Hi.

0:00:130:00:13

I'm Ayshah with Friday's Newsround.

0:00:130:00:14

First, a group of countries

are meeting right now to try

0:00:140:00:17

and agree a plan to stop fighting

in the country of Syria.

0:00:170:00:20

Here's why.

0:00:200:00:24

For seven years, people

in Syria have been affected

0:00:240:00:26

by a devastating war.

0:00:260:00:30

Many have fled the country but some

people, including children,

0:00:300:00:32

are still living there.

0:00:320:00:35

This week, the people who live

in the region of Eastern Ghouta

0:00:350:00:38

have been suffering,

as their homes are hit by bombs.

0:00:380:00:43

Today, a group of leaders

from different countries, called

0:00:430:00:45

the United Nations, are meeting

in New York to try and agree a deal

0:00:450:00:49

to stop the fighting for 30 days.

0:00:490:00:54

This would mean help can get

to those who have been stuck,

0:00:540:00:57

and those who have been hurt

can be treated.

0:00:570:01:00

Around 400,000 people live

in the area, which is about

0:01:000:01:03

the size of Manchester.

0:01:030:01:06

In war, soldiers are only ever meant

to fight other soldiers,

0:01:060:01:09

and they are supposed to take great

care in protecting people who aren't

0:01:090:01:14

fighting, including children.

0:01:140:01:15

But more than 400 people have been

killed and many others are living

0:01:150:01:21

underground with difficulties

getting food and water.

0:01:210:01:23

Lots of powerful countries have been

talking about what to do,

0:01:230:01:26

but so far no one has been able

to agree on how to stop the war.

0:01:260:01:34

There's more about what's happening

in Syria online and you can also

0:01:340:01:37

find help there on what to do

if you're upset by the news.

0:01:370:01:44

Let's head to the Winter Olympics

in Pyeongchang now.

0:01:440:01:46

And Team GB's women's

curling team have lost

0:01:460:01:48

their semifinal in PyeongChang.

0:01:480:01:52

Sweden won the game 10-5.

0:01:520:01:54

But Team GB are still in the running

for a medal, playing Japan tomorrow

0:01:540:01:57

to compete for bronze position.

0:01:570:02:01

If they win, it will take

the medal tally to five,

0:02:010:02:03

the best ever recorded

by Great Britain at a Winter Games.

0:02:030:02:08

We gave our all and the Swedish

girls were on fire.

0:02:080:02:11

Myself, I missed a couple

of key draws and you can't

0:02:110:02:14

afford to do that.

0:02:140:02:15

Of course, absolutely gutted.

0:02:150:02:19

I guess we have trained hard

for the last four years

0:02:190:02:24

to be in that position,

and unfortunately today

0:02:240:02:26

we were just outplayed.

0:02:260:02:28

But we have still got

a medal to play for,

0:02:280:02:29

so we will be giving

it our all tomorrow.

0:02:290:02:34

Now, think Pogba's hair is cool?

0:02:340:02:36

Your head teacher might disagree.

0:02:360:02:39

Kids at a school in Norfolk have

been told they're not allowed

0:02:390:02:42

to have certain hairstyles.

0:02:420:02:43

The headmaster there has

said extreme haircuts,

0:02:430:02:45

like this one worn by Myles

from Rak-Su, are unacceptable.

0:02:450:02:49

He's sent a letter home to parents

saying students who don't

0:02:490:02:53

follow his rules could be sent home

or excluded from lessons.

0:02:530:02:56

Well, we wanted to know your views

on this one,

0:02:560:02:59

and loads of you have

been commenting.

0:02:590:03:03

One person thinks that having

a certain hairstyle doesn't

0:03:030:03:05

affect your learning,

so schools should let kids

0:03:050:03:07

wear their hair how the want.

0:03:070:03:14

Thanks for all those comments.

0:03:240:03:27

There's still time to send

us your views on this one.

0:03:270:03:30

Head online and let us

know what you think.

0:03:300:03:36

Now, I don't know about you,

but I'm looking forward to spring.

0:03:360:03:38

But though we've all got a bit

longer to wait before

0:03:380:03:42

the warm weather arrives,

if you're a fan of the white stuff

0:03:420:03:44

you could be in luck.

0:03:440:03:45

Here's BBC Weather's

Simon King with more.

0:03:450:03:50

If you have been shivering a little

bit so far this winter, well,

0:03:500:03:53

you are going to be shivering a lot

more into next week.

0:03:530:03:56

It's time to get back out

the thermals, gloves, hats

0:03:560:03:58

and scarves, because it is turning

much colder for the UK.

0:03:580:04:02

We've got some really cold air

at the moment sitting

0:04:020:04:06

across parts of Russia.

0:04:060:04:07

This is Siberia and you can

see by the dark blue

0:04:070:04:11

that cold air is gradually

moving its way towards the UK.

0:04:110:04:16

It is called the "beast from

the east", because we have these

0:04:160:04:19

easterly winds bringing in that cold

air, which means temperatures really

0:04:190:04:22

dropping down for the time of year.

0:04:220:04:27

Through next week, it's going

to turn very cold, temperatures not

0:04:270:04:30

much above freezing.

0:04:300:04:31

With that, snow is likely,

mainly across eastern areas,

0:04:310:04:33

but through the week all of us

at some point could see

0:04:330:04:36

some of the white stuff.

0:04:360:04:37

Bye-bye.

0:04:370:04:39

That's all there's time

for this afternoon.

0:04:390:04:43

Have a great Friday evening.

0:04:430:04:44

Newsround's back tomorrow.

0:04:440:04:47

Bye!
