Holiday Pay for Temp Staff?

I'm sort of on a temp contract where I am at the moment as I came in as a stand-in for a lady who had an accident. Looks like she's not coming back though so I'm here to stay for now. Company might not survive past November though so doubt I'll be given a permanent contract.

No holiday/sick pay mentioned in current contract as it was meant to be short term

Have been here nearly 6 months and planning to take a few days leave in August. So far have had a few days off due to nanny sick/kids sick etc. without pay. Didn't have any issues with that as the bosses have been very leniant with my absences - didn't do one single full week in March! (then again it didn't cost them anything )

However as in August I will have been here approx. 8 Months I thought I probably will be entitled to something?

Can anybody enlighten me on what my entitlement is in simple terms?

If I ask my boss then he probably just send me away to find out anyhow so thought I preempt

When I was a temp with an agency we accrued holiday so I would have thought you should be entitled to something
