Hello, my name is Mrs Cooper and I have the pleasure of teaching Nursery 1 while Mrs Hay has a very important job to do and a well deserved rest!
I have been overwhelmed by how welcoming everyone has been here!
It is an absolute delight to come to school and a privilege to work with such lovely children, staff and parents.
Our Nursery page will be updated regularly to share lots of happy, learning time in the classroom. This is a great opportunity for you and your child to chat through the learning week and share the different experiences together.
Thank you for your continued support

Christmas party time!
The children had such a fun Christmas party! Lots of dancing, eating, party games, plus a special visit from Santa!
What a fantastic end to an amazing first term at Westerhope Nursery.
Happy Christmas everyone!
The count down to Christmas!
In Nursery we have been full of Christmas busy ... from Christmas card writing, building sparkly play dough snowmen, preparing Christmas dinner in the home corner then enjoying a nice, relaxing book by the fireplace to sledge building! Wow! We certainly have a fun packed learning time in Nursery, that's for sure!
Our Teddy Bear Fundraising Day!
Our teddy bear fundraising day was an amazing success! The children had a fantastic morning of teddy bear cake decorating, making teddy bear sandwiches and playing and learning in our teddy bear themed nursery. At 2pm we opened our Nursery doors to welcome all of the children's wonderful grown ups. I was simply overwhelmed with just how many of our grown ups came to join in with the teddy bear fun! The afternoon was jam packed with a teddy bear hunt, followed by a tasty picnic and lots of cake eating! It was such a lovely, happy atmosphere in Nursery and will definitely be a special day to remember.
The fundraising day was in aid of my beautiful four year old niece, Nicole, who has recently been diagnosed with Batten Disease, which is an extremely rare, fatal neurodegenerative condition for which there is currently no cure, and limits Nicole's precious life. My sister and her husband have found incredible strength from somewhere and are the inspirational driving force in making everyday full of happiness for Nicole and to continue making special family memories. It has been so touching to know that my lovely nursery children, parents/grandparents have been a part of this fundraising journey - a day to be treasured. Your generosity, kindness and caring thoughts have been truly touching so thank you.
Our total funds raised on our teddy bear day came to an unbelievable £225! Wow! Such an overwhelming amount. Words can't express our thanks and appreciation.

Our local educational trip to Westerhope village post office school trip
The children had a fantastic trip to our local post office!
On arrival at the post office, the children were all prepared with their stamp money and Santa Claus letter and paid for their stamp at the counter. They then excitedly posted their wish list in to the post box all ready for the onward journey to Reindeer Land!
The children represented Westerhope Primary school exceptionally well on our trip making me one very proud teacher!
A big thank you for all of our adult helpers on the trip. The support was fantastic and you made the trip happen so thank you.
