Morning, I'm Ricky.

0:00:120:00:13

And this is Newsround.

0:00:130:00:15

First up, and most importantly,

today is Shrove Tuesday!

0:00:150:00:18

And that means pancakes!

0:00:180:00:20

Here's our guide to making

some flipping good ones!

0:00:200:00:25

Feeling peckish this Pancake Day?

0:00:250:00:26

We've got you covered.

0:00:260:00:28

Grab your ingredients...

0:00:280:00:32

Get sieving.

0:00:320:00:35

Break your eggs into the mixture.

0:00:420:00:48

Now mix it all together.

0:00:480:00:50

Keep mixing.

0:00:500:00:57

Add some to your pancake mixture.

0:00:580:01:06

Mmm!

0:01:250:01:29

And don't forget to eat one...

0:01:290:01:29

Or two, or three!

0:01:290:01:32

I love pancakes!

0:01:320:01:39

Lemon and sugar every time!

0:01:390:01:41

Now time to check in on what's been

happening at the Winter

0:01:410:01:44

Olympics in PyeongChang.

0:01:440:01:45

American snowboarding

superstar Chloe Kim won gold

0:01:450:01:47

in the women's half-pipe.

0:01:470:01:48

The 17-year-old, whose parents

are from South Korea,

0:01:480:01:50

claimed victory with a huge score

of 98.25 out of 100.

0:01:500:01:52

Short-track speed skater

Elise Christie is back

0:01:520:01:54

in action later this morning.

0:01:540:01:56

She is one of Britain's best

chances of a gold medal

0:01:560:01:59

at this year's games.

0:01:590:02:00

The quarter finals in

the women's 500 metres gets

0:02:000:02:02

underway at 10 o'clock.

0:02:020:02:05

And the windy weather in South Korea

is continuing to cause

0:02:050:02:08

problems for some sports.

0:02:080:02:09

This was a Russian athlete

crashing out in the combined

0:02:090:02:11

alpine skiing event.

0:02:110:02:14

Good news is that he is OK!

0:02:140:02:19

Sticking with winter sports

and how cool is this -

0:02:190:02:22

children at this school

in Worcestershire get

0:02:220:02:24

to spend their lunch

hour learning to ski!

0:02:240:02:27

Not many of us get to have that

much fun on our break!

0:02:270:02:30

Plus they're all fans

of the Winter Olympics.

0:02:300:02:32

Let's take a look.

0:02:320:02:35

I feel quite lucky, because not very

many schools actually have a ski

0:02:500:02:53

slope to learn how to ski on.

0:02:530:02:56

It's really unique to the school,

and it's really fun.

0:02:560:02:59

Wouldn't have, probably,

skied if the school

0:02:590:03:01

hadn't had a ski slope.

0:03:010:03:03

You can come at lunch

times and practice.

0:03:030:03:07

One day I'd really like to compete

in the Winter Olympics.

0:03:070:03:10

I like the figure skating

because it's, like, really beautiful

0:03:100:03:12

and it's like dancing.

0:03:120:03:15

I'm looking forward

to watching the half pipe.

0:03:150:03:18

I love all the stunts and tricks.

0:03:180:03:21

I think Team GB are going

to win about 30 medals.

0:03:210:03:24

Five golds.

0:03:240:03:25

Eight gold medals.

0:03:250:03:28

Now, what weighs one trillion tonnes

and is a quarter the size of Wales

0:03:290:03:33

and four times bigger than London?

0:03:330:03:35

Well, there's a massive

clue right behind me...

0:03:350:03:37

Let's find out why scientists

are so interested.

0:03:370:03:42

This is the first video

of a massive iceberg which broke

0:03:420:03:45

off from the continent

of Antarctica last year.

0:03:450:03:48

The British Antarctic Survey has

captured the footage of the berg,

0:03:480:03:51

which is called A-68.

0:03:510:03:55

A-68 is one of the biggest

icebergs ever recorded,

0:03:550:04:00

but it only made up 10% of the ice

shelf it left behind.

0:04:000:04:04

It weighs one trillion tonnes

and is around 200 metres thick.

0:04:040:04:10

It measures over 6000 square

kilometres, that's four times

0:04:100:04:12

the size of London and a quarter

of the size of Wales.

0:04:120:04:18

The video's been released as a team

of scientists get ready

0:04:180:04:20

for an urgent mission.

0:04:200:04:23

They are going to spend three

weeks investigating life

0:04:230:04:25

underneath the ice shelf.

0:04:250:04:28

What's beneath has been hidden

for up to 120,000 years.

0:04:280:04:32

It was only exposed when the giant

iceberg drifted away.

0:04:320:04:36

It's an urgent mission because it

might change as sunlight starts

0:04:360:04:39

to alter the surface of the sea.

0:04:390:04:43

They'll collect sea

animals, microbes,

0:04:430:04:44

plankton and water samples.

0:04:440:04:47

New species are also likely to be

discovered - now that's cool!

0:04:470:04:54

Cheers for watching.

0:04:540:04:55

I'm back at around 8:20am.
