Good morning, I'm Jenny, live with all the news you need
to know this Monday.
The new Doctor
The new Doctor is
The new Doctor is a
The new Doctor is a girl!
Your reactions to the new Time Lord.
And who became the first ever winner of The Voice Kids?
First, massive news for Whovians this morning.
The new Doctor has been revealed.
The new Doctor is a girl!
It's a woman!
It's Jodie Whittaker!
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 Whittaker'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 Whittaker has been announced as the 13th
Time Lord, in a trailer yesterday.
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.
And the first ever winner of The Voice Kids is...
That's right, it was Jess Folley who took
the prize in last night's final.
She smashed her version of Beyonce's Love On Top
in a performance so good Will.i.am even joked 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".
Next up we're talking Sats.
For loads of you they're over, but now there's 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, but Wimbledon has come
to a close for another year - and what a day for Roger Federer!
He's now the first man ever to win Wimbledon eight times,
beating Marin Cilic in the men's singles final.
He won in straight sets - the first man to win the title
And it was the battle of the Brits over in the mixed doubles,
with Heather Watson and Jamie Murray up against each other.
But it was Murray and his partner Martina Hingis who came out on top.
They beat Heather and her partner Henri Kontinen in straight sets.
Britain's Jordanne Whiley and partner Yui Kamiji took
a fourth successive Wimbledon women's wheelchair doubles title.
How's this for a celebration?
Lewis Hamilton won the British Grand Prix at Silverstone
for a record-equalling fifth time.
The historic win means he's within a point
of Sebastien Vettel halfway through the Formula One season.
Jonnie Peacock stormed to victory in the T44 100m final at the World
Para-athletics Championships in London, to claim
Britain's eighth gold medal.
The two-time Paralympic champion finished in 10.75 seconds
for his second world title.
And in the Tour de France yesterday, Britain's Chris Froome didn't let
a puncture stop him!
He swapped his back wheel for a new one in just 30 seconds!
And recovered brilliantly to defend his slim lead
in stage 15 of the race.
That's all from the team this morning, Newsround's
back right here at 4.20pm.
Have a brilliant day.
Roy gets stuck in a teapot in Little Roy next. Karim, it reminds me
of the time I got stuck in a kennel and mistaken for a dog!
But you are a dog. What?
