The London Curriculum can help students engage with the heritage of their city. It can also help them identify as Londoners. By creating a sense of pride in London, it can also inspire young people to be more active citizens in future.

We’ve been involved in the London Curriculum right from the start. We wrote the history units and provided images for all subjects. We ensured the content is historically accurate.

A New Direction helps London create, think and learn, ensuring that young people get the most out of London’s creative and cultural offer. We know that London’s people, places and heritage offer extraordinary opportunities for learning and creativity. We believe the London Curriculum is a great way for schools to connect with them.

We helped develop the first London Curriculum units, and continue to champion it to schools. The London Curriculum is a great way for Artsmark schools to make the most of London’s unique arts and culture offer.

We’re delighted to support the London Curriculum. Theatre’s a vital part of London life and an amazing way to learn about ourselves and about the world. We want all young Londoners to have the chance to take part.

Schools exploring the London Curriculum are welcome at the National Theatre on the South Bank. You can see behind the scenes from the free Sherling High- Level Walkway. Discover the building’s amazing architecture on a school visit.

We were delighted to work with City Hall to produce the geography units for the London Curriculum. Exploring London’s human and physical geography is a fantastic way for young Londoners to better understand their city. It means they can see how and why it continues to change.

Thanks to the Mayor ’s London Schools Excellence Fund, we’ve also been able to publish 20 new online geography resources for schools.

The London Curriculum is a fantastic idea. It encourages young people to play an active part in the rich cultural heritage of their city.

The National Portrait Gallery, London collects portraits of people who’ve ‘contributed to British history, art and culture’. It is an ideal place for young people to discover the stories of inspiring Londoners who helped shaped the world we live in today.

Exploring portraits of ‘significant’ citizens in our collection offers young people a chance to question what it is to be British.

We produced the London Curriculum dance unit which supports key stage 3 PE. It offers a practical way for students to explore and learn more about the huge range of dance styles in London. We used this amazing city to design inspiring lesson plans, using London’s landmarks, history, urban life, travel and transport. We feel strongly that these resources bring London to life in a relevant and appealing way. We also run our own learning programme for young Londoners.

 

STEM Education Centre

www.stemedlondon.org.uk

The London Curriculum enhances the learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subjects. It gives students and teachers meaningful, curriculum linked activities to explore the world of STEM both inside and outside London classrooms.

We offer continuing professional development for teachers of STEM subjects. The aim is to help teachers motivate students to do their best. We also want to help develop students’ interests so they’ll consider a career in STEM.

Writing the STEM units has challenged us to bring together information on London relevant to learning STEM. We hope it will prove useful for all teachers at all stages of their careers.
