Maja: I like your story Fern, it was cool.

Caspian: That Jesus can do amazing things

Zoe S: To not follow around after jesus all the time - the amazing part was that a tiny bit of food can feed lots of people.

Rose: Jesus's friends learned that they could always trust him, whatever the matter was.

Brian: Jesus's friends learnt that they don't need to be afraid because Jesus is always there. They learnt that they shouldn't be doing that because there's always food and food never ends.

Jessica: That if Jesus is there it didn't matter what, they'll get what they need. 

Maja: That they shouldn't say "you have a little lunch, that won't be enough" - it was like they were making fun of the boy. They should have said "it's enough". They would learn that it all works out in the end.
