    Re: Jotters.

    Yes the paper for rough notes was so easy to put a hole in.

    I suppose they thought well theyre rough notes so why not use low quality paper.
    Theyd have been better off just using high quality paper for jotters then.

    As big tim says it was like a cross between ordinary paper and paper towels.

      Re: Jotters.

      I had loads of exercise books at school but they all had decent quality paper. Homework diaries started being used in Y3 when kids got regular homework.

      Did any teachers ever make kids rewrite the contents of their exercise books because of things like sketching pictures in them? It never happened in my schools but I have heard that it was once quite commonplace.

        At secondary school we had jotters, which were referred to as 'rough books'. I think they had blue covers and were of an inferior paper quality to normal exercise books. Some teachers were happy to let us write straight into our exercise books, but one in particular made us write down everything in our rough book and then transfer it neatly to our exercise book at home.

          We had Rough Books if this means anything/or adds up to similar

          In first two years at Secondary we had to "wallpaper" our rough books for English in-particular so everyone (Teachers and Kids) knew which was Rough and which was Best!!

            Re: Jotters.

            They had more pages than an average exercise book and felt as if they were made on recycled paper - I never used to like using them because of the roughness of the books and paper inside.

              These efinitley sound look "Rough Books" I think George (which we had for our Core Subjects) like Maths, English and General Science at my first Secondary and definitley of inferior qaulity compared to "Best Books"!!

                    Thank goodness my school never had a fountain - the nearest we had to that was our swimming lessons.

                      Yeah it'd be Danny Kendall all over again,like he did in Series 10 indeed George!

                      Personaly though - yeah my first secondary was a Sink School (so they never bothered to check them properly), but my 2nd School was better and they did check properly - regardless i saw no point in Jotters/Homework Diary's to have signed!

                        The thing about jotters is that they weren't much different to exercise books - why not write you work in an exercise book instead?

                          We had rough books in secondary school - I remember they had orange covers, and yes, really poor quality paper. I filled mine with doodles. Could only use pencil or biro to write in it, if you used a fountain pen it would smudge hugely!

                              My mum (mam) kept all my old primary school books, i still have them now 50 years later...yes they were blue "exercise book", had them out a few months ago reminising and having a good laugh at the backward numbers and letters. Some of my stories were hillarious....ahh, the imagination of a 7 year old child

                                Talking of Diary's - ourr's often doubled as "said Jotters" Lol , but who else just got your Parents etc to sign for a load of rubbish that was wrote that you had done in your Homework Diary??

                                This was so all the time for me (and more so when in 4th Year - Year 10 in Today's currency) I went a whole week subbing my School Shirt for a Polo Shirt .... until certain Teachers sussed and it then gottan wrote down in "said Diary)!!!
