Curriculum Links

In Year 6, students are introduced to the Christian understanding of faith and the term
communion of saints. They develop their understanding of the many ways in which faith is
lived out and celebrated in the lives of believers past and present. They learn about the
contexts and key messages of some Old Testament prophets and the contribution of some key
people (laity, religious and clergy) to the shaping of the Church in Australia (c. 1900 CE to
present). They understand the significance of Jesus New Law for the way believers live their
faith, including an exploration of the spiritual and corporal works of mercy. They develop
their understanding of the role of celebrations in the faith life of believers, including the
commemoration of High Holy Days by Jewish believers and the Churchs liturgical
celebrations (including the Eucharist). They develop their understanding of prayer in the
Christian tradition through an exploration of the Our Father, The Examen, and meditative
prayer practices including prayer journaling.
