Website Links and Activity Resources

Please find below links to websites and activity resources that children and families may find fun and interesting.  We hope they offer some support during self-isolation and absence from school. 

If you have any useful links that may help other families, please email them to me at thelighthouseclub@mount.wirral.sch.uk and I will continue to add to the list.  Thank you to those that have contributed.

From all of us at the Lighthouse Club, we would like to wish you all well and hope to see you all soon.  Many thanks, Kim Murphy
