Hi, I'm Martin with your Newsround update.

:00:00.:00:00.

Coming up: wildfires eat up hundreds of miles of forest in the US.

:00:00.:00:08.

And out of this world - the school where you learn about space.

:00:09.:00:18.

First - what would you change in the world by the time you're grown up?

:00:19.:00:22.

30 primary school children from across Wales have written postcards

:00:23.:00:24.

about their hopes for the future, to world leaders who arrive in Newport

:00:25.:00:27.

for the NATO summit - that's a big meeting of some of the world's most

:00:28.:00:31.

powerful people. The messages from nine and ten-year-olds will be given

:00:32.:00:34.

to Prime Minister David Cameron and US President Barack Obama.

:00:35.:00:40.

When I grow up, I hope people will not waste money and make sure there

:00:41.:00:44.

is food and water for children across the world.

:00:45.:00:50.

When I grow up, I want all children to be able to go to school because

:00:51.:00:54.

everyone should have equal rights, even if they are a boy or a girl, or

:00:55.:00:57.

And tonight we'll have a special report on US President Obama's visit

:00:58.:01:06.

to a school in Wales. And you can let us know on the Newsround website

:01:07.:01:10.

what you'd change in the world if you could talk to world leaders.

:01:11.:01:16.

Wildfires are continuing to rage in Northern California in the

:01:17.:01:19.

US,putting hundreds of people and animals at risk. Many have been

:01:20.:01:22.

moved out of their homes to stay safe.

:01:23.:01:31.

The fire spread as the wind whipped it up. Mile after mile, the flames

:01:32.:01:38.

eight up the trees. They have already destroyed over 100 miles of

:01:39.:01:44.

land. Helicopters, carrying huge bowls of water, flew over at these

:01:45.:01:49.

milk, dropping hundreds of gallons. They are trying to protect over 750

:01:50.:01:56.

homes at risk. People living in some of the homes have been forced to

:01:57.:02:00.

evacuate to escape the fire. So far, no one has been injured. But the

:02:01.:02:06.

fire is inching closer. It started in August when lightning struck.

:02:07.:02:07.

Firefighters believe If you've ever dreamed of being an

:02:08.:02:17.

astronaut floating high above the Earth at the International Space

:02:18.:02:20.

Station - the UK's very first space school opened this week. It's

:02:21.:02:22.

designed to give pupils the best chance of getting a job to do with

:02:23.:02:25.

space. It's in Banbury in Oxfordshire. BBC reporter Helen Catt

:02:26.:02:28.

sent us this special report. the fire a rocket, blasting off to

:02:29.:02:37.

learn new things about space. What if you learnt about it every day at

:02:38.:02:42.

school? This is something not many people get to experience. I love

:02:43.:02:49.

learning about new things. I think it is the fact that space is the

:02:50.:02:55.

final frontier. It is like we are the first people, kind of two learn

:02:56.:03:03.

about it. There is no home work but the children have to go to school

:03:04.:03:08.

for longer. From 830 in the morning to 530 at night. There is an

:03:09.:03:13.

assembly. Some of these teenagers could one day be rocket scientists.

:03:14.:03:17.

The headmaster says he hopes others will start companies. They have

:03:18.:03:22.

video channels, sponsorship from you Tube. We want to harness that idea

:03:23.:03:29.

and dumb people have fantastic ideas. These pupils are designing a

:03:30.:03:36.

class logo. Maybe one day someone will wear one for real.

:03:37.:03:37.

Andy Murray took a gruelling three hours and thirty three minute

:03:38.:03:40.

beating from Novak Djokovic - losing in four sets in the quarter finals

:03:41.:03:44.

of the US Open tennis in the past few hours. He fought back time after

:03:45.:03:47.

time - despite problems with his back - but in the end was overcome

:03:48.:03:50.

Next - it's been a another successful summer for Great

Britain's paralympic champion Jonnie Peacock. Jonnie sprinted to victory

:03:56.:03:57.

to win 100 metre gold at the European Championships last month in

:03:58.:04:00.

Swansea. He can add it to his growing collection of golds from the

:04:01.:04:03.

Paralympics and the World Champs. And he's here now to tell us how to

:04:04.:04:07.

be the best. Great to have you with us, Jonnie.

:04:08.:04:18.

Were you born like this? The last six years of my life have been

:04:19.:04:28.

dedicated to buy tix, so it doesn't come luckily. You have work hard.

:04:29.:04:35.

People might not know but you run with one leg. Can you give us an

:04:36.:04:39.

idea of the challenges you have to overcome to run with one leg? I have

:04:40.:04:46.

one prostatic leg and one real leg. One is not quite symmetrical. So, it

:04:47.:04:53.

is like trying to control that and make it as symmetrical as possible.

:04:54.:04:58.

Did it take you a while to get used to it? Yes. It took a while to start

:04:59.:05:05.

to get to somewhere I was happy with in running. How did you get involved

:05:06.:05:11.

in sprinting? I got to try out so many different Paralympic sports a

:05:12.:05:15.

few years ago and from there I got set up with an athletics coach and

:05:16.:05:19.

things moved from there. Who inspired you to take up sport? David

:05:20.:05:25.

Beckham. I was football mad as a kid. I wanted to be him. What advice

:05:26.:05:33.

would you give to kids wanting to get involved in sport? Go down to

:05:34.:05:38.

your local sports club. There are school sports and so many things you

:05:39.:05:42.

can do. Find something that you enjoy. Give it a go, you never know.

:05:43.:05:48.

I wasn't sure about athletics but I tried it and I loved it. I could be

:05:49.:05:54.

seeing you at a future event. Thank you. We're back in half an hour.

:05:55.:05:58.

Goodbye.
