you may need to use Date()  instead of Date

from sunday through thursday, use this

select sum([FieldName])
from tableName
where [dateField] between Dateadd("d", -7 - Weekday(Date(), 2),date()) and dateadd("d",-3-weekday(date(),2),Date())

This should do. Find first and last date of this week, subtract one week for both, and subtract further two from the last date (Saturday) to obtain Thursday:

select
  sum([FieldName])
from
  tableName
where
  [dateField] between
    DateAdd("d", 1 - WeekDay(Date(), 1) - 7, Date())
    And
    DateAdd("d", 7 - WeekDay(Date(), 1) - 7 - 2, Date());
