blueberries)
Step 1: Use your big spoon or medium sized stick as a base.
Step 2: Find the right spoon at the Catapult Basket. I found that my silver spoon was too curved so I could not launch with it. Experiment with different sizes and shapes of spoons to find the best Catapult Basket.
You could stop here, but I found when I launched my berries my wooden spoon would roll.
Step 3: Since my wooden spoon would move after my practice launch, I decided to change my design and use tape to secure it to the table.
Use 2 pieces of tape to do this if you have the same issue.
Step 4: Load up your Catapult and LAUNCH! 💥
You could try launch your treats into somebody else’s mouth. Or take this outside of you have a pet and launch animal friendly treats!
Some Fun Things to Try at Home
Bravery is facing something that makes you a little scared or concerned about. Sometimes being brave means showing those around you that you care. Today, why don’t you be extra brave and a family member everything you love about them!
A RIDDLE FOR YOU ALL!
I come in many different colors, and I get bigger when I’m full. I will float away if you don’t tie me down, and I will make a loud sound if I break.
What am I?
