A few of our finds from yesterday all found at Mappleton. Couple of nice ammonites,piece of belamite and the other two were not sure about but we think there some kind of clam/shell,any help identifying these two would be much appreciated.

Welcome to the forum!

Picture 1 is a shell (posh word for it is bivalve, as it has two valves), perhaps Pholadomya (that's its "Latin" name, which is what geologists use).

In picture 5 the top one is another bivalve, Latin name Cardinia.

Picture 6 is, as you obviously know, an ammonite, Latin name, probably, Dactylioceras. I'm not sure about the ammonite in picture 5, but somebody on here will know!

Hello, the ammonite in 5 looks like Pleuroceras cf. solare.

greetings, Bert
the search is as valuable as the finds...
