Saturday as I go behind the scenes

of the incredible match between city

0:00:000:00:00

and Wigan. Quarter to eight in the

morning on C BBC. Goodbye.

0:00:000:00:11

Morning.

0:00:140:00:15

Ricky here with your

Friday morning Newsround.

0:00:150:00:18

First today, children

in the American state of Florida

0:00:180:00:21

who survived a shooting

at their school have met

0:00:210:00:23

with President Trump and lawmakers.

0:00:230:00:25

They went to the capital of Florida

and to Washington DC,

0:00:250:00:27

where they talked about the changes

they want to happen...

0:00:270:00:30

They went in their hundreds and

wanted to be heard. Children from

0:00:360:00:40

the school affected by the shooting

were joined alongside hundreds of

0:00:400:00:45

other students in Florida and

Washington, DC. Some of the

0:00:450:00:49

survivors of the shooting met with

President Trump because they want

0:00:490:00:53

changes to the gun laws so this will

not happen again. Trump suggested if

0:00:530:00:58

teachers in America were armed with

guns themselves they might be able

0:00:580:01:01

to stop a shooting from happening.

Some people support the President's

0:01:010:01:07

suggestion but others say more guns

is not the answer to the problem.

0:01:070:01:11

The US leader also said he would

like better checks on the

0:01:110:01:14

backgrounds are people who want to

buy guns. While the meeting took

0:01:140:01:18

place hundreds of children marched

outside. Many children across

0:01:180:01:23

America are planning to come

together in Washington, DC next

0:01:230:01:25

month for a protest they have called

March for our lives.

0:01:250:01:31

For more on this story,

go and take a look at our guide

0:01:320:01:35

at Newsround online.

0:01:350:01:36

We've also got advice

there if you're upset

0:01:360:01:38

by what you see in the news.

0:01:380:01:40

Football now, and Arsenal survived

a scare in their Europa

0:01:400:01:42

League tie last night.

0:01:420:01:43

Leading 3-0 from the first leg

against Ostersunds FK of Sweden,

0:01:430:01:46

they gave away two goals

in the first half.

0:01:460:01:50

But to the relief of the home crowd,

Kolasniac's goal secured a win,

0:01:500:01:53

getting the gunners

through to the next round.

0:01:530:01:55

The final score was

4-2 win on aggregate.

0:01:550:02:00

But Celtic's European

hopes are over.

0:02:000:02:02

Despite leading 1-0

from the first leg match

0:02:020:02:08

against Zenit St Petersburg,

Celtic let in three goals, crashing

0:02:080:02:10

out of the Europa League.

0:02:100:02:14

Dr Tom has the answer

to an explosive question ?

0:02:140:02:16

how are fireworks made?

0:02:160:02:19

Dr Tom is an expert,

so please do not try this at home.

0:02:190:02:27

Hello, I am Doctor Tom, a fireworks

expert. I am here to answer the big

0:02:350:02:39

question this week, which is from

Rees in Cambridgeshire and it is how

0:02:390:02:45

fireworks made? A firework is a lot

of different chemical reactions. To

0:02:450:02:49

make colours we add metal salt to

the firework mix. So we had a strong

0:02:490:02:55

team to get read. Very to get green.

Sodium salts to get yellow. And to

0:02:550:03:01

get blue, the most difficult colour

of the lot, you add copper salt to

0:03:010:03:05

the mix. What you packed into the

fireworks to make it effective are

0:03:050:03:10

called stars. This is a star. This

will burn the Violet and in the

0:03:100:03:15

middle it changes the composition

and burns with silver sparks. About

0:03:150:03:19

the size of a pea and hundreds of

them are in a firework shell. Black

0:03:190:03:23

powder or gunpowder as some call it

is one of the key ingredient in

0:03:230:03:27

making byword. It is two purposes.

Sometimes to produce gold sparks of

0:03:270:03:33

long duration flowing down to the

ground and making it look pretty but

0:03:330:03:37

more often as a propellant to shoot

a shell into the sky or to motor a

0:03:370:03:42

rocket. Fireworks sound like

whistles and screeches and they are

0:03:420:03:47

made from different types of

chemistry. We press a tiny band of

0:03:470:03:52

this composition into the bottom of

the tube and in the rest of the tube

0:03:520:03:55

it acts like an organ pipe to

amplify the sound and make a really

0:03:550:03:59

loud sound. This is a firework

mortar. It is what is used to fire

0:03:590:04:06

the fireworks into the air. We have

hundreds and hundreds of these added

0:04:060:04:11

together and the shell goes in here.

The bottom part is for the black

0:04:110:04:15

powder to propel the shell into the

air and the top part is full of the

0:04:150:04:19

stars reducing the big burst of

colour in the sky.

we want to hear YOUR views about.

0:04:270:04:29

After a school in Norfolk has banned

kids from having certain hairstyles,

0:04:290:04:32

we want to know if you think that

should be allowed.

Over at the Winter Olympics

a 15-year-old figure

0:04:370:04:39

skater has won gold.

0:04:390:04:40

Alina Zagitova topped the scoreboard

with this performance,

0:04:400:04:42

narrowly beating her Russian team

mate to take the top prize.

0:04:420:04:45

It's the first gold won

by Olympic Athletes from Russia

0:04:450:04:48

at the games so far.

0:04:480:04:51

That's it for now.
