STRIKE, STRIKE, STRIKE!

6M held a mock strike last term. The children were learning about the matchstick girls of Bryant and Mays Factory. They discovered the horrifying truth of what went on. The girls used to be fined for laughing, sneezing, being late and having dirty feet. They also had many occupational hazards such as phossy jaw (where your jaw disintegrates), loss of fingers and even baldness! The conditions were truly awful. They decided to strike just like the girls. Have a look at our videos below.
