Learning Welsh in Osbaston
Because we are a school in Wales, all pupils at the school learn Welsh.
It does not matter if you don't speak Welsh at home or don't know any Welsh words! You soon will!
Our Criw Cymraeg are a group of pupils from Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 who work together to promote Welsh and to make Welsh visible in our school. You will see signs, pupils' work, posters, pictures, photographs and books all around our school.
Apps To Help Learn Welsh
We use different apps in school which help us enjoy Welsh.
Why don't you try them at home.....

On 1st March every year, we celebrate Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant, St David's Day.
St David is the patron saint of Wales and it is traditional for all school to celebrate the day by dressing up in traditional costume or in Welsh rugby jerseys and holding an Eisteddfod.
An Eisteddfod is a celebration of Welsh music and culture and children take part in events including performing music, poetry and songs. The Year 6 pupils take part in a very special ceremony called 'Chairing of the Bard'. One pupil's work is awarded the best in the class and they are honoured and presented with a unique chair in commemoration for their effort.
This year we took part in our first Cluster Eisteddfod. Representatives from Years 2,3,4,5 and Year 6 competed against pupils form our local cluster schools: Overmonnow Primary, Kymin View Primary, Raglan Church in Wales and Llandogo Primary Schools.
This was a very enjoyable experience and a wonderful experience. Overmonnow were overall winners and were presented with a carved wooden lovespoon which will be awarded to the winning school each year.
