Welcome to Year 5.4 2017/2018
Mr. Martin who has been teaching the same year group for the past 6 years in middle east will be the new Year 5-4 teacher for this academic year. This is my second year at English Modern School. Get ready to have fun while learning in this wonderful year. I love it when my students are happy and see me as a mentor, a friend and a teacher. Moreover, kids don't learn from the people they hate.
Kindly note that the 2017/2018 academic year runs until 14th June 2018. Students are therefore expected to keep coming to school until the last day because formative assessments are still on, which can make a huge difference on the overall report score.
