IT was a case of the generation game at a nursery in Greenock's east end as little ones proudly showed their grandparents what they have been learning.

Talented tots at Hillend Children's Centre were at the centre of a special event which showed their grannies and grandpas the skills they have been learning at the nursery.

Marilyn Cox, who is an early years education and childcare officer at the centre, said it was lovely to being the kids mixing together with the senior citizens.

They got involved in lots of different activities, including making soup and singing songs.

She said: "It went really well as all the grandparents enjoyed being part of the children's learning.

"They had the chance to see what they do on a day-to-day basis.

"The soup-making proved to be very popular and they also participated in a singing session which was really nice for them."

Marilyn said events like the grandparents day help build confidence for the children.

She said: "The kids get to show a lot of pride in their work.

"It was also a nice social event for the grandparents.

"They enjoyed coming in for a cup of tea, a scone and a chat."
