See you.

Good morning to you, it's Monday and I'm Ayshah

0:00:020:00:04

with all of these great stories coming your way.

0:00:040:00:07

We meet the musical family where absolutely everyone plays something.

0:00:070:00:13

And we check out the Formula One of the ice-skating world.

0:00:130:00:16

UK Prime Minister Theresa May will go to America this week to meet

0:00:260:00:30

Donald Trump to talk about how the countries will work together.

0:00:300:00:34

But it's been a tricky first weekend in the job for President Trump.

0:00:340:00:37

His team have argued with the media over the size of the crowds

0:00:370:00:41

who watched his inauguration.

0:00:410:00:41

Photos show large empty spaces when compared

0:00:410:00:43

to Barack Obama's inaguration, but Mr Trump says the crowd was much

0:00:430:00:46

larger than the media says and they aren't being fair to him.

0:00:460:00:55

The weekend also saw millions of people in America and around

0:00:550:00:57

the world protesting against Donald Trump.

0:00:570:00:59

They were marching to show their support for a number of issues,

0:00:590:01:02

including gender equality and gay rights, which they say

0:01:020:01:05

they don't think Donald Trump will do enough to protect.

0:01:050:01:15

Now, some of you might play musical instruments,

0:01:150:01:17

but can you imagine coming from a home where everyone

0:01:170:01:19

is a top musician?

0:01:190:01:23

I play the violin.

0:01:230:01:25

I play the cello.

0:01:250:01:26

I play the piano.

0:01:260:01:27

I play the violin.

0:01:270:01:27

I play the cello.

0:01:270:01:32

Meet the Kanneh-Mason family.

0:01:320:01:35

They're all, you've guessed it, pretty musical.

0:01:350:01:37

You guys come from a really musical family, don't you?

0:01:370:01:40

Yes.

0:01:400:01:41

Tell me a little bit about it.

0:01:410:01:43

It's busy, and exciting.

0:01:430:01:45

It can be very noisy, and it can be kind of annoying when you wake up.

0:01:450:01:54

I'm rather used to it, when you always wake up

0:01:540:01:57

and I can always hear a noise and the sound of music.

0:01:570:02:00

What do you love about music, and why?

0:02:000:02:09

I love music because it just has a lovely nice sound

0:02:090:02:13

with every instrument.

0:02:130:02:16

What I love about music is the fact that everyone is different, it's not

0:02:160:02:19

like maths where the answer's always the same.

0:02:190:02:21

What is it like, you all play musical instruments,

0:02:210:02:23

what is it like to play as a group?

0:02:230:02:25

When we all get together it's really nice, it's just really

0:02:250:02:28

noisy and I like that.

0:02:280:02:29

It's really nice playing with siblings because it's easy

0:02:290:02:31

to tell them what to do without putting it into

0:02:310:02:34

words, they just kind of know what to do next.

0:02:340:02:37

You just look at people...

0:02:370:02:38

Yeah, and they just know what to do!

0:02:380:02:42

I couldn't leave this musical home without asking them

0:02:420:02:44

for one special request.

0:02:440:02:46

Would you play the Newsround theme music?

0:02:460:02:49

THEY PLAY THE "NEWSROUND" THEME.

0:02:490:02:59

Not bad, guys, not bad.

0:02:590:03:09

Now, to a sport that is the Formula 1 of the ice skating world -

0:03:090:03:14

long-track speed skating.

0:03:140:03:15

Great Britain dominated the sport around 100 years ago,

0:03:150:03:17

however as time went on the sport has almost died out here in the UK.

0:03:170:03:21

But BBC reporter Mike Bushell has been to check out

0:03:210:03:28

the new home for GB speed skating in the Netherlands.

0:03:280:03:30

The frozen Fens in east England was the home of a traditional form

0:03:300:03:33

of ice skating called track speed skating, where people would race

0:03:330:03:36

each other on a frozen lake around a long track,

0:03:360:03:38

a test of speed and endurance.

0:03:380:03:40

However, in recent years the temperatures have risen

0:03:400:03:42

and the Fens rarely freeze over, meaning people can't skate on them.

0:03:420:03:45

This meant the popularity of track speed skating dropped in the UK.

0:03:450:03:49

However, here in the Netherlands, it's booming.

0:03:490:03:52

And some of the UK's best long-track speed skaters are now training

0:03:520:03:56

here at this giant arena for their competitions.

0:03:560:04:00

So who better to try out this cool new sport than the BBC's

0:04:000:04:03

very own Mike Bushell?

0:04:030:04:04

And what's the point if you don't have the right

0:04:040:04:07

clothing for the job, hey?

0:04:070:04:08

Looking good, buddy!

0:04:080:04:11

Let's find out why people enjoy speed skating.

0:04:110:04:13

I feel like I'm part of the wind!

0:04:130:04:16

The first couple of steps you really need to be explosive,

0:04:160:04:19

really get that speed up, because then the second bit

0:04:190:04:22

you can really accelerate on and really finish your stride.

0:04:220:04:25

It's hoped that top facilities like this will encourage more people

0:04:250:04:28

to try out long-track speed skating.

0:04:280:04:31

I love your style, Mike, but maybe leave it to the professionals!

0:04:310:04:39

Join me in half-an-hour and I'll show you the super-cool tools

0:04:390:04:42

the Dubai firefighters use in their jobs, including jetpacks!

0:04:420:04:49

0:04:500:04:55

How many Blue Peter presenters does it take to change a light bulb?

0:05:010:05:04

No, that doesn't really work.

0:05:040:05:05

Why did the Blue Peter presenter cross the road?

0:05:050:05:08

Er...to get closer to you?

0:05:080:05:10
