About Year 5

Mrs Ijima, Miss Gibson, Miss Lofthouse and Miss James enjoy the support of Miss Campbell, Mrs Pollock, Ms Ellis and Mr Skilling in Year 5.

Year 5 has some very interesting topics like the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings or Earth and Space so it’s fun to teach. We enjoy some great trips, for example Tatton Park and the Museum of Science and Industry. We also have some wonderful school visitors, like the mobile Planetarium.

Meet your teachers


Mrs Ijima

Hi, I'm Mrs Ijima.

I have worked in Year 5 for many years and I love teaching here because of all the interesting topics we have which I look forward to exploring with you! Mrs Pollock will be in class to help and support us. I am also one of the English Leaders for the school so if you have any ideas or feedback about the subject (reading, writing and spelling) or any other issues, please let me know. 

Being a teacher keeps me very busy but out-of-school I spend a lot of time at gyms and sporting activities with my children (and a bit for me!) and can often be spotted in parks at weekends.


Miss Gibson

Hi, I am Miss Gibson!

This is my 5th year at GMJS and first year as the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO). I look forward to this year being full of enjoyable learning, teamwork and plenty of fun along the way! I am keen to build strong working relationships with all parents, so please do not hesitate to contact me with any queries you have.


Miss Lofthouse and Miss James

Hi, we are Miss Lofthouse and Miss James!

This will be our 2nd and 1st year in Year 5 at Great Moor Junior School and we are really looking forward to working together in the new year and having you all in our class!

Although being teachers and mums keeps us very busy out-of-school, we love spending time with friends and spending our time outside: running, walking or exploring parks. We enjoy learning about the world and going on holidays both in and out of the UK.

We also really enjoy teaching reading and if anybody needs any recommendations for Year 5 books, we have read lots of them - please ask!

We have lots of exciting topics for you including Viking and Anglo Saxons, The Earth, Sun and Moon and Design and Technology projects! We hope that you are all ready for a year of working hard as a team, building confidence and of course having lots of fun and laughs along the way.

If you have any questions or would like more information on anything, please don’t hesitate to contact either of us.
