Armley Park Primary School

Year 2

Welcome to the Year 2 Class Page!


Class Teacher: Miss Benson

Support Staff: Mrs Hughes

Hello, my name is Miss Benson and I will be teaching in year 2 this year. I am eager and excited to begin a year of learning and fun together! This is my second year teaching at Armley Park as I worked in year 1 last year. I am really enjoying getting to know you all and working as part of the Armley Park team. I grew up in Blackpool but have loved living in Leeds for the last 5 years. A few of the things that I enjoy the most are baking, shopping and cuddling my dogs! 


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 and I will do my best to help.

What are we learning about this year?

Week 3
In Art this week, year 1 and 2 have been looking at Andy Goldsworthy and his natural sculptures. To begin our project, the children used the skill of observational drawing to draw natural objects from the playground. The children used a variety of different sketching pencils and we discussed how shading can be used to create

Week 2
Year 2 started the week by following instructions to make their own marmalade sandwiches for Paddington! As you can see, the children worked so well collaboratively to follow the instructions correctly. The children then worked hard to identify and use time conjunctions and bossy verbs to write their own instructions.
Week 1
Myself, Miss Avison and Mrs Hughes have loved having the children back in school. It was so lovely to see so many smiling faces walking through the door on Tuesday morning! They have all been so excited to learn and to see their friends. The children have been settling in well and have been very busy starting our new topic 'Countries of the UK'. We have welcomed Paddington bear and his suitcase into our classroom which the children have loved!
