It will be like working as a teacher assistant. Helping around the class, printing materials, setting tables, helping students with maths, literacy and science. Sometimes you could be asked to help them with guided reading or read to them during reading time. Unless you're doing a postgraduate or placement year then you'd be expected to do much more and take on a role of an actual teacher and teach. But you've stated it's work experience.
In terms of what not to do not be shy and quite! Interact and communicate with the teacher and the children. Don't use foul language in front of the children. Try not to come in late after breaks.
