Quiet at the back please! Accessory company Proporta has launched a timely range of iPhone 4 cases: its Back To School range is a four-strong range of iPhone 4 cases with a firmly nostalgic feel. The hardshell case designs variously feature the periodic table, a times table grid, a doodle pad and a chalkboard complete with accompanying chalk.

We’re not sure whether little Joe will appreciate one of these slipped into his satchel at the start of the school term, but we can certainly envisage many a Sir or Miss receiving them as ‘ironic’ gifts from well-meaning relatives. Of course, present one to your little darling as a well done gift for getting into the best school in the neighbourhood – complete with an iPhone 4, of course – and we doubt you’ll hear too many complaints. 

The  Proporta Back To School Chalkboard, Times Table, Periodic Table and Doodle cases will go onsale at the start of term. Each will cost £19.99.
