    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"!!

    I am almost certain that I dropped one in a puddle one rainy day and it almost disintegrated.
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    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!

    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)!!!
