Kingsmead Eyes Speak Led by Gideon Mendel



I am 10 years old and I live with my two younger sisters and my Mum and Dad. My Mum, Dad , sisters and I were all born in London, however my Mum’s family come from Morocco and my Dad’s family is from England. I live in Hackney in a little mews. I have a big interest in acting and performing. I also love to read and write!

I’ve never thought about photography but it is a great job and is one of my hobbies as well as swimming, dancing, singing, acting, writing books and exploring. My favourite subjects are art, R.E., literacy, reading and all things to do with HISTORY!

Because we can go anywhere when in this room,
And dream anything.

The Dreaming Sisters

Me and my sisters sleep and dream,
About our holiday in Spain, the one that will gleam,
We come out the sea and shake our self down,
Then go to get ice-cream from the Spanish clown,
Now we go to our hotel room and have a shower,
Next is mini disco for kids, IT’S A WHOLE HOUR!
Tomorrow we will go to the club Tots, Team and Tribe,
Last time we did writing and I was the scribe,
But first we will have our food,
Play in the pool,
Make some new friends,
Look very cool,
Because we can go anywhere when in this room,
And dream anything from a picture that’s happy to a picture full of doom.
