Action research by teachers and artists provide a window on creative projects at work in classrooms from the Nursery to year 6, demonstrating how creative approaches to learning enhance pupils’ reading, writing, speaking and listening and how partnerships play a key role in teachers’ professional development. Contributions feature pupils’ own work and voices as well as reflections from practitioners.
