Hello and welcome to Year 1's class page! Myself and Mrs Hughes are so excited for a year of engaging and fun learning! I am Miss Benson. I was born in Blackpool but have always taught here in Leeds. This is my third year teaching at Armley Park and I love being part of the Armley team. I enjoy shopping, being outdoors and visiting my dog Bear! I am looking forward to meeting my new class this year and learning all about their interests.  


We hope you enjoy looking at our class page. We will update this regularly throughout the year with photographs of what we have been doing and also with key information which you may find useful. If you have any questions, please contact me on the year group email [email protected] and I will do my best to help. 

Autumn 1 Curriculum Overview!

Week 2  - 13/9/21
We have had another busy week in year 1! 
In Maths, we have been sorting objects into groups. The children impressed me with their independence and ability to recognise the different ways of putting the objects into groups. 

In Phonics, we have learnt/recapped the following sounds! The children have enjoyed using the sounds in CVC words and sentences. We also looked at 'Phonics Play' online and practised sorting the words into real and nonsense words! The children loved independently accessing this in the provision. 

Here are some pictures of our children accessing the provision really nicely! I have been proud of how well the children have worked on using their indoor voices this week, sharing with their friends and independently having a go at challenges. 

Week 1 - 7/9/21
Year 1 have had a fun week getting used to their new environment. They have enjoyed exploring the new areas and resources, We have learnt phonics, practiced reading, writing and making numbers to 10. We have focused on the new routines that come with being in year 1 and the children have loved playing in the big playground at playtimes! I am proud of how well the children have settled in.
