Children only allowed access to "rough paper" on Friday afternoons - is this normal?

I didn't know about this until yesterday - is it usual for children not to be allowed plan paper for writing/drawing? I have a Y1 and a Y2 who both have a fair bit of "choosing time" - but apparently they can't do writing or drawing because they aren't allowed "rough paper" unless it's Friday afternoon

Is this a standard thing? I find it surprising.

Thought this was going to be about toilet paper!

I don't think it would be in their interests to restrict bog roll to Friday afternoons grin

nope, I mean "rough paper" as in cruddy old plain paper they can use for drawing and writing

I'm a bit bemused to find that they don't have it for 'choosing time' unless it's Friday - surely if children want to write or draw this is a good thing?

I wonder if they would mind if I sent my two in with a notebook each?

Sounds unusual. Ask the teacher. At the DDs school there is a tray with scrap paper that the children have free access to.

I quizzed 'em pretty thoroughly TE, they were very sure!
