Armistice - 14-18 NOW


14-18 NOW Armistice

Armistice Learning Resources for 5–11 Year Olds

This autumn, primary schools across the UK are invited to create their own centenary commemoration using new resources based on a UK-wide event commissioned by 14-18 NOW. Marking 100 years since the Armistice and the end of the First World War, this is a great opportunity to share in a national schools endeavour.

Based on an idea by Oscar-winning director Danny Boyle the commission will see communities coming together to commemorate lives lost and changed as a result of this global conflict.

FREE cross curricular, learning resources for pupils aged 5-11 years, will be made available for every primary school in the UK to access in September 2018. These lessons are designed to promote enquiry and discussion, and help pupils gain a better understanding of commemoration and remembrance of the First World War in this centenary year.

14-18 NOW is a five-year programme of extraordinary arts experiences connecting people with the First World War. These new artworks bring stories of the First World War to life, offer fresh perspectives and connect a global conflict from 100 years ago with our world today. So far more than 30 million people have experienced the programme. Activities will culminate in a national moment of reflection and commemoration on the 11th November, 2018.

Commissioned by 14-18 NOW in partnership with the National Trust. Supported by the Big Lottery Fund with thanks to Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (UK Branch).
