Hello, I'm Jenny, and you are live with CBBC this Wednesday morning.

0:00:070:00:10

Coming up -

0:00:100:00:11

Johanna Konta is through to the Wimbledon semifinals.

0:00:110:00:14

The secrets of this amazing maze.

0:00:140:00:17

I'm at a very special school in the Isle of Muck in Scotland.

0:00:170:00:20

Keep watching to find out what school

0:00:200:00:21

life is like here.

0:00:210:00:22

This is Newsround!

0:00:220:00:28

First to Wimbledon - and massive congratulations

0:00:370:00:38

to Johanna Konta, who has made it through to the semifinals!

0:00:380:00:41

She came through a tough three-set match against Simona Halep

0:00:410:00:43

from Romania, who is ranked number two in the world.

0:00:430:00:47

And the amazing win means Jo is now the first British woman

0:00:470:00:50

to reach the Wimbledon semifinals since 1978.

0:00:500:00:53

And what's even more exciting is that the British number one

0:00:530:00:56

is now the favourite to win.

0:00:560:00:58

Jo says she needed to work really hard,

0:00:580:01:00

because she knew it would be a tough game.

0:01:000:01:05

I knew that going into the match against Simona, she was really not

0:01:050:01:08

going to give me much for free, so I definitely had to be the one

0:01:080:01:12

out there to create my own chances.

0:01:120:01:14

And I felt I did that.

0:01:140:01:17

And defending champion Andy Murray will be in action later on today

0:01:170:01:20

to try and secure his place in the semifinals.

0:01:200:01:23

He'll face American player Sam Querry this afternoon.

0:01:230:01:27

What's it like to have your whole school in just one class?

0:01:270:01:31

Well, on the tiny island of Muck in Scotland,

0:01:310:01:33

there's only one school, with just nine pupils.

0:01:330:01:37

Whitney went to spend a day at their school.

0:01:370:01:39

This is the only school on a tiny island called Mark, in Scotland.

0:01:390:01:40

This is the only school on a tiny island called Muck, in Scotland.

0:01:440:01:48

I'm five!

0:01:480:01:49

I'm seven.

0:01:490:01:50

Ten years old.

0:01:500:01:51

Four.

0:01:510:01:52

Six.

0:01:520:01:53

They are coming so fast.

0:01:530:01:54

Right, one, two, three, four, five, six, seven,

0:01:540:01:56

eight, nine.

0:01:560:01:57

Is that all of them?

0:01:570:01:58

Yes.

0:01:580:01:59

And there is one teacher who teaches everyone.

0:01:590:02:01

Well, it is a bit different from my school.

0:02:010:02:03

I remember there being over 20 people in one

0:02:030:02:05

class, but here, there is nine, and this is the whole school.

0:02:050:02:10

Who is the oldest?

0:02:130:02:14

You're the oldest?

0:02:140:02:15

And who's the youngest?

0:02:150:02:17

I like being the oldest because I like helping people out.

0:02:170:02:21

Like, of somebody was left out and was sad because they didn't get

0:02:210:02:23

Like, if somebody was left out and was sad because they didn't get

0:02:270:02:30

to play, I make sure that they

0:02:300:02:32

are joined in the game.

0:02:320:02:33

They do lots of lessons outside, as well as daily chores.

0:02:330:02:36

So, Jasper, what are we up to today?

0:02:360:02:37

Today we will be collecting the water for the hens

0:02:370:02:40

and giving them new water and new food.

0:02:400:02:42

We do that every day.

0:02:420:02:43

Right now we have got two hens.

0:02:430:02:44

This is Forest School!

0:02:440:02:51

We are, like, building a habitat, which is a thing

0:02:510:02:54

for an animal to fit in.

0:02:540:02:57

We are just finding it on the ground, because we

0:02:570:03:00

are not going to pick any plants, so they don't die.

0:03:000:03:04

From Forest School to another classroom, the beach.

0:03:040:03:06

But what are we doing here?

0:03:060:03:08

We are looking for birds' footprints in the

0:03:080:03:12

sand, so we can put Plaster of Paris mould on it and bring it back

0:03:120:03:18

to school to look at it and see the different shape of the foot.

0:03:180:03:25

What is the best thing about life on the island?

0:03:250:03:28

You can jump off the old pier, that one there, all the way

0:03:280:03:31

into the sea. I've done that.

0:03:310:03:34

I like living on the island because it

0:03:340:03:37

is not like a big city where loads of people know about it,

0:03:370:03:40

and it just feels really safe.

0:03:400:03:45

And take a look at this!

0:03:450:03:46

There's more to this field than meets the eye.

0:03:460:03:48

Ricky's on the case.

0:03:480:03:50

Can you solve the mystery of the maize made from, well, maize?

0:03:500:03:53

It's a curious case, but this field in Leicester has

0:03:530:03:56

a collection of mysterious pathways the size of four and

0:03:560:04:00

a half football pitches!

0:04:000:04:02

And every year it has a new design in the shape of something special.

0:04:020:04:07

It might look a bit corn-fusing up close.

0:04:070:04:12

But like every good detective,

0:04:120:04:13

you need to look at the big picture.

0:04:130:04:16

Follow the twists and turns of the case over the three

0:04:160:04:19

miles of pathways.

0:04:190:04:21

And see if you can spot a pattern emerging...

0:04:210:04:24

Elementary!

0:04:240:04:26

It's Sherlock Holmes!

0:04:260:04:29

Over the summer, the plants will grow even taller, so you can easily

0:04:290:04:33

lose your way.

0:04:330:04:35

People will be able to take on the case and solve

0:04:350:04:38

the mystery themselves when it opens to visitors in a few weeks' time.

0:04:380:04:41

A-maze-ing!

0:04:410:04:48

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.

0:04:480:04:51

0:04:510:04:54
