Today, our Year 1 and Year 2 children have been using the Simpsons Movie website to create avatars.

'In computing, an avatar is the graphical representation of the user, or the user's alter ego, or character.' (Wikipedia, Nov 12).

Avatars can be used instead of photographs online to provide everyone, especially children, with additional security.

The children had to select physical attributes and various colours to create lifelike cartoon characters.

How well did these children capture their likenesses, do you think?
