Hello, I'm Jenny and this is your wednesday morning news update.

:00:00.:00:07.

Johanna Konta is through to the Wimbledon semi finals.

:00:08.:00:13.

I'm a very special school in Scotland. Keep watching to find out

:00:14.:00:24.

what school life is like here. First to massive news

:00:25.:00:35.

from Wimbledon, and Johanna Konta She's gone further in the singles

:00:36.:00:37.

than any British woman It's hard to think that

:00:38.:00:42.

Johanna Konta had only won one match Now, after her nail-biting victory

:00:43.:00:51.

over Simona Halep, she's just two I've always believed in my own

:00:52.:00:59.

ability, and I've always dreamt big, but I don't give myself

:01:00.:01:05.

too much time to dream. She lost the first

:01:06.:01:10.

set on a tie-break. Not playing badly, she just needed

:01:11.:01:16.

to find a winning combination. Relying on a powerful serve

:01:17.:01:21.

and a booming backhand seemed It worked, and she came back

:01:22.:01:23.

to win the second set, so it went to a third set

:01:24.:01:29.

to decide the match. Inside Centre Court,

:01:30.:01:34.

they tried to raise the roof. Outside, a little rain wasn't

:01:35.:01:37.

going to stop the celebrations. She had done it - the first British

:01:38.:01:43.

woman into the semifinals since The former champion

:01:44.:01:46.

was in the crowd to watch. Konte is now the favourite to win,

:01:47.:01:51.

but standing in her way tomorrow is five-time champion

:01:52.:01:56.

Venus Williams, but first, a quick selfie with new fans

:01:57.:01:59.

and a few older ones, too. Awesome news, congratulations,

:02:00.:02:07.

Johanna Konta. And defending champion Andy Murray

:02:08.:02:09.

will be in action later on today to try and secure his place

:02:10.:02:12.

in the semi finals. He'll face American player

:02:13.:02:15.

Sam Querry this afternoon. What's it like to have your whole

:02:16.:02:17.

school in just one class? Well, on the tiny island of Muck

:02:18.:02:22.

in Scotland there's only one This is the only school on a tiny

:02:23.:02:25.

island called Muck, in Scotland. Right, one, two, three,

:02:26.:02:35.

four, five, six, seven, And there is one teacher

:02:36.:02:44.

who teaches everyone. Well, it is a bit

:02:45.:02:50.

different from my school. I remember there being

:02:51.:02:52.

over 20 people in one class, but here, there's nine,

:02:53.:03:00.

and this is the whole school. I like being the oldest

:03:01.:03:02.

because I like helping people out. Like, if somebody was left out

:03:03.:03:13.

and was sad because they didn't get to play, I make sure

:03:14.:03:19.

that they are joined in the game. They do lots of lessons outside,

:03:20.:03:22.

as well as daily chores. Today we will be collecting

:03:23.:03:24.

the water for the hens and giving them new

:03:25.:03:29.

water and new food. We're, like, building

:03:30.:03:31.

a habitat, which is a thing We're just finding it

:03:32.:03:45.

on the ground, because we are not going to pick any

:03:46.:03:51.

plants, so they don't die. From Forest School to another

:03:52.:03:54.

classroom, the beach. We are looking for birds'

:03:55.:03:56.

footprints in the sand, so we can put Plaster of Paris

:03:57.:04:03.

mould on it and bring it back to school to look at it and see

:04:04.:04:08.

the different shape of the foot. What is the best thing

:04:09.:04:15.

about life on the island? You can jump off the old pier,

:04:16.:04:19.

that one there, all the way into the sea.

:04:20.:04:22.

I've done that. I like living on the

:04:23.:04:24.

island because it is not like a big city where loads

:04:25.:04:28.

of people know about it, There's more to this

:04:29.:04:31.

field than meets the eye. Can you solve the mystery

:04:32.:04:39.

of the maze made from... It's a curious case,

:04:40.:04:43.

but this field of Leicester has a collection of mysterious pathways

:04:44.:04:48.

the size of four and a half football pitches, and every year

:04:49.:04:52.

it has a new design, It might look a bit

:04:53.:04:54.

corn-fusing up close, but like every good detective,

:04:55.:05:04.

you need to look at the big picture. Follow the twists and turns

:05:05.:05:07.

of the case over the three miles of pathways, and see if you can spot

:05:08.:05:11.

a pattern emerging. Over the summer the plants

:05:12.:05:14.

will grow even taller, People will be able to take

:05:15.:05:22.

on the case and solve the mystery themselves when it opens to visitors

:05:23.:05:28.

in a few weeks' time. And for loads more amazing stories

:05:29.:05:31.

go online, take a look at some incredible drone photographs,

:05:32.:05:45.

find out all about the new Lion King live-action film, and,

:05:46.:05:48.

if you like animals, you can see the whale

:05:49.:05:50.

and dolphins playing around. That's all from me, Newsround's

:05:51.:05:52.

back with Ricky at 4.20. Things are getting galactic

:05:53.:05:56.

in brand-new Little Roy next. Yeah. Do

:05:57.:06:10.

you remember when I called you, like, "I've just seen a massive

:06:11.:06:13.

UFO"?
