We thought about people who have disabilities and whether this effected how we saw them and our expectations of what people with disabilities could achieve. We watched an amazing video about the Invictus Games .which really challenged our thinking. See your comments bellow. Lottie : I didn’t know that someone ion a wheelchair could do a back flip
