Scheme of Work for Religious Education

What is Discovery RE?

Discovery RE Scheme of Work is a thoughtful and creative set of Religious Education lesson planning for the whole Primary school, years F1 through to Year 6.

This approach takes very seriously the philosophy that children are free to make their own choices and decisions concerning religion and belief.

RE does not try to persuade but rather to inform and develop the skills with which evaluation can take place.
