Task 3:

Where angels fear to tread


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

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?




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


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.

Cartoons – Persuasive Writing

I strongly believe that cartoons have been evolving over time and have been getting better and better quality and have been created into movies,anime,kid shows etc.

For example, the Simpsons have been on TV since 1987 and the more times past the show gets better quality and evolves, they earned over 750 million dollars through time.

Fantasmagorie was the first ever made cartoon in 1908, first ever cartoon to ever have sound was Disney’s steamboat Willie in 1928 these cartoons were famous because they were created for kids and others.

From this we can conclude that cartoons have been here since the 1900s and that they were created for kids and others. They also were different quality through time and changes.

Dear Whittakers,


On the day you released your new packaging title I was surprised and didn’t know how to react to it, but I want to Thank you for doing that.


It was a big step for your Company to make, and it made us Māori proud! 


But you may or may not know why it’s good and healthy to be using Te Reo Māori. But one reason everyone can relate to is that it is New Zealand’s first official language, and that it really brings out the Māori culture which if I were to rate it I would rate it a five because like the Māori used in Te Reo gives off a great theme to New Zealand.


Keep up the great work!
