Hi, I'm Ayshah.

0:00:070:00:13

Welcome to Newsround.

0:00:130:00:18

Do you think you should

have lessons in school

0:00:180:00:21

about how to spot fake news?

0:00:210:00:22

Well, one expert says you should -

and one group of kids had a go

0:00:220:00:27

a go in a special class.

0:00:270:00:29

Hayley's got this.

0:00:290:00:32

Fake news.

Fake news.

Fake news.

It's been one of the most talked

0:00:320:00:40

about problems of the year. Fake

news. But what is it, and what does

0:00:400:00:47

it mean to you?

Fake news is when

somebody spreads rumours that are

0:00:470:00:50

not true.

It is more like a scam, I

think.

I think fake newsies rumours

0:00:500:00:57

spread around like people to get

attention.

Sometimes it is so

0:00:570:01:03

persuasive that you think that it is

real.

If it is serious news you can

0:01:030:01:07

get worried and thinking about stuff

too much.

It makes you feel annoyed

0:01:070:01:12

and angry.

It's really hard to know

when things are true or not.

When I

0:01:120:01:19

hear something and I believe it I

feel like I have been tricked or

0:01:190:01:22

something.

Fake news normally comes

down to two things. Firstly the news

0:01:220:01:28

stories that are not true at all.

They go online and are shared on

0:01:280:01:32

social media even though the person

writing them knows they are made up.

0:01:320:01:37

Number two, stories that may have

some truth to them but the facts are

0:01:370:01:40

not clear or checked properly, or

the writer has exaggerated some of

0:01:400:01:44

it to mean what they want it to.

Would you be able to spot it? These

0:01:440:01:49

kids are taking part in a project

looking at how much kids like you

0:01:490:01:53

know about fake news on how they

deal with it. It is part of a

0:01:530:01:58

project that has been running all

year. The expert in charge of it

0:01:580:02:02

thinks that from the age of ten kids

should be taught more about how to

0:02:020:02:07

spot fake news. Children know that

fake news exists, but do they

0:02:070:02:11

actually recognise it when they see

it online, on TV and in the

0:02:110:02:15

newspapers.

That is where lessons

would really help because children

0:02:150:02:19

can stop thinking and feeling they

can actually believe the news is

0:02:190:02:23

true and might start switching off

altogether and actually not showing

0:02:230:02:26

an interest in the world around

them.

So what does this class think

0:02:260:02:30

of what they learn?

I think it

should be taught in school because

0:02:300:02:33

then they can be more aware of what

is surrounding them and they will

0:02:330:02:37

know if it is fake or not and what

to believe.

It's taught me about

0:02:370:02:41

fake news and it could be serious.

If you were not taught about it you

0:02:410:02:45

would not know what is true.

Now I

know how to spot fake news by who

0:02:450:02:52

posted it, and the likes, and where

it comes from and if I don't know I

0:02:520:02:56

will ask my friends and families.

The best advice I would say is to

0:02:560:03:01

look out for proper brands.

It helps

students to help other people learn

0:03:010:03:07

about what fake news is about and

maybe even teach your mum and dad

0:03:070:03:12

and stuff.

If it is fake, you will

not know what is happening in the

0:03:120:03:15

world.

Thanks for that.

0:03:150:03:20

So England's cricket team are now

two down in the famous Ashes

0:03:330:03:36

competition in Australia.

0:03:360:03:39

It took about an hour and 45 minutes

for their six remaining batsmen

0:03:390:03:42

to go down on the final

day in Adelaide.

0:03:420:03:44

The Australians win

the second test by 120 runs.

0:03:440:03:50

The first team to win three matches

will win whole competition.

0:03:500:03:54

Russia has been banned

from competing at next year's

0:03:540:03:57

Winter Olympics in South Korea.

0:03:570:04:02

It's after an investigation

into Russian cheating at the Sochi

0:04:020:04:05

games four years ago.

0:04:050:04:06

The International Olympic Committee

says Russian athletes who can prove

0:04:060:04:10

they aren't taking drugs

to improve their performance will be

0:04:100:04:14

allowed to compete,

but as an individual

0:04:140:04:15

but not for Russia.

0:04:150:04:18

And exciting news for space fans!

0:04:190:04:21

Cue the music!
