Al is being oxidized: therefore reducing agent
Cu is being reduced: therefore oxidizing agent
Hope that helps
First of all, do you know what it means for a species to be oxidized or reduced? And do you know what an oxidizing agent is (reducing agent)?

oxidised: Al -> Al^+3
reduced: Cu^+2 ->Cu
Reducing agent: Al->Al^+3 + 3e^-
oxidising agent: Cu^+2 + 2e^- -> Cu
(NOTE: Al^+3= aluminium to the power of positive 3
3e^-= 3 electrons [e to the power of negative is short for electrons))
