Hi Newsrounders, Jenny here, live with all the news you need
to know this Sunday.
Here's what's coming up.
Good news for some of the whales stranded in New Zealand.
And Moana, Finding Dory or Kubo - who will win big
at tonight's BAFTAs?
First, good news for the hundreds of pilot whales that were stranded
on a beach in New Zealand.
More than 200 of the animals have re-floated themselves
and returned to sea.
Earlier, volunteers managed to re-float around 100 of them, too.
But why did so many get stranded, and why is it so important
that they get back to sea?
Whales form a really strong social bonds in their groups.
They're in family groups or pods.
Because of these strong family bonds, when one
individual becomes stranded, it sends out a distress signal,
which means all the others want to come and help
and protect it.
They will come into the bay, and then also end up
You need to try and get them back into deep waters
as soon as possible.
These animals need the water to support their bodies.
They're quite large, six to seven metres, they weigh a lot,
so being on the sand puts great strain on their organs.
OK, time for a quick round-up of some of the top sport stories.
Scotland play France in the Six Nations at three o'clock,
looking to make it two wins from two, after their impressive win
against Ireland last weekend.
They haven't won in Paris, though, since 1999 and can
expect a tough match.
There was delight for England as they took their unbeaten
run to 16 matches - beating Wales in Cardiff yesterday.
England were less than five minutes from defeat against Wales,
until Elliot Daly got a late winning try.
Yesterday's other game was a rather different story.
Ireland scoring nine tries against Italy
in a 63-10 thrashing in Rome.
This week on Newsround we've been talking about selfies,
because a Newsround survey suggested that more than half
of 10 to 12-year-olds who use social media like to share selfies
with their friends - and most think it's important
to look as good as possible when they do.
For loads of you selfies are just a bit of fun,
but is there a serious side too?
Ricky's got this one.
With cameras in our phones and tablets, there is nothing easier
than snapping a selfie.
# Let me take a selfie.
Looking good, being creative and having fun.
You get likes, and you get nice comments.
You need to get your good side.
You need to have it high.
I pull it in.
I turn it so it makes an angle.
I just put my hand up to the sky and take a picture.
The high angle and the tanned filter.
Would all like to look good, but how important is it to look good
in a selfie that we share?
More than four out of five say it is.
# Let me take a selfie.
But what happens when it isn't just good fun?
Sometimes people get more likes than you, and you may get
a little bit jealous.
There is a little bit of pressure.
When you post a really bad picture, people wouldn't like you.
The celebrities, they do stuff and then they...
Like, they wear lots and lots of make-up and it makes us
feel like we have to do that to look good.
I think selfies are a bit of fun, because what do
you do when you're bored?
When I take a picture, I take about five and before I pick
the one, then I post it.
When I take a picture, I take about three before I post one.
I make it like it don't show your spots.
In real life, you can see everything.
But on a picture, it blurs out some of the things.
You can blur out spots or stuff like that.
Most of you take around four selfies before you find one
you would like to post.
And then most of you edit them with filters or cropping.
But is it possible to worry too much about how you look?
Young people feel at massive sense of pressure to make
themselves look perfect.
But the problem is that the pictures that they're looking out of other
people's lives are edited.
So you're comparing yourself with something that isn't real.
Selfies are meant to be a bit of fun between you and your mates,
but when it stops being fun, you need to take a step back.
You don't need to be self-conscious of yourself,
because you look good the way you are.
Always keep your account on private.
Don't be bothered if anyone doesn't like what you posting.
Just be yourself.
Just do it for a laugh, really.
Like, don't take it serious.
And don't forget there's loads more on our survey and how to make sure
you're being safe on social media at Newsround online.
All the A-listers will be getting ready to strut their stuff
on the red carpet tonight, for UK movie awards, the BAFTAS.

is also up for five BAFTAs, including special visual effects.

Which one would you give the best film award to?

Now before I go, just take a look at these pictures.
They're from the opening round of the Air Race
World Championships, in Abu Dhabi.
The aim is to fly round the racetrack,
between the air-filled pylons, in the fastest possible time.
Super easy, no?
Martin Sonka, from the Czech Republic, won round one.
That's all from the team for now, Newsround's back just
