    Very funny = made you laugh
    great fun = enjoyable (don't use 'very')

    I would say "It was lots of fun", but "great" is OK too.

    yes we can use that phrase. It was great fun

    Is it Thanking you or Thankyou?
    That is when wiiting a reply to a letter

    It was a great fun
    That wouldn't work. "a" modifies non-count "fun".
    Try,

    It was a fun time.

    It's two words, thank you/Thank you.
