Matthew 14:13-21 – Jesus Feeds the Five Thousand

13 When Jesus heard what had happened, he withdrew by boat privately to a solitary place. Hearing of this, the crowds followed him on foot from the towns.14 When Jesus landed and saw a large crowd, he had compassion on them and healed their sick.

15 As evening approached, 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.”

16 Jesus replied, “They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.”

17 “We have here only five loaves of bread and two fish,” they answered.

18 “Bring them here to me,” he said. 19 And he 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. 20 They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces that were left over. 21 The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children.

What happened in the story?

  • Akemjot – He prayed to God and some food came down
  • Libby – He had 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish and he blessed it and more bread and fish came
  • Makur – He put the food on the floor and blessed them up to heaven and then it became more
  • Jevan – He blessed the food to make more
  • Nate – He blessed it and then he cracked it in halves to give to disciples an the disciples gave it to the crowd
  • Aidan – He blessed the fish and then there became more and disciples put it in baskets
  • Ava – He blessed it and then somehow divided it into some pieces for them to feed the crowd
  • Libby – He blessed it to God and then I think God saw there there were a bunch of people who were hungry and so he made more of it
  • Akemjot – I think God listened because Jesus was a kind person and God helps kind people so he sent more bread and fish down


Today, as agents of our own learning, we planned the who, what, when and where of our investigative play. 

We also checked in with the teachers and updated our list of books we have read for the Readathon. We have read over 100!! Less than 200 to go until we reach our goal. 

What Character Strengths did you use in your investigations?

  • Akemjot – I used creativity because I tried a self-portrait of myself and I finished it just before we had to clean up
  • Deakyn – I used perseverance when me and Aidan were trying to draw Pokemon
  • Joey – I used teamwork because I built a boat with Nate
  • Kristina – I used creativity because I used the blocks that were in the block area
  • Kurt – We used kindness, creativity, teamwork, social intelligence and perseverance to make an iMovie
  • Maddox – I used teamwork to play a game


We calmed our bodies and minds ready for learning by watching a video about a chocolate factory!


As a class we discussed that we understood all foods can be put into 5 different groups. We thought hard about what food groups we knew…

  • Noah – Dairy
  • Tcross – Fruit and Vegetables


  1. What are the 5 food groups? Write a sentence to explain each of them.
  2. Sort the foods into the appropriate food group

Just a reminder that our MS Readathon is still happening!!! 🙂 Thank you so much to those who have already donated – we appreciate every single cent! We have read over 100 books and have no intention of stopping any time soon!

 Have a lovely night!
