Where angels fear to tread

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?

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?

Only is the word because say it’s “only a buffalo” means you do not know the dangers of the animal



c) What would have been a useful item to take on the walk to the lodge?
  A flashlight would be an excellent choice because it was a dark night and only little amounts of light and those lights were way off in the distance. Even the moon ans stars were gone because they were behind clouds.



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.


 “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread” refers to the author and his limited knowledge


 because if he had taking the wrong step and upset the buffalo as it says in Paragraph 5


 he would be rammed over by the buffalo or trampled and killed. Thankfully he treated the 


 animal like a New Zealand sheep which was just to wave it away.


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

       i. Never cross a buffalo in the night 

       Ii. Always learn about the place before you go there


The Winning side

The winning side which is based on a school girl named Nia and school politics. It also talks about Charisma and what it is. Nia is a shy girl who is determined to do what she thinks is right. While all the other Candidates wish the opposite maybe I should be more specific.  Behind there Library there is a Bush block which is a area that has a few trees. This place is the most peaceful place you will find here and one of the last places shy guys and gals go to relax, study, read and draw. The point i’m trying to make is Nia is trying her best to protect from the other candidates who are pushing to take it down and replace it with a sports court. But in the end Nia wins the hearts of all and takes the usurps the crown of Amy Armstrong and becomes the “Winning side”.

Planning Here:

Once upon a time in a land of light and happiness, there lived an ogre. A smelly hideous ogre who lived alone in a Dungeon inhaling a horrible Odour. Then there was a Princess, Her name was Fiona. She lived in a castle filled to the brim with some family members from Berlin. Then one day this ogre said “I will be off to find someone to Bewed” so he went off to find true love while the Princess was high up in the tower above. As she muttered to herself “Should I run off again” her father the king had just walked in. “Hello my daughter, are you alright” he said with a chuckle, “It’s your birthday dear, here have some Truckle”. As the King handed out a round cheese, his daughter the Princess let out a small sneeze. She then looked at him and then with a grin asked the delighted king “Please get my brother Tim” the king did exactly as told, he walked out the door and went for a stroll. Now back to the Ogre who had so much cheer, but when people saw him they ran in fear. 


This ogre began to feel really sad, but then he had become a tad bit mad. But then this ogre smelt a lovely scent, he turned around and off he went. He looked left then to the right and there it was a frog in his sight. He caught the frog and ate it so fast then suddenly behind him there was a blast. A wizard had come with such Powerful magic and what happened next was very tragic. While this was happening Fiona had just decided that she wanted someone to collide with. The princess left the tall tower, climbing also took her an hour. Back to the wizard being quite evil, in front of the castle with a banana peel. He throws the peel at the castle and turns it big, disturbing King Russell. The king shouted and pleaded for the wizard to stop, but the wizard began to hop. The ogre appeared in such a hustle, he broke down the door to the poor king’s castle. Fiona had heard all the commotion, she marched to the front, it was like she drank a speed potion.

But then she regretted coming to the front for the wizard had come to sweep her up. The Ogre saw this and stopped and with a dash punched the wizard back to the tower he once came. After doing this righteous deed he began to transform into a steed. But then into a mighty man with royal clothes, he also had all his fingers and toes. The princess saw this heroic prince and ran straight towards him with great happiness. “I found you, I found you” said the Princess and the story ends with one long Kiss. The End

This was our literacy task, A narrative story about a Ogre and a Princess. We also had to add in a Climax and a Anti-Climax.
