Good morning, I'm Jenny - you're watching Newsround this Monday.

0:00:130:00:19

Our top story now to the first ever winner of The Voice Kids.

0:00:190:00:24

Jess!

0:00:240:00:28

It all came down a nerve-wracking final last night, but it was

0:00:280:00:31

Jess Folley who smashed Beyonce's Love On Top, dazzling

0:00:310:00:33

the judges and taking the prize, with Will.i.am joking she should

0:00:330:00:36

take on the grown-ups in the adult version of the show.

0:00:360:00:39

After her big win, Jess thanked her coach Pixie Lott

0:00:390:00:41

and called her fellow contestants her "best friends".

0:00:410:00:43

And massive news for Whovians this morning,

0:00:430:00:45

as the new Doctor has been revealed.

0:00:450:00:47

Watch this.

0:00:470:00:51

Oh, my God, it's a girl!

0:00:510:00:53

It's a woman!

0:00:530:00:57

It's Jodie!

0:00:570:00:58

The Doctor...

0:00:580:00:59

I might cry!

0:00:590:01:00

..is a woman!

0:01:000:01:03

I cannot believe it, they did it!

0:01:030:01:05

Oh, my God, cool!

0:01:050:01:06

I'm shocked still.

0:01:060:01:09

What a good choice.

0:01:090:01:10

For me, as a girl, this is something that I never

0:01:100:01:13

thought was possible, ever.

0:01:130:01:14

There are always doubts when there's a new Doctor.

0:01:140:01:16

It's a brilliant actor, Jodie Whitaker's a brilliant actor.

0:01:160:01:18

It's all going to be fine, but what's interesting is it's

0:01:180:01:21

all going to be very different.

0:01:210:01:31

That's right, Jodie Whitaker has been announced as the 13th

0:01:330:01:36

Time Lord, in a trailer at the end of the Wimbledon men's single final.

0:01:360:01:39

Jodie is the first woman to play the character.

0:01:390:01:41

She'll start when the Doctor regenerates

0:01:410:01:43

in the Christmas special.

0:01:430:01:44

And we want to hear from you - what do you think of

0:01:440:01:47

the new Doctor and why?

0:01:470:01:48

What are you expecting from the new Time Lord?

0:01:480:01:50

Head to Newsround online and let us know.

0:01:500:01:53

Next up we're talking Sats.

0:01:530:01:54

For loads of you they're over, but that hasn't stopped a huge row

0:01:540:01:57

over the way they've been marked.

0:01:570:01:59

Ricky's been investiagting.

0:01:590:02:00

Two tests with the same question and the same answer,

0:02:000:02:04

but one has been marked right and the other is wrong.

0:02:040:02:12

That was a real question in a recent Sats test

0:02:120:02:16

for 10 to 11-year-olds, but it's the way these questions

0:02:160:02:18

have been marked that's got a lot of people scratching their heads.

0:02:180:02:21

So we've got some examples right here, and we want these guys to see

0:02:210:02:25

if they can tell what's right and what's wrong.

0:02:250:02:29

I think it's right because they did put the letters

0:02:290:02:32

in the correct place.

0:02:320:02:33

I think it's right.

0:02:330:02:35

It's wrong.

0:02:350:02:44

Well, I think the commas are inserted in the right place

0:02:440:02:47

but I think it looks a bit dodgy.

0:02:470:02:49

So should that matter, the way it goes?

0:02:490:02:55

No, because the student knows how to do it, but they're just

0:02:550:02:58

being told off for not doing it right.

0:02:580:03:00

Well, here's the problem.

0:03:000:03:03

Although children answered the right question, some failed to get a mark

0:03:030:03:10

because of the shape of their semicolon and commas.

0:03:100:03:12

Others got marked down for not putting their answer inside a box,

0:03:120:03:15

even though it didn't tell you you would get marked down

0:03:150:03:18

if you went outside the lines.

0:03:180:03:19

So, is this fair?

0:03:190:03:25

I think it's unfair because the person who has written

0:03:250:03:31

the comma like that could have got 99, which is one mark

0:03:310:03:34

under the pass mark 100.

0:03:340:03:35

I think this is the wrong way to test people.

0:03:350:03:37

They should have told them then they could have known

0:03:370:03:40

that they should have done it right.

0:03:400:03:42

If you can see a semicolon, then you can see a semicolon.

0:03:420:03:44

It tells you to put it in the right place,

0:03:440:03:47

which is what these people have done, but they've still lost

0:03:470:03:49

the mark even though they've done the question as it said.

0:03:490:03:52

Some teachers have spoken out on social media, saying they weren't

0:03:520:03:55

told about the marking rules.

0:03:550:03:56

So we got in touch with the people who come up with the test,

0:03:560:03:59

as well as the Department for Education.

0:03:590:04:01

They're the people in Government in charge of schools.

0:04:010:04:03

The Government told Newsround that they wanted to make sure

0:04:030:04:05

children were using and forming punctuation correctly and had given

0:04:050:04:08

advice to people marking it to make sure it was fair.

0:04:080:04:11

And Pearson, the company in charge of marking your tests,

0:04:110:04:14

told us that mistakes in marking are rare but they want teachers

0:04:140:04:17

who are worried to get in touch so they can look into it.

0:04:170:04:22

It's been an incredible two weeks of tennis.

0:04:220:04:25

But Wimbledon came to a close for another year -

0:04:250:04:27

and what a day for Roger Federer!

0:04:270:04:29

He became the first man ever to win Wimbledon eight times,

0:04:290:04:32

beating Marin Cilic from Croatia in the men's singles final.

0:04:320:04:34

He won in straight sets - the first man to win the title

0:04:340:04:37

without dropping a set in 41 years!

0:04:370:04:40

And in the mixed doubles, it was Jamie Murray and his partner

0:04:400:04:42

Martina Hingis who came out on top.

0:04:420:04:46

They beat fellow British player Heather Watson

0:04:460:04:49

and her partner Henri Kontinen, who were the defending

0:04:490:04:51

champions, in straight sets.

0:04:510:04:54

That's all from me, Newsround's back right here in about half an hour.
