What does a nursery nurse do in a school - could you perhaps pick some things off the job description document so that we have a better idea of what job you are actually applying for, as you haven't said it's a classroom assistant position.

I would read up on EYFS, in a nut shell, talk about your awareness of child to adult ratios importance of enabling the children's environment.
I would use an example of a child who's interest is trains to encourage them to engage in creative activities, dip the trains in paint and move it across paper, this also includes Communication , Language and Literacy as well as creative development.
When the interviewers say, have you got any qus, have something at the ready, ie,how does this setting go about involving parents, this covers 2.2 of the EYFS.
Good luck!

Just memorise four then talk about the change from foundation stage to EYFS and how beneficial you see it that children now lead their play enabling them to learn through their interests, how it promotes concentration in children, waffle waffle!
again good luck smile
