CBBC have sent these four 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.
D'you think you'd be able to tell if your teacher started doing magic?
This is John, he loves milk and
he's a cool cat - in his own mind.
He has magic skills and he is going to use them
as an undercover supply teacher.
The hidden cameras are set.
Is it your school? Is it your class?
My wife works in a zoo. It has some advantages.
It means that when she comes home, she smells a bit.
However, she gets to bring some of the smaller, friendlier animals home.
I've brought one of these animals with me.
Actually, when I say I've brought one,
I've brought lots and lots of them.
It is called the Peruvian almond fly.
They are very small,
in fact, they are so small they are invisible to the naked eye.
They live in big groups in a swamp. I've brought some with me.
This is just a small group. I thought I'd let you see them.
Do you want to see them?
They're nodding, they must believe he's a real teacher. Would you?
Hopefully, we may be able to have a look at them. I've got them in this
container here. Those are the Peruvian almond flies.
'The insects don't really exist, do they, John?
'It is all part of your trick. But it is a good one.'
There are about 5,000 of them in there.
It is possible to get these out but I have to keep control of them
under this piece of cloth.
Do you mind if I get them out and show you them? Is that all right?
They're very well behaved.
I need someone to come and hold the container for me.
'There's no shortage of volunteers - he's got the class taken in.'
You look like you'd be good, come out here. What is your name? Anya?
'Anya doesn't know it yet, but she's about to become
'a magician's assistant.'
Can you feel the flies flying around there a little bit? Yes?
You can feel them?
'She thinks she can feel them, but she can't really, it is
'part of the trick.'
Can you see any of them? No?
They're invisible to the naked eye.
We can get them out and have a look, if I just open it.
They shouldn't fly out, they should just stay on the leaves.
If you listen carefully, you can sometimes hear them.
They make a noise like the miaowing of a cat, except silent.
If I just put this cloth over here there like that.
We should be able to wake them up and see if we can get them to come out.
A little tap...
Whoo! There they are. They are out now.
They're a little bit lively. They will calm down.
OK. That is good.
That's good, they're very calm, if they get ex... Whoa!
They must be strong to shift John around.
Except that is some amazing acting there, mate.
Anya, if I just lift that up, can you see them?
No, it is difficult to see them, isn't it? Whoa!
They're quite... Wahay-hay!
Oh, dear me. LAUGHTER
Just pull them back now. I'll try and let you have a look.
When they are in a big group like this, it is possible to see them.
If I just lift that up, can you see them? Ah...
-They've got out.
'I bet the class feels itchy already.'
Can anybody see them?
No? OK. They're just above your head, keep still.
They are over there now. They have landed. Keep still. They're up again.
They are here. No, they are not here either. Erm...
Ha! I've got them! No, I haven't, erm...
Oh! I see them, I see them now. There they are.
They are a bit high, they're coming down.
Coming down, here they are. They are there. Just there.
I'm going to get them. Keep still. I'm going to get them.
Perfect. There we are. We've got them.
'He's convinced the class he has caught them, great skills.'
Whoo! I will try and put them back in the box.
I will try and put them back in the box.
'The insects are not only invisible, they're not really there.
'It's all been an amazing trick. Time for John to reveal his secret.'
Close the box like that. Wonderful.
We've got them. Now, I have got a little bit of a confession to make.
Erm...my wife does not actually work in a zoo.
Although sometimes when she comes home from work she does smell a bit.
In fact, I'm not a real teacher, I am a magician.
There are hidden cameras in the classroom filming you.
We have one up there and we have another one in that box over there.
There's another one in that box over here. You can give them all a wave.
'They are loving it, look! He did it.'
