Blood consists of four major components: 10:04:22:10:07 • plasma – the liquid part of the blood, mainly water and containing dissolved substances • • • red cells – to carry oxygen white cells – to fight infection platelets – to aid in the formation of blood clots when a blood vessel is cut.

The amount of subject knowledge here is relatively small but introduces the important processes that unite living things. The National Curriculum for Science programme of study states that at KS1 pupils should be taught the differences between things that are living and things that have never been alive; that animals, including humans, move, feed, grow, use their senses and reproduce; to relate life processes to animals and plants found in the local environment. At KS2 this is developed and they should be taught that the life processes common to humans and other animals include nutrition, movement, growth and reproduction; that the life processes common to plants include growth, nutrition and reproduction; to make links between life processes in familiar animals and plants and the environments in which they are found.

Complex organisms are made of many cells of differing types, each with their own particular job. Groups of the same cells bound together are known as tissues (such as muscles and nerves), while organs are composed of a number of tissues working together for a particular function or functions. Cells with different functions have special features that allow them to perform that function (for example, sperm cells have tails so that they can swim to meet an egg cell ovum). Plants have cells that can also produce food by photosynthesis (see Chapter 6, ‘Green plants’).
