Hello and welcome to Year 1's class page! Myself, Mrs Hughes and Miss Hargreaves 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 fifth year teaching at Armley Park and I love being part of the Armley team. 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. 

Weeks 1 and 2

Library time! Each Friday we are lucky enough to visit our brand new library. We enjoyed listening to Miss Benson read a story and even some of us got to sit on the comfy new bean bags! 

Practical maths lessons! In the first few weeks we have been busy starting our maths lessons. We have done some practical lessons and some activities in our books. Here are some pictures of us sorting shapes into different groups, as well as us representing numbers using objects. 

Writing -

in Writing, we have begun looking at the story and story map of Paddington travelling around the United Kingdom. We have been making up our Talk for Writing actions and practising them each day! We have been building and writing sentences about what Paddington has been up to, as well as using role play to re-tell the story!

Art and Geography - Van Goghs starry night and labelling the countries of the UK
