You're watching Newsround,

we're live on CBBC.

0:00:120:00:15

Ricky here, and we're

going to start with the snow.

0:00:150:00:17

It's back again!

0:00:170:00:20

Parts of the UK have been covered

with snow and ice,

0:00:200:00:21

as the "Mini Beast

from the East" sweeps in.

0:00:210:00:27

It's back.

0:00:270:00:28

Just when you thought

better weather was on the way.

0:00:280:00:31

Lots of areas in the UK have

woken up to snowy and icy scenes

0:00:310:00:34

but there are weather warnings

in south-west England,

0:00:340:00:37

south-east and mid-Wales

and the West Midlands.

0:00:370:00:41

5cm to 10cm of snow

is forecast to fall.

0:00:410:00:44

There's disruption on the trains,

on the roads and at some airports.

0:00:440:00:50

Still, at least someone

is enjoying it all.

0:00:500:00:57

This dog is called Sir Benson -

he's only got two legs

0:00:570:01:00

but luckily his wheels are helping

him go for a walkies in the snow.

0:01:000:01:04

At Manchester United,

0:01:040:01:05

workers had quite a job

getting the pitch ready.

0:01:050:01:07

And anyone for a swim?

0:01:070:01:08

I think I'll pass.

0:01:080:01:09

Although it's not

putting this lady off.

0:01:090:01:13

Here's hoping the Mini Beast

from the East will be gone soon.

0:01:130:01:18

And if you're having

fun in the snow,

0:01:180:01:20

don't forget to head

to Newsround Online

0:01:200:01:22

to send in a picture.

0:01:220:01:26

Talking of chilly weather,

meet the Grandma in Canada

0:01:260:01:29

who has kept a snowball

in her freezer for 11 years!

0:01:290:01:34

She was given it all those years ago

by her granddaughter, Alecia,

0:01:340:01:37

who was five at the time.

0:01:370:01:39

She treasured it so much,

she put it in a plastic bag

0:01:390:01:42

and kept it in the freezer,

0:01:420:01:43

even taking it with her

when she moved house.

0:01:430:01:46

Grandma Mae had forgotten

all about it until her and Alecia

0:01:460:01:49

found the old photo when she

gave it to her 11 years ago.

0:01:490:01:57

And I was like, "Oh, my goodness.

0:02:000:02:01

11 years, that's been there."

0:02:010:02:02

It makes me really happy,

0:02:020:02:04

because I know that she's thinking

of me and she has that there.

0:02:040:02:07

Part of me is here

with her all the time.

0:02:070:02:09

It's really adorable,

I love it so much.

0:02:090:02:16

Let's get a quick round up

of the big sports news.

0:02:160:02:18

There's been gold at

the Winter Paralympics for Team GB

0:02:180:02:23

as Menna Fitzpatrick and her guide,

Jen Kehoe, won gold medals

0:02:230:02:27

in the women's

visually-impaired slalom.

0:02:270:02:30

It is GB's first gold

of these Games,

0:02:300:02:32

and only their second

Winter Paralympic gold ever.

0:02:320:02:36

Millie Knight

and Brett Wild also won bronze.

0:02:360:02:38

Let's hear from the winners.

0:02:380:02:42

It's been absolutely astonishing,

the way that this week has gone,

0:02:420:02:47

from quite low to extremely,

extremely high.

0:02:470:02:53

As soon we crossed the finish

line on the second race,

0:02:530:02:56

my confidence got boosted.

0:02:560:03:00

Winning the bronze as well

was absolutely amazing.

0:03:000:03:02

To finish on gold medal

0:03:020:03:06

and one of our strong performances

this week is beyond words.

0:03:060:03:11

It hasn't sunk in, and it probably

won't until we get back to the UK

0:03:110:03:15

and are back in our own beds,

and we can have a lie-in.

0:03:150:03:18

The Premier League's

top scorer did it again

0:03:180:03:20

for Liverpool yesterday.

0:03:200:03:21

Mohammed Salah scored

four goals for his team

0:03:210:03:23

as they beat Watford 5-0.

0:03:230:03:25

His manager says

he's getting as good as Messi!

0:03:250:03:30

And is Mark Cavendish

0:03:300:03:31

one of the unluckiest

men in sport, or what?

0:03:310:03:34

The British cyclist

had a big crash

0:03:340:03:36

in the Milan San

Remo race yesterday,

0:03:360:03:38

his third one this year.

0:03:380:03:40

He's cracked a rib and has bruising

but his team doctors say he's OK.

0:03:400:03:48

OK, history fans,

stick around for this,

0:03:490:03:51

we're heading to Liverpool to see

an ancient underground army,

0:03:510:03:54

kept hidden for thousands of years.

0:03:540:03:56

Martin's got this.

0:03:560:04:00

This is the Terracotta Army.

0:04:000:04:05

It was buried deep underground,

secretly guarding the tomb

0:04:050:04:08

of China's first Emperor

for more than 2,000 years,

0:04:080:04:11

until it was discovered by accident

as farmers dug the land.

0:04:110:04:16

The tomb belonged to

Emperor Qin Shi Huang,

0:04:160:04:19

the founder of the Chinese Empire,

who had many enemies.

0:04:190:04:22

He believed that his full-sized clay

soldiers would protect him

0:04:220:04:24

in the next life, after he died.

0:04:240:04:26

Now they've carefully been brought

back to the surface and repaired

0:04:260:04:29

for everyone to see.

0:04:290:04:34

But you don't have to go all the way

to China to see them.

0:04:340:04:38

Some of them are

right here in Liverpool.

0:04:380:04:40

So these kids have been

to check them out.

0:04:400:04:44

How long did it take to make

the terracotta warriors?

0:04:440:04:48

We don't know exactly how long it

took to make one warrior.

0:04:480:04:51

But, as you can see,

they are so detailed and elaborate

0:04:510:04:53

that I imagine it would have taken

quite some time to make each one.

0:04:530:04:57

Each part of the body

was made separately,

0:04:570:04:59

so the legs and feet were made,

and they are solid clay -

0:04:590:05:02

because they are so heavy, the base

of them had to be quite sturdy.

0:05:020:05:06

Who was the strongest warrior?

0:05:060:05:07

The warriors

were obviously the soldiers

0:05:070:05:08

that were ready to fight in battle,

0:05:080:05:11

but in another pit nearby

were figures

0:05:110:05:13

that the Emperor had made

to entertain him in the afterlife,

0:05:130:05:16

and in that pit were acrobats

and strongmen,

0:05:160:05:19

and those strongmen figures

had really big muscles,

0:05:190:05:22

so I imagine they were

meant to be very strong.

0:05:220:05:25

So what do they make of the army?

0:05:250:05:29

I'm so amazed how big

the terracotta warriors are.

0:05:290:05:31

I like how they look,

and they've got armour on

0:05:310:05:35

and are really detailed.

0:05:350:05:36

When I imagined

what they would look like,

0:05:360:05:38

I wasn't expecting them

to be a really big size.

0:05:380:05:41

I think that

it's actually pretty impressive

0:05:410:05:44

that they came from China,

all the way to Liverpool,

0:05:440:05:47

and that they're still

in really good condition.

0:05:470:05:51

That's it from me for now,

Newsround's back at 2:15pm.
