Wilfried Zaha or Sadio Mane.

0:00:000:00:01

See you.

0:00:010:00:03

Morning, Ayshah here

with your Monday newsround.

0:00:110:00:14

First up, if you were watching

us last week you may

0:00:140:00:16

remember this lady.

0:00:160:00:19

She's called Andria Zafirakou,

and she was up for a global

0:00:190:00:22

award for Best Teacher.

0:00:220:00:24

So how did she get on?

0:00:240:00:27

Andria Zafirakou!

0:00:270:00:32

Yes, she beat compeition

from teachers from 170 countires

0:00:320:00:35

around the world to win the prize.

0:00:350:00:40

Here's what she had

to say about her win.

0:00:400:00:42

To all the students all

over the world, I say,

0:00:420:00:45

whatever your circumstances,

whatever your troubles, please know

0:00:450:00:48

that you have the potential

to succeed in whatever your dreams

0:00:480:00:51

may be, and that is a right that

nobody should take from you.

0:00:510:00:57

Well done, Andria!

0:00:570:01:02

Next, for some of you when you look

out the window this morning,

0:01:020:01:05

it might look like a winter

wonderland, even though it's spring.

0:01:050:01:09

Hundreds of schools

in South West England

0:01:090:01:11

have a snow day today,

as up to 40cm has fallen and some

0:01:110:01:14

roads are really difficult

to walk or drive on.

0:01:140:01:18

Weather forecasters say temperatures

should get warmer by tomorrow.

0:01:180:01:22

We've been travelling

around the UK hearing some

0:01:220:01:24

of your amazing real-life stories.

0:01:240:01:25

Today, we're hearing

from Daniel and Sabrina,

0:01:250:01:27

who managed to do something

incredible, all thanks

0:01:270:01:30

to learning first aid.

0:01:300:01:38

I feel really happy that I've

saved someone who I love.

0:01:460:01:54

In July, after school,

on the last day, we came upstairs

0:01:580:02:02

to say hello to our grandmother.

0:02:020:02:05

Straightaway we saw

her on the floor.

0:02:050:02:11

We saw that she couldn't breathe

so we opened up her airway,

0:02:110:02:15

we put her in the recovery position.

0:02:150:02:17

I was seeing if she wasn't choking

on her tongue or anything,

0:02:170:02:19

or anything was blocking her throat.

0:02:190:02:21

I was worried.

0:02:210:02:22

I didn't know if I

was doing it right.

0:02:220:02:24

I was a bit calm, all because of

Cub Scouts, I knew what to do.

0:02:240:02:28

When the paramedics came,

they were shocked on who put

0:02:280:02:32

them in this position,

and their words were

0:02:320:02:37

that we are diamonds.

0:02:370:02:40

I found it quite easy to learn

because all you had to do

0:02:400:02:43

is move her arms and legs

and open up airways.

0:02:430:02:45

Afterwards, we got to meet Prince

Harry because what of we've done.

0:02:450:02:50

I didn't know who he was before.

0:02:500:02:55

Prince Harry was quite amazed

about what we had done.

0:02:550:02:57

I think more children should learn

first aid because you don't know

0:02:570:03:00

when someone's going to collapse,

fall unconscious

0:03:000:03:02

or maybe even faint.

0:03:020:03:10

Well done, guys, fantastic story.

0:03:120:03:15

Now, you might be a fan

of bananas and strawberries,

0:03:150:03:17

but did you know that only one

of them is technically a berry?

0:03:170:03:20

Here's this week's big question.

0:03:200:03:21

Right, what to have for lunch today.

0:03:210:03:23

Hmm...

0:03:230:03:24

Banana...

0:03:240:03:25

A berry?

0:03:250:03:26

What?!

0:03:260:03:27

Excuse me, I think you'll find

you've got your sign wrong.

0:03:270:03:30

A banana isn't a berry.

0:03:300:03:31

No, I think you'll find I haven't.

0:03:310:03:33

What?!

0:03:330:03:34

I'm so confused.

0:03:340:03:35

This week's big question is...

0:03:350:03:36

"How is a banana berry

but a strawberry isn't?"

0:03:360:03:39

I mean, what?!

0:03:390:03:40

Let's ask an expert.

0:03:400:03:44

Hi, I'm Gemma, and I'm a botanist.

0:03:440:03:45

A botanist is a scientist

who studies plants.

0:03:450:03:49

Botanists call different fruit

types different names.

0:03:490:03:53

A banana is what we call

a berry because this fleshy

0:03:530:03:55

part contains the seeds.

0:03:550:03:58

You might not even notice

them when you eat them,

0:03:580:04:00

because they're really tiny,

but in wild bananas

0:04:000:04:02

they're quite big.

0:04:020:04:05

A strawberry, on the other hand,

is not what we call a berry,

0:04:050:04:09

because the seeds are on the outside

of this fleshy red part,

0:04:090:04:12

you can see them here.

0:04:120:04:16

So there are fruits

like strawberries and raspberries

0:04:160:04:18

which we all think of as berries

because that's what they've been

0:04:180:04:21

called for hundreds of years.

0:04:210:04:23

But if you want to get scientific,

botanically speaking, a banana

0:04:230:04:25

is a berry and strawberry isn't.

0:04:250:04:31

And it turns out there

are more unexpected berries,

0:04:310:04:35

including kiwis, tomatoes,

and even cucumbers.

0:04:350:04:38

Well, there you have it.

0:04:380:04:39

But if you ask me,

it's all a bit bananas.

0:04:390:04:47

Come back in half-an-hour, when I'll

show you the teenager trying

0:04:490:04:52

to break a world record by imitating

as many animals as he can.

0:04:520:04:58

See you in 30.

0:04:580:05:04
