Welcome to Year 5.4 2018/2019


Mr. Martin who has been teaching the same year group for the past 7 years in middle east will be the new Year 5-4 teacher for this academic year. This is my third 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.

WHAT'S HAPPENING AT SCHOOL?

Reading assessment (Developmental Reading Assessment-DRA) started last week and will continue throught this week. I am happy to see a lot of improvement in terms of reading fluency, speed, accuracy and comprehension skills. This is thanks to the numerous reading strategies we have put in place such as Guided reading, Shared reading, and Independent reading.
