Hello, and welcome back to Newsround.

:00:00.:00:00.

I'm Hayley, and I've got all the best news from around

:00:07.:00:09.

How solar storms could have confused these whales.

:00:10.:00:15.

And should fashion stationery be banned from the classroom?

:00:16.:00:21.

People in the Caribbean and Florida in America are getting ready

:00:22.:00:32.

for the arrival of Hurricane Irma, which is one of the most powerful

:00:33.:00:35.

The hurricane is moving across the ocean, and has just hit land.

:00:36.:00:44.

In Caribbean countries, like Antigua and Saint Martin,

:00:45.:00:47.

people are preparing for strong winds and heavy rain,

:00:48.:00:50.

and overnight, some places have already started to flood.

:00:51.:00:52.

Officials in Florida have told people they need to prepare.

:00:53.:00:56.

The storm is massive and the storm surge is predicted to go

:00:57.:00:59.

Right now, it is travelling at around 15 mph and the track has

:01:00.:01:05.

it forecasted to move just south of the Florida Keys on a westerly

:01:06.:01:09.

Do not sit and wait to prepare, get prepared now.

:01:10.:01:18.

Scientists think they've figured out why a big group of whales got

:01:19.:01:21.

stranded on Britain's coast last year, and it's all to

:01:22.:01:23.

They might look amazing, but these solar storms caused a lot

:01:24.:01:32.

Last year, 29 young whales were stranded on the coasts

:01:33.:01:37.

of northern Europe and nobody could work out why.

:01:38.:01:42.

But now scientists think it could have been down to large solar

:01:43.:01:45.

storms caused by the sun, which are known as

:01:46.:01:48.

These storms in space could have affected the way the sperm whales

:01:49.:01:53.

That's why they got lost in shallow waters and beached themselves.

:01:54.:01:59.

Beaching is when whales get stuck on sand and can be very dangerous.

:02:00.:02:05.

It can happen for lots of different reasons.

:02:06.:02:07.

For these sperm whales, it was down to the solar storms.

:02:08.:02:13.

But some whales become stranded because they're sick or injured

:02:14.:02:16.

It's thought changes in the environment could cause them

:02:17.:02:21.

If there's not enough food, if temperatures are particularly

:02:22.:02:26.

high or low or if their environment has become polluted.

:02:27.:02:31.

And sometimes it's just down to mistakes.

:02:32.:02:34.

They can sometimes lose their way into shallow waters by accident

:02:35.:02:37.

whilst travelling to warmer waters to mate.

:02:38.:02:41.

Whales are very sociable creatures and often travel

:02:42.:02:43.

Marine scientists think that if one is affected by any of these things

:02:44.:02:51.

then others travelling with it will copy them, which

:02:52.:02:53.

could be what happened to the sperm whales last year.

:02:54.:03:00.

Now, some of you are already back at school, but for others,

:03:01.:03:03.

One of the most exciting and most nerve-wracking times in your life,

:03:04.:03:09.

so we asked some of YOU to describe it - in emojis!

:03:10.:03:15.

When I started high school, I felt like this. I felt like this. I felt,

:03:16.:03:26.

don't feel stressed, it is going to be bigger than primary school, and

:03:27.:03:32.

it takes a while to get used to, but after a while you got used to it. I

:03:33.:03:42.

felt... On the first-day, then be by yourself, find new people, make new

:03:43.:03:49.

friends. I felt like this. Obviously, it's going to be a change

:03:50.:03:53.

but it's not as big as you think it will be. You are worrying too much

:03:54.:03:54.

about it. I felt like this. LAUGHTER Well, many of you may have got

:03:55.:04:06.

new pens or a new pencil case for the first day back at school,

:04:07.:04:09.

but one teacher thinks fancy stationery should be banned,

:04:10.:04:12.

because it's too distracting First, it was the bottle flip, then

:04:13.:04:14.

it was the giant mega-hair bows, But has it been taken

:04:15.:04:23.

a step too far? One teacher wants to ban

:04:24.:04:29.

your stationery as well. I think some of the stationery

:04:30.:04:32.

shouldn't be allowed in the classroom because it's really

:04:33.:04:38.

only a distraction. Nobody really needs a rubber

:04:39.:04:41.

shaped like a macaron, nobody really needs a pencil

:04:42.:04:44.

sharpener that is shaped like nail polish and nobody

:04:45.:04:47.

really needs a pencil case So what do these guys

:04:48.:04:49.

from Lancashire think? My favourite piece of stationery

:04:50.:04:55.

is a rubber because you can get very My favourite stationery is this

:04:56.:04:59.

because I feel cool when I have it. I like these highlighters

:05:00.:05:08.

because if one side runs out, you can use the other side,

:05:09.:05:10.

it's double sided. When you have a special one,

:05:11.:05:12.

it makes you feel special. I don't think the stationery should

:05:13.:05:18.

be banned because some people would have to fiddle

:05:19.:05:21.

with stuff to concentrate. If it gets banned, it's fine,

:05:22.:05:26.

because you've still got pencils to write with and you've got

:05:27.:05:29.

rubbers to use. You shouldn't have, like,

:05:30.:05:31.

pink things like that, or blue You need to save it for playtime

:05:32.:05:34.

because that's when you can play but when you're in class,

:05:35.:05:43.

you have to learn. If it was banned,

:05:44.:05:46.

how would you feel? A bit sad because you'd just have

:05:47.:05:47.

boring plain pencils That's all from me, Newsround's back

:05:48.:05:50.

this afternoon at 4.20pm.
