Strikes and Flying Pickets


Use the powerpoint attached to help you with today's task.


Following on from the visit of an ex-miner we would like you to:

Create a poster of information about the Miners’ Strike in 1984. Set this out however you want.
A double-page spread may look good.

Try to include:​

  • Key dates​

  • Why the strike happened?​

  • Who was affected by the strike?​

  • Information on the NCB and NUM​

  • Picket lines and flying pickets​

  • A table of reasons why people were for and against the strike​

  • The impact the strikes had nationally​
