Here is one way:
% Pretend data [Use your actual data instead]
M = randn(100,20);
% Reshape into the slices needed for standard deviation
M3 = reshape(M,100,5,4);
% Take standard deviation along dimension 2
S3 = std(M3,0,2); % FYI, the 0 here means "use sample, not population std dev". (See documentation.)
% Reshape back to 2-d
S = reshape(S3,100,4);

M = rand(100,20);
Mstd5 = reshape(std(reshape(M, size(M,1), 5, []), [], 2), size(M,1), []);
ans = 1×2
100 4
