As part of our Christopher Columbus history day Elephants walked to Ilfracombe Harbour to investigate the Geography of our town. We first stopped near the Landmark Theatre to find out how Christopher Columbus used a compass to navigate the seas. We found North, East, South and West directions and we looked carefully to see what we could see to draw it. We then walked on through the town looking for clues about how old the buildings were and when they were built. We also looked at how the harbour wall has changed over time. We stopped for our morning snack and drink on the pier and then finally we walked on to Verity to see her welcoming the boats into the harbour.
