This is one of the school meals which Martha Payne photographed for her blog. She had carrot soup, pasta with meat and vegetables and more carrot, and yoghurt. Today we visit Scotland, to find out what a Scottish schoolgirl thinks of her school meals. And because the European Cup Football matches have reached an interesting stage, and poor old England have been knocked out by Italy, this might be a good time to learn a new football expression. Martha Payne is 9 years old. Martha is interested in the food at her school. Children in other schools, and in other countries, started to read Martha’s blog. And at this point, the bureaucrats who run the education system in the part of Scotland where Martha lives became aware of her blog. Martha’s headteacher told Martha the bad news, and Martha was sad and wrote a final blog post to say goodbye to her many readers. At this point, we will make a little diversion to talk about football. I like stories with a happy ending. Categories podcasts Tags

We are all British, right? Many phrases were used universally - for example LOL (Laugh Out Loud) - and for that you can probably blame rap music, text messaging, Facebook and popular TV programmes like Skins and Hollyoaks. But there were also wild variations, such as with the word for an attractive or beautiful girl. Paul Kerswill, a professor of linguistics at Lancaster University, said: "Young people try to make themselves out from younger children and parents and to some extent they are trying to create a code which teachers can't break." Prof Kerswill said: "Words are contagious. But he said despite some homogenous tendencies there was also a lot of "regional development". The phrase we chose was: "John's girlfriend is really pretty.
