Thank you. It might take a while but I will post again when I have mastered it all.

One week? !!!! It took me months to get anywhere near this! Very good indeed. One tip from me is to concentrate on trying to use "Alternate Fingering" as picking a run of notes with the same RH finger will make things more difficult as you improve, and that won't be so long! Look at Eric's post down the page "Tunes for Beginners" where I added Sunflower Dance with every RH finger shown for each note and give it a try again. This way you will be learning Sunflower Dance AND alternate fingering without even noticing.

That's one week at classic banjo. I have played music on other instruments for a long time and I sight read with Tenor banjo, mandolin and violin. But what I have to learn on the 5 string is where the notes are on the fingerboard. also the technique which is new to me having used a plectrum or a bow all my life. Thanks for the tip I will try to put it into practice.  I am enjoying the challenge.

Yeah, sounding good.  I second Ian, best now to learn alternate fingering than try to learn it later.  I know from experience.
