FS2 2020 - 2021

Mrs Thomas

Mrs Thomas

I have been a teacher at Ivy Bank for the last 8 years and am the manager of the Early Years Department. I enjoy being part of the wonderful team that we have in EYFS here and am constantly amazed at how the children learn and how much progress can be made at such a young age. I look forward to my journey with your child(ren)!
I enjoy singing, dancing and drama and eating! Due to the previous high number of staff being called Thompson, I am often referred to as Mrs Tom!
If you need to contact me directly, please email me at sthomas@ivybank.cheshire.sch.uk
Please be aware that I will probably not be able to read or check emails during the school day. If your message is urgent, please phone or email the school as usual.

Mr Walker

Mr Walker

I am currently teaching in EYFS2, having previously taught in Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 for a number of years at Ivy Bank School (though I am only 10 and an increasing bit years old!) I love solving Rubik's Cubes and mucking around on computers in my spare time.

Welcome to EYFS2!

We have 2 teachers - Mr. Walker & Mrs Thomas.

We are fortunate to have a number of wonderful teaching assistants to help us - Mrs Amin, Miss Press, Mrs Nesom, Miss Brooks, Mrs Connolly and Mrs Whitehurst.

Our Topic for Summer 1

This half term our topic is: 'Transport and People Who Help Us'  

Those who are isolating have access to Google Classroom via their Wonde card. Please make sure your teacher knows you are isolating.


Reading Books

Please make sure your child's reading books and record are in school every day. We recommend that you read with your child for a short time, every evening.  For 5 reads or more in each week, the children receive 5 merit points and a sticker - they LOVE stickers!

Sight word wallets - please let us know if your child is ready for new sight words to add to their wallet - please ensure these remain in book bags.


Please come to school wearing your PE kit every Tuesday.


  • Homework will feature a piece of work to support an area of your child's learning. These will be set on a Friday and will be due to be completed before the following Thursday.

  • PAWS (Purposeful Activities Without School) - This homework is optional.  Why not choose one of these activities each week to complete?  

  • Phonics Homework - This will be homework relating to what your child has been taught or needs to be consolidated from that week.

  • Intervention homework (for those who are on the programme) is handed out on a Friday and you will have a week to complete it.  Please send the whole pack back into school with your child including the envelope.
