The children looked at another element of the weather today in geography, clouds. They discovered that cloud cover is measured in Oktas and they worked in pairs to create Okta grids which they could use to measure the amount of cloud cover in the sky today. They needed to look at the sky facing 4 different ways (North, South, East and West), counting the number of squares of their Okta grid that were filled and then find out the average amount by adding all of the different amounts up and dividing by 4. Some of the children were surprised to be using their maths skills in a geography lesson!
