Base 1

Welcome to Base 1’s page.

My name is Miss Sankar and I am Base 1’s Class Teacher. Working alongside me is Teaching Assistant Miss McGarry.

On this page we will be putting lots of information about all the exciting things we will be doing in our class throughout the year.

P.E kits should be sent in on Monday, as our P.E slots are Monday and Friday.

Homework is sent home on a Friday and should be returned completed no later than Wednesday. Friday Journals should also be returned by Wednesday preferably with a comment.

Each child has a reading diary to be used at home and school. When read with at home please ensure that the reading diary is signed as we have a reading at home reward scheme in place that rewards children that have read at least four times a week.

Please feel free to speak to any member of the Base 1 team with any queries you may have.


  • P.E kits need to be brought in on Monday ready for P.E on Friday.
  • Book bags need to be brought in daily.
  • Please keep signing reading diaries, as we are still taking part in the reading at home reward scheme.
  • Please ensure Friday Journals are signed preferably with a comment.
