Religious Education (RE)
Here at Beech Street Primary School, we use the Discovery RE scheme of work to deliver an RE curriculum that enables children to develop their religious literacy and conceptual understanding.
We encourage children to share their ideas about religion, beliefs and spirituality in a safe tolerant classroom.
Each unit of Discovery RE starts with a big enquiry question - there is no right or wrong answer - as long as you can justify your opinion. The units then continue following these 4 main steps; Engagement Investigation, Evaluation and Expression. This enables the children to initially reflect on their existing thoughts and feelings, progress through the new learning, and then ultimately allow them time to reflect and express their opinions.
Discovery RE not only links with British Values, it also ties in with our school value of Tolerance.
The document below outlines the RE teaching overview, from Nursery through to Year 6.
