The Little Fishes gathered this week for their last instalment in the story of Joshua. The People of God had crossed the River Jordan and finally entered the Promised Land after forty years wandering in the desert. They had now reached the city of Jericho.

We shared the story of how the walls of Jericho came tumbling down and then it was time to act it out. Rev’d Peter and James became our chief engineers and helped us build a magnificent wall out of cardboard boxes. We made ourselves some paper trumpets and got ready to march around the city. We had heard in the story how the People of God marched round the city in silence each day. We found this quite hard to do. But then the seventh day arrived and we shouted and yelled and blew on our trumpets and our cardboard walls came tumbling down.

Then it was time for some sticking and we made our own walls of Jericho.

But we just couldn’t leave all those boxes alone so we hid in them…

…and built towers with them…

…and made camps with them.

Little Fishes is our ‘mums and tots’ group which meets every Friday in church from 2pm. There is no charge and all babies, toddlers and pre-school children are very welcome to come along with their carers for songs, stories, craft and play.
