My research took a socio- cultural perspective on literacy learning, which sought to discover ways in which knowledge and exchange of the different practices found in the domains of home and school might be utilised to benefit pupils. It was based within a collaborative action research framework (Elliott, 1991) in which I worked as a teacher researcher in partnership with class teachers and parents. I focussed on literacy in Key Stage 1. Pupils were asked to take home a shoebox and select artefacts to inspire their creative writing in school and parents were asked to discuss these choices with their child.
