Hi, guys.

0:00:120:00:13

Ricky here with your Sunday

afternoon bulletin.

0:00:130:00:15

Coming up in the next few minutes:

0:00:150:00:17

Gold at last for GB

at the Paralympics.

0:00:170:00:19

And it's snowy here,

but spring has sprung in China!

0:00:190:00:27

Great Britain has finished

the Winter Paralympics

0:00:300:00:31

with its first gold medal.

0:00:310:00:34

Menna Fitzpatrick and her guide

Jen Kehoe came in first place

0:00:340:00:38

in the women's visually-impaired

slalom.

0:00:380:00:41

It is GB's only gold of these Games

and only their second

0:00:410:00:44

Winter Paralympic gold ever.

0:00:440:00:45

Millie Knight and Brett

Wild also won bronze.

0:00:450:00:48

Let's hear from the winners.

0:00:480:00:50

It's been absolutely astonishing,

the way that this week has

0:00:500:00:56

gone, from quite low

to extremely, extremely high.

0:00:560:01:01

As soon as we crossed that finish

line on the second race,

0:01:010:01:04

my confidence got boosted,

and for winning the bronze as well,

0:01:040:01:07

it's absolutely amazing.

0:01:070:01:12

To finish on a gold medal and put

in one of our strongest performances

0:01:120:01:15

this week is beyond words.

0:01:150:01:19

It hasn't sunk in and I think it

probably won't until we get back

0:01:190:01:22

to the UK and are back

in our own beds and have a lie in.

0:01:220:01:27

Next up, the snow is back again!

0:01:270:01:29

Parts of the UK have been covered

with snow and ice, as the "mini

0:01:290:01:32

beast from the east" sweeps in.

0:01:320:01:37

It's back!

0:01:370:01:38

Just when you thought better

weather was on the way.

0:01:380:01:41

Lots of areas in the UK have woken

up to snowy and icy scenes,

0:01:410:01:44

but there are weather warnings

in the south-west of England,

0:01:440:01:48

south-east and Mid Wales

and the West Midlands.

0:01:480:01:52

Five to ten centimetres of snow

is forecast to fall.

0:01:520:01:59

There is disruption on the trains,

the roads and at some airports.

0:01:590:02:02

Still, at least someone

is enjoying it.

0:02:020:02:04

This dog is called Sir Benson.

0:02:040:02:07

He's only got two legs,

but luckily his wheels

0:02:070:02:09

are helping him go for walkies

in the snow.

0:02:090:02:11

At Manchester United,

workers had quite a job

0:02:110:02:14

getting the pitch ready.

0:02:140:02:16

And anyone for a swim?

0:02:160:02:20

I think I'll pass, although it's not

putting this lady off.

0:02:200:02:23

Here's hoping the mini beast

from the east will be gone soon.

0:02:230:02:29

Well, it might be freezing here, but

it's definitely spring elsewhere.

0:02:290:02:33

Check out this amazing sight

of cherry blossoms that

0:02:330:02:35

have sprung in China.

0:02:350:02:37

Visitors from all over the country

have travelled to see them

0:02:370:02:41

and take photographs.

0:02:410:02:44

Next, we're talking

about teachers that inspire you.

0:02:440:02:47

A competition called

the Global Teachers Prize is aiming

0:02:470:02:50

to find the world's best teacher.

0:02:500:02:53

The $1 million prize

is handed out tonight,

0:02:530:02:54

and a teacher from the UK

is in the final ten.

0:02:540:02:58

Let's meet her.

0:02:580:03:01

I absolutely love what I do.

0:03:050:03:07

I can't imagine

having any other job.

0:03:070:03:11

They are my kids!

0:03:110:03:13

I am a mum to about 1,400 students.

0:03:130:03:16

Good morning, girls.

0:03:160:03:17

Morning.

0:03:170:03:18

Namaste, ladies.

0:03:180:03:19

Good morning.

0:03:190:03:20

Kalimera, hola.

0:03:200:03:21

How are you?

0:03:210:03:23

My calling in life is to make sure

that every single child

0:03:230:03:27

reaches their full potential,

that I unlock that,

0:03:270:03:30

that I make sure that,

whatever it is that they need

0:03:300:03:32

to achieve, I make

it happen for them.

0:03:320:03:34

# Beautiful like

diamonds in the sky...

0:03:340:03:38

She would look after me like my mum

would look after me.

0:03:380:03:41

It doesn't matter

where they come from.

0:03:410:03:43

It doesn't matter who they are.

0:03:430:03:46

She would push you to your full

potential, no matter what.

0:03:460:03:50

She's like a hero

to me, she really is.

0:03:500:03:56

Now, you'll be used to seeing sights

like this in the night sky.

0:03:560:03:59

But what if I told you that,

for British Science Week,

0:03:590:04:02

Leicester Cathedral hosted

a huge moon.

0:04:020:04:04

Confused?

0:04:040:04:05

Me too.

0:04:050:04:07

Luckily, Ayshah is

here to explain more.

0:04:070:04:14

It's not a sight you see every

day in a cathedral -

0:04:140:04:18

a huge replica of the moon,

hanging from the ceiling.

0:04:180:04:21

These schoolchildren from Leicester

have been to check it out.

0:04:220:04:24

We've been looking at the moon,

which is incredible.

0:04:240:04:27

Just, it's really, really nice...

0:04:270:04:31

It's just an incredible

thing to look at.

0:04:310:04:33

I like looking at the moon

because it's really big and it's

0:04:330:04:36

got loads of craters.

0:04:360:04:38

It looks like it would be really

hard to count them all.

0:04:380:04:43

I didn't actually know

that there was an ocean in it.

0:04:430:04:46

It's bigger than I expected.

0:04:460:04:47

We've been laying down under

the moon and trying to find

0:04:470:04:50

the smallest crater,

and that's the size of Leicester.

0:04:500:04:56

I found it enjoyable.

0:04:560:04:58

The moon was made by an artist

in the UK called Luke Jerram.

0:04:580:05:01

It's seven metres wide and he's

studied Nasa images of the moon's

0:05:010:05:07

surface in detail to help him

make the replica.

0:05:070:05:09

Susie is a scientist and is running

activities for children.

0:05:090:05:11

She wants more people

to get into science.

0:05:110:05:15

I am here today

because I love science.

0:05:150:05:19

My advice to anyone out there who's

interested in science is to study

0:05:190:05:22

hard at school but also do

lots of activities

0:05:220:05:24

in your spare time.

0:05:240:05:28

Who knows, one of you watching

could be the next person that goes

0:05:280:05:31

to the moon or even onto Mars.

0:05:310:05:34

And finally, it's not just snow

falling from the sky these days.

0:05:340:05:36

It's raining gold - sort of.

0:05:360:05:38

200 bars of the precious metal fell

from a plane in Russia

0:05:380:05:41

as it was taking off.

0:05:410:05:44

They were left scattered

all over the runway but have

0:05:440:05:46

all been recovered.

0:05:460:05:48

It's thought the loading hatch

on the plane broke off,

0:05:480:05:50

setting the content free.

0:05:500:05:53

That's it from the weekend team.

0:05:530:05:55

Newsround's back at 7:40am tomorrow.

0:05:550:05:58

Enjoy the snow!
