Fledgelings See and Know: Noah's Ark - Blue

fledglings2Hello everyone!  Hope you're all keeping well.  In "See and Know" this week we're looking at the colour blue as we think about the story of Noah's Ark.  There is a link to a picture of some bluebells to colour in blue under the video this week to go with previous week's green leaves, yellow sunflower, orange dahlia and red rose.  
Last week one of our fab mums Debra who comes to Fledgelings in Harwell and Chilton shared some of her story, this week it's lovely Esther who many of you will know from when she used to bring her daughters to Fledgelings, and from when she's  occasionally helped on a Wednesday morning in Chilton.  I hope you enjoy hearing from her.
We would love to hear from you and know how you're doing, what you've been up to, and to see any of the crafts you've made.  Why not drop us a text or an email?  Also let us know if there is any way we can help or assist you, or anything we can pray for you and your family.
God Bless

Fledgelings See and Know: Noah's Ark - Orange

fledglings2

Hello everyone!  As I'm sat typing this there is a rain and thunder storm happening outside.  It seems quite appropriate somehow for our current topic of Noah's Ark!  This week as we think about the story we will also be looking at the colour orange.  There is a link to another flower to colour in under the video, a lovely dahlia to make orange to go with the red rose from last week.  
Last week we had the lovely Jude record a short video for the grown ups, this week it's the also lovely Carol.  Carol also looks after us at Fledgelings in Chilton.  We hope you find her video helpful.
Let us know how you're doing by dropping us a text or an email, we would love to hear from you.  Let us know if there is any way we can help or assist you, or anything we can pray for you too.

Fledgelings See and Know: Noah's Ark - Red

Lovely Jude has recorded a short video for the grown ups this week.  Jude is one of the wonderful ladies who look after us at Fledgelings in Chilton each week.  We hope you enjoy her video.
Let us know how you're doing by dropping us a text or an email, we would love to hear from you, and let us know if there is any way we can help or assist you too.

Fledgelings See and Know: God Made Me - Growing

fledglings2Hello again very lovely families! This week marks the end of our "God Made Me" series, this week thinking about growing.  It's also our 10th week of online "See and Know".  An anniversary we would never have imagined having this time last year! 
To mark the end of this topic we thought it would be nice to make an "All About Me" book to record what your child is like during this strange time.  Under the video there is a link to a website that has some lovely ideas on what to include.  It's an American site so you might need to adapt some of the things slightly.
This week's songs have been chosen by Samuel and Harry, and under the craft ideas there is also a video of Harry playing along to his favourite song "Hosanna".  Thank you for letting us share it for everyone to see Harry's mummy and daddy! 
Sarah has recorded a short grown ups video this week about her journey to becoming a Christian.  Do have a watch to learn something of her story, and please get in touch if you have any questions/ want to know more.  Please also get in touch if there is anything else you need help or support with.  We're here for you, we're praying for you and we would love to hear from you!

Alpha advertFledgelings See and Know: God Made Me - Hearing

fledglings2Hello lovely families! We're approaching the end of our "God Made Me" series, this week we're thinking about our ears and hearing.  We're playing a listening game this week, hope you enjoy it.
There are links to 2 crafts under the video this week.  One is to make a cup and string telephone, and the other to make a loo roll shaker.  Why not send us a picture if you make them?  We would love to see your creativity.
This week's songs have been chosen by Ezra, Thea and Harry - thank you for choosing them!  There is an extra video under the craft ideas of Harry's favourite song "Hosanna" that we first shared for Palm Sunday.  We hope you enjoy it as much as he does!  Let us know which song your child (or you!) would like to sing next week.
There is our usual, short grown ups video which we hope is helpful.  If you want to ask or talk about any of the things we talk about in the videos please get in touch with Sarah or Melanie.  Please also get in touch if there is anything else you need help or support with.  We're here for you, we're praying for you and we would love to hear from you!

PS - Have a watch of the bonus video under the grown ups talk.  My crazy son decided he could sing "Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes" better than me so recorded his own video when I left my phone unattended!  Send in your requests for what you'd like to see him sing next!  (Posted with his permission).

Fledgelings See and Know: God Made Me - Smell

fledglings2Hello again everyone!  This week in our "God Made Me" series we're thinking about noses and smell.  If you and your child want to join in and test if your noses are working(!), gather together a few "smelly" things to sniff when Melanie does during the video (with the help of her lovely assistant!).  The craft linked to under the video is spice painting.  It's a craft we've had at Fledgelings before and most herbs and spices work well just by mixing them into normal paint.
Joshua and his daddy Daniel have chosen a song to sing this week, hope you enjoy it.  Let us know which song your child (or you!) would like to sing next week.
Sarah has recorded a short grown ups video this week based on a lovely prayer.  We've included the prayer under the video which you can click on if you would like to print off a copy.
Please get in touch if there is anything we can do to help or support you and your family in anyway, and even if there isn't we would love to hear how you're doing.
Praying for you

Fledgelings See and Know: God Made Me - Taste

fledglings2Hello lovely people!  Here is the latest video in our "God Made Me" series.  This week we're thinking about our tongues and taste.  If you want to join in tasting things during the video get some salt, sugar, lemon and a couple other things to taste (Melanie has chocolate and mustard but you can choose anything you like!).  You can also print off the "Fledgelings Taste Test" sheet below the video to record what you think of the different tastes, and try the recipe for rice crispy cakes - yum! 
Samuel has chosen the songs again this week.  Let us know which song your child (or you!) would like to sing next week.

We hope the short grown ups video blesses you this week - literally!  Watch it to see why and also the beautiful video below it.
Please get in touch if there is anything we can do to help or support you and your family in anyway, and even if there isn't we would love to hear how you're doing.
Praying for you

Fledgelings See and Know: God Made Me - Sight

fledglings2Hello!  Here is the third video for our topic "God Made Me".  This week we're thinking about our eyes and sight, and as well as all the usual "See and Know" things we play a game!  Our songs this time have been chosen by Samuel.  Why not let us know which song your child (or you!) would like to sing next week?
Below the video is a link to a Google search page with lots of pictures to inspire you to make some binoculars.  Maybe you could play "I Spy" with them.  Send us see a picture if you make any, we would love to see them.  

We've included another short grown ups video with the challenge to ask us your questions about Christianity, Jesus, the Bible, church... We'll do our very best to answer them for you. 

If you do have questions you might also be interested in the online Alpha Course we're hoping to run.  Alpha is a series of videos looking at the Christian faith and common questions about it.  Each week there is a video to watch and then time for discussion and asking questions.  If you would be interested in taking part let one of us know, our contact details are above.
If there is anything we can do to help or support you and your family please let us know, and even if there isn't we're always just up for a chat!

Fledgelings See and Know: Spring

fledglings2We're missing seeing you all at Fledgelings, but we thought just because we can't meet together doesn't mean we can't have our singing time.  Below is a video to sing along with that we've tried to make as much like a normal "See and Know" session as we can.  We hope you enjoy it and would love to hear your feedback. 
Below there are also some links to some craft ideas and colouring on the theme of spring.  We would love to see what you make.  Why not email us a picture?  And don't forget to let us know what song you would like from the song bag, especially if it's your birthday.
There's also a second video with a short thought for grown ups that we hope you find helpful.  If you need a chat give one of us a ring or email us and we can ring you (contact details above).  We would also love to pray for you and your family.  If you have anything specific you would like us to pray for let us know.
