Year 5 describe themselves in French

Tu es grand(e), ..petit(e), taille moyenne (= medium height)?

In MFL lately, the Year 5s have been using vocabulary and phrases to introduce and write about their family members. Grandparents, uncles, aunties and cousins have all been given a mention!

This week they have also been describing themselves and the looks of others, developing their knowledge of the use of colours and sizes vocabulary. In particular, they have been talking about height, eye and hair colour [eg. J’ai les yeux bleus ..J’ai les cheveux longs et noirs]. Most Year 5s found it rather strange that French people refer to the colour or length of their hairs (in the plural) in contrast to English hair (singular), but they were generally persuaded that the French language probably gets it right! ‘Joyeuses Pâques et bonnes vacances!’
