  • All the school grounds are shown turned completely round to the right through out the episode.
  • We see Pat tell Ajay about painting the wall, but his lips do not move.
  • When the children leave school, Lucy is nowhere to be seen.
  • When Sara is making the cakes, the clock still reads 3.30 which is what time it was when Nisha left the cafe.
  • When Nisha finishes painting the rainbow, she has a German accent.
  • When the grown-ups reappear from under the tarpaulin, Pat is nowhere to be seen.
  • It is a wonder how the paint does not splash over Pat's uniform whilst he is grabbing the pots.
  • The episode looks like it takes place during the afternoon even in the morning.
  • The violet coloured stripe on the wall is actually more like a light lavender coloured stripe.
