Hand orchestra: teamwork and topic exploration

author avatar

You’re downloading this resource from ArtisEducation


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 different 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.
