Pupils needing extra support: Pair or form small groups to give a pitch at different intervals, independent but stood all together. Narrow the number of questions asked. Can be provided with a copy of the Activity: Product pitch guided plan, which includes fill-the-gap sentences for the children to complete with their own information. Encourage the children to read from their Activity: Product pitch plan sheet when answering questions.


Pupils working at greater depth: Should work independently. Should be asked additional questions by the visitors to challenge these pupils further. Should be encouraged to give detailed answers in their Activity: Product plan and annotation on their poster.
