Children from The Co-operative Childcare in Littlehampton visited Fairlight nursing home in Rustington as part of ongoing intergenerational work.
The pre-school children got the residents singing and dancing then spoketo them all about what they used to do for a job.
Lucy Crouch, deputy nursery manager, said: “We did a boogie mites session, which is part of our extra curriculum at the nursery.
“Some of our pre-schoolers also attended a Forest School session, where they used various tools and learned how to whittle.
“They made name tags using wood and made a camp fire.”
