Children create sounds following the small hand gestures of their partners, which are then developed into full body movements. In this example children work with the subject of fireworks (which may be fresh in their memory through New Year’s Eve celebrations), but the principle can be applied to dif More…ferent topics or subject areas throughout the year. Artis Specialist Russell Lucas (Gloop) demonstrates 'hand orchestra' working with Year 3/4 children from Ponsbourne St Mary's CE Primary School in Hertfordshire.
