Forest schooling allows children to take risks and attempt new challenges they would not face in home environment or classroom. There are opportunities for children to try more risky activities such as tree climbing and building fires. This adds a sense of excitement and adventure for the children, who are free to explore and manipulate the environment around them using all of their senses.
The weather has no impact upon forest schools, whether it be rain or shine, snow or winds, the children will be outside making the most of the experience. This is especially fun for children who tend to be sheltered in bad weather as they are given the chance to get mucky and wet!
