Afternoon all, Ayshah

here with Newsround's top stories.

0:00:050:00:09

The kids who get to ski at school.

0:00:090:00:11

Why the makers of the Peter Rabbit

film had to say sorry.

0:00:110:00:14

And the magic of this baby octopus.

0:00:140:00:22

It seems that nowhere in the world

is safe from plastic pollution.

0:00:280:00:31

Researchers are concerned

after finding that a huge amount

0:00:310:00:33

of plastic waste is now

reaching the Arctic.

0:00:330:00:35

Here's Ricky.

0:00:350:00:40

From a distance these beautiful

shores on the Arctic coastline

0:00:400:00:43

of Norway look pristine, unspoiled.

0:00:430:00:48

Take a closer look and it's

a very different picture.

0:00:480:00:53

The plastic polluting our oceans has

now made it to the so far

0:00:530:00:56

relatively untouched Arctic.

0:00:560:01:00

Just last year I think

we tipped 30 tonnes.

0:01:000:01:04

Brought in household litter,

food wrapping, bottles.

0:01:040:01:10

One of the biggest causes of plastic

pollution in the area is fishing.

0:01:100:01:14

Bits of rope and netting can be

found everywhere and it's having

0:01:140:01:16

an impact on the local wildlife.

0:01:160:01:23

The rubbish comes from all

over Europe, and even

0:01:230:01:25

as far away as America.

0:01:250:01:28

I mean, you can throw things

into the ocean in Florida and think

0:01:280:01:31

I am throwing it away and then it

might end up here on our shores.

0:01:310:01:37

Bo Eide has made it his mission

to pick up as much of the litter

0:01:370:01:41

as he can around these

Norwegian fjords.

0:01:410:01:45

What to say?

0:01:450:01:46

It is so obvious what we're doing

here is like the tip of the iceberg.

0:01:460:01:50

This is what is readily available.

0:01:500:01:53

I mean, I pick up this little piece

of litter and it's gone,

0:01:530:01:59

it won't go out to sea again.

0:01:590:02:01

It helps.

0:02:010:02:09

Now how cool is this -

children at this school

0:02:090:02:11

in Worcestershire get

to spend their lunch

0:02:110:02:13

hour learning to ski.

0:02:130:02:14

Not many of us get to have that

much fun on our break!

0:02:140:02:17

Take a look at this.

0:02:170:02:20

We feel quite lucky because not many

schools actually have a ski

0:02:390:02:42

slope to learn how to ski.

0:02:420:02:46

It's really unique to the school

and its really fun.

0:02:460:02:48

I wouldn't have tried skiing

if the school didn't have ski slope.

0:02:480:02:53

You can come at lunchtime.

0:02:530:02:54

One day I'd really like to compete

at the Winter Olympics.

0:02:540:03:01

I like the figure skating

because it's beautiful.

0:03:010:03:03

I'm looking forward to watching

the half pipe, I love

0:03:030:03:06

all the stunts and tricks.

0:03:060:03:07

I think Team GB are going

to win about 30 medals.

0:03:070:03:10

Five gold.

0:03:100:03:11

Eight gold medals.

0:03:110:03:15

Almost 16,000 people are having

problems with their flights

0:03:150:03:17

after an unexploded bomb

from World War Two was

0:03:170:03:19

found near an airport.

0:03:190:03:20

The 500 kilogram bomb,

which is more than 70 years old,

0:03:200:03:23

was discovered by divers

in the River Thames in London.

0:03:230:03:25

All flights to and from

London City Airport have been

0:03:250:03:28

cancelled or moved to other

airports, while specialists begin

0:03:280:03:30

to remove the bomb safely.

0:03:300:03:36

The makers of the new film

Peter Rabbit have said sorry

0:03:360:03:39

after some charities and parents

weren't happy with a scene involving

0:03:390:03:42

a character with an allergy.

0:03:420:03:47

A scene in the film - not this one -

shows Tom McGregor who has

0:03:470:03:51

a blackberry allergy being pelted

with the fruit by a gang of bunnies.

0:03:510:03:55

In a joint statement,

Sony Pictures and the filmmakers say

0:03:550:03:58

they regret not being more aware

and sensitive to the issue of food

0:03:580:04:01

allergies and shouldn't have

made a joke of them.

0:04:010:04:08

Now we think this could

be a Newsround first.

0:04:080:04:10

Take a look at this amazing video

of a baby octopus being born!

0:04:100:04:14

And then the best bit.

0:04:140:04:15

As it wriggles out of the egg it

changes colour instantly!

0:04:150:04:20

Fantastic!

0:04:200:04:22

Let's see it again.

0:04:220:04:28

We can't!

0:04:280:04:29

It was born at the Virginia

Aquarium in the US.

0:04:290:04:31

Wonder if this little chap's

"I-tentacle" to its mum?

0:04:310:04:35
