The BBC have sent these for magicians into your schools.
They are some of the hottest magicians in the country.
Our magicians went undercover
and they pretended to be supply teachers.
Do you think you could spot a magician pretending to be a teacher?
This is Fergus, he's a magician with loads of tricks up his sleeve
and he's going to use them undercover as a supply teacher.
The cameras are set,
and none of the class realise that they are being filmed.
With science experiments, they don't always go right.
In fact, sometimes they go badly wrong.
Hopefully, that won't happen today.
Fergus has got the class's full attention with that -
they don't suspect a thing.
If your teacher could come up to the front of the class
and help me out, that would be fantastic.
This is Sarah's big moment.
We've got a towel so she doesn't get too wet - hopefully!
Now he's really got their attention.
There is nothing funnier than your teacher getting wet!
Now, Sarah, it if you could hold onto that bucket for me.
Oh, careful, Sarah, that bucket's full of water!
Now, in here I have got a bottle of water.
What will happen if I turn that bottle of water upside down?
Turn it the other way round? Yes?
If I turn the bottle of water upside down, of course,
the water runs out until the bottle is empty.
So, I'm going to leave that to refill.
Now, the experiment I've got planned for you doesn't just use
the bottle of water, it also uses a piece of paper.
What do you guys think will happen if I take back my bottle of water,
which is a bit too full,
and I now place a piece of paper on top of the bottle,
and now turn the whole thing upside down?
You, at the back.
Let's see what happens.
So, if I turn that bottle of water upside down...
you'll see, and this is pretty cool,
that piece of paper sticks.
It's definitely cool, but it's not magic yet, it's still science.
Wouldn't it be amazing if I could remove that piece of paper
and all that water stayed in the bottle?
Wouldn't that be cool?
Sometimes, if you have just the right temperature in the room
and just the right pressure in the bottle...this can happen.
Fasten your seatbelts,
this is where the science stops as the magic begins.
Now, who would rather I did this over the bucket...
or over Sarah's head? Which one do you think?
-Sarah's head! Sarah's head!
Oh, I don't know. Did you say, "Over the bucket?"
-Over her head?! ALL:
Oh, I couldn't do that, I couldn't do that. Could I?
I suppose she has got a towel, hasn't she?
I'm really sorry, Sarah, if this doesn't work.
You could have a very, very wet teacher. Watch.
THEY ALL CHATTER
They might have wanted to see her get soaked,
but they can't deny it's an awesome trick.
Look at that, boys.
Fergus has made the water stay in the bottle.
That's not scientifically possible,
and the magic is about to get better.
What's amazing is in this bucket I have some little pieces of stick,
and what's incredible is even though nothing comes out of the bottle,
these pieces of stick go in.
Two might cause too much pressure in the bottle, we'll see.
The sticks are going in,
but there's no water coming out, and that's magic.
Now, the only way, actually, to get that water flowing again
is to exert more pressure outside of the bottle. Very good. Then it's in.
Squeezing it, exactly!
So, if I take the bottle
and I squeeze it, you will see all that water starts to flow again.
And, Sarah, you can go back to your seat. Thank you very much, Sarah.
The regular teacher has got away with it and so has Fergus,
but it's time to reveal his secret.
I've told you a little lie.
I am called Fergus, but I'm not actually a teacher...
I'm a magician.
What?! Oh, my! Cool!
And all of you guys have been set up by your teachers.
THEY ALL SCREAM
I thought it was impossible, but, actually, it was possible.
Would you realise your supply teacher was magic?
