The Bible according to the Little Fishes

The Little Fishes gathered again this afternoon to enjoy another Bible story about St Paul but while everyone was arriving we sang some of our favourite songs – ‘Twinkle, twinkle little star’, ‘Away in a manger’ and ‘The wiseman built his house upon the rock’.

Rev’d Christina reminded us about how Paul had been really mean to the Friends of Jesus and then how Jesus how spoken to him from a bright light as he travelled to Damascus. From then on Paul had become one of Jesus’ followers.

After a while the people of Damascus wanted Paul to be arrested. So his friends put together a plan for Paul to escape.

First of all, we had to build the city walls of Damascus.

Rev’d Cristina told us that Paul’s friends put him him in a large basket so they could lower him over the city walls. We found a large basket and put teddy in it.

image

Then we attached ropes to the basket.

image

And got ready to lower Teddy over the city walls.

image

After all this excitement it was time for some colouring. All different colours were chosen for the basket from yellow through to purple.

image

Then it was time to knock the city walls down!

The Bible according to the Little Fishes

‘Is it possible for people to change?’, was the question the Little Fishes were considering this week as they learnt a little bit about St Paul. And to tell this story Rev’d Peter needed…a bag of bricks?

Is it possible for someone to go from being scary like this monster…

image

…to something useful like this bridge?

image

The Little Fishes heard that this was what happened to Paul. When we first meet him in the Bible he is being mean and nasty to the Friends of Jesus. But one day he saw a bright light which blinded him. Jesus spoke to Paul from the light and told him to be nice to his friends and so Paul was.

Then it was time for some construction

…and then for some demolition!

The biscuits were very popular after all this hard work.

The Bible according to the Little Fishes

The Little Fishes returned this week after their winter break. Could they squeeze another story out of Christmas? Of course they could!

image

As the Little Fishes gathered we remembered how long it took Christmas to arrive; how long it took Father Christmas to arrive on Christmas Eve and then how long some of us had to wait on Christmas morning before we were allowed to open our presents. One Little Fishy told us how they didn’t wait quite so long as the rest after they escaped from their beds in the middle of the night and had to be rounded up by a not-very-happy mummy!

We were feeling in a party mood by this time so we played a game of pass-the-parcel.

image

Rev’d Peter was in charge of the music and he made us wait so long before we could remove each layer of paper.

image

Eventually we got to the end and the prize was Baby Jesus! We had waited such a long time!

image

We shared the story of Simeon and Anna waiting and waiting at the temple to meet the Christ. And how they knew it was the Baby Jesus when Mary and Joseph brought him to the temple in Jerusalem to be presented to God.

And what do you need to do once you have received your presents? You have to say thank you. So that is what we did – a thank you letter to God.

The Bible according to the Little Fishes

The Little Fishes gathered for their last get together before Christmas. They were soooo excited. Apparently, Father Christmas will be bringing them some presents in just a few sleeps.

But why do we get presents at Christmas? The Little Fishes struggled with this answer. They just knew they were going to get some so we got a jigsaw puzzle out to help us find the answer.

image

Eventually we found all the right pieces and made a picture of the Christmas stable.

image

But someone was missing!

image

One of the Little Fishes found the Baby Jesus and we learned that he was God’s gift to us and that he came to earth to be our friend and Saviour…and that is why we have presents at Christmas.

Another Little Fish spotted the three kings carrying their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. Another reason for presents at Christmas. There was only one thing for it but to get the jingle bells out and sing.

Colouring, party food and play followed.

image

The Little Fishes would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas.

We are going to take our Christmas break now and our next meeting will be on 10th January when all babies, toddlers and pre-school children are very welcome to come along with their carers at 2pm in St Peter’s church.
