Abbey offers tutoring to primary aged children, her unique way of working with her individual tutees means that peer assessment and learning takes place (the children see each other’s work and give feedback for one another), this helps to enthuse and motivate the children to work hard and to respond to criticism well by considering and implementing changes to their work, but also teaches vital skills about communication, empathy and respect. Abbey feels strongly that the sessions should be fun and instill a confidence in the children that will help to lay a foundation for all of their learning, in and out of school. She works closely with parents (and schools if requested) to come up with the best use of time in the weekly sessions to support each child and to make progress.
Each session lasts one hour and takes place either in Abbey’s home in Stoke Newington or at the home of the pupil. A Facetime link up can be considered instead of a home visit. It is sometimes possible for Abbey to add a school pick-up to the tuition time depending on proximity of school/home.
Sessions cost £40 (this includes the session time, preparation/marking and time communicating with parents about child’s progress).
Stripey Socks Drama is available for primary
after-school clubs and regular or one
off sessions in schools, we can even provide
an imaginative and well planned alternative
to usual PPA cover.
Stripey Socks has establishing a positive,
safe and creative learning environment
at the heart of it's ethos and uses the
discipline of theatre without the pressure
of performance in helping to create this.
Abbey is committed to (and really enjoys)
getting to know each child that she works
with and personalising the learning for
each child is paramount in her planning
wherever possible. Classes can be prepared
as 'stand-alone' sessions or in conjunction
with school topics or curriculum areas.
One off sessions can be used to introduce
new topics, to provide an uplifting mid-topic
moment or draw it to a climatic finish.
Stripey can work with staff in schools
to provide the most relevant and accessible
sessions, depending on each school's needs.
We will provide detailed lesson planning,
with direct links to the National Curriculum
Key Schools learning outcomes and the Early
Years Foundation Stage goals all areas
can be covered, with a different focus
to each lesson if required.
Teacher's packs can also be provided,
including a comprehensive sequence of
follow-up lesson plans. All planning includes
an outline of the lesson, key vocabulary
and questions, resources and suggestions
for differentiation and support for EAL
and SEN pupils. However, often our practical
activities provide an equal base for all
children and the usual 'leveling' systems
may not be required.
We are interested in
the schools we work with and would hope
to gain positive relationships with staff
and children alike, working together to
create equal learning opportunities of
a high standard, for all.
