My friends 11yo is taller than me. He is prob about 155cm.

KerryMum Mon 08-Sep-08 23:40:03

forgot that I still think in inches even after all these years.

ds1 is 10 end of November. He is 144.5 cm. Is that very tall for his age?

procrastinatingparent Mon 08-Sep-08 23:42:01

ds1 is about 145cm, was 10 in May. He is one of the tallest in his class, but not the tallest.

What's that in feet and inches?

DS3 was 10 last month, and I think he's taller than that. He is tall for his age, and is virtually the same height as DS2 who is 12 next month.

KerryMum Mon 08-Sep-08 23:44:06

he's obsessed about his height. He is the youngest in his class but feels better that he is still taller than a lot of them (he's a year younger). He's always asking me to measure him.

I don't know how to convert blush

30cm in a foot 155cm is approx 5 foot 2

goingonajolly Mon 08-Sep-08 23:48:44

I actually converted it in my head from feet before I posted in an attempt to keep up with the youth of today. I forgot you are American.

unknownrebelbang Mon 08-Sep-08 23:49:05

lol, yes I know 30 cm in a foot, I was just too lazy to work it out.

I reckon DS2/3 are about 5 ft. DS3 the tallest in his class, apart from one girl I think. He's the youngest by about 4 months.

My DS who is almost 8.5yo is 140cm, and is not the tallest in his year - maybe in the top 4-5 boys. So on that basis, I wouldn't say 144cm at almost 10yo, is that tall.

My DD is 10.25yo and is 153cm tall, she is the tallest girl in her year, but there are one or two boys who are taller than her.

TequilaMockinBird Mon 08-Sep-08 23:51:45

I think my DD is about 152cm and she is 10....I only know this though because that is the size on the clothes I buy for her wink

I'm 6ft though and her dad is about 6'3" so can't really expect her to be anything other than tall grin

Tinker Mon 08-Sep-08 23:53:26

My 11 year girl is at least 5'2" since, I think, she was that at 10. Can't be bothered converting that to cms.

KerryMum Mon 08-Sep-08 23:54:57

i'm 5'11 but their father is only 5'6"

Tinker Mon 08-Sep-08 23:56:16

157.48 cms?

KerryMum Tue 09-Sep-08 00:01:59

that's very tall tinker

Tinker Tue 09-Sep-08 00:04:27

She was tallest girl in school at end of Y6 and, I think, only one or two boys were taller. I was similar but stopped growing when about 13 or 14 and am only 5'6" now. I think she'll be teh same.

In year 6 the boys tend to be shorter than the girls, but they catch up later. I have some growth charts Kerry, I'll get them out and give you a centile in a minute.

FAQ Tue 09-Sep-08 07:28:23

I was always among the tallest in my year............until I was about 12yrs old then stopped growing - at 5ft grin

snorkle Tue 09-Sep-08 07:31:36

OK, for boys at 9 years & 10 months: average is 137cm, 70th centile is 140cm, 90th centile is 144cm (which is what ds measured at that age), 97th centile is 148cm.

So, yes, quite tall Kerry - you'd expect just 9 boys out of every 100 of the same age to be taller Kerry.

AT 11 I was 5ft 1in, and taller than all my brothers who are two years younger and 2 and 3 years older than me.

Now I am still 5ft 1in, and they are all wayyyyyyyy over 6ft grin

christywhisty Tue 09-Sep-08 08:17:36

My DD is 11 next week and is about 150, she has just had a big growth spurt and has gone from average to one of the tallest.
DS was 152 when he turned 11. He was always about 90th centile but will 13 on saturday and has gone up to 98th and is 5'7, again a big growth spurt.
My DS's year 6 class was full of very tall boys and most of them were above 5,2 when they left. One of them is 5'10 now and he is only 12!

Bink Tue 09-Sep-08 08:40:03

ds is 10 next April, so not quite 9 and a half now, and is 147 cm (almost 4'10"). In any gathering of boys, he is the second-tallest - there is always one who is just bigger than he is. So I think your boy KM is tall but not exceptionally so.

KerryMum Tue 09-Sep-08 09:32:25

ah yes, found graph chart for uk and he is 90th percentile.

Lauriefairycake Tue 09-Sep-08 09:38:02

she's just turnded 10 - 4ft 10" tall - almost as tall as me hmm
