The Religion Curriculum P-12 involves four strands: Sacred Texts, Beliefs, Church and Christian Life. These strands are
interrelated and are taught in an integrated way, and in ways that are appropriate to specific local contexts.
In Year 5, students begin to appreciate the significance of community for sharing and strengthening the faith of believers,
past and present, including the Church in the Australian colonies (c.1850 CE - c.1900 CE).
Using a range of Biblical tools, they begin to see how the Gospel writers shaped their Gospels for particular communities.
They learn about the action of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers as they engage with a variety of texts, including
Scriptural references to the Holy Spirit and the Catholic Rite of Confirmation.
They develop their understanding of Christian charity and informed moral choice through an exploration of the experiences
of individuals and communities, past and present.
They broaden their appreciation of the significance of personal and communal prayer and worship (including the Eucharist,
the Psalms, Sabbath rituals and prayers); and the wisdom of the Saints (including St Mary of the Cross MacKillop) for
communities of believers.
They learn about the significance of Marian prayers (including the Hail Mary, the Rosary and the Litany of Mary of Nazareth)
in which believers praise God and entrust cares and petitions to Mary as mother of Jesus and mother of the Church.

Achievement Standard
By the end of Year 5, students identify many ways in which faith is shared and strengthened in communities of believers,
past and present.
They analyse information from a variety of texts, including Scriptural references to the Holy Spirit and the words, symbols
and actions of the Catholic Rite of Confirmation, to explain the action of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers.
They use features of Gospel texts to show how the Gospel writers shaped their Gospels for particular communities.
They describe the significance of personal and communal prayer and worship (including the Eucharist, the Psalms, Sabbath
rituals and prayers) and the wisdom of the saints, including St Mary of the Cross MacKillop, for communities of believers.
They describe ways in which believers live according to Jesus new commandment of charity (love); and make and act upon
informed moral choices.

They locate and record information about the contribution of pioneering Catholics in Australia (c.1850 CE c.1900 CE) to the
preservation of faith and the shaping of particular communities, including Indigenous communities.
They examine Marys role as mother of Jesus and mother of the Church.
They analyse the elements and features of some Marian prayers (including the Hail Mary, the Rosary and the Litany of the
Mary of Nazareth) to describe the role of Marian prayer in the lives of believers past and present.
They participate respectfully in a variety of personal and communal prayer experiences, including Marian prayers and
meditative prayer.
