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.

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.’

• 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.
