Religious Knowledge and Deep Understanding
Faith is shared and strengthened in the community of believers. The central and primary sharing of faith within the community
of believers is the celebration of Eucharist.
Identify ways in which people share faith within a community of believers (e.g. family, parish, school).


Year 5 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.
