First up, rescue teams are flying into the parts of the Caribbean

:00:11.:00:16.

to help people who have been seriously affected by storm Irma -

:00:17.:00:23.

especially on the islands of San Martine and Barbuda.

:00:24.:00:25.

These French firemen are flying in later today.

:00:26.:00:27.

Irma is the strongest Hurricane ever to hit land and the wind and rain

:00:28.:00:30.

Lots of people have lost their homes and will need shelter and food.

:00:31.:00:37.

In nearby Florida people are evacuating, in case

:00:38.:00:39.

This week has been a time of celebration for people

:00:40.:00:47.

The Queensferry Crossing has finally opened and some school kids have had

:00:48.:00:53.

The Queensferry Crossing cost ?1.35 million to build. 1.7 miles long.

:00:54.:01:16.

Connecting Edinburgh with Fife, and will carry 24 million vehicles a

:01:17.:01:19.

year. Pretty important bridge. To open this week with a very important

:01:20.:01:23.

guest. The Queen. Celebrations happening all week. 10,000 kids from

:01:24.:01:29.

schools nearby have been invited to be some of the first people to walk

:01:30.:01:37.

across the bridge. I went with them. I am excited about going over the

:01:38.:01:41.

bridge. Looking out your window and seeing the bridge there, thinking I

:01:42.:01:45.

remember what this was like when this bridge was not there. Pretty

:01:46.:01:51.

amazing. My Nan and Papa live on the top of the hill, they have a window.

:01:52.:01:57.

They can watch it being built. They have watched every step of it. Off

:01:58.:02:01.

we go. Just a short drive to the bridge. We are going on the big

:02:02.:02:10.

bridge. Excited?. Seems like it will be so boring. But then it is so

:02:11.:02:18.

exciting. About halfway across the brand-new Queensferry Bridge. As you

:02:19.:02:23.

can see, nice Scottish weather. That does not matter these guys are quite

:02:24.:02:30.

excited. We met the Queen yesterday. It was awesome. What was it like

:02:31.:02:36.

being on the bridge? It was cool, I liked it. Nice to have the

:02:37.:02:39.

experience of the bridge opening now, I'm young, can remember this

:02:40.:02:41.

forever and ever. They were excited. Prince George has been

:02:42.:02:45.

having his first day at school. Here's the Royal four

:02:46.:02:47.

year old arriving at the Thomas's Battersey School

:02:48.:02:50.

in South London. He was dropped off by his

:02:51.:02:52.

Dad, Prince William. But his Mum missed it

:02:53.:02:54.

as she's not very well! Wonder if they made him take

:02:55.:02:57.

the dreaded first-day-at-school It's not just kids in the UK back

:02:58.:02:59.

at school, children around the world Here's one school in Pakistan

:03:00.:03:04.

that's a little different. Kids in Karachi, Pakistan. Getting

:03:05.:03:19.

on with their lessons. This is not a regular kind of school. It has been

:03:20.:03:26.

made right over a flyover, next to some busy roads. It might seem basic

:03:27.:03:32.

and noisy to working. Without it, these kids would not have anywhere

:03:33.:03:36.

else to go to school. That is because while most kids in the UK

:03:37.:03:42.

have lessons, these children used to have to work to earn money, to help

:03:43.:03:47.

their families make ends meet. TRANSLATION: I used to have this

:03:48.:03:50.

week, mock and asked other people's houses. My dad died, my mum said I

:03:51.:03:57.

needed to work. TRANSLATION: At first my mum would not let me come.

:03:58.:04:03.

I said I wanted to study. She said, no, I need to work. Since I learned

:04:04.:04:08.

to read and write my mum is very happy. As well as a free education,

:04:09.:04:12.

pupils get free lunch and school uniform. They get paid to attend. To

:04:13.:04:17.

make up for the money they would have earned if they were working

:04:18.:04:22.

instead. It is hoped schools like this will allow the poorest children

:04:23.:04:29.

in Pakistan to get an education, hopefully getting better jobs when

:04:30.:04:30.

they give up. Just time to show you a few

:04:31.:04:31.

of the craziest Guinness world Meet Cygnus, he's the record

:04:32.:04:33.

holder for the cat with the longest tail -

:04:34.:04:38.

Purrrfect! Here's Benny Harlem,

:04:39.:04:39.

the man with the tallest hair - it takes two hours to brush it,

:04:40.:04:42.

make sure it's looking good Benny! And this is Alistair Moffat breaking

:04:43.:04:45.

the record for driving a car though That's all from me,

:04:46.:04:48.

Newsround's back at 7.20. Woody? What? All the kids are

:04:49.:05:01.
