The first full title from the collaborative team of Jumping World Studios & Number Fun, breaks the mould for typical elementary Key Stage 1 math games.
Rather than relying on math quizzes and simple sums common to the genre, Farmer Pete adds a great narrative within the 4 games which make up this exciting app.
Help farmer Pete tend his sheep in this fun and interactive set of games or watch the animation, which accompanies the theme tune to this app. Choose between 5 different Number Bond settings (Number bonds to 5,10,15,20 & Random) in Find,Wash & Feed my sheep & Score points by catching my sheep dancing in Dancing sheep. Find my sheep:-
Some of Farmer Petes sheep have wandered off and hes worried they wont be back in time for tea. Help Hugh farmer Petes trusty sheepdog find the wayward sheep by guiding Hugh around the farm by tapping where you want him to go to, then if you think hes near a sheep just tap the search icon in the corner of the screen. If he finds one the sheep will run back to the pen. Keep looking till theyre all safe. Dancing sheep:-
Oh no theres still 10 sheep left out in the upper field they like dancing along to Petes song, score points as you tap the cheeky sheep and send them on their way again. They start dancing in time to the lyrics and the quicker you tap them when they start the more points you score. You can even score points by tapping the ducks that fly past just to distract you. Wash my sheep:-
(Warning: this minigame may not work 100% on iPads)
Now its nearly time for tea but they need to get cleaned up before they can eat. Theres only enough soap powder for some of them to get clean right now, so some will have to wait till Pete gets back from the grocers with some soap. Can you help by getting the others cleaned up. Drag the right number of sheep who can get washed now onto the sheep-o-matic and close the gate when you think youve matched the number bond. Be careful if you too high or too low theyll all escape into the field again and get muddy.
Pete will take care of the rest while you help get them fed at tea time.
In the full game you can choose between 5 different Number Bond settings. Feed my sheep:-
Its teatime and the sheep need feeding, Pete has very fussy sheep. Some of them like ice cream and some of them like jelly (Sheep are very fickle) tap a sheep then tap the table you think theyd like to sit at. Then ring the dinner bell to see if youve got the number bond right. If you get it wrong youll here them bleat their complaints, and some will get up from the table. Of course sheep being natural followers they all end up leaving the table and youre back to square one.
