On 11th november 2018, I invited people to come together to mark 100 years since the armistice and the end of the first world war so that all across the united kingdom and ireland we commemorated the lives lost, affected and changed irrevocably as a result of this global conflict.

Danny Boyle Director

Resources were created using Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea as a starting point to explore the First World War with pupils. Hard copies of the learning resources were distributed to all primary schools in the UK, but you can download a copy from this site along with supporting materials to use in the classroom. Watch the film of the portraits here.
