As the children explore the account of Jesus miraculously feeding over 5000 people they can imagine themselves as the small boy at the centre of the story. They can identify with him and his packed lunch! They will learn about the Christian belief that God/Jesus can do miracles and wonder, if that is true, how can it be? They also see the care Jesus has for people and can be gently challenged – whatever we believe how can we care for others?
