Column addition: carrying to the thousands column

Introduced in the Year 4 curriculum as: "Add and subtract numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods of columnar addition and subtraction where appropriate"

When doing column addition, if you get a carry in the hundreds column at the end of the sum, put it straight into the thousands column.
