Hello, I'm Jenny, with your last Newsround this Sunday.

:00:00.:00:08.

You tell us your favourite films of the year.

:00:09.:00:12.

And super speed at super heights,

:00:13.:00:13.

for the Air Race World Championships.

:00:14.:00:26.

First, good news for the hundreds of pilot whales that were stranded

:00:27.:00:29.

More than 200 of the animals have re-floated themselves

:00:30.:00:33.

:01:12.:01:14.

so being on the sand puts great strain on their organs.

:01:15.:01:17.
