“They came up with some really interesting and wonderful ides borrowing a bit form here and there and creating some wonderful comics.
“It’s enjoyment of the subject really, we are trying to get the children to enjoy what they are doing, reading and looking at comics.
“It’s been brilliant, it’s been very enjoyable for them they have got immersed in it and it’s been a positive experience for them definitely.”
In addition to a copy of the class comic Mr Sutherland, who has been creating comics for over 25 years, also created a caricature of each of the children for them to take home.
Caricatures of the staff will be put on display in the school at a later date.
“They have been well received, they have been kind to the staff, we are thinking of putting them up in school somewhere,” Miss Watts added.
The work is aimed at helping the pupils with literacy skills such as story creation, containing a beginning, middle and end, as well as an awareness of writing for a particular audience.
Away from comics, Mr Sutherland is the man behind the world-famous Scottish Falsetto Sock Puppet Theatre, which is currently touring the UK and will appear at the Edinburgh Fringe in August. He is also the creator and executive producer of situation comedy showcase, The Sitcom Trials.
