At Bourne Westfield, Discovery RE is used to teach RE. This is an enquiry approach, and each unit begins with a ‘big question.’ The concepts taught are:

  • Special people
  • Creation
  • Incarnation
  • Salvation
  • Belonging
  • Community
  • Prayer and worship
  • Beliefs and practices.

These key concepts underpin learning in each year group. This enables pupils to reinforce and build upon prior learning, make connections and develop subject specific language.
