Since September 2014, learning a language in KS2 has been a compulsory part of the curriculum. At The Berkeley, children learn French through speaking, listening, reading and writing. Children learn a range of topics including greetings, food, family, directions and many more! We are lucky to have Madame Leydon, a specialist French teacher, teaching Year 6 on a Friday morning and Year 4 on a Friday afternoon. Year 3 and year 5 are taught French throughout the week by their class teacher. 


French is assessed on 4 areas, Writing, Reading, Speaking and Listening. All children are given termly feedback based upon all 4 aspects of the Curriculum and given a next step to help them identify their area for improvement.
