The required next term of the given sequence is Yttrium

EXPLANATION:

At the outset we note that:

*** Fe is the chemical symbol for 'Iron', which corresponds to the first term

*** Br is the chemical symbol for 'Bromine', which corresponds to the second term

*** U is the chemical symbol for 'Uranium', which corresponds to the third term

*** Ar is the chemical symbol for 'Argon', which corresponds to the fourth term

Concatenating the above symbols, we obtain FeBrUAr or which when expressed in sentence case becomes Februar. This suggests the month of February, which is accomplished by adding the letter 'y', in the small form or in the capital form.
Now, we note that "Y" corresponds to the chemical symbol for "Yttrium".

Consequently, the required next term of the given sequence is Yttrium
