We would love to hear from you.

Here's Newsround.

0:00:000:00:01

Morning, Ayshah here with your top

stories this Monday.

0:00:120:00:15

First up, if you were watching

Newsround last week you may remember

0:00:150:00:23

this lady - she's called

Andria Zafirakou, and she was up

0:00:230:00:26

for a global award for Best Teacher.

0:00:260:00:27

So how did she get on?

0:00:270:00:29

Andria Zafirakou!

0:00:290:00:31

Yes, she beat competition

from teachers from 170 countries

0:00:310:00:33

around the world to win.

0:00:330:00:41

Here's what she had to say.

0:00:410:00:43

To all the students all

over the world, I say,

0:00:430:00:45

whatever your circumstances,

whatever your troubles, please know

0:00:450:00:47

that you have the potential

to succeed in whatever your dreams

0:00:470:00:50

may be, and that is a right that

nobody should take from you.

0:00:500:00:56

Well done, Andria!

0:00:560:00:59

Next, for some of you when you look

out the window this morning,

0:00:590:01:02

it might look like a winter

wonderland, even though it's spring.

0:01:020:01:04

Hundreds of schools

in South West England

0:01:040:01:07

have a snow day today,

as up to 40cm has fallen and some

0:01:070:01:10

roads are really difficult

to walk or drive on.

0:01:100:01:13

Weather forecasters say temperatures

should get warmer by tomorrow.

0:01:130:01:17

Time to catch up

on some football news.

0:01:170:01:21

In the FA Cup, Chelsea will play

Southampton in the semi-finals.

0:01:210:01:24

Chelsea beat Leicester

City in extra time.

0:01:240:01:27

Pedro was the hero of the day,

his header winning the match.

0:01:270:01:29

Southampton managed two

goals as they beat Wigan

0:01:290:01:31

2-0 in their match.

0:01:310:01:35

The other semi-final

will be between Tottenham

0:01:350:01:36

and Manchester United.

0:01:360:01:38

Next, we've been travelling

around the UK hearing some

0:01:380:01:44

of your amazing real-life stories.

0:01:440:01:46

Today, we're hearing

from Daniel and Sabrina,

0:01:460:01:47

who managed to do something

incredible, all thanks

0:01:470:01:49

to learning first aid.

0:01:490:01:56

I feel really happy that I've

saved someone who I love.

0:02:040:02:11

In July, after school,

on the last day, we came upstairs

0:02:150:02:19

to say hello to our grandmother.

0:02:190:02:23

Straightaway we saw

her on the floor.

0:02:230:02:25

We saw that she couldn't breathe

so we opened up her airway,

0:02:250:02:28

we put her in the recovery position.

0:02:280:02:32

I was seeing if she wasn't choking

on her tongue or anything,

0:02:320:02:35

or anything was blocking her throat.

0:02:350:02:38

I was worried.

0:02:380:02:41

I didn't know if I

was doing it right.

0:02:410:02:43

I was a bit calm, all because of

Cub Scouts, I knew what to do.

0:02:430:02:47

When the paramedics came,

they were shocked on who put

0:02:470:02:51

them in this position,

and their words were

0:02:510:02:53

that we are diamonds.

0:02:530:02:56

I found it quite easy to learn

because all you had to do

0:02:560:02:59

is move her arms and legs

and open up airways.

0:02:590:03:04

Afterwards, we got to meet Prince

Harry because what of we've done.

0:03:040:03:09

I didn't know who he was before.

0:03:090:03:13

Prince Harry was quite amazed

about what we had done.

0:03:130:03:15

I think more children should learn

first aid because you don't know

0:03:150:03:18

when someone's going to collapse,

fall unconscious

0:03:180:03:20

or maybe even faint.

0:03:200:03:28

Well done, guys, and inspiring

story.

0:03:280:03:31

Can you make the noise of a cow?

0:03:310:03:35

How about a horse?

0:03:350:03:36

Or a cat?

0:03:360:03:41

Well, a teenager in Ghana can do

all of them and many more.

0:03:410:03:44

Listen to this...

0:03:440:03:46

MAKES COCKEREL NOISE.

0:03:460:03:54

Justice Osei discovered

he had the unusual talent

0:03:560:03:58

of copying animal noises.

0:03:580:03:59

He can do about 50 different

species, and is trying

0:03:590:04:01

to get a world record.

0:04:010:04:04

Now from one odd story to another -

bananas and strawberries,

0:04:040:04:07

which one would you say is a berry?

0:04:070:04:09

The answer might surprise you.

0:04:090:04:10

Here's this week Big Question.

0:04:100:04:13

Right, what to have for lunch today.

0:04:130:04:15

Hmm...

0:04:150:04:16

Banana...

0:04:160:04:17

A berry?

0:04:170:04:18

What?!

0:04:180:04:19

Excuse me, I think you'll find

you've got your sign wrong.

0:04:190:04:22

A banana isn't a berry.

0:04:220:04:23

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

0:04:230:04:24

What?!

0:04:240:04:25

I'm so confused.

0:04:250:04:28

This week's big question is...

0:04:280:04:36

"How is a banana a berry,

but a strawberry isn't?"

0:04:360:04:38

I mean, what?!

0:04:380:04:39

Let's ask an expert.

0:04:390:04:40

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

0:04:400:04:41

A botanist is a scientist

who studies plants.

0:04:410:04:43

Botanists call different fruit

types different names.

0:04:430:04:45

A banana is what we call

a berry because this fleshy

0:04:450:04:49

part contains the seeds.

0:04:490:04:53

You might not even notice

them when you eat them,

0:04:530:04:55

because they're really tiny,

but in wild bananas

0:04:550:04:57

they're quite big.

0:04:570:05:00

A strawberry, on the other hand,

is not what we call a berry,

0:05:000:05:05

because the seeds are on the outside

of this fleshy red part,

0:05:050:05:08

you can see them here.

0:05:080:05:10

So there are fruits

like strawberries and raspberries

0:05:100:05:13

which we all think of as berries

because that's what they've been

0:05:130:05:16

called for hundreds of years.

0:05:160:05:18

But if you want to get scientific,

botanically speaking, a banana

0:05:180:05:21

is a berry and strawberry isn't.

0:05:210:05:27

And it turns out there

are more unexpected berries,

0:05:270:05:30

including kiwis, tomatoes,

and even cucumbers.

0:05:300:05:32

Well, there you have it.

0:05:320:05:34

But if you ask me,

it's all a bit bananas.

0:05:340:05:42

Before we go this morning,

we all know dogs love

0:05:420:05:45

going for walkies -

and they love it even more

0:05:450:05:48

if there are lots of them!

0:05:480:05:50

Almost 1000 tiny sausage dogs

and their owners got together

0:05:500:05:52

in Greenwich Park in London

over the weekend.

0:05:520:05:58

Only on Newsround!

0:05:580:06:00

We're back at 4.20pm.
