Use French stories to teach saying how old you are

In J’ai six ans, the fourth Luc and Sophie book, Luc and Sophie are at the swimming pool. Sophie introduces herself to Nadine and they find out how old they both are. As with many siblings, Sophie is not happy when her older brother tries to join in the conversation!


The story is told via speech bubbles and is a fabulous way of teaching children how to ask and say how old they are.

Barbara Scanes, the author, says that she used her own children (who are now in their 20s!) as role models when thinking of what Luc et Sophie would do.

The book can be bought on it’s own, as part of the Year 3/4 Starter Pack or in a class set with all 14 storybooks for Years 3/4.
