Over the next few weeks, you will have the chance to complete some tasks that will be passed onto your new teacher! We are going to base these around David Walliams' books – ‘The world’s worst children’. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the books, there are lots of good clips online however this isn't essential to complete the tasks!
Send any work to your future teacher's email account, Miss Mackley at firstname.lastname@example.org or complete them on teams and submit as usual.
Check out some more fantastic work here! Some great reasons for wanted children ;)
Task 3 - Earnest Ernest’s Instruction Leaflet
‘Meanwhile the robot’s movements were becoming increasingly jerky and unpredictable.
It was making even more beeping and buzzing noises.
Soon sparks were flying out of its eyes; smoke was billowing from its head.
The robot’s tickling tentacles were now moving so fast they were becoming a blur.
“NO! HA HA! NO!” cried Professor Drolling as tentacles tickled every conceivable part of his body.
“I THINK I AM GOING TO WET MYSELF!”’
Earnest Ernest’s Instruction Leaflet
READ THE STORY OF EARNEST ERNEST ON PAGES 209 – 240 or watch his story above.

Task 4 - Nigel NIT-BOY’s COMIC STRIP
'Nigel had his superpower. He had his name. His costume was on. He was NIT-BOY! At once he began his SUPERVILLAINY.
The next morning he strode into school, his cape flapping in the wind.
First, Nigel vowed to get revenge on his geography teacher, Mr Drumhum. Nigel found geography boring and spent most of his lessons reading comic books. Mr Drumhum had given the boy detention after detention.
Now NIT-BOY stood at the door to the classroom. Initially there were hoots of laughter from the other children. What with his costume and shrubland of hair, the would-be SUPERVILLAIN did look quite a sight. “HA HA HA!”
However, the laughter turned to silent awe as NIT-BOY called out his first command. “NITS! SWARM!”
The billions of nits that were whirling round his head formed a black mass next to him.’
READ PAGES 54 – 80 NIGEL NIT-BOY or watch the story on the youtube link above.
Task: Create a comic strip to tell one of the tales of NIT-BOY’s revenge.
You could use one of the events already in the story or you could use your imagination to make up your own.
Ideas to include:
• You could retell the nit attack on Mr Drumhum; Mrs Droop or Mr Sourchops.
• Think about three parts to your story – the beginning, the middle and the end.
• Use pictures, action words and speech bubbles to show action.
