The sky's the limit - pupils learn to and be positive about their abilities

Ross Crawford 19th Feb, 2020

A MAJOR project at Batchley First School looking at the world of possibilities open to youngsters has been published in book form.

“Our aim was to let the children discover and explore all the different things that could be open to them,” said deputy headteacher Laura Smith.

“We invited amazing people, letting the children experience all kinds of new possibilities and it all evolved from there.”

Pupils also learned that an important part of life was to be resilient and not give up and to believe in themselves and their abilities.

The book, called ‘Anything is Possible’ features ten uplifting and positive stories, written by ten classes of children aged five to nine years-old.

Bringing it together was Solihull based children’s author and illustrator Lee Harrison who penned the ‘Wee Wurri’ character featuring in the ‘Brave Little Books’ series.

Lee visited Batchley First School again to hand out 100 copies of the finished books which have proved such a success he’s planning to offer the service to other schools.
