Good morning, Jenny here live with your Tuesday Newsround.

:00:00.:00:00.

Find out what this sneaky squirrel is about to do in a shop in Canada.

:00:00.:00:13.

And I will be making for my homework!

:00:14.:00:25.

First up, we're talking about homework and the school that

:00:26.:00:28.

More than nine in ten schools in the UK set homework,

:00:29.:00:34.

but some people don't think students in primary school

:00:35.:00:36.

I went to visit one school that's swapped spellings and sums

:00:37.:00:40.

I fit my entire body through a piece of A4 paper.

:00:41.:00:46.

These might sound like fun things you do on a weekend, but

:00:47.:00:52.

they were actually homework tasks, set by the headteacher at this

:00:53.:00:55.

primary school in Yorkshire, where they can pick different

:00:56.:00:58.

We used to do the normal English and maths and project-based, but we

:00:59.:01:04.

So we looked at changing ours to make it far more creative.

:01:05.:01:10.

In the UK, the government says it's up to headteachers to decide

:01:11.:01:12.

whether or not to set homework, so what did the children

:01:13.:01:15.

at the school think of the challenges that they

:01:16.:01:18.

I can choose what I want to do, and it's a great way to learn.

:01:19.:01:23.

I think that all children should do it this way.

:01:24.:01:26.

Now it's just so much more flexible and stress-free.

:01:27.:01:30.

I think it doesn't really get you prepared for high

:01:31.:01:34.

school, where you get a lot more homework.

:01:35.:01:36.

Also, you might have a lot of brothers or sisters like me.

:01:37.:01:41.

That means they have to do the same things as well.

:01:42.:01:43.

I'd say my mum isn't as stressed as she used to be.

:01:44.:01:49.

Because she used to get really annoyed if I didn't

:01:50.:01:52.

I don't think I'm missing out because I'm still doing the work

:01:53.:01:59.

I went to see their new style of homework for myself.

:02:00.:02:04.

Meet Pippa, she chose to make biscuits with her mum.

:02:05.:02:06.

So what is it like doing things like baking for your homework?

:02:07.:02:09.

In year one, we had to do stuff like quite hard homework

:02:10.:02:16.

But this time it's still to do with learning,

:02:17.:02:21.

And we are covering maths with the ingredients,

:02:22.:02:25.

and we're covering reading with the recipe, aren't we?

:02:26.:02:27.

But it's a much more fun way of doing it.

:02:28.:02:32.

Now I get to do a lot of cool stuff with my family and I've

:02:33.:02:36.

Loads of ideas there but do you think these

:02:37.:02:53.

We want to know what you would set as homework if you were in charge.

:02:54.:02:58.

Traditional spellings and sums or other activities?

:02:59.:03:00.

Get on over to Newsround online and have your say.

:03:01.:03:03.

Well, freezing weather has gripped most of Europe,

:03:04.:03:08.

with heavy snow causing big problems for roads and trains

:03:09.:03:10.

But where has this extreme weather come from, and more importantly

:03:11.:03:14.

Weatherman Simon King has got all the info for us.

:03:15.:03:24.

It's been bitterly cold across Europe over the last few days

:03:25.:03:27.

or so, we've had lots and lots of snow, and look

:03:28.:03:30.

-30 degrees in Moscow, that's well colder than your freezer at home.

:03:31.:03:34.

Even down towards the Mediterranean, -3 degrees here.

:03:35.:03:38.

In the UK, it's been relatively mild.

:03:39.:03:40.

Our turn will come later on this week.

:03:41.:03:43.

The Arctic is here, you can see the blue extending all the way down

:03:44.:03:47.

towards Italy and Greece, that brought the cold weather.

:03:48.:03:50.

If you look at the UK now, look at it turning blue.

:03:51.:03:53.

Our weather is going to come from the north-west but Arctic air

:03:54.:03:56.

Don't dust off your sledges just yet, it's going to be a cold day

:03:57.:04:01.

and there is the risk of snow but still some details uncertain.

:04:02.:04:06.

It was a big night at the Fifa awards last night.

:04:07.:04:09.

They're the group that run international football.

:04:10.:04:11.

There was good news for Leicester as their manager Claudio Ranieri won

:04:12.:04:15.

That's after he led the Foxes to that memorable

:04:16.:04:19.

And the big award, Player of the Year, went to,

:04:20.:04:25.

He's had an amazing season after leading Portugal

:04:26.:04:29.

to the European Championship and won the Champions League

:04:30.:04:32.

It was probably my best year so far. I have to include the trophy for the

:04:33.:04:54.

national team, the Portugal Metro national team, it was the first time

:04:55.:05:01.

in history for Portugal so I was so happy. And I cannot forget the title

:05:02.:05:04.

that we received for the Champions League.

:05:05.:05:05.

Check out these chimpanzees dipping and sipping.

:05:06.:05:07.

For the first time experts have managed to film chimpanzees making

:05:08.:05:09.

Scientists in the Ivory Coast in Africa shot the footage

:05:10.:05:13.

which shows the chimps making special water-dipping sticks

:05:14.:05:20.

by chewing the ends to turn it into a soft, soggy brush.

:05:21.:05:23.

And talking of clever animals, see if you can spot what this sneaky

:05:24.:05:26.

Shop owners in Toronto, in Canada, have been asking

:05:27.:05:29.

for advice about what to do with squirrels living

:05:30.:05:31.

The owners say squirrels have stolen more than 40

:05:32.:05:39.

chocolate bars, even sneaking in when they close the door.

:05:40.:05:44.

That's all from the team this morning, Newsround's back

:05:45.:05:46.

Don't forget to go online to tell us what YOU would set for homework.

:05:47.:06:03.

and your commitment to potions class.
