Hi guys, Ricky here with your big stories this Friday.

:00:00.:00:00.

And, Jo Konta waves goodbye to Wimbeldon.

:00:07.:00:27.

First up to Wimbledon - and Britain's number one

:00:28.:00:29.

Johanna Konta is out of the competition.

:00:30.:00:31.

Ayshah's in London now to tell us what happened.

:00:32.:00:35.

Hi, Ricky. Yes, Jo Konta was on that Centre Court yesterday and went

:00:36.:00:43.

further than any other British female for almost 40 years and she

:00:44.:00:47.

was the favourite in that match against Venus Williams, but

:00:48.:00:50.

unfortunately it wasn't meant to be. Here is what happened.

:00:51.:00:59.

Hopes were sky-high for Johanna Konta but this was the moment her

:01:00.:01:01.

She was playing against American Venus

:01:02.:01:09.

Williams who has won this competition five times in the past,

:01:10.:01:11.

so it was never going to be an easy match.

:01:12.:01:17.

Venus's powerful serve and years of experience performing at

:01:18.:01:26.

the top level proved too much for Konta.

:01:27.:01:28.

She lost the first set and after that never managed

:01:29.:01:30.

That is the first blow to Venus Williams.

:01:31.:01:43.

All the credit has to go to Venus and the way she

:01:44.:01:46.

She really just dictated the match from

:01:47.:01:51.

the very beginning until the very end.

:01:52.:01:52.

So I had very few chances to get a good foothold in the match,

:01:53.:01:56.

and again when I did have those chances she did very well to take

:01:57.:01:59.

Although she didn't win she's proved she is among the world's best

:02:00.:02:04.

and we're pretty sure this won't be the last we see of Johanna Konta.

:02:05.:02:09.

So, disappointment but there's plenty more

:02:10.:02:16.

action here at Wimbledon - later today is the men's

:02:17.:02:23.

semi-finals - and I'll be right back

:02:24.:02:25.

Yes, keep watching Johanna Konta, great things to come.

:02:26.:02:32.

Next up, to kids at a school in London that

:02:33.:02:34.

has a new playground, that you can eat!

:02:35.:02:36.

As part of an eco-project and to encourage healthy eating,

:02:37.:02:38.

the school has created a vegetable garden that the kids look

:02:39.:02:41.

Here's what some pupils there think about it.

:02:42.:02:44.

Usually I used to like eat KFC and all that.

:02:45.:02:47.

And then now that I joined this gardening team I'm starting to

:02:48.:02:49.

Some of us, we live in flats or tower blocks and

:02:50.:02:54.

things like that so it's a great opportunity

:02:55.:02:56.

for us just to learn, so

:02:57.:02:58.

when we are later on in life we will know

:02:59.:03:01.

how to do it and then we will

:03:02.:03:03.

be like thank you, I'm so glad we had this

:03:04.:03:05.

gardening in school, I

:03:06.:03:10.

really did appreciate it, it really did help me.

:03:11.:03:12.

It makes me want to have more fresh and organic food

:03:13.:03:15.

than the normal processed, and it's a chance for you to try out

:03:16.:03:18.

Instead of always buying fruits and stuff you

:03:19.:03:21.

can plant them and then you get to take them and even yourself.

:03:22.:03:32.

This gardening experience has helped both of us and our families so it's

:03:33.:03:42.

really nice and other people who don't get this opportunity should

:03:43.:03:46.

have this. This is really good. This is one of the best things you can

:03:47.:03:48.

do. Now, growing things

:03:49.:03:49.

at school isn't unusual - and we want to hear

:03:50.:03:52.

from you about what you like growing at school or at home -

:03:53.:03:55.

plants, vegetables or just flowers? And do you think growing healthy

:03:56.:03:58.

food is a good idea? Next up, she's big,

:03:59.:04:00.

blue and a bit boney. The Natural History Museum in London

:04:01.:04:07.

has a new star resident. DP, you might have spotted him on a

:04:08.:04:21.

school trip, the diplodocus has been the rock star of the Natural History

:04:22.:04:28.

Museum for nearly 40 years. -- Dippy. But now it's out with the old

:04:29.:04:37.

and in with the blue. Meet Hope, the balaenoptera musculus, better known

:04:38.:04:40.

as a blue whale, the largest animal on Earth, weighing up to 200 tonnes,

:04:41.:04:45.

almost 30 African elements and measuring in at a lengthy 30 metres,

:04:46.:04:50.

or two double-decker buses if you prefer. The lower jawbone is the

:04:51.:04:53.

largest single bone to be grown by any organism on the planet. And they

:04:54.:05:01.

can live to well over 100 years, that's a whaley long time. They were

:05:02.:05:05.

hunted almost to extinction in the 1900 but were also one of the first

:05:06.:05:10.

species humans decided to save, so by introducing Hope the museum wants

:05:11.:05:13.

visitors to think more about protecting animals and not just

:05:14.:05:17.

their history. Look at the size of this space, we wanted something

:05:18.:05:21.

large and impressive and Hope fills that for us and she will inspire

:05:22.:05:25.

people and looks gorgeous. It's taken the team months to put

:05:26.:05:31.

together Hope's 221 bones and had to use special technologies like a 3D

:05:32.:05:35.

printers and work with teams of engineers and conservationists. But,

:05:36.:05:41.

don't worry if you missed Dippy, he is set for his first UK tour to

:05:42.:05:44.

visit the fans early next year. It's the Royal International

:05:45.:05:45.

Air Tattoo this weekend And take a look at this -

:05:46.:05:47.

this is what it's like to fly inside one of the famous

:05:48.:05:51.

Red Arrows planes. They have been getting some practice

:05:52.:05:53.

in ahead of their big show. That's all from me,

:05:54.:05:56.

Newsround's back at 4:20pm. There's something fishy going

:05:57.:06:00.
