Mr Waterman

“Hello, my name is Mr Waterman and I am Morehall Primary’s Year 6 teacher. I specialise in English Language, Literature and Performing Arts. For the past nine years, I have worked in a variety of school settings across Key Stages 2-5 and in FAHE, delivering a range of National Curriculum projects and extracurricular engagement.

I am passionate about theatre, literature, music and film and spend much of my free time watching and reading plays.

I love reading stories and employ a wide range of well-intended, yet dubious accents for characters from books. My favourite story in recent years to share with children is Morpurgo’s modern classic, Private Peaceful – a harrowing story of bravery, camaraderie and sacrifice, set in The Great War.

In the future, I aspire to become a children’s novelist and hope to find inspiration to put pen to page each and every day whilst working with learners at Morehall Primary.”

 

About Barack Obama

Barack Obama served as the 44th President of the US from 2009 to 2017. Obama passed several bills, which sought to extend welfare support and help the economy to recover from the Financial and Economic Crisis of 2009. His primary legislation included health care reform (Protection and Affordable Care Act), and The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. Obama also approved a major bailout of the automobile industry. In Foreign Policy, Obama sought to end the war in Iraq, though he committed military support to combat the growing presence of IS in Iraq and Syria. Obama also signed up to the 2015 Paris Climate Change Agreement. Despite a fractious political system, Obama was noted for retaining a dignified and calm demeanour, seeking to unite the country in the face of divisive issues. He is widely regarded as a charismatic speaker – frequently speaking on the ideals of hope and optimism.
