Year 6 focussed their learning during Science Day on taste. Our first investigation aimed to prove a scientific theory that children prefer sweet foods and dislike bitter tasting foods.
 Are you a supertaster? Well...Year 6 aimed to find out if they were by counting the number of fungiform papillae on their tongues. We painted our tongues with blue food colouring and repeated the counting 4 times and took an average to determine the total number. Our observations found that the majority of children were classed as tasters which backed up the scientific evidence.
