Class Teacher – Mrs Moscardini
Hello I’m Mrs Moscardini and I have worked at Thornhill for a long time – I love it here. Being a teacher at our school is the best job in the world. I enjoy watching our children grow and learn new things and I always feel very proud of them.
I have a little girl called Eden who keeps me very busy outside of school and a naughty dog called Charlie. Eden and Charlie love to cause mischief together! I love reading, especially the Harry Potter books, going for walks at the beach and taking Eden swimming.

Welcome to our Year 1 webpage
We hope that you find the information here useful! If you require any more information, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
The following information is about our class routines:
In Year One we will continue to develop your child’s reading skills. Your child will have a daily session in small, adult led groups where they will take part in various activities to further develop their reading skills. They will be heard read individually and as part of a guided reading group several times a week. Your child’s reading book will be changed at least twice a week. Please support us in developing your child’s reading skills by listening to them read every night for 10 minutes. Could we please ask that you write a little comment in their reading diary so that we know your child has read at home.
At home please continue to use your child’s sound book and practise the sounds they have learnt. All of the Year One children will sit a phonics screening check in May and more information about this check will follow. However, extra practise of sounds and reading words will really help your child to prepare for this national check. Learning to read and spell tricky words is another important aspect of our phonics work. Once your child can read the tricky words (as whole words) they can practise writing them out.
Year One start spellings after Christmas. Spellings are sent out in planners on a Tuesday, ready for the test the following Monday.
Children will need an indoor PE kit (red shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls) and an outdoor kit (tracksuit bottoms and top and outdoor trainers) labelled with their name. Kits can be left at school over the half term.
