Afternoon all, Ayshah
here with Newsround's top stories.
The kids who get to ski at school.
Why the makers of the Peter Rabbit
film had to say sorry.
And the magic of this baby octopus.
It seems that nowhere in the world
is safe from plastic pollution.
Researchers are concerned
after finding that a huge amount
of plastic waste is now
reaching the Arctic.
From a distance these beautiful
shores on the Arctic coastline
of Norway look pristine, unspoiled.
Take a closer look and it's
a very different picture.
The plastic polluting our oceans has
now made it to the so far
relatively untouched Arctic.
Just last year I think
we tipped 30 tonnes.
Brought in household litter,
food wrapping, bottles.
One of the biggest causes of plastic
pollution in the area is fishing.
Bits of rope and netting can be
found everywhere and it's having
an impact on the local wildlife.
The rubbish comes from all
over Europe, and even
as far away as America.
I mean, you can throw things
into the ocean in Florida and think
I am throwing it away and then it
might end up here on our shores.
Bo Eide has made it his mission
to pick up as much of the litter
as he can around these
What to say?
It is so obvious what we're doing
here is like the tip of the iceberg.
This is what is readily available.
I mean, I pick up this little piece
of litter and it's gone,
it won't go out to sea again.
Now how cool is this -
children at this school
in Worcestershire get
to spend their lunch
hour learning to ski.
Not many of us get to have that
much fun on our break!
Take a look at this.
We feel quite lucky because not many
schools actually have a ski
slope to learn how to ski.
It's really unique to the school
and its really fun.
I wouldn't have tried skiing
if the school didn't have ski slope.
You can come at lunchtime.
One day I'd really like to compete
at the Winter Olympics.
I like the figure skating
because it's beautiful.
I'm looking forward to watching
the half pipe, I love
all the stunts and tricks.
I think Team GB are going
to win about 30 medals.
Eight gold medals.
Almost 16,000 people are having
problems with their flights
after an unexploded bomb
from World War Two was
found near an airport.
The 500 kilogram bomb,
which is more than 70 years old,
was discovered by divers
in the River Thames in London.
All flights to and from
London City Airport have been
cancelled or moved to other
airports, while specialists begin
to remove the bomb safely.
The makers of the new film
Peter Rabbit have said sorry
after some charities and parents
weren't happy with a scene involving
a character with an allergy.
A scene in the film - not this one -
shows Tom McGregor who has
a blackberry allergy being pelted
with the fruit by a gang of bunnies.
In a joint statement,
Sony Pictures and the filmmakers say
they regret not being more aware
and sensitive to the issue of food
allergies and shouldn't have
made a joke of them.
Now we think this could
be a Newsround first.
Take a look at this amazing video
of a baby octopus being born!
And then the best bit.
As it wriggles out of the egg it
changes colour instantly!
Let's see it again.
It was born at the Virginia
Aquarium in the US.
Wonder if this little chap's
"I-tentacle" to its mum?
