Even this beginner knows that 1S - 4S implies a relatively weak holding by responder. Serious raised eyebrow there. I think merrick has the right sequence - change suit to force another bid, and jump to show extra strength. Opener initially thinks hearts are going to be trumps, but it doesn't matter - responder will always make sure it's spades.
