Morning, I'm Leah and this is your Thursday morning

0:00:040:00:06

Newsround live on CBBC.

0:00:060:00:08

Coming up.

0:00:080:00:09

Getting ready for their close-ups!

0:00:090:00:11

The school for wannabe vloggers.

0:00:110:00:13

And heartbreak for the snail who was trying to find love.

0:00:130:00:18

First up, to the biggest and most powerful wind

0:00:260:00:28

turbines on the planet, which have just been

0:00:280:00:31

opened in Liverpool Bay.

0:00:310:00:35

They're taller than two Big Ben towers.

0:00:360:00:38

Their blades are as long as a queue of nine double-decker buses.

0:00:380:00:43

And there are 32 of them, ready to go in Liverpool Bay.

0:00:430:00:49

This wind farm, called Berbo Bank Extension,

0:00:490:00:51

covers 40 square kilometres in the Irish Sea, 12 kilometres off

0:00:510:00:56

the coast of Liverpool.

0:00:560:00:58

Wind turbines are hardly new, you can see them in a lot

0:00:580:01:02

of places in the UK, inland and out at sea,

0:01:020:01:06

turning in the wind to make energy.

0:01:060:01:08

But this is the first place in the world where turbines this

0:01:080:01:12

big have been built.

0:01:120:01:13

Being so big makes these turbines really powerful.

0:01:130:01:15

Every time these blades make a full circle, they make enough electricity

0:01:150:01:22

to run a whole UK home for more than a day.

0:01:220:01:25

Altogether, the turbines at Berbo Bank Extension are expected

0:01:250:01:27

to be able to power more than 230,000 homes, more than enough

0:01:270:01:32

for the city of Liverpool.

0:01:320:01:34

And we might see more mega farms like these in the future.

0:01:340:01:39

OK, time for a quick look at today's top sport stories.

0:01:390:01:43

Huddersfield goalkeeper Danny Ward saved two penalties to send them

0:01:430:01:45

to the Championship playoff final.

0:01:450:01:48

They beat Sheffield Wednesday 4-3 in the shoot-out to reach Wembley

0:01:480:01:51

where they'll play Reading.

0:01:510:01:54

Whoever wins that will have a place in the Premier League next season.

0:01:540:01:58

Where Sergio Romero made a series of brilliant saves as Southampton

0:01:580:02:01

and Manchester United played out a goalless draw at St Mary's.

0:02:010:02:05

Anthony Martial then went on to hit the post from 25 yards.

0:02:050:02:08

United are guaranteed a sixth-place finish.

0:02:080:02:13

And in the women's game, Chelsea and Arsenal both scored

0:02:130:02:16

in stoppage time to draw 2-2 in the Super League

0:02:160:02:24

One Spring Series.

0:02:240:02:25

Elsewhere leaders Liverpool beat Sunderland to move six points clear.

0:02:250:02:28

Next, have you ever wondered what it takes to be a vlogger?

0:02:280:02:31

Well, a new school in Exeter in the south east of England

0:02:310:02:34

promises to teach kids the tricks of the trade.

0:02:340:02:36

Whitney went to check it out.

0:02:360:02:37

Putting myself in that selfie mode, of course, I'm very excited today.

0:02:370:02:40

I'm at the UK's first vlogging school and I'm going to learn a few

0:02:400:02:44

things from these guys.

0:02:440:02:46

From gaming to make-up, to virtual reality and more, these

0:02:460:02:49

vloggers love to try new things.

0:02:490:02:52

Meet these three students who are passionate about vlogging.

0:02:520:02:57

Everyone has a talent, and I guess people here,

0:02:570:02:59

vlogging and YouTubing is our special talent.

0:02:590:03:02

You can collab with other people also doing it.

0:03:020:03:06

There's studios and in the studios it's all quiet

0:03:060:03:09

and they have all the equipment.

0:03:090:03:11

I've learnt how to set up the lights, the cameras

0:03:110:03:14

and the audio, how to add animations over the top, how to add pictures.

0:03:140:03:17

But do you need a fancy school, high tech equipment

0:03:170:03:22

and professional studios?

0:03:220:03:25

Can't you just do it yourself?

0:03:250:03:26

If you really want to be a vlogger, you want to be a YouTuber,

0:03:260:03:30

you've just got to try.

0:03:300:03:31

Use the equipment you've got, start with your phone, be confident,

0:03:310:03:33

plan what you're going to do, and just work at it.

0:03:330:03:36

It's hard work but stick to it and keep trying.

0:03:360:03:38

So how do you become an amazing vlogger?

0:03:380:03:41

These three guys will give you their top tips.

0:03:410:03:45

For a video, we practice the video over and over again.

0:03:450:03:48

We do a few takes, we don't just do one because if you make

0:03:480:03:51

a mistake and you carry on it won't be as good.

0:03:510:03:54

I say some random things as a sound test.

0:03:540:03:56

I record five of each thing.

0:03:560:03:59

Then I go through them and pick the best two and disqualify the one

0:03:590:04:04

that's not the greatest.

0:04:040:04:06

Wow, what a day!

0:04:060:04:08

I think I've definitely learnt a lot from these vloggers.

0:04:080:04:10

I think I'm going to be sticking around to find out a bit more.

0:04:100:04:13

What do you think, Whitney?

0:04:130:04:16

Whitney?!

0:04:160:04:18

You might remember we told you the story of Jeremy the snail

0:04:220:04:24

who was looking for love.

0:04:240:04:26

He was finding hard to find a mate because the spiral

0:04:260:04:28

on his shell coils to the left, rather than to the right,

0:04:280:04:31

like most other snails.

0:04:310:04:33

Well, against the odds, two leftie snails were found

0:04:330:04:35

as possible mates for Jeremy.

0:04:350:04:38

But it wasn't meant to be.

0:04:380:04:40

The other leftie snails mated with each other instead,

0:04:400:04:43

and had 170 babies.

0:04:430:04:45

You hang on in there, Jeremy!

0:04:450:04:49

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
