Ricky here with your first
Newsround update of the day.
Here's what we've got for you:
We find out how the
moon ended up here.
And forget man of the match,
how about cat of the match?
First to football, and Chelsea have
become the third English team to be
knocked out of the Champions League
in the last sixteen.
They were beaten 3-0 away
to Barcelona, thanks to two goals
from one of the game's greatest
players, Lionel Messi.
That took his Champions League
goal tally to 100.
Just Manchester City and Liverpool
are left in the quarterfinals now.
Here's what Chelsea
manager Antonio Conte had
to say about the defeat.
Our start was terrible.
To concede a goal
after only two minutes.
But after this, I think
we tried to play football.
For a long time,
we dominated the game.
We created chances to score.
Meanwhile, England manager
Gareth Southgate will annouce his
squad later for two friendly games
ahead of the World Cup this summer.
But it won't include Harry Kane!
The Premier League's joint top
scorer has an ankle injury.
He now has a battle to be fit
for England at the summer's
World Cup in Russia.
Now, you'll be used to seeing sights
like this in the night sky,
but what if I told you you could see
the moon close up inside
a building in Leicester?
Luckily, Ayshah is
here to explain more.
It's not a sight you see
everyday in a cathedral,
a huge replica of the moon hanging
from the ceiling, but it's
here at Leicester Cathedral this
week to mark British Science Week.
These school children from Leicester
have been to check it out.
We have been looking at the moon,
which is incredible.
It is really, really nice how...
It is just an incredible
thing to look at.
I like looking at the moon
because it is really big and it's
got loads and loads of craters.
It looks like it would be really
hard to count them all.
I didn't actually know
that there was an icy bit.
It is bigger than I expected.
We have been laying down under
the moon, trying to find
the smallest crater.
And that is the size of Leicester.
I find it enjoyable
to learn about science.
The moon was made by an artist
in the UK called Luke Jerram.
It's seven metres wide
and he studied NASA images
of the moon's surface in detail
to help him make the replica.
Suzie is a scientist and is running
activities for children.
She wants more people
to get into science.
I'm here today because
I love space science.
My advice to anyone out
there who is interested in science
is to study hard at school and also
do lots of other activities
in your spare time.
And who knows?
One of you watching could be
the next person that goes
to the moon or even on to Mars.
The moon is in Leicester
until the end of the week, before it
continues on its world tour.
Its next stop, the Commonwealth
Games in Australia!
Next, how cool would it be
if your classroom looked like this?
These kids in Japan are taking part
in a year-long project to see
what it's like to learn
in a digital classroom.
They've ditched books, pens
and paper and swapped them for light
projectors and touch-screens.
You can write on the desks and then
share your work with the teacher.
And at the end of the lesson, rub it
all out or save it to the Cloud.
Well, there's something else that's
pretty cool happening in classrooms
accross the UK today.
Have you ever though about becoming
a journalist like me?
Many of you are doing just that.
It's School Report day,
a BBC journalism project
which encourages kids
like you to learn about the news
and to find and make
your own news stories.
Today, young people get to show
what they've been working
on for the last few months.
One thing School Report is focusing
on this year is fake news.
Head online to see what some school
reporters had to say about it.
And while you're there,
check out the gold-medal winner
who's hoping to inspire more girls
to take up karate.
Finally, a pitch invasion
with a difference in
a Champions League game last night.
This ginger cat surprised players
by appearing in the 49th minute
of the match between Besktas
and Bayern Munich.
He leapt from one of the advertising
hoardings onto the pitch,
briefly stopping the game.
Meow did he get there?!
That's your lot for now.
I'm back with with
more in half an hour.
Enjoy your breakfast.
See you soon.
