Where angels fear to tread

Where angels fear to tread


This task is about reading to find information and make inferences.

Read ‘Where angels fear to tread‘, then answer the following questions.




How old is Ngorongoro Crater?

About  Two million years old 



What word does the writer use in the middle of the story to indicate that he wasn’t scared of buffalo?

I think it is only because they were relieved that it wasn’t a lion because they didn’t know the danger of a buffalo.

c) What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?
  I think it would be a flashlight because in the text it says in the text that it was very dark.
d) Explain how the saying in the final line, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, goes with the story.
  “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” refers to a person who behaves impulsively; they don’t think before reacting. The saying goes with the story because a group of people, Halina and the speaker travel to Africa before knowing very little about it e.g. dangers, animals, people.

 I think this saying connects to the story because the characters rush in to their trip. They tried to move the buffalo without knowing what they were capable of. This was foolish because the buffalo are the most dangerous animals in Africa if their way is blocked.


e) What two lessons could be gained from this story?

       i. Don’t go near a buffalo anless you know to tain it .

       Ii. Never to show your fear because animals can sense that you are scared.


Mana Ako Trip

Last week on Thursday a group of Mana Ako students went to the fresh gallery in Ōtara. When we got to the art gallery we meet Dema and Rachael that showed us around and showed us the different pieces of artwork that other people made.  One of my favourite things that we did there was this art activity that we did, it helped me learn a different art styles. This Exhibition was “MY DEAM CALLED SIKE” The different artworks made me feel that I could do art. This gallery is a real good gallery to go to because it is free and it is good for school trips. Thank you to the people that showed us around the gallery and around all the different art pieces. I would rate this experience a 5/5 because it was a real fun experience. Here are some photos from the day.
