AN EAST End school has dumped its usual curriculum for a week to teach pupils more about the World Cup.
Lessons at Bishop Challoner School in Shadwell, where England defender Ledley King was taught, will be following the theme of the tournament throughout this week.
Year 7 and Year 8 students will be learning about football during the Tudor years in their History lesson, different national anthems in their Music lessons and how to write match reports in English.
Meanwhile their Maths lessons will be about percentages and averages using the World Cup's games and tables.
