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.

Classroom expectations

At Mr. Martin's class, we strive to maintain a positive environment where students and staff enjoy school and treat each other with mutual respect. We P.R.I.D.E ourselves in what we do.

  • P- Positive Attitude
  • R- Respect for All

  1. Is what I’m saying and doing done with a Positive attitude?
  2. Is what I’m saying and doing showing Respect for all?
  3. Is what I’m saying and doing showing Integrity?
  4. Is what I’m saying and doing an example of Doing the right thing?
