Hi, I'm Ricky and you're

watching Newsround.

0:00:060:00:08

Coming up on the show today...

0:00:080:00:12

The British star with her own doll.

0:00:120:00:13

But who is it?

0:00:130:00:15

The girl cleaning up after the snow.

0:00:150:00:18

The oldest message in a bottle

is discovered in Australia.

0:00:180:00:26

First up, when you walk around

where you live do you ever see

0:00:330:00:37

strange street names and wonder -

"Why did they call it that?"

0:00:370:00:41

Well, you aren't the only one,

so we've done some digging.

0:00:410:00:44

Here's this week's Big Question.

0:00:440:00:51

These might sound

like they are all made

0:00:510:00:53

up places but they are all real!

0:00:530:00:56

It is a clue to this

week's Big Question...

0:00:560:01:04

First, we need to go way

back to the Roman times.

0:01:040:01:06

They brought the idea of roads

as we know them to the UK.

0:01:060:01:09

Before that, we just

travelled on dirt tracks.

0:01:090:01:11

As more roads were

built, it became clear

0:01:110:01:14

that all the new roads needed

names so people knew

0:01:140:01:17

where they were going.

0:01:170:01:18

This started out very simply.

0:01:180:01:26

If it is the main road

in town, guess what?

0:01:270:01:30

It is called Main Street.

0:01:300:01:31

If it is a street that

has a market on it, it

0:01:310:01:34

is probably called...

0:01:340:01:35

In 2017, a research scientists

found that the most

0:01:350:01:37

popular name was High Street.

0:01:370:01:38

There are 2472 in the UK.

0:01:380:01:40

Over years, councils

and builders have had to

0:01:400:01:42

get creative.

0:01:420:01:43

Here is Alan Scott, a town planner

from the Scottish Borders

0:01:430:01:45

here to tell us more.

0:01:450:01:47

Names to be considered

could be suggested for

0:01:470:01:49

various reasons.

0:01:490:01:51

Various local people,

local landmarks, plants,

0:01:510:01:52

trees, islands.

0:01:520:01:55

We have even had them

named after golf courses.

0:01:550:01:58

I think that really

has a ring to it.

0:01:580:02:06

Olympic gold medal boxer,

Nicola Adams has been

0:02:090:02:10

turned into a Barbie doll.

0:02:100:02:12

It's International Women's Day

later this week and Nicola's

0:02:120:02:14

the first star from the UK to join

a special range of Barbie dolls

0:02:140:02:18

designed to honour inspiring women.

0:02:180:02:19

The makers of the doll

say they chose Nicola

0:02:190:02:21

because of her outstanding

contributions to boxing.

0:02:210:02:24

Nicola says she's excited to become

the first ever boxer barbie.

0:02:240:02:30

With all the snow last week,

lots of you have probably been doing

0:02:300:02:33

this.

0:02:330:02:35

But one girl has added a bit

of a twist, by clearing up

0:02:350:02:38

rubbish at the same time.

0:02:380:02:39

Check this out!

0:02:390:02:40

Wow.

0:02:400:02:42

Meet Amelia.

0:02:420:02:43

She is eight and love sledging.

0:02:430:02:48

She hates all the rubbish

people leave behind,

0:02:480:02:51

like these broken sleds.

0:02:510:02:56

She is on a mission

to clear up the trash.

0:02:560:02:58

I was worried about the children

because if they were sledging

0:02:580:03:00

they could cut themselves.

0:03:000:03:02

I was really sad because an animal

could get its head stuck in here.

0:03:020:03:07

Lots of people heard about Amelia's

big clean up and came out to help,

0:03:070:03:12

including this trash fighting hero.

0:03:120:03:19

Remember Nadia, also

known as trash girl,

0:03:190:03:23

who became famous for cleaning up

rubbish on her bike?

0:03:230:03:26

The fact that Amelia has done

something about it is

0:03:260:03:28

really, really good.

0:03:280:03:30

And Amelia's Dad

is helping out, too.

0:03:300:03:32

She likes being outside and anything

that spoils being outside,

0:03:320:03:37

like rubbish and litter,

she wants to do something about it.

0:03:370:03:43

I just thought that everyone

was good and cared about nature,

0:03:430:03:45

but apparently they do not.

0:03:450:03:46

It is getting heavy.

0:03:460:03:48

There's loads of stuff in there.

0:03:480:03:51

This rubbish does not stand

a chance, with not one,

0:03:510:03:58

but two trash girls and their gang

of helpers helping.

0:03:580:04:04

It is good.

0:04:040:04:05

I am really happy today

because I met my hero.

0:04:050:04:10

So, rubbish of Norwich, watch out,

trash girls are coming to get you!

0:04:100:04:13

The world's oldest known message

in a bottle has been

0:04:130:04:16

found after 132 years!

0:04:160:04:19

It was found by a family

in Perth in Australia.

0:04:190:04:23

Experts say it was thrown

overboard by the German Navy.

0:04:230:04:28

And was part of an experiment into

the routes boats travelled in 1886.

0:04:280:04:32

If you're off to a trampolining

party this weekend, head

0:04:320:04:34

to our guide about how to stay safe

while you are bouncing

0:04:340:04:37

around with your friends.

0:04:370:04:43

If you're a fan of squirrels.

0:04:430:04:47

Who isn't?!

0:04:470:04:49

Take our quiz - Red Versus Grey.

0:04:490:04:53

Which tests how well you know

the two different animals.

0:04:530:04:55

I was rubbish!

0:04:550:04:56

Right, I'm off for some toast!

0:04:560:04:58

I'll see you back here

in just over half an hour.
