Unity Primary Academy

“Giving every child every chance, every day.”


Welcome to Year 5 Coubertin Class


The class teachers for Coubertin are Mrs Collitt on Monday & Tuesday and currently Mr Borrett on Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. The class LSA is Mrs Watts. If you have a question or would like to contact us, please use the form at the bottom of this page.



We would like all children to read each night (or at least 3 times a week) for 10 minutes (or more) and have their reading record signed weekly by an adult at home. The reading record must be given to Mrs Watts every morning in order to gain points towards your reading certificates. If you have misplaced the reading record, a note can be written and signed by an adult instead.


PE and Kit:

PE is on a Wednesday afternoon with Mrs Sibley and Thursday afternoon with the Sports Coach. Children should bring their PE kit into school and change for the session. Their ears need to be clear of earrings and all jewellery removed. The school kit must be black or grey jogging bottoms or black shorts and a white t-shirt. The Unity purple jumper should be worn over the top. Please note, children should not be in full coloured tracksuits. Children will not be allowed to do PE if they do not have the correct footwear (trainers) due to health and safety. 





Home Learning:

Alongside reading each week, we encourage each child to visit the Times tables Rockstars and Mathletics websites to encourage independent learning skills. If your child does not know their login, please let us know.



We follow the 'Moving on Up' behaviour system which rewards children at the end of each day when they have shown excellent learning behaviours throughout the day.


Each week, we also focus on one of our key values:






Children can gain a certificate to recognise when they've met one of our values. Celebration Assembly is on a Friday morning.
