Nursery 2020-21 Home Learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you are aware schools have closed for 6 weeks due to COVID. Nursery at Beacon is still open, but we know that during this time lots of you are worried and have chosen to keep your child at home.


We have already emailed out the following:

  • A pack of 14 Home learning projects which can be completed during the 6 weeks at home. You could complete 2 or 3 of these each week.
  • Nursery pack with a list of songs, stories, patterns to trace/ copy, maths activities and fine motor activities. Please use the list and pick one of each daily to complete.


As you know in Nursery our curriculum is based around play and we vary rarely use worksheets. Please do not worry about your child’s development or them falling behind. If you are completing the activities above your child will be making progress.


Please read daily stories, play with child and interact with them regularly to develop their language and social skills.

Older children in school will be having a pack and work emailed out to complete, but this does not apply to Nursery.


Below are some fun activities to do at home. The following documents are to be used over the next 6 weeks to support your child’s learning at home:


  • Beacon cooking recipes (14 in total)
  • Making bubbles recipe
  • Some family games to play (7 in total)
  • Recipe to make playdough
  • Rhyme time (some nursery rhymes to learn each day)
  • Salt dough recipe
  • Ten town tracing (0-10) You can practise these numbers in different media such as water with paintbrushes, flour with your finger, felt tips or crayons etc…
  • Scavenger hunts (6 in total one to complete each week)
