Creating an Outdoor Oven for the School

The school’s new oven is almost ready for baking.  The first step was making a sand dome of the proper proportions.  Yoko Yeaton, Daisy Nursery teacher, came out to help build the sand form.

The next step was checking the shape against our template.  Still needs a little more sand on the sides.

A mixture of earth, sand and water was used to form the oven walls.  After the clay walls dried, the sand was dug out by 4th grade teacher Aria Nevin.



Movement & Gym teacher Vanya Yoors lends a hand.  The wheelbarrow was full of sand before we were done.  Next steps — firing the oven to dry it, applying a layer of insulation, and putting a roof over the top.   (Top two photos by Anita Brewer Siljeholm)
