PRESTIGE…REVIVING THE PAST

Standard

Ġgantija Temples Collage

Standard

Making a collage using a vast range of different types, textures and colours of paper to create the Ġgantija temples from plan view.

The children were surprised by the legend behind the Ġgantija temples… it goes that a giantess called Sansuna, who was on a diet of only broad beans, has built the temples whilst carrying her baby daughter on one arm- hence the Mother and Daughter temple (one of the temples is larger than the other.)

A Dream in Ħaġar Qim

Standard

Setting off on a journey of exploring the beautiful Maltese pre-history whilst relaxing to rhythmic music … Here is our first lesson through which we were inspired from the temples of Ħaġar Qim.

The children had a go at painting on newspaper, experimenting where to cover or where not to cover text, to hint out the conflict of prehsistoric and modern touch. Coffee, sea salt and sugar were added to the paints to add stone texture inspired by Morisot.
