Hi, I'm Martin - this is your Wednesday morning Newsround.

0:00:030:00:06

Coming up:

0:00:060:00:09

The latest toys are revealed at a big show in London.

0:00:090:00:12

Och, aye the noo!

0:00:120:00:14

And you tell us how you're celebrating Burns Night.

0:00:140:00:18

First up, there's been a really important decision about how the UK

0:00:250:00:29

will leave a club of countries called the European Union.

0:00:290:00:32

Here's Jenny with more.

0:00:320:00:34

Six months ago, the UK voted to leave the EU.

0:00:340:00:37

How this will happen has been argued over ever since.

0:00:370:00:41

So the Supreme Court -

0:00:410:00:42

where the most important judges in Britain sit -

0:00:420:00:45

was asked to make a decision

0:00:450:00:47

about who decides to tell the European Union

0:00:470:00:50

that the UK is leaving.

0:00:500:00:52

So, Britain is going to tell the EU it's leaving

0:00:520:00:55

by using something called Article 50.

0:00:550:00:58

And the Prime Minister Theresa May

0:00:580:00:59

thought it should be the UK Government's decision

0:00:590:01:01

about when to use it.

0:01:010:01:04

But others thought that Parliament - where MPs make and vote on laws -

0:01:040:01:08

should do it instead.

0:01:080:01:12

The Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish governments

0:01:120:01:14

also thought they should have their say.

0:01:140:01:15

The Supreme Court has now said that its just the UK Parliament

0:01:150:01:18

which gets to decide about Article 50.

0:01:180:01:22

So now all MPs get to vote on it.

0:01:220:01:25

They are expected to decide that the UK should start saying

0:01:250:01:28

goodbye to the European Union.

0:01:280:01:31

Theresa May wants that to happen by the end of March.

0:01:310:01:38

And don't forget, there's loads more info about that big decision

0:01:380:01:40

and what leaving the European Union could mean for the UK online.

0:01:400:01:44

Tennis now and Britain's Johanna Konta has been knocked out

0:01:440:01:46

of the Australian Open by Serena Williams.

0:01:460:01:50

Konta went into the quarter-finals on a nine-match winning streak

0:01:500:01:53

but Serena was just too strong for her, winning in straight sets.

0:01:530:01:56

Williams is now two wins from winning her 23rd major title.

0:01:560:02:02

But the bad luck continues - defending wheelchair singles

0:02:020:02:04

champion Gordon Reid is also out.

0:02:040:02:07

The Scot was beaten in three sets by Belgium Joachim Gerard.

0:02:070:02:11

The Scot was beaten in three sets by Belgium's Joachim Gerard.

0:02:110:02:14

There are now no Brits left in the tournament.

0:02:140:02:16

Now if you love toys, you'll love this.

0:02:160:02:18

Imagine a huge hall filled with all the latest latest gadgets and games.

0:02:180:02:21

Imagine a huge hall filled with all the latest gadgets and games.

0:02:210:02:24

The London Toy Fair is on at the moment and BBC

0:02:240:02:26

technology reporter Zoe Kleinman went along to check it out.

0:02:260:02:28

From robot hamsters to electric scooters, there are hundreds of toys

0:02:290:02:34

on display here at the Toy Fair in London, including some

0:02:340:02:40

we've never seen before.

0:02:400:02:41

The these wristbands are coming out this year and they turn

0:02:410:02:44

you into a human beatbox.

0:02:440:02:45

Every time you move your arms, you create a beat.

0:02:450:02:47

Are you ready?

0:02:470:02:48

Let's have a go, then.

0:02:480:02:50

Shall I start?

0:02:500:02:50

DRUMBEAT

0:02:510:02:56

So there you go, you can see it's lots of fun and it's designed to get

0:02:560:03:00

you moving and also get you interested in music.

0:03:000:03:03

The weird thing about this show is there are so many cool toys

0:03:080:03:12

but only grown-ups to play with them,

0:03:120:03:17

and that's because it is for shopkeepers

0:03:170:03:19

to decide what they want to sell on to you.

0:03:190:03:22

So it may be a little while before you can

0:03:220:03:25

get your hands into one of these.

0:03:250:03:26

SHE LAUGHS

0:03:260:03:28

Yes!

0:03:280:03:32

Now, lots of you guys in Scotland will be marking

0:03:320:03:36

Robert Burns' birthday today with food, music, poetry

0:03:360:03:40

and perhaps a spot of dancing.

0:03:400:03:42

The famous 18th century poet is celebrated every year

0:03:420:03:45

for his contribution to Scottish culture.

0:03:450:03:47

You've been telling us more about his life

0:03:470:03:49

and Burns Night traditions.

0:03:490:03:51

Today is Robbert Burns Day.

0:03:550:03:57

Robert Burns was a Scottish poet.

0:03:570:03:58

We celebrate his birthday because the Scottish are very proud

0:03:580:04:01

of what he achieved in his life.

0:04:010:04:02

He was a very good writer.

0:04:020:04:03

He used the Scottish dialect.

0:04:030:04:05

Burns wrote most of his poems in Scotland, but his work has been

0:04:050:04:09

translated into over 40 languages.

0:04:090:04:13

Och, aye the noo!

0:04:130:04:15

He wrote the tune for Auld Lang Syne and the poem the Selkirk Grace.

0:04:150:04:20

A traditional Burns supper consists of haggis,

0:04:200:04:22

needs and tatties.

0:04:220:04:23

neeps and tatties.

0:04:230:04:25

Robert Burns wrote a special poem called Address The Haggis

0:04:250:04:29

which is sometimes read before the start of your supper.

0:04:290:04:31

And there will be also lots of Scottish country dancing

0:04:310:04:34

happening at ceilidhs.

0:04:340:04:35
