Harry Potter Competition

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Harry Potter, you can enter a magical competition! The winner will receive a school library make over in the style of Hogwarts, plus a whole trunk of Harry Potter books!

To enter, you must invent and design your own magical library. Please ask Miss Griffiths or Miss Bridge for a competition form. Be as creative as you can – what would a magical library have in it that would be different to a normal library?

Good luck!

WW2 bomb found in Birmingham!

Today we woke up to the news that an unexploded WW2 bomb has been discovered on the Aston Expressway, which is in Birmingham City Centre! Click the link here to read the BBC link all about this exciting story!

Have a look at this map of South Birmingham (scroll to the bottom to see Hall Green!)

The blue dots represent High Explosive bombs that exploded, and blue crosses those that failed to.

Red dots represent incendiary bombs, and red crosses incendiaries that failed to ignite. Incendiary bombs are ones that started burning when they landed, meaning they caused lots of dangerous fires. 

Here is an image of Hall Green from 1926. It looks more like the countryside than the city we know today!

Here is a picture of Hall Green today, look how developed it is! Can you see our school?
