Hello, I'm Jenny, and you are live with CBBC this Wednesday morning.
Coming up -
Johanna Konta is through to the Wimbledon semifinals.
The secrets of this amazing maze.
I'm at a very special school in the Isle of Muck in Scotland.
Keep watching to find out what school
life is like here.
This is Newsround!
First to Wimbledon - and massive congratulations
to Johanna Konta, who has made it through to the semifinals!
She came through a tough three-set match against Simona Halep
from Romania, who is ranked number two in the world.
And the amazing win means Jo is now the first British woman
to reach the Wimbledon semifinals since 1978.
And what's even more exciting is that the British number one
is now the favourite to win.
Jo says she needed to work really hard,
because she knew it would be a tough game.
I knew that going into the match against Simona, she was really not
going to give me much for free, so I definitely had to be the one
out there to create my own chances.
And I felt I did that.
And defending champion Andy Murray will be in action later on today
to try and secure his place in the semifinals.
He'll face American player Sam Querry this afternoon.
What's it like to have your whole school in just one class?
Well, on the tiny island of Muck in Scotland,
there's only one school, with just nine pupils.
Whitney went to spend a day at their school.
This is the only school on a tiny island called Mark, in Scotland.
This is the only school on a tiny island called Muck, in Scotland.
Ten years old.
They are coming so fast.
Right, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
Is that all of them?
And there is one teacher who teaches everyone.
Well, it is a bit different from my school.
I remember there being over 20 people in one
class, but here, there is nine, and this is the whole school.
Who is the oldest?
You're the oldest?
And who's the youngest?
I like being the oldest because I like helping people out.
Like, of somebody was left out and was sad because they didn't get
Like, if somebody was left out and was sad because they didn't get
to play, I make sure that they
are joined in the game.
They do lots of lessons outside, as well as daily chores.
So, Jasper, what are we up to today?
Today we will be collecting the water for the hens
and giving them new water and new food.
We do that every day.
Right now we have got two hens.
This is Forest School!
We are, like, building a habitat, which is a thing
for an animal to fit in.
We are just finding it on the ground, because we
are not going to pick any plants, so they don't die.
From Forest School to another classroom, the beach.
But what are we doing here?
We are looking for birds' footprints in the
sand, so we can put Plaster of Paris mould on it and bring it back
to school to look at it and see the different shape of the foot.
What is the best thing about life on the island?
You can jump off the old pier, that one there, all the way
into the sea. I've done that.
I like living on the island because it
is not like a big city where loads of people know about it,
and it just feels really safe.
And take a look at this!
There's more to this field than meets the eye.
Ricky's on the case.
Can you solve the mystery of the maize made from, well, maize?
It's a curious case, but this field in Leicester has
a collection of mysterious pathways the size of four and
a half football pitches!
And every year it has a new design in the shape of something special.
It might look a bit corn-fusing up close.
But like every good detective,
you need to look at the big picture.
Follow the twists and turns of the case over the three
miles of pathways.
And see if you can spot a pattern emerging...
It's Sherlock Holmes!
Over the summer, the plants will grow even taller, so you can easily
lose your way.
People will be able to take on the case and solve
the mystery themselves when it opens to visitors in a few weeks' time.
That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.

of the day's stories.
