Good morning, I'm Jenny - you're watching Newsround this Monday.
Our top story now to the first ever winner of The Voice Kids.
It all came down a nerve-wracking final last night, but it was
Jess Folley who smashed Beyonce's Love On Top, dazzling
the judges and taking the prize, with Will.i.am joking she should
take on the grown-ups in the adult version of the show.
After her big win, Jess thanked her coach Pixie Lott
and called her fellow contestants her "best friends".
And massive news for Whovians this morning,
as the new Doctor has been revealed.
Oh, my God, it's a girl!
It's a woman!
I might cry!
..is a woman!
I cannot believe it, they did it!
Oh, my God, cool!
I'm shocked still.
What a good choice.
For me, as a girl, this is something that I never
thought was possible, ever.
There are always doubts when there's a new Doctor.
It's a brilliant actor, Jodie Whitaker's a brilliant actor.
It's all going to be fine, but what's interesting is it's
all going to be very different.
That's right, Jodie Whitaker has been announced as the 13th
Time Lord, in a trailer at the end of the Wimbledon men's single final.
Jodie is the first woman to play the character.
She'll start when the Doctor regenerates
in the Christmas special.
And we want to hear from you - what do you think of
the new Doctor and why?
What are you expecting from the new Time Lord?
Head to Newsround online and let us know.
Next up we're talking Sats.
For loads of you they're over, but that hasn't stopped a huge row
over the way they've been marked.
Ricky's been investiagting.
Two tests with the same question and the same answer,
but one has been marked right and the other is wrong.
That was a real question in a recent Sats test
for 10 to 11-year-olds, but it's the way these questions
have been marked that's got a lot of people scratching their heads.
So we've got some examples right here, and we want these guys to see
if they can tell what's right and what's wrong.
I think it's right because they did put the letters
in the correct place.
I think it's right.
Well, I think the commas are inserted in the right place
but I think it looks a bit dodgy.
So should that matter, the way it goes?
No, because the student knows how to do it, but they're just
being told off for not doing it right.
Well, here's the problem.
Although children answered the right question, some failed to get a mark
because of the shape of their semicolon and commas.
Others got marked down for not putting their answer inside a box,
even though it didn't tell you you would get marked down
if you went outside the lines.
So, is this fair?
I think it's unfair because the person who has written
the comma like that could have got 99, which is one mark
under the pass mark 100.
I think this is the wrong way to test people.
They should have told them then they could have known
that they should have done it right.
If you can see a semicolon, then you can see a semicolon.
It tells you to put it in the right place,
which is what these people have done, but they've still lost
the mark even though they've done the question as it said.
Some teachers have spoken out on social media, saying they weren't
told about the marking rules.
So we got in touch with the people who come up with the test,
as well as the Department for Education.
They're the people in Government in charge of schools.
The Government told Newsround that they wanted to make sure
children were using and forming punctuation correctly and had given
advice to people marking it to make sure it was fair.
And Pearson, the company in charge of marking your tests,
told us that mistakes in marking are rare but they want teachers
who are worried to get in touch so they can look into it.
It's been an incredible two weeks of tennis.
But Wimbledon came to a close for another year -
and what a day for Roger Federer!
He became the first man ever to win Wimbledon eight times,
beating Marin Cilic from Croatia in the men's singles final.
He won in straight sets - the first man to win the title
without dropping a set in 41 years!
And in the mixed doubles, it was Jamie Murray and his partner
Martina Hingis who came out on top.
They beat fellow British player Heather Watson
and her partner Henri Kontinen, who were the defending
champions, in straight sets.
That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
