·         Now I am going to tell you a story about how Jesus fed the people
·         Bring out the bread and the fish

Jesus withdrew by boat privately to a quiet place. The crowds followed him. When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.
Evening came and the disciples came to him and said, “This is a remote place, and it’s already getting late. Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.”

Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”
“We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

“Bring them here to me,” he said. Jesus directed the people to sit down on the grass. Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then he gave them to the disciples, and the disciples gave them to the people. They all ate and were full. The disciples picked up 12 basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, women and children.

Parent Newsletter

February 5, 2011
Dear Parent

Concept Area
This week we focus on Creation – God made food for people and animals.
Your child will bring back a collage on food from different cultures he/she made during the class.

Bible Verse
The Bible verse used is Psalm 136:25 “God gives food to us”. You can recite this verse to your child at home during the week.

Bible Story
We told the story of Jesus feeding five thousand people with 5 loves of bead and 2 fish using a basket with toy bread and fish to gather the children’s attention.

Songs
We prepared songs, but we did not have the time to carry out this activity.

Activities
We had two stations for the early birds, with cutting and pasting food from different cultures and nationalities, teaching the children that God gives us food from different cultures to enjoy.

The other station with the kitchen play set was used with plastic cooking utensils and food to teach the children that it is God who provides us with food to cook our meals. The children were encouraged to serve their friend (Anna) the food they cooked, reminding them of previous lesson of helping one another.

In continuation with the Bible Story theme, we served bread as snack. The children volunteered and took turn to serve the plate, cups, bread and milk to one another. Throughout, the activities, we asked the children question about Who gives food to us? And we encourage them to recite Psalm 136:25 one-by-one.

During Group game time/Circle Time, we played the game of Mystery Bags as part of sensory stimulation for children of this age group. The children picked the fruit from the bag by feeling them, without looking. We told them that God created orange, and asked them whether they can pick out the orange from the bag without looking?

We hope this helps you to keep up with the education your child received at the nursery this Sunday.

Thank you for entrusting your child with us.

You can see some of the pictures we uploaded from the class here:


In His Service,
Sarma, Jannie and Elaine
