Religious Education





At Willow Tree Primary School we use Discovery RE as our RE scheme of work. Discovery RE is a comprehensive set of detailed medium-term planning for Religious Education from Reception to Year 6. There are 64 Enquiry modules covering Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism and are designed to support the teacher to deliver engaging and challenging RE lessons with confidence. The enquiry approach makes RE exciting and engaging for both teachers and children alike.
