The first of Newsround's four TV bulletins today began with Leah saying "Hello, happy half-term everyone, you're live with Newsround for Monday's top stories ... "

First Newsround bulletin on Monday 21st Oct 2013

The second Newsround bulletin, at 8.18am, some four minutes earlier than scheduled on CBBC's website began -

Leah: Hello, morning, you're live with Newsround this Monday morning. No school for many of you, so stay right where you are for some of this ...

However, it seems the vast majority of Newsround's audience were not on half-term holiday, although some schools were closed for staff training. Experience has shown that the BBC is disinclined to apologise for any confusion caused as a result of the mistake.
