What do Selena Gomez and the Queen have in common? They now both post on Instagram! Queen Elizabeth II posted her first ever Instagram photo of the royal family on the official "Royal Family Instagram Account" for which she used an iPad as she examined "Top Secret exhibits" in the Science Museum. Members of Newsnuggets along with Barnes Primary, were fortunate enough to experience the arrival of Her Majesty in a black Range Rover at the main entrance of the Science Museum. Some were even able to learn about computer coding tequniqhes while interacting with the Queen. After this, Her Majesty said: "Today, I had the pleasure of learning about children's computer coding initiatives and it seems fitting to me that I publish this Instagram post at the Science Museum, which has long championed technology, innovation and inspired the next generation of inventors." During this, other members of Newsnuggets were interviewed by Sky News and First News. The Queen's post was inspired after reading a letter written in 1843 to Queen Elizabeth's great - great grandfather, Prince Albert, from computer pioneer: Charles Babbage. Over 170 years later, the invention that Babbage developed enabled Her Majesty to communicate with all her subjects "Instantly." Image Credit : Getty Images.

Thousands of pupils from all over the UK went "on strike" on the 15th February 2019, as part of a global campaign for action on climate change. children and teens from around 60 towns across the UK walked out of school to call on the government to declare a climate emergency and take active steps to tackle the problems facing our planet. The  strikes, organised by Youth Strike 4 Climate, have resulted in tens of thousands of young people taking to the streets with additional thousands expected to do the same amid the growing concern about the escalating climate crisis. The movement was started in August 2018 when 16 year old Greta Thunberg protested outside the Swedish Parliament and accused her country of not following the Paris Climate Agreement. Jake Woodier, from the UK Youth Climate Coalition said: "The images of what Greta did and the huge strikes by school children have been widely shared by young people on social media and have really inspired people." There have been some pushbacks against the protests by people such as politicians and climate deniers. Recently, Belgian's environment minister was forced to resign after falsly claiming that the protesests were a "set up". She has since resigned her post, given the controversary caused by her remarks. However, overall the protests have been getting broad support. Zoe Bonnet, aged 14, who has already organised a protest in Bristol, said: "People seem to think this is an issue that can be solved another time, but there is no other time, it is is is quite a big step that I am taking, but I do feel strongly that we have to solve it now … I have to do something!" Zoe heard about the strikes after seeing a video of Greta online. The National Association of Head Teachers has expressed disapproval of the strikes saying: "Nothing is more important than a child's education." Despite this comment, Energy Minister, Claire Perry said she was "incredibly proud" of young people's passion and concern. She told the BBC: "I suspect if this was happening 40 years ago, I would be out there too." The BBC also report that Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, said schoolchildren were "right to feel let down by the generation before them," while Green Party MP Caroline Lucas said it was the "most hopeful thing that's happened in years". Theresa May has made it clear that she disapproves of the  protests, saying that the "disruption increases teachers' workloads and wastes lesson time that teachers have carefully prepared." However, First News reports that every single child they spoke to said they would do it again if the Government didn't  start listening, so the Prime Minister should expect similar activity if the Government fails to act. A global school strike is planned for Friday 15 March 2018 with 40 countries already taking part. (Image copyright Getty Images)

October 2019 will mark the the 150th anniversary of Mohandas Gandhi's birth. Gandhi was the primary leader of India's independence movement against British rule and is now known as The Father of the Nation. India, which is today the world's largest democracy, will embark on a general election in May and hundreds of millions of Indians are gearing up to decide who will govern them for the next 5 years.  Many politicians in India today take their inspiration from Gandhi. so his legacy is worth exploring. Gandhi was born in Porbandar, India on October 2, 1869. Born into an upperclass family, Gandhi was encouraged to become a barrister and moved to England to study. Three years later, Gandhi returned to India but struggled to make a living as a lawyer. He took a job with an Indian law firm, based in South Africa. It was here that Gandhi began to experience racial prejudice against Indians and began his work in civil rights. He was appalled by the treatment of Indian immigrants and set up the Indian Congress in Natal to fight segregation - he himself had to leave a first class train carriage because of his skin colour. In 1913, Gandhi led a march of 2,221 people in protest against a £3 tax on people of Indian descent. Gandhi was arrested and sentenced to 9 months imprisonment but the strike spread and the British were forced to drop the tax and release Gandhi. Reports reached England and Gandhi started to become an international figure. After moving back to India, Gandhi was shocked by the overcrowding and poverty experienced by poor Indians and vowed to work for those deprived. At a protest he called, against the right of the British to imprison anyone they suspected of terrorism,  20,000 protesters were fired on by the British in Amritsar. Gandhi was convinced by this massacre to start campaigning for Indian independance. He organised many non- violent campaigns where large groups of Indians did things such as: refuse to work, sit in the streets, boycott courts and much more. Gandhi was put in prison 4 times throughout his life. He would often fast, and as a result of the Indian's love for him, the British government eventually released him out of fear of what the Indian's would do if the British let Gandhi die. The Salt March is one of Gandhi's most famous protests. When the British increased taxes on salt, a main aspect of  Indian diet, Gandhi led thousands of Indians 241 miles to the sea, to make their own salt, in an effort to peacefully disobey British rules. Winston Churchill sought Indian support during World War II to fight against the Nazis. However, Gandhi objected as India was still not free.  In response, Gandhi planned another peaceful protest but as a result was imprisoned along with his wife who died in jail. Faced with increasing calls for freedom, the British finally began negotiations for independence for India. The Mountbatten Plan, in 1947, resulted in the new independent states of India and Pakistan, divided along religious lines, against Gandhi's vision of a united India. The Partition caused the migration of 10 million people and mass killings. Gandhi tried to protect Muslims who had opted to stay in India by fasting but was shot three times in the chest by a Hindu extremist. A crowd of nearly 1 million people lined the route of his funeral procession. Gandhi was a figure of peace who never saw his dream of a united India become a reality. But his message to the world resonates more than ever today : "In a gentle way, you can shake the world."

By 2050, it is predicted that there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. We seriously need to do something about our plastic pollution. Plastic is terrible for the environment. David Attenborough really brought the issue home and now, brilliantly, we hear about it all the time. In countries and cities around the world, the call for the end of single-use plastics is at an all-time high. Stores such as Iceland and Ikea have introduced plastic bans that will go into effect within the next couple of years. Meanwhile, plastic straws and cutlery have been targeted by numerous retailers, including McDonald's in the UK, and having a plastic bag is enough to send you to jail in some countries. Bans on plastic bags have already proved to be extremely effective in the countries that have them. In the UK, for example, the introduction of a 5p plastic bag charge introduced in 2015 has brought about an 83% reduction in plastic bag use. Worldwide, about 2 million plastic bags are used every minute! In one hour our plastic pollution could fill the whole V&A museum! Plastics have changed the world. However, the rapid growth of middle-class and industrial economies has drastically increased the world's plastic consumption in recent decades – and infrastructure development has not kept pace. The result is a dramatic increase in plastic waste.

The government has tried to stop children drinking energy drinks because of the amount of  sugar in them. This is bad for our health. Although people still drink these high in sugar offerings the makers have at least reduced the amount of energy drinks on sale in London. Some energy drinks might say they are for sport, but from my friend' experiences they don't help much. They did say that it tastes good  but they also said it gave them tummy aches. So in summary energy drinks have lots of sugar, don't help doing sport and can give you a tummy aches. I think we should choose not to have them.

Children's Mental Health Week was celebrated from the 4th - 10th of February, and the theme this year was Healthy: Inside and Out. The week is aimed at how we take care of both our minds and bodies. Scott Lunn, from the NHS, explained why we must look after both our physical health and mental health. He said: 'Being healthy isn't just about looking after our bodies its about looking after our minds too. This is called mental health and is just as important as physical health. The two are connected; a healthy body strengthens the mind.' 'When we are experiencing emotions like anger, happiness or nervousness, our bodies show it too. If we angry, we may feel hot; if we are happy, we might feel energetic; if we are nervous, we might get butterflies in our tummy. This happens because blood moves away from the stomach to the brain, legs and arms in case you need to think or react quickly. That is how strong the link is between body and mind.' To stay both physically and mentally healthy, you must try to eat a balanced diet with a good variety of foods, including fruit and vegetables. Food like sweets, biscuits and sugary drinks will make your sugar levels rise but then fall rapidly, leaving you feeling tired and irritable. Being Active: Getting some exercise everyday will lead to a happy and healthy mind and along with an agile and fit body. Even ten minutes brisk walking or an hour of a favourite sport, can improve your alertness and/or energy mood. Sleep: Getting enough sleep and not staying up late will help you feel better and more energised and attentive. Staying up late looking at a screen "can harm your sleeping patterns", says the National Sleep Foundation. The blue light that the screen emits may effect the hormone, known as melatonin, that helps you sleep. Before going to bed the doctors recommend at least an hour away from the screen. Getting enough to eat: although vegetables and fruit are always portrayed as the best possible thing to eat, it is extremely important to have a balanced diet and indulge a mix of different foods, from all the different food groups: (dairy, vegetable, fruit and sweets) We hope you follow our advice to stay healthy, 'Inside and Out,' and spread this information to your friends and family members.

On Wednesday 27th February, almost a month to the day from the UK's scheduled departure from the European Union (Brexit), our Newsnuggets' Club at St Osmund's Primary School in Barnes, South West London took to the streets. We conducted a very small, anonymous poll (we only had 30 minutes) in order to find out what the general public thought about their options on whether or how to leave the EU, today. This coincided with the Labour Party's pledge that it was prepared to back another EU referendum to prevent a "damaging Tory Brexit". Barnes is part of the Borough of Richmond, which backed the Remain Campaign by 65%. We interviewed a total of 12 people, across all demographics. In bold are the 3 questions we asked and the yes/no percentage of their answers. Did you vote Leave or Remain in the 2016 Referedum? Leave : 25% Remain : 75 % Do you think we should leave the EU with No Deal? Yes, just get on with it: 20% No : it would be very damaging for the economy: 70% Not sure : 10% Knowing what you know 2 years on, would you want a second Referendum? Yes: 70 % No, we must get on with it : 30% It was fascinating to see that some of those who voted to Leave in 2016 would now welcome a second referendum. It was also interesting that some who voted to Remain, don't want any further delay and just want to government to reach a deal and get on with their promise. On a national level, the survey by polling firm YouGov conducted that same week showed that if a referendum were held immediately, 46 percent would vote to remain, 39 percent would vote to leave, and the rest either did not know, would not vote, or refused to answer the question.   By : The St Osmund's Team

Recently, children who have access to WhatsApp messaging have been receiving challenges from a terrifying cartoon 'woman' called Momo. She threatens anyone opening her message, challenging them to harm and even kill themselves. Her message is followed by the threat that she would be coming after you or a loved one should you fail to obey. Police have been informing parents and teachers to look out for this eye bulging figure. She has been depicted with: bulging eyes, deformed smile, bird legs and black hair with a fringe. Momo mostly targets younger children and teens but rarely aims for adults. Although she has contacted and threatened many people, she hasn't yet managed to convince anyone to officially kill themselves but has been close to. The most popular way that she contacts people is by the messaging server: Whats App. Police officers confirmed that this Momo 'person' is fake and is just run by a group of hackers that want to gain information from other people. The game was said to have started in Mexico, with players “challenged” to communicate on WhatsApp with an unknown person known as Momo, according to the Computer Crime Investigation Unit of the State of Tabasco, Mexico. And the hoax went viral. To conclude, I advise people to block and report Momo immediately and tell your parents to get her banned from Whats App as soon as possible. As well as that, you should never take notice in any of these challenges either. (Image Getty copyright)

Many gamers might know about Epic's big event this year. The Fortnite World Cup! It has a prize tag of 100 million dollars which can bee converted into 77,054,00 pounds. Epic Games's Fortnite is the world's most popular game due to its Battle Royale mode. Although Epic Games has mainly focused on their skirmishes they have now told the Fortnite Community about this big event back in July of 2018. Many speculate the qualification events will start early this year. This is due to Limited Time Modes (or LTMs) that are mostly tournament related and great practice for the players. Also another piece of evidence is that these new LTM's are mostly solo or duo's which ironically is what the tournament is going to be based on. You must have a great level of experience to actually get into the tournament. This event will be held by ESPORTS just like any other gaming competitions. The date of this event is unknown to the the public but we know it will happen in the autumn of this year. We will keep you posted.

Scientists have found evidence that one of the world's rarest sharks is alive and well, living off the Welsh coast. Sightings from fishing boats suggest the mysterious angel shark is nesting in Welsh waters, but still nobody knows exactly where. The shark's only known habitat is the Canary Islands, where the animals have been filmed on the seabed. Wales could be a key habitat for the critically endangered shark, which is from an ancient and unique family, flat sharks, that spend much of the time camouflaged on the bottom of the seabed, where they lie in wait for fish. Once common across the east Atlantic and Mediterranean seas, historic records suggest the Welsh coast may have been an important habitat. Angel sharks have become increasingly rare because of a number of threats, including habitat disturbance, pollution and accidental fishing catches. This shark could be kept captive, unlike the Great White, as it does not have a red muscle but it is so rare to get hold of. We have almost no idea of this creature in terms of habitat.

An Australian woman was bitten by a carpet python 1.5 metres long while sitting on the toilet in Australia in Brisbane last Tuesday. The uninvited guest came up the pipes and surprised the woman and gave her the fright of her life. Mrs Richards said "she felt a sharp tap and turned around too see a snake that looked like a longneck turtle receding back into the bowl." She then called Ms Zeleny who was an expert. She stated the 59 year old had dealt with it like a champion. Since they are not venomous, she treated the bite with antiseptic.

North Korea officially agreed to get rid of all its nuclear weapons when Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, visited the country in October. The special envoy for North Korea, Stephen Biegun, stated that the country pledged to rid all nuclear material enrichment facilities. However he also noted that a complete list of all its nuclear assets will be needed before the deal is official. Experts believe the country has more than one unknown nuclear fuel enrichment site other than the declared facility at Yongbyon, north of Pyongyang, and question how the destruction of all facilities could be fully verified. President Trump also recently reported there had been ' tremendous progress' in the two countries relationship. At the Oval Office, last Thursday, the controversial president stated he would soon be revealing the date of the next meet up with Kim Jong-un. After meeting up in Singapore for the first meeting between a sitting US president and a North Korean leader, they signed an optimistic but vague declaration of their commitment to denuclearisation. Since then little progress has been made.

Everybody knows those big stone heads. You know, the ones with the massive noses? Moai are stone statues of human figures carved by the local people on Easter Island in eastern Polynesia between the 1250s and 1500s. The statues are on the slope of a volcano. The famous carvings are massive, though the heads we see today are only a small part of the original, whole statue.The whole statue is massive, they can be up to 40 feet tall and 75 tons in weight. Scientists have finally discovered what the heads' meanings are. They are placed where they are because the heads are near water sources, perhaps they were to guide people to the rivers. This is very exciting as scientists and historians have been pondering over these chunks of stone for centuries.

Simon Cowell , the celebrity, ditched his mobile phone ten months ago. He has declared that he is now feeling happier since then, even though it was strange at first. The X Factor judge has said that he is very annoyed about adults being on their phones all the time.  "It has been so good for my mental health," he said. "It's a very strange experience but it really is good for you and it has absolutely made me happier. The thing I get irritated with is when you have a meeting - everyone's on their phone - and I was probably in that place. You just can't concentrate." Children and  teenagers are often accused of being on their phones too much. In America, there are health clinics for young people who are addicted to their phones. Also, in the UK there is an app that rewards you for being away from your phone. Could you do that? Who knows? However, it's not just kids. It's also adults. A 2017 survey told us that just over half of adults check their phones within 15 minutes of waking up. Now other celebrities are dumping their phones. The question is, could you do that?

The magic of Harry Potter is being depicted in a new set of stamps to celebrate the popular films. The 15 stamps feature characters including Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Ginny Weasley and Neville Longbottom. Modes of transport from the films such as Hogwarts Express, Hadgrid's enchanted motorbike, the flying Ford Anglia and the Knight Bus are also included. The stamps include hidden details that are only visible under ultraviolet light. The style of the “1” depicting the value on each of the stamps will mirror the font used for the films. Philip Parker, of Royal Mail, said: “The Harry Potter movies continue to thrill and delight audiences of all ages. The goal with our stamps is to capture the excitement of the wizarding world and the heroism of the students of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.” Letters are delivered by owls in the films, but the new stamps are available in post offices from October. If you're a fan of a good old themed stamp collection then the Royal Mail website is the place to be. There’s a whole bunch of other stamp options on the Royal Mail website, ranging from professors (including Snape!) to individual characters and even envelopes and postcards. Take a look at some of the options.  The new set of Potter stamps will be released by Britain’s Royal Mail on October 16. These are no ordinary stamps – they have secret details that require the touch of a wizard to uncover. Each stamp will include hidden details that will only be revealed when it is placed under ultraviolet light.

It is always better no deal than a bad deal. Isn't that right?     According to the vote to leave the European Union, we will have to leave the European Union in March 2019. With three months and counting until Britain leaves the EU, both sides want an exit agreement. But they still can't settle on one key point: how to keep the border free and open between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. They have not found a solution for what to do (apparently they're some of the best politicians in the world). On Saturday the  twentieth of October there was a march to Parliament Square. Just after noon on Saturday at Green Park in central London, the announcer had only one message. There I was among the shuffling crowds that packed the roads and thronged the pavements. The UK economic and political landscape has been dominated by BREXIT over the past two and years. Is it worth it? If it looks like it's going to leave us all worse off, shouldn't we have the chance to give our opinion on BREXIT? Especially after many people have changed their minds. Theresa May says she is taking the right decisions for Britain. Really? Some people have said that we may need a new prime minister to get BREXIT but no one knows if it is true.

Nuclear fusion is a new sort of energy technology that could vastly increase the amount of cheap, clean energy. Without that kind of technology, the future looks decidedly bleak for millions of people on this planet: water and food shortages leading to famine and war. Scientists are trying to discover how they could harness the sun's light by using a chemical process called fusion. But the goal was thought to be 30 years away. Now several start ups are talking about how they can make fusion possible sooner. I hope they are right. We have to make sure that we do not waste the sun's generous amount of cheap, clean energy.

At the annual Davos Forum where global leaders came together to debate economic policy, including how to tackle Climate Change, Sir David Attenborough warned that humankind has the power to exterminate whole ecosystems “without even noticing”, and urged all governments to treat the natural world with respect. It is true that a lot has to be tackled, but there are some good news worth mentioning: Many animal species are no longer seen as on the verge of extinction, because of great conservation efforts. These would include the mountain gorillas and the Rothschild giraffes. The population of mountain gorillas has risen by 10% because people are becoming more aware of the things they do and how they are effecting the wildlife. Animals are being specially protected if they are endangered species such as  giant Pandas, fin whales and white Rinos.    The population of grey and fin whales are slowly rising ever since hunting them became illegal. WWF worker says ''Our planet is amazing. what will you do to keep it that way?'' Inger Andersen from IUCN says ''These conservation successes are proof that the ambitious collaborative efforts of governments, businesses and civil society". Though these successes deserve to be highlighted,  but much still needs to be done. One of the biggest fails is the Amazon Rainforest as it is being deforested at an alarming rate, as well as our need to be aware of our very alarmingly high plastic consumption.

Ministers have marked a third runway as being an ''historic moment for the UK ", but many people disagree with the cabinet. You may be thinking what is the point of a third runway after all pollution is already bad in London. True pollution is not brilliant in London but their are plus sides too for a third runway at Heathrow airport. First of all, Heathrow is already falling behind other airports due to it only having two runways which means delays are more common because if one fails there is only one which is nowhere near enough to keep one of the world's busiest airports running smoothly. They are also proposing to add a sixth terminal which would increase Heathrow's capacity by 50 million annually. With other airports having 3-8 runways it is no wonder Heathrow is struggling to keep up with  other airports. Another plus side of the Heathrow expansion plans are that customs will be quicker and it is possible that  ticket prices might get lower. For airlines like British Airways, their landing tax will be cheaper, delays will become less and less frequent and with the increase in amount of gates BA will be able to fly more flights daily with cheaper prices which means London will be accessible to more people which means more money for shops and of course the government which will mean cheaper prices for everyone! You may be wondering why didn't Heathrow expand before. Well of course we would have done it before if there were no downsides. But there are several. Pollution is one and houses will be knocked down to make way for the expansion. Those locals are already living with atrocious noise and the government will rehouse them. Children living in the area will have to move and will have to get an education elsewhere which is bad for local schools but at least they would have moved away from noisy Heathrow. Unfortunately, moving schools is always a hassle and leaving home is always is always a sad and tricky time where things can get really upsetting. But this does not mean they won't settle and in 20 years if the proposal goes to plan maybe it will turn out that it was a good move. Heathrow's expansion has been debated for decades now and ultimately we won't know what the right decision was until the 2040s. There were of course other options. One was building a new airport on the Thames Estuary and closing down Heathrow. Another option was keeping Heathrow operational and making it a secondary International Hub and making the main airport Gatwick. The recent vote which was held on Tuesday the 26'th  June  was won by the government  415-119. This clearly shows that the MPs and the government are now backing the Heathrow plans. You may think public transport will get really busy on the underground but a new tube line going directly to Heathrow will increase the amount of space on the tube for people going to Heathrow. INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT HEATHROW: Did you know in 2015 alone over 75 million passengers passed through Heathrow? Did you know British airways operate over 40% of the gates at Heathrow and is the airline with the most gates at Heathrow. Second is Virgin Atlantic and third is Aer Lingus. Did you know that Heathrow has over 35 restaurants?

By Oliver, Sydney and Raphael On the 7th of February 2019, Emeliano Sala's body was recovered and identified. After the news had spread, Chelsea's German defender, Antonio Rudiger quoted the following: "Heartbreaking to hear the news about Emeliano Sala. Rest in peace! Thoughts to go out to the family and friends of Emeliano and the pilot." Sala had just joined Premier League side Cardiff City for £15m when the private jet he was on disappeared from radar. It was also carrying pilot David Ibbotson. This happened on 21 January. After three days of searching, crews of search men decided to give up. Sala's family pleaded them to keep on searching but they had already made their minds up so a privately funded search began. A woman later found a blue cushion on a beach in France's Cotentin Peninsula beach and recognised that it was a backrest of a seat, thought to be from Sala's plane. The plane was eventually found 63 metres under the sea.

 Things are not looking good for tennis,or Serena Williams. Wimbledon chairman Philip Brook said Serena Williams' meltdown in the U.S. Open final was 'not a good look for tennis' though he insists it would never happen at the All England Club. Serena was convinced that sexism was the cause of her loss to Naomi Osaka in New York, where she directed remarkable fury towards chair umpire Carlos Ramos.The 37-year-old American tennis superstar claimed women are treated differently to men after she received a series of strikes at a match. Seeking a 24th grand slam, Williams was initially outraged at receiving a scalding for coaching, insisting she had not taken guidance from her coach. She then picked up a point penalty for racquet abuse before shouting at Ramos, resulting in a game being docked for verbal abuse. She called the umpire a "thief" and a "liar."  Apparently, sexism isn't the only bad experience Serena has faced, from mocking her opening up about her experience of motherhood, to criticism of her behavior following her US Open defeat last month. Many people say the reaction to her behaviour has been notably sexist, with some referring to her as a 'spoilt brat' and 'classless'.
