TAKING IT FURTHER

n What kind of clouds can you see right now ? There are four main types .

Cumulus – these are like puffy cotton balls in the sky and have flattish bottoms ! If you were asked to draw a standard cloud , chances are it ’ s a cumulus cloud you would draw .
Cirrus – these are thin and wispy and appear when the weather is good !
Nimbostratus – not as magical as they sound , these cover the sky in a dark grey layer and are so thick they can blot out the sun !
Stratus – these are flat and grey , with no lumps or bumps . They cause light rain and drizzle .
Polly would love to see your cloud pictures .
Don ’ t forget to send photos of your work to the address on the Readers ’ Page of the website , and we ’ ll share as many as we can .
