CYP LOWER – Celebrating Raksha Bandhan in Year 2

Year 2 have been celebrating the Hindu festival of Raksha Bandhan. This festival celebrates the love between siblings, signified by tying a bracelet around the wrist. Raksha Bandhan means ‘the tie or knot of protection’.

Mrs Rafiq wore a beautiful sari and taught Year 2 all about this interesting festival.
