Where Angels Fear to Treas – 9DSENG

Task 3:

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?


“But they weren’t lions, only buffalo.”

The word “only” implies that the author was scared of encountering a lion, but when seeing a buffalo the danger of the animal slipped their mind. 


c) What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?

The sentences from the text -“It was very dark.” and  “We could see the lights of the lodge ahead, but there was no moon,” – can tell us that a flashlight would be needed to see in the dark. 


d) Explain how the saying in the final line, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread”, goes with the story.

EG. “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.

“This saying goes with the story, because it matches the problem in the text. The group of people went to the buffalo and waved their arms around as if they were sheep in New Zealand. Malina and here friends were not educated on the dangers, the local man asked about it said –

‘Buffalo?’ … ‘They are one of Africa’s most dangerous animals when their way is blocked. Never upset a buffalo! You would have no chance at all of running fast enough to get away from it.’ ”

       ii. Everything can be dangerous. Even something like a spoon, don’t underestimate things. Always be cautious, and again think before you do. 


Escape Room Extension

For this term in extension we have been doing escape rooms. I was in a group with Angelica,Aye and Finau. We got to come up with our own theme and puzzles. Our theme was based on the horror movie smile. We planned on doing a physical escape room. Today we started on cutting the keys out for one of the puzzles. Our next step is to finish off the keys and start putting things together.

Self Reflection – Future Aspirations

Our morning consisted of a program called “Future Aspirations”. 6 men and women came into our space. They talked about their careers and their struggles through life. Tyrone, David, Tanielu, Shaniah, Tia and Haare. Afterwards we asked questions about everything they said. The main thing I took away from the talk was: “Don’t be your own barrier” and “It’s better to be an alien than a sheep”. The first one means, don’t think that you can’t do something without trying. The second one means, don’t be a follower be different. I really enjoyed this and was so interested in their speeches.
