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.
