Hi, I'm Ricky.

0:00:170:00:18

Coming up on Newsround.

0:00:180:00:19

Schools are shut by snow again!

0:00:190:00:21

The Japanese volcano

blowing its top.

0:00:210:00:22

And we meet some very

curious penguins.

0:00:220:00:30

First up, it might be March 8th,

0:00:330:00:35

but there's been more snow

today in parts of the UK!

0:00:350:00:38

Part of North Wales, Yorkshire,

Lancashire and Merseyside

0:00:380:00:39

are just a few of the places

which had to shut schools

0:00:390:00:42

because of the snow.

0:00:420:00:43

Which only means one thing.

0:00:430:00:47

Snow day.

0:00:470:00:50

Hi, I'm Aila.

0:00:500:00:51

And I'm Ivy.

0:00:510:00:52

And we live in Leeds.

0:00:520:00:54

Our school is closed today

so we've been sledging!

0:00:540:01:02

School sent us a message and it

said school is closed.

0:01:100:01:14

We've decided to go

outside and play.

0:01:140:01:17

We made a snowman

and had a snow fight.

0:01:170:01:25

Thanks for all of those.

0:01:260:01:28

Today is International Women's Day -

a day to celebrate the amazing

0:01:280:01:30

achievements of women

all over the world.

0:01:300:01:32

We spoke to a group of women who've

achieved some incredible

0:01:320:01:38

things, to see what advice they had

for young girls growing up today.

0:01:380:01:41

Take a look at this.

0:01:410:01:43

Hi, Newsround.

0:01:430:01:44

Hello everybody there at Newsround.

0:01:440:01:45

My advice for all of you young girls

watching Newsround right now is...

0:01:450:01:48

For International Women's Day

we spoke to six amazing women.

0:01:480:01:54

Millie, Lauren, Anita and Yasmin,

Kimberley and Ellie to see

0:01:540:01:56

what they had to say.

0:01:560:01:58

Being a girl can be

difficult in so many ways.

0:01:580:02:01

I feel like there's one major

challenge that maybe some

0:02:010:02:04

of you that are watching Newsround

might have faced and

0:02:040:02:06

that is comparison.

0:02:060:02:07

You shouldn't compare

yourself to anyone else.

0:02:070:02:11

We live in a crazy selfie generation

and there's so much pressure put

0:02:110:02:14

on the way that you look and the way

that you present yourself that

0:02:140:02:17

sometimes the really good stuff

that's going to make you soar

0:02:170:02:20

and make dreams come

true gets overlooked.

0:02:200:02:26

So, I'm 17, a year away

from being an adult officially,

0:02:260:02:29

and I would give the advice

to my younger self

0:02:290:02:31

of just not being scared.

0:02:310:02:38

Not mind so much about

what other people say

0:02:380:02:40

about you or think about your ideas.

0:02:400:02:42

Don't let anyone hold you back.

0:02:420:02:43

We are all individuals,

we all have different lives.

0:02:430:02:45

I think you have that one life,

you've got to live it and you've

0:02:450:02:49

just got to enjoy everything you do.

0:02:490:02:52

The way you dress,

the music you listen to,

0:02:520:02:54

the things you write about,

the things you read, they're

0:02:540:02:56

personal to you and if they're

important

0:02:560:02:58

to you, they're important.

0:02:580:02:59

Don't worry so much

about fitting in with

0:02:590:03:01

everybody else, just stick

to

0:03:010:03:02

what you're doing.

0:03:020:03:03

You're pretty cool.

0:03:030:03:04

You can always do it.

0:03:040:03:05

You can do it.

0:03:050:03:06

Just do it!

0:03:060:03:07

Just keep your eyes on the prize.

0:03:070:03:10

Stop caring what other people think.

0:03:100:03:13

Happy

International

Women's Day,

Newsround!

0:03:130:03:20

Great advice for everyone.

0:03:200:03:23

Next, it's six months

since Hurricane Irma swept

0:03:230:03:25

across the Caribbean islands.

0:03:250:03:26

It was the worst hurricane

there's ever been.

0:03:260:03:27

BBC reporter Paul Blake is visiting

the British Virgin Islands to find

0:03:270:03:30

out how the area's recovering.

0:03:300:03:32

Hey, Newsround.

0:03:320:03:34

Over the last six months

people here in the British

0:03:340:03:42

Virgin Islands have been busy

rebuilding and cleaning up after

0:03:440:03:46

Hurricane Irma.

0:03:460:03:47

The hurricane spread a lot of debris

and rubbish all across the

0:03:470:03:51

islands, bits of people's houses,

their boats, their cars.

0:03:510:03:53

And workers have been

busy collecting it and

0:03:530:03:56

moving it to a dump

away from other people.

0:03:560:03:59

But a lot of houses and offices

are still heavily damaged

0:03:590:04:01

and the builders are working every

day to try to repair them.

0:04:010:04:04

Meanwhile all the schoolkids

are back in class,

0:04:040:04:06

but many are attending schools that

are not their own because their

0:04:060:04:09

classrooms are still damaged.

0:04:090:04:10

A lot of people here

hope the workers can

0:04:100:04:13

begin to repair some

of the school buildings soon.

0:04:130:04:15

A lot of progress has been made

in the British Virgin Islands,

0:04:150:04:18

but there is still

a lot of work to do.

0:04:180:04:20

The next hurricane season begins in

less than three months, and people

0:04:200:04:23

here say they want to be as prepared

as possible for the next storm.

0:04:230:04:27

Now it's not often you see a volcano

really blow its top.

0:04:270:04:29

But check this out!

0:04:290:04:32

These explosive eruptions are coming

from Mount Shinmoedake

0:04:320:04:34

in southwestern Japan.

0:04:340:04:36

It's the volcano's first major

eruption in seven years.

0:04:360:04:41

Incredible!

0:04:410:04:47

And check out these nosey

penguins in Antarctica.

0:04:470:04:49

The camera was left

on the ice by an explorer

0:04:490:04:51

who was part of an expedition team.

0:04:510:04:53

And the penguins just

couldn't help themselves -

0:04:530:04:55

posing for a bit of a selfie

down the lens.

0:04:550:04:57

Look at them

having a good old nosey!

0:04:570:04:59

That's it from us.
