Hi, Ricky here, with
your Newsround update.
Football first, and Chelsea have
become the third English team to be
knocked out of the Champions League
in the last 16.
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 quarter finals 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.
Colombia in South America has
the biggest number of bird
species on the planet.
And one ten-year-old has made
it his mission to find them all.
Ayshah's got this one.
There is one.
That's a beautiful one.
Juan from Colombia has
a passion for finding birds.
In three years I've
seen 491 species of bird.
Not bad at all, but in the Colombian
jungle, there are reportedly
1,920 different species,
so how does he go
about spotting them?
He paces through the Colombian
jungle with a pair of binoculars
and parents in tow...
and has a special book
to identify what they are.
Their colours -
some species have pretty colours -
and also by their behaviour,
how they hunt.
So, he has seen 491 birds.
Is he giving up any time soon?
No, he has set his sights on seeing
all of them in the jungle,
and then he wants to see
all the birds in the world!
What a big dream.
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.
Next up, from a cool school project
to an ultra-cool classroom.
These kids in Japan are taking part
in a year-long project to see
what it's like to learn
inside a digital classroom.
They've ditched books,
pens and paper and swapped them
with 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.
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 them in, it
is incredible, it is really nice.
is just an incredible thing to look
at. It is really big, and has loads
of craters, and it is hard to count
I did not know...
bigger than I expected. We have been
lying down under the Mint is he the
smallest crater, which is the size
I find it enjoyable.
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 am here today because I love space
science. My advice to anyone out
there interested in science is to
study hard at school but to do other
activities in your spare time, and
who knows, one of you watching could
be the next person who goes to the
moon or even onto 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!
Finally, a pitch invasion
with a difference in a Champions
League game last night.
This ginger cat surprised
players by appearing
in the fourty-ninth minute.
He leapt from one of the advertising
hoardings onto the pitch,
