I think it's to explain to parents what methods the school will be using so that any help parents give with homework will be using the same methods as at school, to ensure consistency and not to confuse the DC. I don't know about you, but number lines and partitioning were a completely new concept to me, and as for the grid method of multiplication...! grin

Yes DS's school do maths evening for parents who will still be told by their DC 'no that's not the right way'.
