Uxbridge March News: Ducklings, Rainbows and Sensory Experiences

The Old Station Nursery Group - Creating Brighter Futures Together

Welcome all to our March newsletter! What a busy month we have had, filled with lots of national events and fantastic learning opportunities.

March news

This month in Bunnies, the children have been exploring new creative ways of learning through play. We have been encouraging the children to take part in activities and events to celebrate Mother’s Day, to show love and appreciation by making little gifts.

The children also celebrated St Patrick’s Day on the 17th March through sensory experiences as well as St David’s Day at the beginning of the month, by exploring colours and flowers associated with Wales. The children have already started to explore  Easter crafts and activities, which will continue throughout April. Next week, the children will celebrate Holi, on the 29th March. The children will be celebrating and exploring a rainbow of colours through messy fun activities.

The babies have engaged in a number of activities to enhance their learning and understanding of these many events throughout March. We have also supported our new walkers this month, giving them time and praise for their first moments and achievements.

And, of course, the children in Bunnies couldn’t be left out of the eggsxciting arrival of the adorable little ducklings hatching. The babies have watched the little ducklings take their first steps and make their first sounds as they are born into a new world!

This month, the toddlers have really enjoyed taking the time to explore the sensory room, spending quality time together in small groups, expanding their vocabulary and talking about texture, colour and sound.

The children have also enjoyed celebrating St Patrick’s Day this month, making small rainbows and hoping for a pot of gold! They listened to Ed Sheeran, made some cupcakes and enjoyed some Irish stew!

Last but not least, the beautiful baby ducklings are bringing so much joy to the children! The children will be giving them lots of cuddles next week. Make sure to keep up to date with moments on Parent Zone as well as our social media posts.

Throughout March, the children in Preschool have been super excited to get duck eggs from Incredible Eggs. This week, they have been able to watch them hatch and see the ducks being born. This has fascinated the children and it has been incredible to watch.

They have also loved exploring the new sensory room as well as celebrating lots of national events. The children took part in a number of activities to learn about the meaning of St David’s Day, St Patrick’s Day and Red Nose Day. Next week, the children will be learning about Holi, the festival of colour.

What’s coming up in April

We have lots to look forward to next month!

In April, we are looking forward to the weather becoming a bit warmer! We hope to take advantage of this and enjoy some picnics outside and walks to the river.

Next month, we are also looking forward to celebrating Easter through a number of different Easter themed activities. There will be lots of egg hunts, baking and colourful Easter artwork!

Please can we ask that as the weather gets warmer, children have the appropriate clothing.
