Catholic Teaching Focus for this lesson

Within year six, students endeavour a journey to understanding the deeper concepts of Baptism, such as the promise
of God, how it effects individuals and how the human body expresses love and goodness.
Students being to develop a sense of understanding of what it means to exactly have faith in Jesus Christ and what it
takes to receive the Rite of Baptism and the Promise of God.

Prior Knowledge

experiences and through discussions in previous lessons. Students understand that Baptism is the first sacrament
out of the seven sacraments.
They understand that individuals can be Baptised at any stage of their life. They have a brief understanding that
Jesus was Baptised.
In previous lessons, the students have learnt that to develop the Promise of Jesus Christ, individuals develop seven
points related to this promise, three relating to what happens after receiving the promise and four relating to what
individuals need to do to develop the promise.
