A syllable is part of a word which has one vowel sound. For example:
El-e-phant has 3 syllables, whereas Chil-dren has only 2. Sun has 1 syllable and was has 1 so does ball.
If you need a bit of practise to understand syllables, then work out how many syllables these words have:
Joe had a hair cut (5)
His hair was curly and long (7)
He waited ages (5)
For his hair to be cut short (7)
Then his mum paid the money (7)
