Following on from our Watford Mental Health programme, we were set two challenges. We had to try to count to 21 without any order and only one person speaking at one time.

Our 2nd challenge, was to balance a cup on our heads and get up and down without touching the cup. We had many successful attempts - again all of York class showed great determination and growth mindset.
