You can also use DATEPART to get any piece of a datetime value:

SELECT DATEPART(datepart,date)
where datepart is:

Datepart Abbreviations 
year     yy, yyyy 
quarter  qq, q 
month    mm, m 
dayofyear dy, y 
day      dd, d 
week     wk, ww 
weekday  dw 
hour     hh 
minute   mi, n 
second   ss, s 
millisecond ms

select cast(month(datefield) as varchar(2)) + '-' + cast(year(datefield) as varchar(4))
from table1

this will return Month-Year
