FreeBSD slice/partiton setup question

I have a question regarding FreeBSD slices/partitions.
I have a disk with linux partitions with the following layout:
sda1, sda2, and sda3 are primary partitions, sda5 and above are logical partitions on an extended partition.
I would like to have a similar setup with FreeBSD.
The goal is that the / root, /home, /usr/local and /home/user1 etc. filesystems should be on independent slices/partitions so that I could mount them independently from linux.
How can I do this in FreeBSD?
Can I have slices with only one partition occupying the whole slice?
Can I do something like the following:
where the partitions (a, e, b) occupy the whole slice where they reside on?
