A Hackney primary school will trial a new programme launched by Sadiq Khan to teach youngsters more about the capital.

The mayor has extended his London Curriclum to younger children as well as secondary schools and Queensbridge Primary School pupils will be among the first to visit hidden rivers, dungeons, war bunkers and Roman houses.

They also attended the launch of the programme at City Hall on Thursday, where they performed a group dance.
