Miss Adolf has prepared a week of punctuation catch-up classes and Hank is incredibly bored. A bit of crafty ego-playing by Mr Rock soon has things taking an inspirational turn!

Further details

It's the last week of term and most of the school are taking part in a fun activities week... except Hank. Miss Adolf has prepared a week of punctuation catch-up classes and Hank is incredibly bored. But when Mr Rock tricks Miss Adolf into swapping tasks, the catch-up classes become much more fun.

Mr Rock tasks the pupils with doing a presentation on someone they admire and suggests to Hank that he does his presentation on Einstein as Hank and Einstein have a lot in common. Hank can't initially see the connection, until he starts to do some research...
