    I just wondered if anyone had done anything similarI and what information they had included. I'm going to go through the expectations for each year group and then go through calculating with fractions.

    You might find that many parents do not understand fractions or decimals unless they work where such ideas are used.Percentages maybe but i doubt that as well.
    I would have a quiet word with a few parents you can ask and see how they feel.Chances are they might recognise the numeral.but not able to use them to work out sums and problems.
    From past experience I have found parents will promise but dont always deliver.for whatever reason.
    You could on the other hand send a note home telling them what you intend without having a meeting and saving you a lot of time.
    Best of luck

    Meant to say plenty of worksheets on sites to help with ideas such as Primary resources

    I think that what you include depends on the purpose of this session. What is the purpose?
